Nudes and Skin Tones

Everyone has different skin tones. The trick is to find out which tone you relate to based on the undertones in your skin! Southern Living describes how easy it is to find your tone! Typically if you have a lighter skin tone, the undertones will be cooler colors. If you have darker skin the undertones will be warmer colors. However just your overall skin tone is not always the deciding factor.

If you look at the veins on the inside of your wrist, they can help determine if you have cool or warm undertones. Greenish ones reflect warm undertones while purple ones reflect cool undertones. There is another thing to consider in finding the perfect color to fit your skin, which is neutrals. Once you find the undertone, the color that works best for you will really POP!

“When it comes to nude lacquers, it’s important to remember that you aren’t trying to match your skin tone exactly—it won’t be the most flattering. Look for colors that are one to two shades lighter or darker than your tone.” -Southern Living
