How To Know Your Skin Undertone

This is an important step in knowing what shade you have to choose in buying your best foundation for acne-prone skin. 

Undertone is the natural color of your skin from the underneath surface that affects your complexion. 

There are three different types of undertones: Warm, Cool, and Neutral


Warm undertone is determined by yellow, peachy, and golden shades. If you easily get tanned and won’t burn, then you have a warm undertone. And if your veins look greenish and you look good in gold-toned pieces of jewelry then you probably belong in this undertone. 


A cool undertone burns easily when tanning. Plus, your veins look bluish or purple. If you look good in silver jewelry and have a true-white look in neutral-colored clothing, then you belong to this undertone which has bluish and pink shades. 


A neutral undertone comes in between warm and cool. If your skin looks gray and your veins belong to the combination of purple, blue, and green, then you have a neutral undertone.
