2. Identify Your Undertone.
Your undertone will be an important factor in deciding which colour you’re going to wear. There are mainly two skin undertones: cool undertones and warm undertones. If you’re not sure, don’t worry. Just grab a piece of white cloth. Place it near your face. If your skin seems brighter than the white cloth, then you have a cool undertone. Otherwise, you have warm skin tone. If the veins on your wrist are bluish in colour, then you have cool undertones otherwise, you have a warm undertone.
