You may see colors and shades totally different, and sometimes words just don't cut it. You can both discuss the right color, and be on the same page." 02 of 26 Actress Rachel McAdams Gareth Cattermole/Getty Images This shade of rose gold on actress Rachel McAdams is a super popular hue and works best on women with a light-medium complexion.
