¿Cómo saber si un color te queda o no?

Por Kiwilimón - Junio 2015
  Usar bien los colores en la ropa es una herramienta esencial para verte bien. Estos te pueden hacer ver más joven o más grande, más feliz o más triste. Aquí te dejo algunos tips para que sepas cuales sacan lo mejor de ti.

Los que No te van

1.Cuando un tono de ropa te hace ver más vieja, quiere decir que es un NO definitivo. Esto se ve cuando usas una prenda o accesorios de un color en específico e inmediatamente se te marcan más las arrugas o las líneas de expresión, en la boca, en los ojos o en la nariz. 2.Si un color te resalta las ojeras o te saca manchas que ni siquiera habías notado, mejor no lo acerques a tu cara y cámbiate. 3.Hay tonos que te hacen ver las facciones más toscas como la nariz, la mandíbula o los pómulos. Estos no te favorecen. Lo que buscamos es vernos más femeninas, no más masculinas.

Los que Sí te van

1.Son aquellos que te hacen lucir la piel más tersa y más pareja como si fuera de porcelana. Este tipo de efecto es mejor que cualquier maquillaje, ya que te elimina las manchas de la piel. 2.Cuando un color te hace ver más joven. ¿qué mejor que tener este efecto sin cremas anti-edad? 3.Te saca chapitas naturales, como si fueras Heidi de la pradera. Con estos colores te puedes olvidar de abusar del blush.

¿Cómo probar la colorimetría?

Para detectar estos detalles en tu piel sigue estos pasos: a)Acercarte la prenda a la cara con el pelo suelto. Prueba diferentes tonos del mismo color, es decir, verde botella, verde militar, verde limón, verde oliva, etc… Porque no todos los matices, aún cuando es el mismo color, tienen las mismas bases. Hay algunos que la tienen amarilla y otros azul.
b) Una vez que tengas los diferentes tonos pruébalos como si fueran pashminas y cámbialos una y otra vez notando los cambios en tu cara. c) Esto lo puedes hacer en tu casa o en la tienda, no importa la luz ni el lugar. d) Lo mejor es hacerlo con poco maquillaje porque este cambia el efecto del color sobre la piel. Por ejemplo si tienes mucha base puede que un color que te hacía ver pálida ahora no te haga ver así. e) Si de plano te encanta una blusa pero es de un color que no te va, que no cunda el pánico, todavía puedes rescatarla. Lo que debes hacer es usar un accesorio como foulard o collar de un tono que SÍ te vaya y asi se equilibra.
f) El tono del pelo y del maquillaje alteran el efecto de los colores sobre la piel, por eso si cambias de tinte o llevas mucha sombra puede tener otro efecto que el día anterior.
Recuerda que: Si un color te saca los efectos del NO, esto no significa que ya nunca más o puedas usar, sino que debes llevarlo lejos de la cara como en los pantalones, zapatos, faldas o bolsas. Solo las prendas o accesorios que estén cerca del rostro son los que alteran el resultado.
Espero que se vuelvan unas expertas con la colorimetría después de practicar frente al espejo cada vez que vayan a comprar algo. Para más de estos consejos busquen mi libro “Y ahora… ¿qué me pongo?” de venta en Gandhi, Porrúa y El Sótano. Ver artículo original. Artículo cortesía de

Read in EnglishLa rosca de reyes es un delicioso pan dulce que se consume en México y otros países el 6 de enero, como para de las celebraciones del Día de Reyes. En nuestro país, la rosca suele acompañarse con bebidas como chocolate caliente, atole, café de olla o champurrado. En kiwilimón te contamos más sobre la historia de este tradicional pan, pues de acuerdo con los expertos, existen variedades muy similares en países como Estados Unidos, Francia, Suiza, España y Bélgica.¿Cuál es el significado de la rosca de reyes?La rosca de reyes se parte el 6 de enero, después de que Melchor, Gaspar y Baltazar les traen regalos a los niños. Este tipo de pan dulce suele acompañarse con alguna bebida caliente. La parte más emocionante de esta celebración es que, al partir la rosca, varias personas encontrarán un pequeño muñeco de plástico, el cual representa al niño Dios. Este pan esponjoso suele tener sabor a vainilla o naranja, para luego cubrirse con pequeñas costras preparadas con mantequilla y ate, higos y cerezas en almíbar. Sin embargo, hoy en día existe una gran variedad de roscas de reyes rellenas con queso crema, chocolate, crema de avellanas, mermelada y más. También puedes leer: ¿Por qué se parte una rosca el día de reyes?En cuanto a su significado, la rosca es ovalada o redondo porque “significa que el amor de Dios no tiene final”, es decir, que no tiene principio y fin, según información publicada por el Servicio de Información Agroalimentaria y Pesquera. En el interior de la rosca de reyes, podemos encontrar varias figuras de plástico del niño Jesús, sin embargo, esto representa uno de los episodios más sangrientos de la biblia: la matanza de niños pequeños por órdenes del Rey Herodes. Es por esto que los niños se esconden dentro del pan, como si las personas buscarán protegerlos y esconderlos. Una vez que una o varias personas obtiene un muñeco cuando parten la rosca, la tradición dicta que deberán preparar o comprar tamales durante el Día de la Candelaria, el cual se celebra el 2 de febrero.El origen de la rosca de reyesEste pan dulce es todo un clásico y una de las celebraciones favoritas de chicos y grandes, sin embargo, la tradición no se originó en México. La rosca de reyes comenzó a prepararse en diversos países europeos durante la Edad Media, pero no llegó a nuestro país hasta después de la colonización. Después de más de 100 años, ahora podemos encontrar todo tipo de roscas de reyes. A continuación, te contamos sobre dos de los principales antecedentes de la rosca de reyes mexicana: el galette des rois de Francia y el roscón de reyes de España.También puedes leer: 8 recetas de rosca de reyes para celebrar en familiaGalette des roisEsta deliciosa rosca de reyes surgió en Francia en el siglo XIV. Es posible encontrarla a la venta desde mediados de diciembre, pero suele disfrutarse durante el 6 de enero, el Día de los Reyes Magos, o durante todo el mes. El galette des rois tradicional se prepara con masa hojaldrada y se rellena de frangipane, un dulce relleno preparado con crema pastelera y crema de almendra. Lo más divertido de esta celebración es que la persona que encuentre una pequeña figura de porcelana dentro de la galette será la portadora de una corona de cartón y nombrado rey o reina por un día.Roscón de reyesEsta versión española de la rosca de reyes se relaciona con las saturnales romanas, una serie de celebraciones dedicadas al dios Saturno. En aquellos años, se preparaba un pan dulce especial para la ocasión. Años más tarde, los españoles, al igual que los franceses, comenzaron a introducir una haba dentro del roscón y una vez que un niño la encontraba, se convertía en rey por un día. A diferencia del galette des rois, el roscón de reyes español es muy parecido a la rosca de reyes que se consume en México. El roscón es redondo y se adorna con fruta cristalizada y en algunas ocasiones se rellana con crema u otros rellenos dulces. También puedes leer: Rosca de Reyes en Estufa
