I'm new to makeup and I want to pick nice lipstick colors to start out. I've read that lipstick depends on whether you're warm or cool toned, but I can't tell from my veins which one I am. Which tone am I? And is this the right trick to use?
Skin tone is the surface skin color - whether you have pale, light or dark skin. Skin undertone is the subtle hue underneath the surface - I think what you're wanting to find out is your undertone - whether warm, cool or neutral. If you're veins will look green, it means you have a warm undertone. If it's blue or purplish, it means you have a cool undertone. My veins appear green and some purple so mine I have a neutral undertone. Looking at the picture, If i'm not mistaken, I'm seeing green which means you have a warm undertone.
