Look Amazing
Start by finding your skin tone.

 

Thirty Second Test

Cool Skin: People with cool tones usually have blue, green, or grey eyes with blond, black, or brown hair.
Warm Skin: Those with warm skin tones often have brown, black, or hazel eyes with black, brown, blond, red, or strawberry blond hair.

Two Minute Test

For best results do this in natural lighting (near a window) or outside in the shade.
Look at the veins on the underside of your forearm and wrist.

Warm Skin: the veins appear greenish than you have yellow undertones. This means your skin tone is warm.

Cool Skin: If the veins appear blue, then you have blue undertones. This means your skin tone is cool.

Five Minute Test

For this test you will need a mirror and a sheet of white paper. Remove your make up before you begin.

Warm Skin: If your face looks yellow, this means your skin tone is warm.
Cool Skin: If your face looks blue, this means your skin tone is cool.

Another Test

Put on several pieces of gold and silver jewelry. Observe the effect that gold and silver jewelry have on the way your skin looks.
Warm Skin: If you look better in gold then you have a warm skin tone.

Cool Skin: If you look better in silver jewelry you have a cool skin tone.

Look good either way?

Some people look good either way. (Lucky you!) Then you are a neutral.
