Are you looking for a comprehensive makeup tutorial? No need to look any further, lady! Today’s makeup tutorial will show you how to choose the ideal makeup colours for your skin tone so you can always appear fresh and fabulous no matter where you go! This is a basic guide that will help you to learn which colours are best for your type of skin.
First of all, you need to ask yourself one question: ‘What is my skin tone?’ The best way to determine your skin tone is by looking at the veins on the inside of your wrist. If they are blue, you have a cool skin tone. If they are green or olive-coloured, then you have a warm skin tone. And if they are a mixture of both, you have a neutral skin tone.
#1 Cool Skin Tone
For those with cool skin tones, it is best to use colours that will give you warmth. You can do this by using gold or bronze eyeshadow as the main colour and brushing a darker shade over the crease area. If you want to wear eyeliner, it’s best to go for a navy or brown colour. Navy is perfect for those with blue veins and brown is the choice of those who have green veins:
Do not use red or pink blushes as they have a tendency to look dirty on the skin. Instead, opt for orange-based colours such as coral, peach and apricot.
#2 Warm Skin Tone
Those with warm skin tones can wear any colour eyeshadow from silver all the way through to dark purple as these will give you a cool appearance. Navy and black eyeliners are also good for this type of skin tone:
Warm colours such as red or pink can be used on the lips to give your face warmth, while peachy blushes will add a rosy glow.
#3 Neutral Skin Tone
If you have a mixture of both blue and green veins, then you will have a neutral skin tone. This means that you can wear any colour of eyeshadow and eyeliner without it clashing with your skin tone. You can also use cool or warm colours for blushes and lipsticks:
Choosing the right shade of foundation is another important element to get right when choosing makeup for different skin tones.
