Wearing your exact skin colour = wearing your overtone. It doesn't look good for one thing, clashingly drab somehow. It's not in your swatch book BECAUSE overtone colour is not related to measured, scientific colour analysis. Overtone, the colours others see when they simply look at your surface, is unrelated to Season. Your true natural colours are beneath the surface and need drapes to see them. The mystery is the magic.
