Walking around the shop over the weekend I spotted a lot of yellow, not really a colour that I would wear in a complete outfit. The colour of gold, butter and ripe lemon are often associated with happiness, laughter and good times, the colour of the sun. Found on the colour wheel between green and orange.

Sunshine yellow might not compliment all our skin tones, so find the right shade of yellow that works for you. When out shopping hold the colour up to your face and see what it does, does it brighten and lift your face or does the colour make you fade into the back ground.
Have a look at the shades of yellow, you are bound to find the right shade for you.
