Have you ever wondered why you have a shade of pink blush but if you turn to another pink shade, your skin looks muddy or flat? How about trying various red lipstick shades? The red tomato looks fantastic, but if you try the hue that’s more orange, you don’t look as good. It will be a little easier to make the right choice of makeup for skin tone if you have more details about your coloring!
A key factor in determining what makeup shades work best is to decide if it is cool or warm. You may have previously learned or read about these words, but do you really know the skin tone? Do you know how to learn? When you decide whether you are cool or warm, you can choose the best colors to flatter you! Read the following details and you should be in a position to easily decide your own coloring.
Skin tones are undoubtedly available in a wide range of magnificent colors, but almost all of us fall into one of these categories: yellow, olive, dark, (Latin or Asian), rosy, tan or fair. A very easy and basic way to assess your skin tone is by placing a white paper in the mirror next to your face. What’s your primary color?
Another easy way to do that is to try a glossy white shirt and then try a blank or creamy shirt. What looks better at you? You have a “cool” tone for your skin if you look better in the bright white top. If the top of the cream looks more flattering, then your skin is “hot.” You probably already know whether you look better in white or white and keep the one or the other obvious, since you don’t think it flatters you.
You may also assess your skin tone by looking better in silver or gold jewelry. Silver is better in a cold face, while the warm skin tones are best in gold. Again, you’re probably already attracted to either silver or gold, because your skin looks better.
Now that you know which category of skin tone you are in, you can choose color shades which flatter your taint!
