Suzanne, via email, asks:
‘I am having trouble buying makeup as I can’t figure whether or not I am a warm or cool skinned person. I have medium brown hair with red and gold undertones. I am very fair but I do not have rosy cheeks and I have green eyes. What category do I fit in?’
From what you’ve told me, you are a warm, like the gorgeous Kate Walsh from Grey’s Anatomy. I’m so envious of you!
Here is a guide though to use when determining what tone you are.
Eye Colour? Blue, grey, green
Hair Colour? Blonde, brown or black
Skin Tone? Blue and pink undertones
How can I tell? Clench your fist and look at the veins on the underside of your wrist. If the veins are have a blue-ish tinge, then you are probably a cool person.
Eye Colour? Brown, hazel, green
Hair Colour? Brown, black, auburn, red, blonde, strawberry blonde
Skin Tone? Yellow / orange or olive undertones
How can I tell? Clench your fist again. If the veins on the underside of your wrist look green, then you are probably a warm person.
Hope this helps, Suzanne!
