If you want to find out which tone your skin is, there are two ways to do it. The first is determining the tone by the color of your veins, while the second includes carefully looking at the color of your skin and considering its behavior.

  • If your veins are dark blue, your skin tone is most likely cool. This means that your hair color is probably black, dark brown, or blonde. Your eye color is brown or light blue. As for your skin, it is most likely with a pale shade, and easily burns in the sun, or tends to become red when exposed to the sun’s rays.
  • If your veins are more green than blue, then your skin tone is most likely warm skin. You have a light blond or red hair color, and hazel, green, or blue colored eyes. As for the skin tone, it probably has a color of espresso or ebony.
  • In the case, your skin doesn’t come with redness, olive, or espresso color, it is definitely a neutral tone. This kind of skin tone fits in the category of cool skin tones.

Depending on your mood, or on how you want to look, your jewelry can highlight certain parts of your body, or keep some of them “Under the radar”. For example, by strategically placing jewelry, you can balance the proportions of your body, or draw attention to, or away from, some body parts.

  • If you want to highlight your sexy parts, try wearing pieces with flashy, bold colors on those body parts, or near them.
  • For a proportion balance, if you are a large woman, big jewelry pieces will make you look proportional and not out of balance. On the other hand, if you are of a smaller size, try wearing smaller jewelry pieces. It’s all in the balance!
