>Finding Your Skin Undertones


Good mid-morning everyone! I wanted to share this with you, because it's got a ton of great information here about how to find your skin undertones and find makeup that will flatter your skin instead of giving you a funny shade. Ever pick a shade of foundation too light and the final look is like you're a painted mask? Or too dark, and your face is darker than your neck?! We've all had these Oops! moments- so do not fear! We've all mostly been through this by trial and error… And spending money to summarily give the product away, or throw it in the trash thoroughly disgusted that the color isn't right…. Proceeding to next raid the freezer for that pint of Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia ice cream for comfort. Ok, well, maybe you don't like that flavor, but I do! But it's the general gist of things, right? Right!
First off, I have to say I did not write this article/information below. I found this post made by pbsadhaka over at Essential Daily Spa. While I'd have loved to take the time, write and create an explanation as good as this, I didn't. Just wanted to make it available for you to reference and hopefully have more success with finding products which will look good on you, instead of buying products only to get them home and find out they don't work. Ugh .That's the worst! So read on my friends! And everything below is 100% credited to pbsadhaka for coming up with such a comprehensive, but easy way to do this!

Skin tones can be broken down into 4 categories: olive, red/pink, golden, & neutral. The easiest way to find your true skin tone is to hold a piece of white paper up to the skin where your neck meets your collarbone.
