This is a continuation of my last post on how to test your skin undertone. By now we are clear on what our skin undertone is. The next step to know what color shade suits our undertone.
A little flashback of the last post:
3 types of undertone found.
- Warm undertone
- Cool undertone
- Neutral /Medium undertone
I will be covering shades for warm and cool undertone in this post. For girls with neutral undertone, you are lucky babes!! You can experiment with any color of your choice
It’s extremely important we pick the right colors that suit us to extenuate our features. Why is it that some shade of a color washes us out completely, but the same color in a different shade looks extremely flattering?? It the undertone that matters.
Notice how badly the below ladies have goofed up with their lip colors?
It doesn’t suit their skin undertone at all. Angelina Jolie is blue undertone. Warm orangey red lippie looks stark on her. J Lo’s attempt at nude lipstick is bad. Gauri Khan – No comments!! The lesser known lady with dark skin color, is a clear yellow tone and this light purple blue undertone lippie washes her out completely.
Eyes gone wrong.
Halley Barry warm undertone so silver is a no-no for her. What’s with Bipasha’s wanna be Chinese attempt? The other two ladies are warm undertone too but grey and pale blue washes them out.
Blush isn’t well!
Aishwarya with dark magenta blush, no-no. Kangana, bronze is not for you baby. My friend from Africa has forgotten she has a yellow undertone and is wearing a cool undertone blush. Celina, why amma?? Why that dark red blush?
Here is a list below that will help you chose the shade that suits you best. These are just recommendation. Your mirror knows it best!!!
