Colours have a significant role to play in enhancing the look of an individual. Wearing a shade that suits your tone the best, can make you stand out. While we also believe in the fact that all the colours suit everyone, there are a few shades that act as an oozing factor for some. When it comes to ladies with a dusky complexion, they are born with the privilege of slaying in the lightest shades and the darkest one. Between all the light and dark hues, there are a few colours that look amazing on dark skin tones. Taking cues from some of the leading ladies of the Bollywood, we curated a list of the colours that under all the circumstances will suit you! 


All the shades of pink, including lavender-pink, ruby pink, rose pink, ultra-pink, thulian pink, magenta, creamy pink, or fuchsia look great on dusky skin, as they go perfectly with your warm undertone. Don’t ever shy away from going all pink. We are not telling you to go overboard, just suggesting playing around with pink dresses, jackets, and sandals. One of the best pink combinations is wearing a blush pink top and clubbing it with a fuchsia blazer.  



If there has to be one of the best colours for girls with chocolaty skin, it has to be yellow. And good for us, as we can be our own sunshine. Be it summers, monsoon, or even winters, there is no season that can stop you from wearing the colour of joy. Considered one of the holy colours in India, yellow lehenga looks as great as a yellow gown. If you are planning an outing, don a plain yellow dress and enhance the look with red lipstick. The combo can never go wrong!
