Color Analysis Models
1. Warm vs Cool (vs Neutral) :
This model takes the skin undertones to define the best colors for you.
Warm skin undertones are usually defined or uncovered by the colors of your vein found on your wrist under the skin looking green. If you also look better in gold than in silver, this also tells you that you have a warm skin undertone.
Cool skin undertones are usually defined or uncovered by the colors of your vein found on your wrist under the skin is blue or purple. If you also look better in silver rather than gold, it also means you have a cool skin undertone.
If neither of above cool nor warm applies to you, the chances are you have a neutral skin undertone. In neutral skin undertones, the colors of the vein are often found in both bluish and greenish colors, and they also look good in silver or gold.
