Hey Guys,
So today I thought I would share some information on how to find your undertone. A lot of people don't know what an undertone is or how to find it. Your Undertone is very important in makeup, clothes and in everyday life.

What is an undertone?
An undertone is a tone in your skin, you could have a warm undertone, cool undertone or neutral.

Warm Undertone
If you have a warm undertone you tend to have a more yellow or golden base to their skin. They tend to like and suit more orange golden tones.

Cool Undertone
If you have a cool undertone you tend to have more of a pink base to your skin. You tend to suit more pinks and blues and some cool tone reds.

Neutral Undertone
If you have a more neutral undertone it means you have a mixture of both warm and cool. However most people normally have more cool or warm.

How to find your Undertone
There are a few ways in which you can do this, here are a few of my favourites!
1. Look at your wrist veins if they are:
a) Blue- you are more cool toned
b)Green- you are more warm toned
If they look a bit of both you might be Neutral

2. Get a piece of silver and gold jewellery and compare them against your neck and face. 
If Silver makes you look brighter, more awake and brings out your features then you are more cool toned.
If Gold makes you look more alive then you are more Warm toned

3.Make sure you are wearing no makeup, then get a plain piece of paper and compare to your face. Make sure you don't compare it to your neck or hands as they can be different!
If your face looks more pink compared to the paper then you are more   cool toned.
If your face looks more yellow or golden compared to the paper then you are more warm toned.

4.If you look in your wardrobe or even makeup collection and you see  either.
a)More fuchsia pink colours, Deeper blues, navys,purples, colours that have a more Cool tone to them

b)More orange and yellow colours which again have a more Warm tone to them

5.Finally get a few pieces of different clothes or fabric. For example
a) Pink b)peach
a) White b)cream 
a) Black b)brown 
If you think the A colours suit you more and bring out your key features then you are Cool toned.
If you think the B colours suit you more and don't bring out things like dark circles then you are Warm toned.
