We’re talking about your skin tone, of course! Whether warm or cool, knowing your skin tone is so important in choosing the right foundation, and determining which shades will suit you best!

Girls, roll up your sleeves! Turn over your forearm, and examine your veins. If your veins are green, then you are warm toned. Those with veins having a bluish tinge, are cool toned.

The Jewellery Test

What kind of accessories do you usually wear? Rather than looking at the accessories you love wearing, look at those which flatter you most! Gold jewellery suits warm tones, while silver complements cool tones.

The Sun Test

If you are still confused, go bask in the sun! Warm tones tan easily, while cool toned skin tends to burn.
