What's the difference between skin tone and undertone?
There is one simple difference between skin tone and undertone. Your skin tone changes throughout the year and throughout your life, whereas your undertone never changes.
Skin tone refers to the surface skin colour, determined by the amount of melanin found in the upper layer of your skin. So things typically describe like light, fair, medium, tanned, dark. Stand out in the sun too long and your skin tone changes! Your undertone on the other hand never changes, it is the natural hue underneath the skin. Your undertone will be either warm, cool, or neutral. Doesn't matter if you're using your summer or winter foundation, the undertone of both will be exactly the same.
What are the different undertones?
Throughout the website you will find products labeled with Cool, Neutral, and Warm undertone tags. Before you can go ahead and purchase everything you need for your flawless look, you need to know all about the differences. So what's the difference? Check out all you need to know in the key below:
With a cool undertone, the skin has a pink hue. There is a lot less melanin present in the skin, which means that tanning hardly happens. Signs of the cold undertone are traces of redness, easy flushing and freckles. Colours like silver and ice blue look especially beautiful on cool undertones
With a neutral undertone, it is not clear whether the skin has. a cool or warm undertone. With this undertone you are the lucky one: both warm and cool colours let you shine!
With a warm undertone, the skin has a yellow hue. People with a warm undertone have a lot of melanin in their skin. Often these are also people with brown or blue/green eyes in combination with warm blond, chestnut brown or black hair. Earthy golden tones look amazing on warm undertones.
