Look your best with the right colour

Did you know that you could look even more beautiful just by finding out whether you are a warm or  a cool colour type?
When selecting  your blush, lip colours and any all-over face colours,  and even your clothes you need to know if you should purchase cool or warm colours.
This is based on the undertone of your skin.

 With the correct colours, your skin tone will appear radiant and glowing and your eyes will appear brighter and clearer.And the best bet you are wearing right colours is if you hear compliments  such as "You look fabulous"!With the wrong colours, your skin tone will appear tired and drained and our eyes may appear shadowed with dark circles. And usually you will hear comments  such as "You look tired, are you OK?"

Quick test
If your veins appear bluish you are cool toned, if they appear greenish you are warm toned.
If you look better in silver jewellery then you are a cool type, and if you look better in gold, then you are a warm type.
If you look better in ivory and cream then you are warm type, and if you look better in white you are cool type.

I  prepared a little chart for you to find out if you are cool or warm type lady...
this is only a rough guidance, as  loads of exemptions apply to this rules.
 For example you may have neutral skin tone , meaning you look equally good in cool and warm colours. Lucky you!
 So if you are not sure if you are cool or warm type look at the following chart:
