There are four distinct palettes for skin tones, which are categorised as either warm or cool tones.

Warm tones include Spring and Autumn, while cool tones include Summer and Winter. Use this guide to easily distinguish between the four skin tones:

  • Spring: A warm undertone with a delicate, peachy glow, complemented by shades of coral, turquoise, and warm pastels.
  • Summer: A cool undertone with a touch of rosy or blue hues, harmonising well with soft blues, pinks, and lavenders.
  • Autumn: Boasting warm undertones, leaning towards golden or peachy hues, and are complemented by earthy shades like olive, rust, and mustard
  • Winter: A cool undertone with a hint of blue or pink, creating a striking contrast with jewel tones like emerald, sapphire, and royal purple.

Having a clear understanding of these unique colour palettes can help you in making well-informed decisions when it comes to choosing the perfect makeup tones that will accentuate your innate beauty.
