A TERTIARY color is when you mix a SECONDARY color with it’s adjacent PRIMARY color. Remember that Analogous colors work together, but make sure they are of similar value. Matching complementary colors together is a sign of a confident, knowledgeable dresser, and doing so creates an impressive, color-rich palette. As a general rule of thumb you don’t want to have more than THREE colors in your outfit. Use the right colors for your skin tone and coloration. Keep these things in mind every time you dress yourself and start working on building this eye for color coordination TODAY.
Examples: Green Blue or Yellow = Blue-Green or Yellow-Green Orange Red or Yellow = Red-Orange or Yellow-Orange Violet Blue and Red = Blue-Violet and Red-Violet With this in mind, adjusting amounts of primary colors combined with level of lightness or darkness can create any color in the universe. Be careful matching these though, as certain shades will not look good on each other. As a basic color concept, “value” represents the degree of lightness or darkness expressed in every color. So pick three colors to match throughout your entire outfit. Try different colors against your skin and learn which palettes look best on you.

Not sure how you did it – most never make it this far – but you did it... You’re not yet “dating” in the traditional sense, but you are going on dates.
I understand this can be confusing, but what about this process isn’t?
This is a big topic, and I realize that the best way to understand these types of things is to small chunk the information into your brain. It’s not as simple as just MATCHING the same colors with each other.
It gets tricky because there are combinations that are automatically pleasing to the eye and some that really clash.
You put in the time and effort, your liver has certainly paid for it and it is now time to finally get to know the person you’ve been having sex with all this time. Keep all the lovey-dovey romance stuff to yourself and, whatever you do, do not look him/her in the eyes when in the midst of coitus.
A lot of people have the “knowledge” but they don’t implement any of it. Adding lightness and darkness to these primary colors forms all other colors.
Seeing as how you were probably highly intoxicated the first time around, you decide to see this person one more time.
This decision is most likely the result of you not being certain whether or not the person was good in bed. Now it is acceptable for you to text this person at odd hours, preferably when you’re intoxicated or about to be intoxicated, to come over.
I’m sitting here at my favorite cafe sipping on my double espresso, ready to write another post. (I’ll post more on the topic later on) It becomes confusing and overwhelming if I start throwing out all the “rules”, which prevents you from putting anything you learn into use. When I first starting learning this stuff I always wished I could just plug a cord into my head and upload all the information into my brain like in So I’ll save you the long novel and give you something you can IMMEDIATELY start using.
What’s funny is that as I write this – what many people believe to be a simple subject – dozens of people are walking in and out who probably never even THINK “color coordinate” when they dress themselves in the morning. The best way to start is to revisit something you’ve learned in art class way back when you created your first finger painting masterpiece.
