What Are Your Colors
by: Janice Wee
How do you know what colors suit your skin type.
Your skin could have warm undertones or cool undertones. That would determine whether you look better in warm colors or cool colors.
Warm skin tones have a yellowish undertone, while cool skin tones have a blue undertone.
To tell whether you are warm or cool, hold a piece of plain, pure white paper under your hand. Look carefully at your skin in comparison. If you see a yellowish cast, then you have warm skin tones. If you see a bluish cast, then you have cool skin tone.s
If that does not work, then try this.
Get a peach scarve and a blue scarve. Wear a white t-shirt. Hold the peach scarve against your face and look at yourself carefully in the mirror. Hold the blue scarve against your face and look at yourself in the mirror. Do you look better with the peach scarve or the blue scarve? If the peach scarve makes you look better, then you have warm skin tones. If you look better in blue, then you have cool skin tone.
If you have warm skin tones, then you look good in earth tones, peach and gold. If you have cool skin tones, then you look great in black, blue and anything that has a bluish tinge like bluish pink and bluish red.
