Warm Or Cold? Skin & Hair Type

So have you ever wondered why does that tone of pink look so good on your friend but so bad on you? why can’t you rock them red lips like your sister? Well I have all your answers….

Are you warm or cold? am talking skin colour not personality!!

You’re likely a “warm” if you have brown or dark eyes, dark hair either brown or black and golden, olive or dark skin (most Latinas, Asians and African Americans fall into this category). “Warm” women tan easily and the veins in their inner wrists are green.

You’re fall into the “cool” category if you have fair skin and blue or green eyes, you burn before you tan and the veins in your wrists run blue.

So now you know which type you are you can know what works for you…


Warm babes are better off using warm colours corals, golds, oranges and nudes for blush and lips and deep colours for your eyes, stay away from the pastels!!. On the other hand Cool babes are better off using cold tones such as pinks and peaches for lips and cheeks and can get off with pastels and greys for eyes… The same rule usually applies to clothing!

Hair Colour

If you have warm babe, go for golden shades such as caramel and bronze in a darker shade than your skin. Avoid jet-black hair which will wash you out and old!. If you do go for a golden shade, don’t go too light or your hair could turn orange ( Unless its Halloween and your fancy dress is a pumpking) . You can  go blonde as a warm,  but it is a delicate process and should be done by a professional, not on your own.

If you are a cool babe, avoid colors such as gold, auburn or copper. They will only highlight the ruddiness of your skin tone. Ash blondes and cool browns work best.

Hope this info helps!
