Have you ever fallen in love with a lipstick color or eyeshadow shade, only to find out that it doesn't quite suit you? There's a paradox: colors that look attractive on the palette can sometimes make your skin look dull and age-related.

In addition to the obvious natural skin color, it is the undertone that plays an important role in determining which color palette is right for your makeup. The undertone can be cold, warm, or neutral. An interesting life hack is gaining popularity online: how to determine skin tone with jewelry.

What is a skin tone?

Professional makeup artist Jalisa Jaikaran noted that, unlike skin tone, the undertone does not change depending on the season or the level of sunlight.

"The undertone will not change in different seasons, as the skin tone can change. For example, in summer, the shade of your foundation will be darker than in winter due to sun exposure. However, your skin tone will always remain the same," Jaikaran said.

Only by determining your skin tone and shade can you choose the right cosmetics: foundation, powder, or bronzer. There are several ways to do this, but the metal test has recently become particularly popular on social media.

How to use the metal test to determine skin tone

Makeup expert Rose Seard demonstrated a simple metal test. She used jewelry and eye shadow to determine skin tone. The jewelry test has been around for years, but using eye shadow is more innovative – and more practical for many people.

To test it, take yellow gold and white gold/silver and put one piece of jewelry on your skin to compare. If the yellow gold blends in better with your skin, then you most likely have a warm complexion, while the silver or white gold is cool.

Can't decide between two options because they both suit you equally? In this case, you may have a neutral undertone. You can also test silver and gold eyeshadows in the same way.

By the way, it is quite difficult to find that perfect color among the many shades of red lipstick – from rich and deep to more restrained and cool. The choice of the optimal color depends primarily on the characteristics of the skin. Read the article to find out how to choose the right lipstick tone depending on your natural complexion.
