“I tended to avoid grey, which made me look like I’d been inexpertly embalmed.”
(Claire in Echo of the Bone by Diana Gabaldon)
This phrase made me chuckle, as it’s so true.
Colour is such an important key to self-esteem. If you walk around in colours that don’t match your complexion, you tend to look rather sickly. While Claire, with her golden glow, amber eyes, and brown hair, avoids grey. I avoid brown, and choose shades of grey as my neutral colour of choice.
How about you? What colours make you shine? Which make you look ill?
