An easy way to discover your undertone is by looking at your veins on the inside of your wrist. If your veins appear blue, your skin likely has cool undertones; if your veins appear green, your skin likely has warm undertones. If your veins are somewhere between blue and green then you have a neutral undertone.
Another way we recommend determining your undertone is by looking at how your skin tone reacts to a long period of time under the sun. For instance, you have a cool undertone if you have more pink to the skin and burn easily in the sun. You have a warm undertone if you have more yellow to the skin and tan easily under the sun. You have a neutral undertone if your skin gains both a pink and yellow hue and you burn before becoming tan.
Lastly, the shade of jewelry that looks best on your skin tone can also help you understand your undertone! If your complexion looks best with silver jewelry you likely have a cool undertone; if your complexion looks best with gold jewelry, you likely have a warm undertone. If you look great in both shades, you most likely have a neutral undertone.
