Your skin undertone is the hint of colour that peeks through your skin, and it affects your skin's overall shade. Knowing your undertones and what colours work with your skin makes all the difference when choosing makeup and clothes that will complement your complexion.

If you are cool you most likely have pink or blue undertones and your skin burns easily in the sun. 

The veins in your wrists are most likely blue-purple, you look better in silver rather than gold jewelry you most likely have ashy tones in your (natural) hair colour, be it platinum blonde, ashy brown or jet black. 

Think Amanda Seyfried, Emma Stone, Anne Hathaway, Cara Delevingne, Lucy Liu or Lupita Nyong'o.


If this sounds like you, then here are the Flavedo & Albedo shades to wear to best compliment your colouring. 

Bright Stripe Eyeliner:

Cool skin tones look great in Black, White, and the universally flattering Lavender

Avoid anything too warm, yellow or golden as they will drain the colour right out of your skin. 

Velvet eyeshadow:

Explore shades like Rose Quartz (particularly if you are fair), Cool Bronze (the perfect metallic shade that won’t wash you out like a gold shadow would), Hazelnut (for a soft neutral) or Sky Blue (a cool and vibrant shade for those who are a little more adventurous). 

Dew Tint:

Rose is the perfect dewy shade that will complement the cool undertones of your skin. 

High Glow:

This buttery highlighter in Pearl or Bronzite provides a subtle luminous glow.

Tip: if you are looking for a lip colour blue-based red lipsticks are the perfect shade for cool toned skin.
