Back in the good old days, I would buy myself a new lipstick as an inexpensive celebratory treat! A simple change of lipstick can change your look AND your mood! But if you’re like me, you have colors in your beauty bag that just don’t work. That’s most likely because the lipstick color does’t complement your skin tone.
To begin with, we should get down to finding out wether you have a cool or warm skin tone. Simply look at the veins on the inside of your wrist. If they look blue to you, you are cool skin tone and if they look green or yellow to you, you have warm skin tone. If they are blue AND green than you are a neutral.
Cool skin tones will look best with a blue undertone. A good example is the YSL color or the left which has a blue undertone while the other three have a more orange hue and better suited for warmer skin tones. I have warm skin tone. That YSL shade was a purchase gone wrong in my case!
This simple formula will work for choosing colors for your outfits as well.
Cool skin tones look great in color with cool undertones like blues and lavenders and warm skin tones look healthy and radiant in warmer undertones.
If you can’t decided there are another ways to determine your tone. Does silver (cool) or gold (warm) look best on you? When you put a white sheet of paper next to your skin in clear daylight, does your skin look blue or yellow?
If you don’t see a difference you might be one of the fortunate one’s with a neutral tone. Lucky you! You can wear any color and look great!
Whatever you chose remember to have fun! If you are one of the adventurous ones who wants to try this seasons NEON trends report back! I’m dying to incorporate this summer beauty trend somehow!
