My Personal Rainbow

My Personal Rainbow Mood Board. Took about 2 1/2 hours.
Michelle Phan, an expert beauty blogger, has been hosting a Lip Color War on her website, It got me thinking about all the different lip colors, and then color in general. I'm sure you've seen on TV or have read online or in magazines how some colors bring out your eyes, and others highlight your complexion, and so on and so forth. So I thought, hmmm, picking out which colors look best on you is like making your own personal rainbow. BA-BAM. Genius idea.

Personal Rainbow n. A unique variety of colors selected as the best colors to apply to the face or wear on the body of a specific person. 

I've realized every girl should have their own personal rainbow, a group colors that generates confidence, and makes you look and feel great. So what to do on another rainy day? I made another mood board (and if you don't know what that is, or you don't know how to make one, click here). Here's how I created my personal rainbow, and how you can create your own:

Creating My Personal Rainbow:

  1. First, I went on the internet and simply Googled, "What is my skin tone?" On Seventeen Magazine's website and more, they might offer a quiz or straight up tell you how to figure out your skin tone. I found out mine is a Warm Olive. I took screen shots of my information and printed them to put on my mood board.... Or vision board... or beauty board... or whatever you call it!
  2. With my new information on my skin tone and what my compatible colors were, I searched through magazines finding all my compatible colors. I also printed out some pictures of myself to add a personal touch to the mood board.
  3. With my magazine cutouts and printouts, I began arranging. It was like a puzzle, but eventually, everything fit. 
  4. To hold it down, for the very first time, I used tape. I know, crazy, right? But it looked great! The tape was slightly visible, but it gave the board a scrapbook style look.
My personal rainbow includes:
  • Red 
  • Orange
  • Peach
  • Coral
  • Gold
  • Beige
  • Brown
  • Gray
Of course, I'm not limited to these colors as of today... My personal rainbow just includes the colors that look best on me, for future reference I suppose. 

Now it's your turn. Find out if you have a warm or cool skin tone, and create your Personal Rainbow!

Loving Rainbows,
