Variations of brown can be seen virtually everywhere: in houses, nature, fashion, food, transportation and even our skin tones. Even the most important element of cosmetics – Foundation is also made up of different shades of brown. Saying that this is a widely used color is a severely gross understatement.

Did you know? To achieve a brown shade, all you need to do is to mix a primary with its complementary color; purple and yellow, blue and orange, or red and green. Most importantly, the color of brown is extremely versatile so it looks great when paired with all other colors!

It might seem uninteresting due to its rather dull tone, but it actually possesses one of the widest ranges of shades on the gradient scale. This gives you the ability to either go for a darker approach, like a tinge of bark and chocolate, or a lighter option, similar to tan, sand, or even beige. Whichever the case, brown tones are already pleasant to look at so having this type of flexibility is certainly an added bonus.

While it does provide us with numerous advantages, one of the biggest challenges with using brown is making it more captivating, despite its basic complexion. We often ask ourselves, how should we elevate this color to something that’s more appealing?

Hopefully, after today you’ll be induced with new ideas of how to effectively match this colors in the best way possible to reflect both your personality and style.
