What is your skintone?

Have you ever tried to recreate a makeup look that looked amazing
on someone else, but it just didn’t work for you? Or maybe you
experimented with a new shade of lipstick that seemed amazing
in the tube but just didn’t flatter your face at all?We’ve all been there! 
We know it can feel really frustrating, but there is a simple trick to
figuring out which colours will work the hardest to bring out your
natural beauty. Today we're going to show you how to find
your skin’s undertone,and pick the right makeup to match. Let’s do this.

So what is my undertone?

There are a few signs we can check to determine if our undertone
falls into the cool, warm or neutral range. Check the chart above
to determine your undertone.

How to pick your makeup?

Cool Undertones

Your best foundation picks are: 

Shades with a very subtle cool-tone. They might have names
like shell or fawn. The most important tip with foundation is
to see what looks best on your skin in natural light and
make sure it matches your neck as closely as possible.

Try our BB Cream in Light and Creamy.

 

Your best blush picks are:

When it comes to blush, you want the opposite to your
foundation! Those with a warm base like peach shades
will look stunning.

Try our Pressed Mineral Blush in Golden Apricot.

 

Your best lip colour picks are:

Blue or purple-based shades are typically best to complement
cool undertones.

Give our Beeswax Mineral Lipsticks a go in Raspberry Sorbet.



Warm Undertones

Your best foundation picks are:


Shades with a super subtle warm-tone. They might have

names like honey or golden. If in doubt, see how a shade
looks on your skin in natural light and ensure it matches
the skin on your neck as closely as possible.

Your best blush picks are:

To contrast against your foundation, you want to go
for cool-based blush colours. Think more mauve,
purple or pink-based shades. 
Try our Pressed Mineral Blush in Pretty Pink.

Your best lip colour picks are:

You can rock red or orange shades! Coral and peach
hues will look amazing as well.
Give our Beeswax Mineral Lipsticks a go in Carmel’s Coral.


Neutral Undertones

Your best foundation picks are:

Anything that matches! While you can go either way,
shades with a warm undertone are generally more flattering. 
Try our BB Cream in Sunkissed.

 

Your best blush picks are:

Luckily for you, you can rock just about any blush shade you like.
Experiment with some different shades to see what you like the most.
Play around with any of our Pressed Mineral Blush shades.

 

Your best lip colour picks are:

Similar to blush, you can pull off almost any shade.
Time to play with some new colours and challenge yourself!
Try our Mineral Lip Palette to get 5 shades in one.

 

But what about eye colour shades? The good news is,
our undertones will never limit our choice of eyeshadow
shades. So you can go crazy! Eye colour tends to be
more important for selecting your eye looks. Typically, a
complementary or contrasting shade will work best, for example;
blue or brown/golden shades for blue or brown eyes, and
green or purple shades for green eyes. Smokey eyes or
neutral colours are a safe bet for everyone!

 

Hopefully this blog has helped you figure out your own
undertones and inspired you to try some new makeup
shades! Remember that ultimately, this is just a guide
and the most important thing when it comes to makeup
is that you have fun with it. When you do, be sure to
