How To Find Your Undertone

It is widely accepted that there are three skin undertones: cool, warm, and neutral. 

Different from your skin tone, the shade of your skin, undertones are the subtle qualities or hues within your skin tone that impact how certain colors look on you. Someone with a fair skin tone can have warm undertones just the same as someone with a deep complexion can have cool undertones. Your skin tone does not affect what color undertone you have. 

Cool undertones lean more pink and blue in fair complexions and can appear red or purple in medium to deep skin.

Warm undertones can range from yellow to peach to golden, depending on your skin tone.

Neutral undertones often have a mixture of both warm and cool undertones. 


Here are a few ways to determine what color undertone you have:

Look at the color of your veins. Look at the veins on the inside of your wrist. Do they appear more purple or blue-ish? This is an indication you have a cool undertone. If they look more green to you, you might have a warm undertone. If you see a mix of both blue and green, you probably have a neutral undertone. Unfortunately, this method doesn’t work for everyone. If you have a deeper skin tone that makes it hard for you to determine the color of your veins, try asking yourself this question…

What color jewelry do you prefer? Do you wear more gold or silver jewelry? If silver sparkles on your skin, you probably have a cool undertone, but if you think you look better in gold, then you may have a warm undertone. Or maybe you’re someone who can wear both! Then you definitely have a neutral undertone.


Still not sure whether you have a warm vs cool skin tone

Try on a plain white t-shirt. Do you look more rosy in white, or do you see more yellow? Those who look pink and rosy likely have a cool undertone, while those that appear more yellow and golden probably lean to a warm undertone.
