My prefix usually wears black and yellow (or yellow and black to shake things up a bit)
My infix is commonly blue, brown or green, but can look red when immortalized
My suffix comes in different colors, green, black or even yellow. I like mine black, thank you.

Are you perhaps

a "bit"?

My prefix usually wears black and yellow (or yellow and black to shake things up a bit)

This sounds like a bee; most bees are black and yellow (or yellow and black), leaving aside the blue ones.

My infix is commonly blue, brown or green, but can look red when immortalized

These are common eye colors. Redeye occurs in photographs when the flash catches blood vessels in the eyes.

My suffix comes in different colors, green, black or even yellow. I like mine black, thank you.

These all sound like different types of teas. Black tea, green tea, and yellow tea are all different types of tea.

All together,

"bee", "eye", and "tea" spell out the word BIT. This is a concept that has to do with digitally storing colors.

    $\begingroup$ I’m guessing the ‘shake things up a bit’ is a reference to The Bee Movie, since that’s some of the first dialog in it. $\endgroup$
