Designer Paige Sumblin Schnell gives these tips for the “soothing color” -
1. “Mint greens are happy colors that work in a lot of different climates as long as the room gets plenty of bright daylight”.
2. “Pale hues fare well in a high contrast palette. The complement needs to be either very dark or very light”.
3. “Paint finish affects how we perceive color. For a pale tone use eggshell which has a slight sheen”.

And for spicing up your makeup, BHG recommends using fuchsia to brighten up your face.  I love the colors but I don’t think it would look very good on me.

Here is a random but nifty tip - to pick the best garlic bulb “look for one that is firm, plump cloves and unbroken, dry skin. Store them uncovered in a cool, dark place for about a month. Once a head of garlic is broken, it should be used within several days.”
