Fashion Magazine Style Panel Question this week is finding the best colours for your skin tone; many people have a hard time finding the perfect foundation to match their skin tone, am I cool or warm, do I have yellow or red undertones, that’s the million dollar question asked by so many ladies. There are simple test that can help you decide what your skin tone is; start by looking at your veins on the inside of your wrist, if you have blue-purple veins you’ll tend to have more of a cool skin tone, if you have blue-green veins you’re more on the warmer skin tone scale. Another great way to get an idea of what skin tone you are is by looking at gold and silver jewellery, if you look better in silver jewellery chances are you have cool undertones, if you look better in gold jewelry than you probably have a warmer undertone.
Since I have a cool skin tone, I look for colors with a blue base; vivid red and other clear colors such as hot pink, yellow and emerald green look extra flattering on me. I can also get away with wearing bold shades of black and pure white than someone with a warmer skin tone. I do tend to wear more silver jewellery and “jewel” tones clothing as it really makes my completion pop!
