- Identify the tone and undertone of your skin.
There are 3 skin tones: warm, cold and neutral, although in many situations the characteristics can be mixed. Skins with warm tones have golden, yellow and / or orange undertones and cold tones have blue, red and pink undertones.
There are some simple tests to help you recognize your skin tone. Although not 100% accurate, they can serve as a guide to qualify you in one of the above categories:
With natural light, take a look at the color of your veins on the inside of the wrist. If the color that predominate is greenish you probably have warm tones, if blue, you probably have cold tones.
Gold vs. Silver: If you have more gold jewelry, your skin tone is warm, and if silver favors you, your skin tone is probably cold.
Color Test: Stand in front of the mirror with fabrics, clothes or even pink and orange color paper. If in the natural light you settle better the pink color you are cold tone, if the orange you are warm. If you cannot decide it means you tend to be more neutral so you could use both perfectly.
Knowing your tone and undertones is easier to choose the correct base and corrector, most stores have this information. For example: «Light Skin with Rosy undertones» which means it is for light skin with pink undertones.
