Your Undertone and the colour wheel

Knowing your undertones and your colours can make a colour combo pop on you or fall a little flat. Pulling together colour combos with the help of some science can transform your look from oh so flat to fan frickin tabulous. 

Lets start with your Undertone

 Go ahead and turn your hand over, palm up, taking a gander at the underside of your wrist. What color are the veins? If they look blue or purple, you're cool toned. If they look green or have a yellow cast, you're warm toned. That's it. Simple.

Now what does that mean for you?

Cool tones embrace blue, silver and gray
Warm Tones embrace yellow, brown, earthy colours. 


The colour Wheel

Get to know the wheel!! Ever noticed how the colour wheel is split in half, half Warm and half cool colours?? Your skins undertone will help you to understand which side of the colour wheel compliments your colouring. 

I am a cool so I wear lots of cool based colours, pairing them with complimentary colours on the opposite side of the wheel, for example a cool toned violet top , grey, red and pink...





Have you figured your colours?? What do you think?
