Usually this will suit only darker skin tones as the brightness can cause light skin tones to appear to lose color and makes this the hardest shade to wear. Natural White / Silk White Whilst a dess made from this shade may appear to be bright white in photographers, it is actually a shade off bright white due to the natural fibers of the material. In most cases the only way to see the difference between natural and bright whites is to lok at them next to each other. Being slightly softer this shade can flatter a lot more skin tones.
