How to choose Warm makeup
If you have a Warm skin tone, you need Warm makeup.
Have you been determined SPRING or AUTUMN? Or perhaps you belong to the WARM Color Family? In all cases, you will have a Warm or golden undertone to your skin.
You might be fair or have much stronger coloring but your look is golden and the yellow undertone, although not always immediately apparent, is certainly there.
Choose makeup shades to flatter your skin tone and you'll always look your best.

How to choose Warm makeup to flatter
It's easy to choose Warm makeup colors just follow the colors from the color palettes - they are all influenced by yellow and therefore have a warm/golden undertone. Choose your favorites whether you are fair like the lovely Amy Adams (below left) or have stronger coloring like Jennifer Lopez whose skin is deep and rich.
I've put lighter colors with Amy and stronger colors with Jennifer, but the choice is yours.
Ready to complement your skin
When you choose makeup colors with the same Warm undertone as your own, they will complement your warm and golden skin.
- FOUNDATION: Look for a foundation with a yellow/warm undertone to complement your skin. Match it as closely as possible on the jaw line. Avoid a 'flat' beige which will flatten your coloring.
- LIPSTICK: Natural peach or copper, shiny bronze or terracotta, rustic or natural
earthy tones; deeper skins can enjoy a deep rusty red. Your pinks are peachy,
always avoid harsh blue toned pink and burgundy.
- EYES: Natural
tones of taupe, beige or warm brown for shaping and creamy highlighter for the
lid. Choose beautiful dusky shades from the colors below for added color - subtle teal, olive, sage and warm purple.
- BLUSH: Choose
blusher with a peach or brown undertone. Stronger skintones can choose deep terracotta and

What a difference the right makeup makes...
When we reach middle age, skin pigment
begins to fade a little and it's even more important to choose
the best colors for your complexion so that your color isn't completely
Warm skins will always look their best when
wearing a foundation that complements their golden warm undertone - neutral bordering on a yellow undertone.
