It is important to take the undertone of your complexion into consideration. The universal categorization of undertones is as follows:
Pink undertones: cool complexion
Yellow undertones: warm complexion
There is no real method to determining your undertone. However, if your veins appear more blue, you more than likely have pink undertones. If your veins appear more green, you more than likely have yellow undertones. Seek the professional assessment of a makeup artist if you are still unsure.
Cool complexion: complimented by blue based colors
Warm complexion: complimented by yellow, orange based colors
