- 1. What You Need to Know Before Purchasing Makeup
2. One of the most important things to do before applying --or even purchasing-- makeup is to know your skin tone. 3. It is either warm, or cool. If you put cool makeup on warm skin, it gives the opposite effect of what is desired. 4. You will want the same energy level of colors that is in your skin to also be in your makeup, your wardrobe, and your hair color. 5. Determining your skin tone is a delicate process, and the best way to do so is by contacting a professional. 6. That being said, it is possible to get a general idea on your own. 7. Look at the inside of your wrist. If your veins appear blue, you are most likely a cool. If your veins appear green, you are most likely a warm. 8. Now look at the back of your hand. Cool skin tones will have pink and blue undertones. Warm skin tones will have orange- yellow undertones. 9. A professional can help you further understand your specific skin tone, and to know what colors will make you look radiant-- and which to avoid! 10. In choosing makeup colors, Warms should choose shades that are peach or yellow based. Cool should choose shades with blue or rose undertones.
