Let’s face it, your skin tone is the basics of your beauty. Skin tone should be considered in hair color, make up and even your wardrobe. Its often confusing to understand all the rules for warm tones vs cool tones. Beauty editor did a insightful interview with Hair stylist Tony Chaar on his views of warm vs cool tone
Tony Charr has a few tests you can try. If the veins on the inside of your wrists appear blue, then you are cool-toned, and if they appear greenish, you are warm-toned. Another one is if you put a white T-shirt next to your face and you appear blue, you are cool; if you are yellow, you are warm.
Also with jewellery, if silver makes your face brighter, you are cool-toned. If gold makes you look healthy and glowing, then you are warm-toned. If you’re neutral—in between warm and cool—then both silver and gold will look good.
Skin tone can change with the seasons. Sometimes in the winter, when you don’t see the sun so much, people are more cool or neutral. In the summer, skin becomes warmer. If you tan well, you’re warm.
Play around with a colored T-shirt around you face—see how white makes you look, how black makes you look, how brown makes you look. This is the key to being playful with color.
People with deep skin tones usually have dark brown eyes. Your skin looks healthiest in brightly hued clothing, like royal purple or green. The darker your skin tone is, the easier you can pull off more intense colors on your lips
Warm skin tones usually accompanied by green, hazel, amber, or warm brown eyes. Your skin looks healthiest in off-white or beige shirts. Coral, terracotta red, and chocolate brown lipsticks are more flattering than pinks or blue-based reds.
People with cool skin tones usually have eyes that are blue, gray, greenish-blue with gray flecks, or a deep brown that borders on black. Your skin looks healthiest in pure white shirts. Pink or blue-based red lipsticks are more flattering than corals, terracotta reds, and chocolate browns.
