Tips and tricks to discover your tone

It is not easy to find the right shades for you. These tips will help you find the best colors for you.

  • Refer to Magazines

Full-length photos of celebs and models are featured in magazines and websites for fashion and celebs. Look for a celebrity with similar hair, skin and eye colours to you and see what colors they wear the most. What time do they look their best?

  • Which jewelry looks best on you?

Cool undertones are likely if silver or platinum metals suit you better. If you prefer rose-gold or gold, you are more on the warm-toned side.

  • Check Your Veins

Because your skin is most delicate, the inside of your wrist is the best place to check. Take a look at the veins. Your skin may have cool undertones if they appear more blue. If they appear greenish, it is likely that your skin has warm undertones. This is because you are seeing your veins through yellowish skin. (Blue + Yellow = Green!)

  • What happens when you catch the sun?

Cooler tones are those who turn pink from sun exposure. Your skin will be warmer if it turns golden brown.
