How to check if you have a warm skin tone?

Various ways can be followed to know whether you have a warm skin tone or not. Let us look at some of the examples.

Checking through a white cloth

The white cloth procedure can be carried out at home. All you need to do is to take a plain bright white cloth. You can use a sheet or towel instead. Go into a bright room with a white light and stand in front of the mirror. If your skin looks good in the white towel then you have a cool skin tone.

If your skin looks quite odd then you have warm skin complexion. You can confirm this by putting on an off-white towel or cloth. However, this procedure can be confusing when you have a neutral skin tone. For this, you need to take other steps as well.

Checking through Jewelry

One of the most popular and effective ways to check your warm tone is with the jewelry test. This is simple. Take pieces of golden and silver jewelry like bangles, necklaces, etc. Wear them up like golden jewelry on one hand and silver on the other.

Now compare both of them and see which side looks more appealing. If the hand with the golden ornaments is looking more vivid then you have a warm skin for sure. If the silver jewelry looks fit to your skin than the gold ones it means that you have a cool skin tone. If both sides are looking equally marvelous then you have a neutral undertone.

Checking through the color of veins

There is another popular way to check your skin tone. This procedure is done in the daylight. Go out in the sun and check your veins on your wrists and arms. If the veins appear to be more greenish in shade then you are a warm skinned person.

If the veins look more bluish than green then it indicates that you have a cooler skin tone, if it is a mix of both then you have a neutral skin tone.

Checking through clothes

One of the easiest ways to find out about your skin tone is through your clothes. For this, you need different shades of clothes and a nicely lit room. Now if you do not know about the color palette already then let me remind you that reddish, brownish, copper, bronze, golden, yellow and orange are all warm shades. If you wear clothes with these colors and you look a perfect match especially if your skin looks blended with these shades then you do have warm skin complexion.

On the contrary, if your skin looks more alluring in cool shades like blue, green, grey, etc then you have a cool skin tone. If all your clothes look good no matter which color you wear then you are blessed with a neutral undertone.

Checking through Hair and Eye colors

Your hair and eyeshades can tell a lot about your undertone. If you have these beautiful brown hair, or you have a strawberry blonde then you are warm skinned. Your eyes would likely be dark brown, hazel, or black. If you want to dye your hair then make sure that it matches your warm undertone.

Checking through reaction from the sun

There is another good way to check what type of skin undertone you possess. Go out in the sunlight. Make sure that you wear some good sunscreen so that the UV rays do not penetrate deep into your skin. Then let the sunlight soak into your skin.

If you notice that your skin has been tanned but not burned, then it indicates that you have warm skin complexion. And if your skin burns at once and you have a hard time standing under the sun then you are a cold skinned person. Neutral skin tone has a mixed reaction to the sunlight. Protecting from harmful sun-light helps to increase collagen and elastin your skin.

Trying bright orange is not a bad idea as you will look drop-dead gorgeous in it especially in your bikinis. This also looks good on caramel skin complexion.
