Ladies, we are not the same. There are aspects that differentiate us from one another, and let’s face it, that in itself is beauty. I wouldn’t dare to want to look like someone else and neither should you. Although there are moments when we wish we had features we lack.
With that being said, it can be overwhelming narrowing down what tones work best for our skin, but in all honesty it can be pretty simple.
Please note, just because you love the hue, doesn’t mean it will work best for your skin tone. In fact, that hue can work against you. Making you appear withered and aged. Who wants that, right? In a time where every moment is documented with a picture, let me guide you with simple tricks, and tips to help you look your best.
Undertone Tips & Tricks
1. When in Doubt Look at Your Wrists:
Simply look at your wrists, what color do your veins appear?
Cool Tones: If your veins appear blue or purple, you are cool toned. Your skin naturally depicts pink, red & blue hues, and when you look at your skin in the sun it appears blue. Cool tones individuals look best in silver toned jewelry.
Neutral Tones: If your veins appear blue-green, you are neutral toned. Your skin naturally depicts neither pink, red, or blue hues. Nor does your skin naturally depict yellow, gold or peach hues. When you look at your skin in the sun it appears green. Both gold, and silver jewelry go well with your skin tone.
Warm Tones: If your veins appear olive or green, you are warm toned. Your skin naturally depicts yellow, gold or peach hues, and when you look at your skin in the sun it appears yellowish. Gold jewelry flatters your skin versus silver.
2. White Fabric Test:
This simple test is exactly what it sounds like. Make sure to pull you hair back, so you are looking at your face clearly without distractions. Place a white towel around your neck, and shoulders, before you do this please make sure your face bare, and clean. The white tone will reflect your true colors, for best results use ivory white.
3. How Does Your Skin React in the Sun?
Think back to previous experience. If you tan easily, yet rarely burn, you have warm undertones. If you burn easily, yet rarely tan, you have cool tones.
