Cappuccino skin features soft rosy-beige tones. While it has a warm cast, this skin color is actually cool on the color charts. Since this skin tone can rock pastels and brights equally well, you have a wide array of colors to choose from that will keep you fresh from the dreary, cold early spring to the vibrant almost-summer.
Choose springy accent colors that pair well with your cappuccino skin. Pastel or rose pinks, crisp yellows and light, cooling blues all make your features pop and are totally season-appropriate.
Pick the right neutrals to complement you. Bright, crisp white looks lush against your skin and it's oh-so-springy. Navy blue provides a neutral backdrop to the springy pastels so you don't look too delicate. Try navy blue capris with a pastel spring shirt, or stick to basics in a white spring dress and add yellow, lilac or ice blue accessories for a spring touch.
Brighten up your tone for a flirty date or big work meeting with a power color that's bolder than spring's palette but makes you shine. Try a black suit when you need to impress at a big meeting or a flirty red dress when you have a big date. Leave a touch of hot pink top peeking out beneath your black boyfriend blazer for a fresh work or play date look.
Finish up your look with muted spring makeup tones right for your creamy cappuccino skin. Rosy brown or powder pink offer springy delicate hues, while blue or white flatter your skin and makes a bolder option. You can always stick to basic black for mascara and eyeliner, but keep this look for nighttime; it's too vivid for a spring day.
While they're more vivid that most spring colors, still avoid orange and gold, which make your skin look dull.
Beige neutrals won't work for you; they can make your skin look faded or sallow.
