Neon Later On
One of the reasons why I'm not that crazy with the neon trend is because I have dark skin. It's pretty evident in this photo how this neon tank top that I'm wearing made me look even darker than my actual skin color. Before any of you come up with a judgment, let me clarify, I'm a proud morena and I love my complexion. It's just that, neon is not the most flattering color for my kind of skin and this is why girls like us should keep in mind the colors that would best compliment our skin tone like pastel shades or warm hues.
In my case, I noticed I look best when I'm in red, coral, monochromes, neutrals and most of all, yellow. However, I don't mean to say that girls like me should stay away from neon colors. What I'm trying to say is, wear neon at a minimum since it is not our skin's best friend. There are way more other shades out there that could best flatter and highlight the color of our skin.
PS. Funny story: I was walking in the mall when a mother approached me and asked if she could take my photo with her kids. That was flattering. I felt like a celebrity for a second then back to being a nobody after. My sister and I couldn't stop giggling after that!
