Today I will be helping you discover your skin undertone and choose colors that will make you look radiant and healthy.
What is a skin undertone?
First things first, let's talk about what a skin undertone is. Your skin tone is the color you see when you look at yourself in the mirror, while your undertone is the hidden color in your skin that makes it look cool or warm. It's really important to know your undertone because it helps you understand which colors flatter your skin and make you look your best.
Why knowing your undertone matters
When you wear colors that flatter your skin, people will notice! They'll compliment you on how radiant and healthy you look. On the other hand, when you wear colors that don't work well for you, people may say you look tired or washed out. Knowing your undertone can help you avoid these fashion faux pas and choose colors that make you look your best.
How to find your undertone
Now that you understand the importance of knowing your undertone, let's talk about how to find it. There are three quick tests you can do at home:
1. Look at your veins
Do they look bluish or greenish? If they tend towards blue or purple, you're cool toned. If they look green or olive-tone, you're warm toned. If you can't tell, you might be neutral.
2. Compare your skin with white paper
Hold a white sheet of paper next to your neck or chest. Does your skin look more pinkish or yellowish compared to the white? If it's pinkish, you're cool toned. If it's yellowish, you're warm toned. If you still can't tell, you might be neutral.
3. Try on silver or gold jewelry
Hold a piece of silver and a piece of gold jewelry next to your neck. Which one makes your skin look more radiant and healthy? If it's silver, you're cool toned. If it's gold, you're warm toned. If you can't tell, you might be neutral.
Putting this new knowledge to use
Once you know your undertone, you can choose colors that will flatter your skin. If you're cool toned, cool blues and pastels will look great on you, while golden tones may not. If you're warm toned, earthy tones and golden colors will make you glow. And if you're neutral toned, lucky you! You can wear any color you like.
I hope this quick guide to discovering your skin undertone and choosing colors that make you look your best was helpful and informative.
