It’s essential for a redhead to know if her skin is warm or cool because it becomes so easy for you to pick the perfect shades of makeup that will look fabulous and flattering on your skin.

What is cool (pink) and warm (yellow) tones?

Cool Tones:

This means you have a blue-green tint to go with that fleshy skin color. 

Complexion is really pale or rosy.

Silver jewelry and blue and green clothing compliments your skin.

Your wrist veins are blue. 

Usually, this skin type burns very easily and turns red after or during sun exposure. 

Warm Tones:

This means you have peaches, reds, and purples mixed into your skin color.

Its complexion is usually beige, golden, olive, and bronze.

Gold jewelry and orange-red and yellow clothing suites you.

Your wrist veins are more green and this skin type tans very easily.

Remember, if you’re noticing you’re in the middle for most, then you’re probably in the neutral group.
