I am so thankful I found this place.   After getting a haircut from a friend and realizing that it was a bad idea after the fact, I was in desperate need of fixing it.  After reading all the yelp reviews on here I decided to give this place a try since it's really near by...

Make-up Undertones

 

Make-Up Made Easy

To clear up what an undertone is verse your skin color, undertones can be described as cool, warm, or neutral and your skin color can be described as ivory, tan, olive, deep, etc. If you took a look at your face and still can't decide what undertone you are try some of these tests.

What color are the Veins inside your wrist?

  1. Blue veins: cooler tones
  2. Green veins: warmer

Looking elsewhere for clues to undertone

You're natural hair and eye color can also help you out when deciding your undertones. Cooler tone skin usually has: blue, green, or gray eyes with blonde, brown, and black hair that has violet, blue, and sliver ash tones. Warmer tone skin usually has: brown, Amber, or hazel eyes with strawberry blond, red, brown, or black hair. Their hair tends to have gold, red, orange, or yellow.

Cool Undertones : Look for shades that include one or more of these keys words: tan, shell, fawn beige. Most companies will label cool-toned foundations with a “C” and they tend to look a bit pinker in the bottle.

Neutral Undertone : Look for shades that fall somewhere in the middle on the cool–warm spectrum…not too pink and not too yellow. Most companies will label neutral-toned foundations with an “N”. In the case that your preferred brand doesn’t offer a neutral shade, err on the warm side—the yellow tones can cancel out redness and are generally more flattering.

Warm Undertone : Look for shades that include one or more of these key words: golden, honey, warm beige. Most companies will label warm-toned foundations with a “W” and they tend to look a bit more yellow in the bottle.

On to the blush choice

Now, I know I've been going on and on about matching your undertones but with your blush it's a different story. With your blush you want to choose the colors opposite. Using a blush opposite is going to add a nice pop to your look.

Cool Undertone: Avoid blushes with a pink or purple tint as they can appear too bright and overdone on your already cool skin. Opt for a warm peach or soft orange blush instead.

Warm Undertone: Avoid blushes with an orange or peach tint as they can appear unnoticeable (matchy matchy) or add too much warmth to your already warm skin. Opt for a cool pink or mauve-y purple blush instead.

Neutral Undertone: Consider yourself a lucky gal—you should be able to wear both cool and warm blush shades without

 

Last the contour selection

We all know that contouring is meant to create a shadow affect. If the shade is the wrong undertone it's going to be far from natural.

Cool Undertone: Avoid warm-toned contours as they can appear orange and unnatural. Instead, look for shades that have just a smidgeon of gray in them.

Warm Undertone: Avoid cool-toned contours as they can appear muddy or ashy. Instead, look for shades that have just smidgeon of red in them.

Neutral Undertone: It’s up to you! A neutral contour (not too gray and not too red) will obviously be right up your alley, otherwise, a warm-toned contour will make you look a little more bronzy and a cool-toned contour will make you look a little more chiseled.
