The No. 1 Fall Makeup Trend -- And How to Pull It Off
Is gloss your go-to? Not sure you can pull off the bold new lip trends for fall? Let this be your guide
Step No. 1: Figure out your undertoneBefore you even think about colors, you need to determine your skin's undertones in order to find the most flattering hue for your skin. Take these three tests to figure out whether you're "warm" or "cool."
• Wear a pure white towel or bathrobe and wrap your hair in another white towel in your bathroom and look at your skin in a mirror (the white helps the color under your skin be more pronounced). If your skin looks blue-ish, you have cool undertones. If it looks yellow-ish, you have warm undertones.
• Hold a silver piece of jewelry as well as a gold piece against your skin: Which one looks better? Try not to think about your taste preferences. If the silver looks more harmonious on your skin, you have cool undertones. If the gold looks better, you have warm undertones.
• Go out in the sunlight and look at the veins on your underarm. If your veins look blue-ish or blue-purple, you have cool undertones. If they look yellow or green, you have warm undertones.
When you know what your undertones are, you're ready to find the perfect fall lip color for you.
