- Fair skin tone: For your skin tone that matches that of snow white, anything too bright can tend to be blown out of proportion. Coral, peach and pink shades are likely to be the colors you can rely on.
- Medium skin tone: You have a light tan and a slightly brown skin tone, and therefore honey, golden-brown, and bronze shades can work like magic on your skin.
- Light or Olive skin tone: You have a skin tone that glows in the sun, and the perfect shades to enhance your beauty are light and rosy pink or a warm peach blush, rosy pink coupled with just a li’l shimmer on your cheekbones.
- Dark brown skin tone: Well, your rich skin tone can pull off almost any and every bright color. From bright red lips to a cranberry-colored or a bright orange blush, you can pull off everything like a pro!
2) Recognize your undertones:
Look closely into your wrist and try to identify the color of your veins by placing a golden or a silver colored fabric next to it.
If your veins appear blue next to the silver, you have a cool undertone; if it’s yellow, green or brownish in comparison to the golden fabric, you have a warm tone; and if it appears both blue and green, you are neutral toned which means you can wear both the cool and warm undertones.
3) Pick your lipstick colours based on your skin tone.
- Dark or medium skin tone: Apply dark or bold colors like bright red, pink or purple. However, if you are wearing a dark color eye shadow already, keep it low on your lips and apply nude or light pink colored lipstick.
- Olive or fair skin tone: Go easy and apply lighter shades like baby pink, light purple or nude.
4) Buy your foundation depending on your skin tone and undertone!
It is very important to buy the right colored foundation that matches both your skin tone and undertone! Use an online tool for it or simply consult a beauty expert in this regard.
If you have a warm undertone and a fair skin tone, porcelain or light ivory are the perfect shades for you. A brown or beige shade is ideal for the ones with a medium skin tone and a cool undertone.
In case you are clueless, just remember to buy a foundation that is slightly darker than your skin tone, or else you might just end up looking chalky.
Always remember to test your foundation before you actually buy it!
