Colorimetry is a study based on the Theory of Color, where the physical characteristics of people, such as hair, eyes, and skin tone, are studied to see which colors compliment your features. There are four stations that will help you discover which tones are best for you. You can use these colors to inspire your style of outfits, hair, and makeup.
Determining whether you have a warm or cold skin tone:
Take a peek at your wrist and notice what color your veins are. If your veins are tinted green, then you have a warm skin tone. On the other hand, if your veins are tinted blue, you have a cold skin tone.
Your eye color and natural hair can also help you decide. Typically people with lighter features, such as blue or green eyes and blonde or light brown haird, have a cool skin tone; People with brown or black eyes and hair typically have a warm skin tone.
Find an orange object and a pink one too; This can be a t-shirt, handkerchief, paper, etc. Look in a mirror with natural light and place the objects, one at a time, under your chin. If the orange looks better, you have a warm skin tone. If you feel pink is better, you have a cold skin tone.
These rules are just generalizations, making it possible for you to be a blend of both skin tones – That’s okay! This is why we are here to help with the color-decision process:
