I have only just discovered this easy technique of finding out what colour will suit you best, whether it is what you are wearing or what colour you wish to dye your hair. This is the simplest way of knowing what colours to wear.
Warm and Cool Undertones: What are they?
There are only two undertones, Warm and Cool. A person with a warm undertone is best suited to warmer colours like orange, dark red, yellows etc. A person with Cool undertones is suited to more cooler colours like light blues and pinks, silvers and black. It does not matter what colour your skin is but what colour your skin undertone is.
How to know what undertone your skin is.
The simplest way to tell what undertone your skin is, is to turn over and look under your arms between your wrist and elbow. If the veins are blue then you are Cool, if they are green you are warm. Simple!
