skin undertones

We’ve heard complaints about not being able to “carry off” red lipsticks, or pink blusher. The good news is, everyone can carry off almost every colour, it’s just about finding one that complements your skin tone. You see, the thing is colours come in different shades and tones – yes, even white.


Want to know if you’re a warm or cool undertone? Here are ways to find out:

Vein test: Go under natural light and look at the inside of your wrist. If your veins look more green, you have warm skin undertone, but if they look more blue, then it means you have a cool skin undertone.

Jewellery test: Those with warm skin undertone tend to look better in gold jewellery, whereas those with cool skin undertone will look better in silver.
