What on earth am I ?!

26 Oct

For all of you wondering, ‘What on earth am I? Cool, olive, beige, warm? What does any of this mean anyway?!’ If the look on your face matches that of the model in the picture…keep reading…

I came across this great makeup site (Alima Pure) that gives the perfect little write up on how to figure out the answer to the confusing question… “What undertone am I?”

Look at the little patch of skin in front of your ear lobe. It’s back behind your rosy cheeks. Compare it to the descriptions below.

COOL: Your skin tends to be pinkish, and you burn rather than tan in the sun. If your skin is a bit deeper, your tan tends to be reddish rather than brown.

NEUTRAL: Your tone is peachy, without obvious yellow or pink tones. You either burn immediately or burn and then tan slightly.

BEIGE: Your coloring is beige-peach with a touch of yellow, and you may tan a bit.

WARM: You have noticeable peach-to-yellow undertones and tend to tan easily. If you are very pale, you may still burn a bit at first. Your tan tends to be warm golden brown.

GOLDEN: You have a rich yellow skin tone, without a hint of pink or beige. You tend to tan easily, unless you are very pale.

OLIVE: Your skin tone is beige without a hint of pink or yellow (like café au lait). You probably tan easily, even if you are pale. (Our Olive shades tend to run a little deeper than our other foundation lines.)

Double-check by looking at your inner wrist. Cool skin tones will have blue-looking veins. Warm, Beige and Golden skin tones will have greenish veins. Neutral and Olive skin tones can have either.
