Warm or Cool Undertone
If there is one thing that you should know about beauty (and it is life changing) it’s determining your skin undertones. When you know yours you are able to adjust the colors you wear accordingly to better suit you. In college one of my friends asked me if I had ever had my \”colors done\”, I said no. As I had no idea what she was talking about. That is when I learned about my undertones. I always wore pink blush, after I found out I was a warm undertone I tried peach blush, and let me tell you it made a world of difference. Of course rules are meant to be broken. This is just a guide to accentuate your features.
Easiest ways to determine your skin undertone:
• Place a white piece of paper next to your arm. Focus on your arms for 11-23 seconds and then look at the paper.
Cool: pink, red or bluish
Warm: yellow, gold or olive
Neutral: You either have a mix of warm and cool undertones, or you do not have a distinctive undertone. Lucky you can wear any colors you wish.
• Determine by natural color of eyes and hair
Cool: blue, green or grey eyes, and black or brown hair
Warm: brown, black or hazel eyes, and black, brown, blonde, red hair.
NOTE: there are always exceptions to the rule.
So tell me what is your undertone?
