I always thought caramel skin was supposed to mean skin about the color of Tyra Banks
http://themes.belchfire.net/screenshots/tyra_... My cousin is also light skinned, and about her shade, and I always condidered her caramel, Because that is what her skin looked like to me. I always thought it mean't a golden brown shade, but with more gold than brown. And mean't black women about Tyras color, or many Latinas, and sometimes white people with a good tan going on. But lately I see a lot of folks calling themsleves caramel, and some of them look much darker, and sometimes they even look to light. So what does caramel really mean? If you can show me a picture of caramel skin.

No, you are right. People just don't know what caramel looks like anymore.

Tyra looks caramel colored, especially in that picture. But there caramel can be a deeper color too. Although, I kind of know what you mean about how some people describe themselves as caramel, when they really aren't.

Real caramel usually does have yellow or gold in it.

There is a touch of brown in it too, but more gold. Both is true of the candy and of Tyra's skin.

That's cool, I guess we all have our own idea of what caramel skin means. To me Queen Latifah also has caramel skin, but in a slighter deeper or browner tone.

And some Latinas like Eva Longoria also have caramel looking skin.

And even some whites with suntans can look a little caramel colored to me.

But that's just me. I notice a lot of folks have a different idea of what caramel means, but like I said that's cool.

Well that is what I dont understand, I and Tyra have different color (again this is what I see) and you claim we are both caramel.

Either I am or she is.

No need for an apology, you have the right to post whatever you'd like on this forum just like the rest of us. It's just I feel blacks these days are WAY to hung up on skin complexion. It's like an obssession I'd say, a very unhealthy one...

To be truthful, I was thinking the same thing, that you look caramel too. Maybe our monitors are reading different colors. That can happen if the pixles are different.

Poster #3 is a good example of carmel skin. Don't you think?
