What underdone am I?

    I cannot seem to ever find a shade that works for me no matter what undertone description I try. Can anyone help me determine what undertone I am so I can get closer to finding a match?

Re: What underdone am I?

HI! Here are some good ways to tell.

Look at your wrist veins under natural light. 

- If your veins appear to be green, you probably have warm undertones.
- If they’re blue or purple, you probably have cool undertones.
- If they are a mix of both, you may have neutral undertones. 

Put on a piece of gold jewelry and a piece of silver jewelry.

- If gold looks more flattering, you’re probably warm. 
- If silver looks better, you’re probably cool.
- If both look equally good, you’re neutral. 

Put on a plain white t-shirt and go outside

- If your face looks yellow-ish or you know you’d look better in an off-white or beige color, you’re warm.
- If your skin looks rosy, you're cool. 
- If you look good in white and cream colors, you’re neutral.
