How to Find Your Skin Tone: Your Ultimate Guide to Perfect Makeup Matches

Hello, beautiful! One of the most crucial steps in creating a flawless makeup look is understanding your skin tone. Whether you have a pink undertone, yellow undertone, or a neutral complexion, knowing your skin tone can help you choose the right foundation, lipstick, and more. Today, we’re diving into the world of skin tones to help you find your perfect match and make the most of your makeup routine. Let’s get started!

What is Skin Tone?

Your skin tone is the natural colour of your skin and is typically categorised into three main types:

1. Cool: Skin with pink, red, or blue undertones.
2. Warm: Skin with yellow, golden, or peach undertones.
3. Neutral: Skin with a balance of both cool and warm undertones.

How to Determine Your Skin Tone

Finding your skin tone can be a bit tricky, but here are some simple methods to help you figure it out:

1. Check Your Veins: Look at the veins on the inside of your wrist. If they appear blue or purple, you likely have a cool undertone. If they look green, you have a warm undertone. If you see a mix of both, you probably have a neutral undertone.

2. The Jewellery Test: Think about whether you look better in silver or gold jewellery. If silver complements your skin more, you have cool undertones. If gold looks better, you have warm undertones. If both look good, you have neutral undertones.

3. White Paper Test: Hold a piece of white paper up to your face. If your skin looks rosy or pink next to the paper, you have cool undertones. If your skin appears yellow or golden, you have warm undertones. If you can’t quite tell, you might have neutral undertones.

Understanding Undertones

Now that you’ve determined your skin tone, let’s dive deeper into the specifics of undertones and how they influence your makeup choices.

Cool Undertones

- Characteristics: Pink, red, or blue hues in your skin. Often burn rather than tan in the sun.
- Foundation: Look for shades with names like “Fair” and “Beige.”
- Blush and Lipstick: Soft pinks, berry shades, and wines complement cool undertones beautifully.
- Eyeshadow: Cool tones like blues, purples, and grays will enhance your natural beauty.

Warm Undertones

- Characteristics: Yellow, golden, or peach hues in your skin. Tend to tan rather than burn.
- Foundation: Seek out shades with names like “Medium Sand” and “Medium Tan.”
- Blush and Lipstick: Warm tones like peach, coral, and bronze look stunning.
- Eyeshadow: Earthy tones like browns, golds, and greens will make your eyes pop.

Neutral Undertones

- Characteristics: A balance of both cool and warm hues. Can often wear both silver and gold jewellery.
- Foundation: Opt for shades labeled “Medium,” “Tan,” and “Deep Brown.”
- Blush and Lipstick: Versatile shades like mauve, nude, and peachy-pinks work well.
- Eyeshadow: You can experiment with both cool and warm shades to find what you love best.
