What is the Skin's Undertone?

The skin's undertone is the hue or natural color underneath the skin. It can be described as cool, warm, or neutral. All skin colors have an undertone that stays the same throughout your life.

Why Should You Know Your Skin's Undertone

When you know your skin's undertone, you can choose the best lip color, hair color, color palettes and clothing that best suits you. Your skin tone may change due to external factors such as the weather conditions, but your skin's undertone never changes.


What are the 3 Types of Undertones?

  • Warm Undertone - yellow, peach or golden skin undertones

  • Cool Undertone - reddish, pink or blue skin undertones

  • Neutral Undertone - a blend of warm and cool undertones


How to Find Your Skin's Undertone

  • Warm undertone if your veins look greenish.

  • Cool undertone if your veins look bluish or purplish.
