How to Determine Your Skin Tone
Luckily there are a couple tricks to figuring out what your skin tone is.
There are three categories of undertones that affect your skin tone:
When you look at the veins on your wrist do they appear more blue or green? If you’re seeing a green tint, it’s because the melanin in your skin has a more distinct yellow tone to it, creating a “warm” appearance. If your veins appear blue and everyone can see in your face when you’re blushing, most likely you have cool undertones. With cool undertones, you’re more susceptible to getting sunburned, which means you have less melanin, placing you in the category of fair skin. Which leads us to the next test.
The sunshine test.
Are you the friend who can stand outside for 5 minutes and come back inside looking like you’ve spent a week on a tropical vacation? If that’s the case, chances are you have yellow to olive tone skin, also classified in the “warm” category of skin tones. If you’re the friend who gets sunburned, more than likely you’re in the “cool” category.
Gold or silver?
The jewelry test is one other option to determine your skins dominant undertone. Silver is considered a metal that pairs well and highlights cool undertones, while gold compliments those with warmer undertones. Even if you haven’t noticed it until now – you probably have more gold jewelry or silver because you naturally pick what looks best on you.
