Clean and Non-Toxic Makeup Undertone Secrets

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Understanding your skin’s undertone is key to finding the right makeup and choosing the best color palettes for your skin tone. Using the wrong or toxic foundation, concealer or bronzer can give you an unsightly look or turn you into an orange clown if you aren’t careful. This is why it is so critical to use non-toxic makeup.

While it may be a challenge to determine the correct undertone that matches your nuanced complexion, getting it right guarantees the most seamless and natural-looking face makeup, eye makeup, and lip color application.

Here is what you need to know to figure out exactly what tone your skin gives off for flawless makeup.

Understand Your Undertone

An undertone is the underlying shade of your skin. These colors can either be warm, cool, olive and neutral. Warm undertones are more yellow, peach or golden whereas cool undertones have hints of pink and blue in their skin. Neutral undertones exhibit an equal mix of cool and warm tones and olive undertones comprise of a variation of yellow undertones or green undertones.

Undertone Tips & Tricks

1. Look at Your Wrists

An easy way to determine your undertone is to press on your wrist (with your thumb) and watch out for the first color that pops up. If you notice a yellow or olive color, you have warm undertones. If you have both blue and green shades, you are neutral.

2. Assess your jewelry

You are either attracted to either silver or gold jewelry because of the way it looks against their skin. If gold complements your skin better than silver, you likely have a warm undertone. If you have cool skin tones, silver will likely look better on you.

3. Look at Your Face in Natural Light

While standing in front of a well-lit mirror, preferably with your hair wrapped in a white towel, carefully examine what colors are hiding beneath the surface of your skin. If it’s blue-ish, you have cool undertones and if it’s yellowish you have warm undertones. Greenish hue is a neutral undertone.

4. How Does Your Skin React to Sun Exposure?

When you get out in the sun, is your skin the type that tans or burns easily? You can determine your skin undertone by examining how your skin reacts to the sun’s rays. If you tan easily but rarely burn, you likely have a warm undertone, while those who burn easily have a cool/fair skin tone.

Once you are done with these tests, you should have a good idea of what your undertones are.

Getting the Right Makeup for Your Undertone

Now that you know how to correctly determine your skin undertone, it’s time to find the right makeup to match your beautiful complexion. Tip: Your makeup choice should match your skin undertone.

Warm Undertones

If you have warm undertones, you look best when with a yellow-based or peach-based shade foundation paired with a warm peach or coral blush. For eye shadows, go with copper, gold or earthy shades (orange, olive, yellow or brown) and find lip shades of darker red, peachy pinks, and nude pink flavors.

Cool Undertones

People with cool undertones should, by all means, avoid yellowish foundations, as these tend to make the skin look sallower. Consider a foundation, bronzer, highlighter, or concealer with a slight dash of pink, blue, and green. Go for blue-reds, berries, and rosy pink flavors for your lipstick.

Neutral Undertones

People with neutral undertones look great in almost everything, especially makeup that’s neither overly pink nor yellow. A combination of both, like a peach foundation can work well.

Olive Undertone

For olive undertones, avoid warm, yellow foundations as these can make you look too yellow, and instead look for those with a slightly golden, green or earthy color.

With these insights, you’re well on your way to finding the perfect clean makeup for your complexion.
