Your skin color and tone is different from your undertone. Generally if you are pale, medium, or dark that's your general skin color. Within these color categories we have several shades or tones like ivory, sand...etc. What you generally find in foundation color ranges. But what tells what suits you best in all categories like hair color, outfit colors, makeup color shades...etc. is your undertone. As designers we usually study that colors are formed through a formula of mixed colors. So the color red can have a warm undertone or a cool undertone.

    Hi! Angie I need help. I’m so confuse because in your blog its says I am Autumn but in the app you share(eyes on hue) I am Winter. I’m looking for information and my problem is that I think I’m not winter cause I have warm undertone I always use Warm foundation and look great on me.
    I have dark brown eyes, brunette hair, green veins, I look best in white gold or silver and have warm skin tone. Please help me I am going crazy, LOL
    Sorry if I write something wrong my first language is Spanish. Hope you can answer me.

    I am having the same problem as the other comment here. I always thought my skin tone was warm/yellow. My veins are mostly green but I actually have some blue and even some purple. Now I think I may be a dark winter and that is what the app told me.
    Now I that I see celebrities like Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz are deep winters I believe I am also deep winter. I am Mexicana with a similar complexion to theirs. If that’s the case, I have been colored matched for makeup at Sephora my whole life. Everything I have in foundations, powders, and concealer is Warm and warm/neutral.
