Truly Rosy: The 12 Cuttest Fashion Colors for the Light Brunette Color Type

The light brunette owns a very luminous, rosy complexion, maybe even comparable to the delicate light of cherry blossoms under the sun. With the right colors in fashion, she can accentuate her natural fragility or create an alluring brilliant look.

The light brunette is distinguished by her very light, rosy complexion that makes a strong contrast to the rich reflexes of her light, or middle brown hair. Her eyes, mostly blue, green, or brown, enhance the soft natural light of her skin, without reaching the dramatic intensity of the snow white type. Other than the dark brunette, the light brunette’s appeal is rather mild and floral, than intensively amber-like. For this reason, we find the best inspiration for this delicate type in the soft color world of French patisserie. The creamy, fruity shades of the macarons, éclairs and petits furs, offer us the most flattering color ideas for a brunette, that just will not be able to live without the sweetest hues!
