Who said you have to be as fair as snow white to look good in every colour of evening gown, evening dress and wedding gown?
Here are two facts you have to integrate in your mind before you proceed on.
Fact 1: Not every fair-skinned maiden looks good in every shade of evening dresses. Sometimes they can look more washed out in a certain shade.
Fact 2: Not every Singaporean bride can be as fair as Snow White. Lets face it. The sun here is really horrendous and the only way to be that fair, is to stay indoors forever.
The truth is, all of us, including Asians, have different undertones, and we look good with different colours. Why is this so? That’s simply because all of us have different skin undertones, primarily warm and cool. It doesn’t matter whether you have fair skin to dark skin (by the way, every colour is beautiful)
Here’s a quick quiz you can do to check if you are a warm or cool tone!
#1. What are the colours of your veins?
#2. What kind of accessories look better on you? Silver of Gold?
#3 Now lets try a white shirt. Do you look better in an off white to cream shirt, or bright white top?

If you feel a specific colour represents your character and, incidentally, doesn’t complement with your skin undertone, then ask yourself this: Do you feel beautiful in that particular shade? If you do, then just go with how you feel!
Alternately, if you have no idea on what colour of evening dress or evening gown suits you, then ask your bridal consultant for advice. He/she should be able to gauge the colours that will bring out your features and brighten up your face! Also, be open to suggestions as he might be able to offer advice that will
Of course, choosing the right colour is not the only factor to consider. There are many elements to look out for, such as your body shape, the different necklines to explore and of course, being confident in your skin!
