When choosing what to wear, many people don’t necessarily know which colors look better on them. And yet, you should know what you’re dealing with when it comes to your skin tone since an unflattering hue can make you look insipid. By the way, to determine which colors look best on you, you need to know which undertone you are cold, warm or neutral undertone.
1. COOL-TONED SKIN
How to determine if you have cool undertones?
Look at the color of your veins. If you can see your veins and your skin is light, your veins may be blue. People with blue or purplish-looking veins usually have cooler undertones.
Loot at your jewelry. Most people like wearing either silver or gold jewelry because of the way it looks against their skin. If you think silver, platinum, and rose gold look good on you and flatter your skin tone, you may have a cool undertone.
Look at your skin’s reaction to sun. Knowing how your skin reacts to the sun can help determine your undertone. If you have a cool undertone, you’re likely to sunburn easily and might need to apply sunscreen more often.
