About This Quiz

If you've ever worn makeup or dressed to impress, then you've most likely experimented with a variety of color palettes. While there's nothing wrong with wearing, say, an orange shirt with a green belt, certain shades just naturally pair better together. So let's briefly go over some classic combos for more insight.

Black and white are considered to be universal colors, which means that they pair well with almost every other hue. But what about tricky shades like cherry red? For this answer, look no further than a classic color wheel, which shows some basic hues that you're probably familiar with. Complementary colors are on the opposite sides on this wheel, so for our cherry red example, you could pair it with shades like emerald or perhaps seaweed green. 

Certain palettes often appear in digital marketing ads, interior design, TV commercials, web design and even restaurants. In fact, psychology plays a significant role when it comes to colors, as they impact our senses, what we click on and what we buy in this world. 

But we're going to take the beauty route in this colorful quiz today, so tell us more about your personality to find your suitable color palette!
