Determine Your Skin Tone

The first step in finding the colors that look best on you is to find out your skin tone. Your skin tone is determined by the undertones of your skin. After you know the undertone, you will then know whether your skin tone is warm or cool. Then you can match the colors you use to your skin tone for the most complimentary look for you!

Try the following tests to find out which undertones your skin has. Be sure to do them in natural lighting, near a window is best:

  • Turn your arm over and look at the veins on your forearm and wrist. If the veins appear more green than you have yellow undertones. This means your skin tone is warm. If the veins appear more blue then you have blue undertones. This means your skin tone is cool.

  • For this test you will need a mirror and a sheet of white paper. Be sure to remove your make up! Looking in the mirror, hold the sheet of white paper next to your face. If your face looks yellow, this means your skin tone is warm. If your face looks blue, this means your skin tone is cool.
