Affusion Skin Care and Mineral Makeup has a fantastic post on how to tell if your skin coloring is Warm or Cool based. Once you have this choice down, picking makeup and foundation tones suddenly becomes much easier.

I’m a warm, with little yellow skin “highlights”.

Great and informative post. I was always told that it depended on eye color. If the eye color was a cool color (the cool end of the color wheel) then so was the skin tone. I have gray eyes with hints of cool green but my skin is quite yellow and pink. This makes much more sense.

This is a great post, thanks for changing the colors on the comment page too, I forgot to mention that!

I am definitely a cool and fair toned gal. I love pure whites, but anything too yellow or green really doesn’t flatter me. I love wearing red though, just it has to be the right red.

Knowing your tone really does make the search for the right clothes, cosmetics, and hair color a lot more simple! :)

I’ve had such a tough time up until now with figuring out my skin tone. I look much better in White, but have dark brown eyes, and slightly olive skin. But now that I’ve figured it all out, it makes much more sense. I hated going into the drugstore and seeing those little swatch charts- Warm, Cool, or Neutral. “Heck if I know.”
You are right, it’s much easier to shop now! :-)
