What colours suit your skin tone? A go-to guide!

what colours suit your skin tone

It can often be hard to figure out what colours suit your skin tone, because often the hardest part is figuring out what undertones your skin has! Instead of separating it into too many different categories, we’ve focused on just three, which every single person falls under: warm, cool or neutral. Figuring out what undertones your skin has is as simple as going into natural light and looking at the inside of your wrist. Those with a warm skin tone have undertones of green or yellow, olive skin also fall under ‘warm’. Blue, pink or red undertones are classified as cool, and if you really can’t figure it out, chances are you’re neutral. Once you’ve determined your skin tone, finding what colours suit your skin tone is as simple as reading below. Please do remember, this is purely a guide, if you absolutely LOVE a particular colour and even if it’s not listed as a ‘go-to’ for you, just wear it anyway! If it makes you feel happy and confident, then it’s definitely the best shade for you.
