People with brown eyes usually have warm skin tones.
Determining whether you have warm or cool skin tones can be a little difficult. Generally, people who tan well, unlike those who burn, tend to have warm skin tones. You should also consider which colors look best on you. Most people will be able to tell your skin tone, however, by looking at the color of the veins just under the skin.
People with fair skin usually need a hair color that falls into the cool category.
A common misconception about skin tones is that fair-skinned individuals have cool undertones and dark-skinned individuals have warm undertones. In reality, individuals with fair or dark skin can have warm or cool skin tones. It is true that people with fair skin who burn easily tend to have cool skin tones. On the other hand, people with dark, well-tanned skin have warm skin tones.
Whether your skin tone is warm or cool plays an important role in choosing the best makeup colors.
Hair and eye color can help you recognize your skin tone. Generally, people with strawberry blonde or red hair have warm skin tones, while those with brown or brown eyes also have warm skin. People with blue, green, or gray eyes often have cool skin.
Another way to know is by paying attention to how colors affect your skin. If you tend to look better in cooler colors like blue, you likely have a cool skin tone. On the other hand, if you tend to look better in warmer colors like orange, you likely have a warm skin tone.
Your jewelry can also help you determine if you have warm or cool skin tones. Silver jewelry usually looks best on people with cool skin tones. Gold jewelry, however, is best suited for individuals with warm skin tones.
People with green eyes usually have cool skin tones.
When determining skin tone, keep in mind that these rules are just generalizations. Some people with cool skin tones might look good wearing orange clothing, for example, while some individuals with warm skin tones might look good wearing silver jewelry. An easier way to determine your skin tone is by looking at your veins.
You should be able to easily see the veins where they are close to the surface of the skin and where the skin is thin; the inside of the wrist or elbow is usually best for this. Individuals with cool skin tones often notice that their veins appear blue. On the other hand, if you have a warm skin tone, you may notice that your veins appear green.
