1. IDENTIFY YOUR UNDERTONES
If you have warm undertones you probably tan easily, have greenish veins and look great in gold. If you have cool skin undertones, you probably burn easily, have bluish veins and look great in silver.
2. TEST THE SHADES
Next, test the shades that you think are a good match on your jawline in a well-lit environment.
3: Watch It Disappear
If a shade stands out, it’s too light or dark. If the test shade ‘disappears’ into your skin, it’s a match!
4. TAKE IT HOME
Once you have chosen you shade, pick up at any The Body Shop store or order online!
HOW CAN I TELL IF I HAVE WARM OR COOL UNDERTONES?
Warm skin tans easily, has greenish veins and suits gold jewelry, while cool skin burns easily, has bluish veins and suits silver jewelry best. If it’s tricky for you to tell, you have neutral skin undertones
