Let's Talk Skin Tones vs. Undertones

While these two terms sound like they could be interchangeable, your skin tone and skin's undertone are two very different things.  Let's break this down:

Skin Tone: The color you see FIRST when you look in the mirror, i.e. Porcelain, Fair, Light, Medium, Tan, Dark (or somewhere in between).  As you'd imagine, skin tone can change due to factors like sun exposure (summer vs. winter), pregnancy, or prescription medications. 

Skin Undertone: The permanent, underlying color that your skin tone casts, i.e. Warm, Cool, or Neutral.

Determine Your Skin Undertone

  1. Vein Test: Turn over your forearm and look at your veins. If they have a green tinge to them, they likely run warm. If they have a bluish tinge to them, your tones probably run cool.
  2. Jewelry Test: Are you more into gold jewelry and all its yellowy warmth? Or are you a cool, crisp silver kind of person? If the answer is gold, you most likely have warm undertones. If it is silver, your skin is inclined to have cool undertones.
  3. White Cloth Test: Put a white cloth next to your bare face and observe what cast your skin takes on. Skin with warm undertones will appear yellowish, while skin with cool undertones will seem blueish or pinkish.
  4. The White vs. Cream Test: Grab two articles of clothing, one white and the other off-white. While wearing no makeup, decide which color complements your skin tone best. If it’s the pure-white shade, your undertones are warm. If the cream color suits you more, you have cool undertones. If both flatter you just the same, you’re neutral.
