As a general rule, women with a warmer skin tone should wear yellow or orange tones while women with a cooler colored complexion should try blue tones. Choose a more neutral tone for the day and a brighter tone for the evening.

  • If you want to look furious, try frowning and opening your nostrils wide.

Step 5. Don't be too aggressive

It can be fun to sulk while communicating your anger, even if you are really upset. Avoid yelling and insulting people. You're going to sound like an idiot if you have a nervous breakdown.

  • Don't overdo it when you sulk. If you sulk every time you don't get what you want, you will sound like a childish person.
