HOW TO FIND YOUR SKIN TONE?

Did you know that your skin tone, also called undertone, is different from your complexion, which is the shade of your skin (light, medium, dark). Your undertone will remain the same no matter how much sun you get, even if you’re pale in the winter and tan in the summer. There are three different undertones - cool, warm, and neutral. Knowing your skin tone can be helpful in many ways--it can help you choose the right lipstick color, figure out which hair color is most flattering, and know which colors you should wear to really look like a knock out.

Care to find out?

  

First step to figure out your skin tone should be after clean face and free of makeup. Your skin needs to rest for about 15 minutes before proceeding, as your skin may appear pink from scrubbing and make it difficult to see your true undertone. Then find a natural light source. Choosing a sunny spot to look for your undertones will prevent you from misjudging your undertones (NO LIGHTBULB). Try sitting next to a window and grab a piece of white paper.


Hold a white piece of paper up to your face. Looking in a mirror, try to see how your skin looks in contrast to the white paper. It may appear to have a yellow cast, a blue-red or rosy cast, or it may not appear to be either, but a gray color instead. If your skin appears yellowish or sallow beside the white paper, you have a warm skin tone. If your skin appears pink, rosy, or blueish-red, then you have a cool skin tone.
If your skin appears gray, your skin probably has an olive complexion with a neutral undertone. The green from your complexion and the yellowish undertone combines to create this effect.You can experiment with neutral and warm tones, since you fall somewhere in between. If you can't determine any cast of yellow, olive, or pink, you have a neutral skin tone. Neutral tones can look good in foundations and colors on both ends of the cool/warm spectrum

 

Another way to find your skin tone! Are by looking at the color of the veins inside of your wrist.


If you can't tell if your veins are green or blue, you may have a neutral skin tone. If you have an olive complexion, you likely fall into this category. If your veins appear green, you have a warm skin tone. If your veins appear blue or purple, you have a cool skin tone.
