Warm or Cool? FAST TRACK to Color
Are you confident when you're looking for colors to suit you?
Identifying a WARM or COOL undertone will give you a FAST TRACK to COLOR!
Undertone is the layer under your skin which influences the overall look of your natural coloring. Pale in the Winter? Tanned in the Summer? Dont worry, your undertone always stays the same.
Strangely enough, the undertone of your skin is usually influenced by either YELLOW or BLUE. That is:
YELLOW is WARM and BLUE is COOL
This is entirely different to your complexion which is the color of your skin and can be Light, Medium or Dark.
Of course some of us will not have a easily identifiable undertone because we're all different. Undertones will be of different intensities, some delicate, some stronger. Some people will even have a NEUTRAL undertone which means that undertone is not the most important factor of their coloring. Sometimes you can wear both Warm and Cool colors as long as they are not too extreme!
But for most people identifying your undertone will help you to choose clothes, even hair and makeup shades, to complement your natural coloring.
