Asian skin and Undertones (warm/cool, clear/soft, deep/light)

Asian skin warm or cool

Asian skin warm or cool


Do Asians count as the deep undertone sides or as the light undertone sides? Some of us tend to have more sun-kissed skin while others have more pale skin but all of us have dark hair and dark eyes. I simply can't tell, please help me.


I am so sorry this question hasn't been answered before.

When we talk about undertone we are looking to determine whether your skin tone is Warm or Cool.

What I think you are referring to is that some Asian skins will be fair while others have a stronger skin tone and yet are likely to have deep hair and eyes. How does this translate into different coloring?

It is often assumed that all Asian skin is Warm because there is often surface yellow. However, there can be a huge variance of skin tone and Asian skin can be warm, cool or neutral.

Eye color can vary and, as in every ethnicity, different skin tones will react differently to Warm or Cool shades, Bright or Muted and even Light and Deep.

The lady above had always felt she was putting on a sort of mask with warm makeup until she discovered that her skin tone was Cool. She now feels more like herself.

Draping with the different undertones via face-to-face Color Analysis is the best way to establish this or, as I offer with Online Color Analysis lots of images to show you how this works.

I hope this has answered your question.

kind regards
