How to find out what colors flatter you the most
Do you ever wonder why some people seem to always look more radiant and healthy than you? Odds are good that they have figured out what colors look best on them. It is really no secret once you know where to look. I had my colors done when I was a teenager and they have mainly stayed the same. So, how do you find out what colors flatter you the most?
You probably already have some clues. What colors do you naturally gravitate towards? What colors make you look healthier even when you don’t have on any makeup?
First Step – Figure out your Skin’s Undertone
Are you a warm, cool, or neutral? An easy way to tell whether you are warm or cool is if veins in your wrist appear to be more green or yellow (warm) or blue or purple (cool). You may be a neutral if you can’t tell for sure if you are warm or cool.
Second Step – Hair Color
Is your hair color naturally dark blonde to dark brown? Then, you are probably warm. Cool hair colors can be either light blond or very dark brown to black. If you are neutral, your hair color is probably a mix of colors – brown with warmer streaks or blonde with ashy tones.
Third Step – Eye Color
To help solidify whether you are warm, cool, or neutral, check your eye color. Cool toned people generally have eyes that are blue, green, or gray. Warm toned people usually have eyes that are brown, amber or hazel.
Fourth Step – Sun Test
If you are cool toned, you probably either always burn after being in the sun or burn and then tan. Warm toned people tend to turn golden brown.
By now, you should know if you have warm, cool, or neutral undertones. You may wonder if this changes as you age. The main thing that changes about your colors as you age is you will look better in a more mellow shade. And, just because you may look better in a particular color near your face where it can make your eyes pop more, doesn’t mean you can’t wear it as an accessory or away from your face.
There are many resources on the web once you know what color family you will look your best in.

That is a quick overview on what colors will suit you best. You can deep dive into this subject if you are interested. There are many websites and books devoted to figuring out the specifics of your best colors. Enjoy!
