Your Guide to Skin Undertones:
You may have heard a lot of talk about warm and cool skin undertones, but what about those of us with neutral skin?
Skin with a neutral undertone doesn't fall specifically into either the warm or the cool category, and usually, women with neutral skin will find that they suit both silver and gold jewellery, and can wear a mix of jewel, pastel, autumnal and dusky colours easily.
Having a neutral undertone is a great blessing because it means that you don't have to be as selective about your makeup and clothing shade choices to look great!
If you are unsure whether you have a neutral skin undertone, why not take our colour quiz below to find out?
Neutral Toned Gallery
All of the women in this gallery have a neutral skin undertone. You will notice that their skin shade ranges from pale to light to medium / tan. It's important to note that even with a darker or more tanned skin shade, you aren't necessarily warm toned. You can have a neutral undertone and still look tanned. Take a look at these galleries of warm toned and cool toned women. When seen together like this, it can be easier to get a sense of the shared undertone of each group.
The best way to be sure that you have a neutral skin tone is to imagine yourself in different-coloured clothing. In some of the images below, our ladies wear jewel purple tones. This is a cool clothing colour so can make them appear cool.
However, if you imagine these same ladies in a warm orange or coral colour, you will notice that this flatters their skin too. Often people that have a warm or cool undertone will find that they look 'lifeless' or 'sallow' in the clothing of the opposite tone. Women with neutral skin are lucky because this rarely happens to them!
Choosing Makeup for Neutral Skin
All makeup on the Look Fabulous Forever website is divided into cool and warm tones. But if you are neutral, you can disregard this! Feel free to shop from both the warm and cool categories and enjoy the wide range of shades available to you. Take a look at some of the shades you could opt for as a neutral toned woman below...
