Remember those childhood birthday photos where you are rocking that quirky dress and weird hairstyle? All thanks to our very own personal stylist, a.k.a mom
Now, as adults with an advanced fashion sense, we understand our body shape, the type of clothes that suits us, and colours.
Colours can truly level up your styling game. They are like the secret sauce in fashion- they have the power to make you stand out and radiate with confidence.
But there’s a catch.
Not every colour will have that magical touch for you. It's up to you to uncover the shades that truly light up your skin tone (and no, we're not talking about fairness here).
Let’s dive into the world of colours and how we can make them harmonise with our unique skin tones -
Skin Undertone -
First thing first - What is a skin undertone?
Skin undertone is all about those subtle hints of cool, warm, or natural shades hiding beneath your skin which is different from skin complexion. Knowing your undertone is like having a cheat code to look your absolute best in any outfit.
Coming to our next question -
How can I find my undertone?
There are 3 main types of undertones - warm, cool, and neutral. There are some simple skin undertone tests that can help you figure out which category you fall in -
Take a look at the veins on the underside of your wrist.
Warm undertone: If they appear slightly greenish or olive colour.
Cool undertone: If it gives a shade of blue or purple, you have cool undertone skin
Neutral undertone: If you can’t decide if it is greenish or blue, then you probably have neutral undertones.
Pay attention to how your skin reacts under the sun. If you tend to tan easily then you probably have warm-toned skin. On the other hand, if you burn easily or go all pink and red whenever under the sun then you have cool-toned skin.
Hold both gold and silver jewellery to your neck and notice which one compliments your skin. You have a cool skin tone if silver suits you better and a golden (warm) skin tone if gold looks flattering on you. If you are rocking both the jewellery then it is a neutral skin tone (quite a flex!).
How to choose colours for your undertones -
Now that you have cracked the code on your skin undertone, it's time to discover which colours will make you shine like a diamond.

If you are feeling particularly adventurous and bold play with attention-grabbing colours like - electric blue, neon orange, deep purple, and crimson red.

Rock your neutral undertone like Selena Gomez
If you have got that awesome neutral undertone rocking your skin, you’re in for a colour extravaganza. Try blush pink which adds a touch of femininity to your looks. You can play with colours like olive green, dusty rose, chocolate brown, or soft gold. But colours like reds, yellow, or anything too bright might be overwhelming for your skin. Avoid very pale or muted colours that can make you appear washed out.
