Are You Cool-Toned Or Warm-Toned? How To Find Your Perfect Foundation Shade

Finding the most suitable foundation shade for your skin tone could be challenging especially for makeup beginners. But one of the easiest and the first thing you should do is to find out your skin’s undertone which is basically the underlying colour that your skin has after determining your skin tone.

So here are some tips to help you determine whether your skin undertone is warm, cool or neutral!

  • Check under your wrists : The colour of your veins can act as a indicator on your skin undertone. Warm undertoned skin will have green/olive coloured veins, cool undertoned skin will have blue/purple coloured veins, while neutral undertoned skin will have both green/blue veins.
  • Gold or Silver Jewellery : Gold accessories will look amazing on warm undertoned skin and silver accessories will flatter cool undertoned skin. Neutral skin undertones can rock both gold and silver jewellery.

After trying those 2 methods, you will know what skin undertone you have which makes it easier for you to find the right foundation shade.
