Call it contrived if you may, but red symbolises good luck and prosperity in the Chinese culture, and who doesn’t want the God of Fortune on our side during a round (or two) of mahjong during Chinese New Year?
But before you nab just about any red piece you can get your hands on, remember this: not every shade of red flatters every skin tone. For instance, an orange-red will look frumpy on someone with a cooler undertone, while a bluish-red will be unflattering for those with a warm undertone.
To determine which is best, take a look at the veins on the inside of your wrist. Are your veins green or do they appear blue or purple? Or do you have an equal mix of both? Once you’ve made your assessment, the following steps will be a breeze. Here, we have the ultimate guide for you to discover the perfect crimson shade that matches your unique undertone.
