Identify Your Skin’s Undertone
The basics are essential! Everyone’s skin tones have hints either of pink or of yellow. Pink is the cooler and yellow is the warmer. Knowing the undertones is enormously helpful in figuring out the lipstick shades that would look best on you.
A quicker way to identify the skin’s undertone is to observe the veins on the wrist. If they are a shade of blue, and you tend to wear blues, grays, and whites then you have pink undertones. If they are both green and blue, you are lucky to have a neutral skin tone that has both pink and yellow tones equally. Hence, you can wear any color. If your veins are greener, your skin’s undertone is yellow and you fall into the category of warm skin tone.
If you are still unsure, hold a piece of silver or gold jewelry and keep it near your face. Ignore the personal preference and observe which looks better with the skin. Pink, cooler tones go better with the silver ornaments and yellow, warms go better with the gold. Let’s know them better.
- Cool Undertones: If you have a red, pink, or bluish hue to the skin, by now you know that you are the cool tone. One sign is that your skin tends to burn before tanning. For this skin tone, lip colors with purple, blue undertones look the best. As a rule, when you go to pick a red shade, just steer away from the peachy and orangish hues. Go for the deep and bluish reds. They will suit you perfectly. Shades that are too light will give you a dull look so be careful while choosing them.
- Neutral Undertones: People with the neutral undertones are actually the blessed and the privileged ones! A wide spectrum of hues easily complement your skin and you can experiment with a variety of beautiful shades. You are in a win-win situation and you can just go for any color that you like.
- Warm Undertones: Warm undertones are a yellow, olive, or golden hue to the skin. If your skin gets tan or bronze easily then you have the warm undertones. For this skin tone, choose lip colors in warm shades. They will look stunning on you. Orange or red colors would look great.
