Have you ever tried on a shade of lipstick that makes your skin tones, eyes, and face come alive, and other in the same shade that makes you look tired?
Obviously there is a reason for that and it is related to the undertones of your skin color and complexion.
In terms of art, and make up is an art, we distinguish between cool and warm colors so we should know what are our undertones and surface tone.
Distinguishing between surface tone and the undertones.
Surface tone is the color you describe your skin. Examples of this are medium, tan, dark, ivory, light, etc.
Skin undertone is the color underneath the surface which can be: cool based on pink, red or bluish undertones, warm with the prevalence of yellow and golden undertones and neutral which combines warm and cool undertones.
How do I know what is my type of skin undertone?
There are three ways.
1st method based on jewelry: Just consider if you look better in silver or gold jewelry. This has nothing to do with the type of jewelry you prefer, it is connected which the one hat makes you look glowing, luminous and joyful.Women with warm undertones look better in gold whether women with cool undertones look great when they wear platinum and silver metals.
2nd method known as the neutral test
That is based on the neutral shades that enhance your complexion. Does your skin and eyes look better in black and white or off-whittes and tan shades? If you look gorgeous in cream and tan shades for sure you have warm undertones while if you look better in black and white you belong to the cool category.
3rd method look at your veins
Look at the veins on the inside of your wrist. Are they blue or greenish? If blue shades predominate, you have cool undertones. In case your veins look greenish you have warm undertones. Obviously, veins are not green but they look greenish because you see them through a yellow tone skin (yellow + blue = green).
What is your skin undertone? Have you ever tried these methods?
Have a nice day and stayed blessed.
