WHAT'S THE BEST WAY TO DETERMINE THE CORRECT UNDERTONE FOR WOMEN OF COLOUR? HERE'S 4 EASY WAYS TO FIND OUT

London, UK

Always wondered what your undertone is? Knowing your undertone helps you  find out in which colours you look your best orwhat makeup to choose!

Are you intrigued? Keep reading!


Generally there are 4 methods to find out your personal undertone: fabrics test, veins test, ear test and jewellery test.

1) FABRICS TEST
In this case you`ll need a gold and a silver piece of fabric. All you have to do is put the fabrics next to your face. If the gold fabric makes you more radiant, probably you are warm and your undertone is yellow; if it`s not, you are cool and your undertone is pink!

2) VEINS TEST

Here you`ll need to be outside with daylight and look at the inside of your forearms. If your veins appear more green,  you`re warm and with yellow undertone; if your veins are blue you are cool and with a pinkish undertone!

3) EAR TEST
Basicly is  the same as the one above, but for this method you will need a friend to help you or, if you can`t find anyone around, use a camera. All you have to do is tell your friend to check  the veins behind you ear: if green, you`re warm and with yellow undertone; if  blue, you`re cool and with pink undertone.

4) JEWELLERY TEST
This last method is really quick and simple. Which jewellery makes you glow? The gold one or the silver one? If it`s the first one you`re warm and with yellow under tone; if the answer is the second one you`re cool with pink undertone.

After discovered if you`re warm or cool, now you can choose make up, clothes and jewellery that gonna make you gorgeous! If you are warm (like me) try use colours such as yellow,gold, peach, orange, olive green, cream, ivory, bronze and brown. Instead, if you`re cool try  colours like white, platinum or silver, pink or rose, black and blue-purples. If you look great in gold AND silver, means that you`re neutral and you can rock with everything. Lucky you!

After reading this easy tests, what is your undertone?
