How do I know my skin tone and undertone? In natural light, check the appearance of your veins beneath your skin. If your veins appear blue or purple, you have a cool skin tone. If your veins look green or a greenish blue, you have a warm skin tone. If you can’t tell whether or not your veins are green or blue, you probably have a neutral skin tone.
How do I know if I have a pink or yellow undertone? Hold up a white paper in the mirror.
If your skin looks pinkish against the paper, you probably have cooler undertones; if your skin looks yellow against the paper, you’re probably a warm tone.
