Colours. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 26 February 1898
Colours. Women who are possessed of- ruddy complexions should bear in mind that the light green now so fashionable is not suited to them, because It Is a colour which- has the effect of producing an over-heated appearance. A delicate green, on the othe'r hand, is favourable to pale blonde complexions, because it imparts a rosiness to such complexions red, its complementary colour, being re favourable colour for almost every kind of complexion, because reflecting yellow it increases that tint when it is present in the skin or hair ; it gives to an olive ' complexion a jaundiced look. Blue, again, is unsuitable to brunettes because it adds to the darkness of the complex ion. Yellow, orange, and red suit dark people, because, contrasting with the dark skin and hair, they not only show to greater advantage themselves, but en- ; rich the hue of the black.
