March Into Spring : Going "Skin Deep " , Finding Your Undertones!

Monday, March 25, 2013
Hi Guys :-) Top of the Morning to ya! I'm just gonna jump into it . Today it's all about undertones and knowing the type of undertone you have.


What is Undertone?

Skin undertones are the underlying tint to the skin that influence whether a person has a “warm” ,“cool” or "neutral" complexion. - Wise Geek

There are 3 types of Undertones : Warm , Cool and Neutral . You can't know a person's undertone just by looking.  There has been assumptions that once a person has a dark skin tone , then they would naturally have a "warm" undertone. This is not the case; below are just some quick tips to know your undertone.

Cool


If you look into the mirror and notice that your "bare face" ( without Make -up) has a Pinkish look to it, then you would have a cool undertone. This might be true for most people who are considered "fair skinned" or those who have a really really dark skin tone . People like model "Alex Wek" who has a Blackish Blue Skin Tone.



Warm

If you have a golden , apricot .. yellowish looking skin without make-up , you are said to have a warm undertone. These people are said to have a bright "Sunny" welcoming look and will cast a natural golden look in natural light . Think J.Lo! One way you can tell if you truly have  warm undertone is by looking at the colour of your veins ... they will have  noticeable "greenish" colour.



Neutral

A Neutral Undertone is one in which you have a mixture of both warm and cool . In essence , you look in the mirror and notice that it's neither warm nor cool. This is mainly common in women who have an "olive skin tone".



A good way to tell what skin tone you are is to do the following :




Take a piece of jewellery and wear it. A gold jewellery will make a warm toned person look healthy and glowy , while a cool skin tone person will look sallow and sickly . If you have a cool skin tone , then silver will work best for you :-)

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or
    copyright infringement? My website has a lot of exclusive content I've either written myself or
    outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over
    the web without my permission. Do you know any methods to help prevent
    content from being ripped off? I'd truly appreciate it.
