How to Find Your Skin’s Undertone
Knowing your undertone is very important for purchasing the right shades of makeup!
There are three undertones that beauty products use to help you pick shades that best match your skin: cool, warm, and neutral.
Here are some easy at-home tricks to determine your skin’s undertone, demonstrated by me (neutral) and my sister (warm).

Color of Veins

Those with veins that appear olive green have warm undertones, and those with veins that appear more blue have cool or neutral undertones
If you tan easily, you have a warm undertone. If you burn easily, you may have a cool undertone. If you burn then tan, you have a neutral undertone
