DISCOVERING YOUR UNDERTONE


1. Looking at your forearms under natural light or outdoors. Looking at the vein colour, what colour do you see?
- If blue, then you’re cool.
- If green, then you’re warm.

2. Coloured jewelry can also play a part in what your undertone may be.
- If you tend to gravitate towards silver jewelry, you are cool.
- If you look better in gold jewelry, then you’re warm.

3. Lastly, depending if you burn or not under the sun is a good indicator, too!
- You don’t get tanned – then you’re cool 
- You can get tanned – then you’re warm.
