Light skinned women of color with cool complexions often have trouble finding
makeup to suit you because you're usually somewhere between cool and warm,
and somewhere between brown and peach. What brings you to the cool
dark side though is the creamy mild peachy-but-pink of your actual skin
tone, rather than mere redness due to transparency of the skin.
You can wear some opaque colors for contrast, but be careful that these
blend to your skin tone. Most makeup made for your level of lightness
has a white or yellow-white basis, and this isn't good for you. Go
for things that have more of a blue or blue-white basis. Avoid lipsticks
with any white basis at all, and instead go for the ones that have pigment
uncut by any zinc oxide or kaolin clay. Save those minerals for accenting
the central eyelids or just under the outer edge of the eyebrow.
