To be able to use the right makeup products, you should know whether you have a cool or a warm skin tone. Here are some tips for determining your skin undertone along with makeup ideas for women with a cool undertone.
If using makeup products can accentuate your looks, there is no reason why you shouldn't use them. However, you should know which products to use to avert fashion disasters. If you wish to make heads turn, you definitely need to know the products that go well with your skin tone.
One's skin tone is basically categorized on the basis of cool and warm undertones. If you have rosy complexion and the color of the veins on your wrist appears to be blue, then you have a cool skin undertone. So, to bring out the best in you in terms of looks, you must identify your skin undertone.

Difference between a Cool and Warm Skin Undertone

Cool skin tone is basically a skin type with bluish undertones. If the color of the veins on your wrist is bluish, then you definitely have this skin undertone. On the other hand, if the veins appear to have a greenish tinge, then you have a warm skin tone.
Here's another method to identify your skin undertone. Get hold of a silver and a gold earring. Look at yourself in the mirror to find out which metal looks better on you. Most fashionistas believe that silver looks better than gold on those who have a cool undertone.
Since people with a warm undertone have more of yellow, bronze, or golden tinge, gold ornaments look good on them.

Makeup Ideas for Women with a Cool Skin Undertone

While buying lipsticks, you must buy shades of pinks, mauve, blue-based reds, berry, plum, and burgundy. These will surely make you look prettier. Don't ever use colors that have a golden tinge. Make sure that the makeup foundation is not yellow, gold, or bronze-based.
Always use a pink-based foundation, as that will make your cheeks look rosier. The use of right shades will surely make your skin look radiant. A tinge of plum blush on your cheeks will also do the trick.
When it comes to the eyeshadow, you can apply cool icy shades such as lilac, violet, blue, lavender, or pink. Use the jewel tones such as blues, pinks, purples, magenta, and blue-based reds even for your clothing.
When it comes to eye makeup, it would be better not to use dark black. It is also important that you pay attention to your hair color. Your hair color must also suit your skin undertone. You will end up looking dull, if you use shades that are actually meant for warm undertones.
You can opt for shades of ash. Platinum or ash blond, brown, shades of violet, or colors with a tinge of purple will certainly look great. Other hair colors that may suit this skin tone are burgundy, strawberry blond, violet-based reds, chestnut brown, cherry, garnet, or ruby. You can also go for honey, ash, or caramel hair highlights.
If you have a cool undertone, then following the aforementioned tips will certainly accentuate your features. So, use the right makeup products to spice up your look and make heads turn!
