10 Products You Need If You Have Warm Undertones
If you're someone with a warm skin tone and undertones, you've probably noticed hues of yellow, gold, and peach in your skin tone. There are plenty of ways to discover what your undertone is, including this quiz. However, if you're in a pinch, a good way to know whether you have a warm undertone is to see if your veins appear more green than blue and if gold jewelry complements your skin better than silver.
If you have warm undertones, browns, gold, bronzes, and copper-toned shades will look best on you. If you're looking for go-to lip shades, you can't go wrong with rich reds and oranges. Coral and fuchsia tones work as blush as well, and you should reach for bronzers and highlighters embedded with gold flecks. You'll also want to lean more toward brown than black when it comes to eyeliner and mascara.
