Hello, My makeup geeks!

How well is your makeup-stash growing? Venturing into the field of makeup as a beginner, no matter how addictive and exciting it may look like, can also get a tad bit intriguing. Especially, when it comes to choosing colors to suit your skin tone!

Colored makeup can make your look from drab to fab just with a swipe of a gorgeous lip color. But the main problem is, which color to choose, which will subtly amp up your beauty without overwhelming your entire look? So, here is a quick guide for all the yellow skin tones, to keep your best lip forward. 😉

Which Sub-category of Yellow Skin Tone do I Fit In?

Now this is a hard question I am glad you have finally realized what skin type and undertones you possess, but the main question still remains unanswered! Yellow undertones in your skin clearly indicate that your skin is lurking on the warm side of the spectrum. But the inquisitiveness to know your correct skin tone does not end here! You are not just warm or cool and yellow or pink there’s a lot more to you than just warmth and coolness. 😉

What needs to be deciphered is the fact that whether you are a dark-warm toned person or a light-warm toned person! Look at the quick how-to below!

Dark-Warm undertones

Think of our dearest Anamika here! She has a gorgeous olive-brown Indian skin with very clear Yellow undertones! But what distinguishes her skin type is the skin’s tendency to change color to a darker hue when exposed to sun. Most skins with medium to olive-brown tones tend to have dark-warm and earthy warm undertones to them.

Light-Warm Undertones

Now, think of me (if you can!). I have fair-medium Indian skin with very visible yellow undertones but my skin color does not darken in the sun in fact it changes to a slight golden tinge! Here is the main difference between the two. Most very fair to fair and medium skin tones fit under this category.

Your fair-medium skin with golden-yellow undertones has a match made in heaven with sun-kissed nudes, dusty-pinks, sandy oranges and everything light and warm! Though pulling off dark and loud shades is not easy for your skin type on a regular basis you can always opt for rich and vibrant wine-berry shades as well as reds leaning towards brick-reds and deep oranges!
