Ever wondered why when you bought this shirt and tried it you looked dull. Or when you show the hairdresser a color and get it done you look sick. Ever wondered how celebrities always look on point? Well the answer is color analysis, they pay specialists to get a color undertone analysis. I hope when you read this post it helps you know your analysis and be able to choose colors that suit you.
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.
