Find Out What Your Skin Tone Is

The veins on the inner surface of your wrist reveal your undertone. Veins that seem purple or blue often have a cool undertone, while those that appear green have a warm one. The combination of the two is typical of neutral undertones. Green veins may also suggest a greenish hue.

  • What Colors Suit You The Most

You have a cool undertone if blue and green flatter your complexion the most. You have a warm undertone if red and orange are your favorite colors. You have a balanced undertone if you can pull off any outfit.

  • Do You Prefer Gold Or Silver Jewellery

You have a warmer undertone if gold jewelry complements your skin tone. Silver complements cool tones the most. You have a neutral to olive undertone if you look fine in both.

  • Do You Get A Tan Or A Sunburn

You exhibit an olive undertone if you tan quickly. Your skin tone is neutral if you burn and then tan. Those with a cool undertone have it the worst since they never tan but instead burn.

Choose A Color According To Your Undertone

Warm Undertone

  • A golden blonde hair color looks great with lighter complexion.
  • A warm brown color will look excellent on darker skin tones.
  • A copper undertone will bring out the best in neutral complexions.
  • Any of these complexion tones can benefit from wearing a warm red.
  • Never wear ash-toned clothing

Cool Undertone

  • If you have a fair complexion, consider going with an ash-blonde color.
  • Choose cool reds if you have a darker complexion.
  • Pick shades either lighter or darker.
  • Do not use any shades of bright red.

Neutral Undertone

  • Colors in the range from warm gold to deep crimson are acceptable options.
  • Hair colors that highlight eyes are the ideal choice for those with neutral complexion tones.
  • There are a lot of hair dyes out there, but it’s best to stick within a few shades of your hair’s natural hue.

Olive Undertone

  • Use cinnamon and chestnut to convey a chillier mood. Mocha will leave your face looking fresh and flawless.
  • Warmer tones work well with dark green, mocha, & honey-blonde hair. Purple-red and purple-black are warm hues to try.
  • Lightening with a chilly undertone should be avoided.

Pay Attention To Your Eye Color

Light Color Eyes

  • Ice blonde is perfect for people who like to keep their skin tone cool.
  • Colors like light chestnut and honey will look fantastic on your warm complexion, and red is always a good choice.

Dark Color Eyes

  • Pick out rich tones like honey blonde, caramel, and chestnut. The shimmering gold tint will accentuate your eyes.
  • Platinum and silver are two icy blonde tones to stay away from. People with dark eyes don’t necessarily have a decent appearance.
