If you don't know your Color Family just identify whether you have a Warm or Cool skin.
It's the most important factor in being able to choose the right makeup colors, hair shades and even the clothes that you wear.
You apply makeup to look more attractive so obviously it's better if you choose the most flattering shades. In fact it's even more important than the colors of your clothes because your face is where everone looks first.
Most people should be able to identify their natural coloring from the questions below.
some people still aren't really aware whether they have warm or cool skin as they often haven't been given a clear explanation about their color direction.
But wearing makeup and clothes that complements your skin tone will make you look healthier and more attractive so make a point of knowing which you are.

and these colors will suit you best...
WARM HAIR will always have a red influence - golden blonde, light titian red, auburn or even red toned chestnut. It could even be dark but with is a slight red undertone.
COOL HAIR always has an ash tone - fair to light brown as a child, perhaps even white blonde, deepening to mid ash brown through to deep brunette. There may occasionally be a slight red tone (few people are 100% cool) but with a Cool skin tone it doesn't particularly suit you.
