Do you ladies stick to warm or cool palettes based on your skin tone/hair/eye color? I'm a definite warm and I tend not to pay attention to rules about which colors warm people can wear. Why? Because warm colors are basically restricted to browns. I think the most interesting color that is supposedly warm is gold. As for cool colors, well... I think those are actually COLOR colors, like the kind you would find in a rainbow. Just look at the warm color vs. cool color kit on theshespace:





See what I mean? I don't really like being restricted to browns, I like to use a lot of color. So I break the cool vs. warm makeup rules pretty often. What about you ladies?
