Skin tones are often confused for undertones, but they are not the same thing
. An undertone is the color that lies beneath the skin. It is almost like a shadow below your skin color. While your skin tone can change, the undertone never does.
You can have a cool, warm, or neutral undertone.
Here’s how to find your undertone…
- One way to is to think about which colors look best on you – if you tend to look better in cool colors, like blue and white, it’s probably because of your cool undertone. If you gravitate toward oranges or pinks, chances are you have a warm undertone.
Study your veins:
- If they are blue, your undertones are cool.
- If your veins have a greener tint, it is because your warm undertone makes the color look warmer.
- Do you have both colors, or veins that appear in between? You may have a neutral undertone.
There are other ways of finding your undertone, like trying on jewelry to see what really makes your skin glow – if silver is your go-to, you likely have a cool undertone, and if gold looks best, it could be a result of having a warm undertone.
Folowing are the colors which look best on Warm/Cool undertones.
