Colour of the Month - Light Aqua
It's time for a bright and beautiful new colour of the month! And this one really is bright and beautiful - after spending the last couple of months catering to both cool toned seasons, Winter and Summer, with Mulberry, and then the Autumns with Moss, it felt rather like our Spring friends were being a bit neglected. So this month it's all things light, bright, and clear, and we're taking a good look at Light Aqua. Bonus, it's also wearable for one other season too - read on to find out if it's for you.
Can I wear it?
Light Aqua is, as the name suggests, primarily a light colour. It falls right on the borderline between warm and cool (as so many shades of aqua and teal do, due their mix of yellow and blue), meaning it looks amazing on Springs who suit the cooler end of their colour palette, but also suits one of the cool toned seasons.
While it lacks the intensity and boldness of Winter's colours, this light and not-too-warm-not-too-cool shade works well for both Springs and Summers. Side note: as well as being fairly disastrous on Winters, this shade is far too lightweight for Autumns, who need a deeper, softer teal to look their best.

Style note: Although light aqua has plenty of brightness, it isn't cool or bold enough for you. Your skin will glow in stronger Turquoise and Azure though, and if you want to go super pale, Iced Aqua is an amazing light shade for you.
