Quoted from preview.ph, personal color is a color match or unique color for each person that can be applied to make our skin color, texture, character and natural features stand out more.
Furthermore, color compatibility not only affects appearance, but also our personal and psychological image, you know.
Apart from Korea, personal color analysis is also widely applied in America. This color compatibility test is not only determined based on skin color, but also other natural features such as hair color and eye pupil color.
The results of this test are usually categorized into four seasonal colors that suit us best, starting from spring, summer, autumn, to winter.

How to Find Out Personal Color

There are several easy ways you can find out your personal color without having to go to a professional. Even though the results won’t be as accurate as if we went to an expert, at least we can know whether our skin is a warm tone or a cool tone, so we can experiment with existing seasonal colors.

1. Test with clothing color
You can find out whether your skin is a warm tone or a cool tone by wearing a clean white and bone white shirt. If wearing a clean white shirt makes your skin look bright, then your undertone is a cool tone.
On the other hand, if you look brighter in a bone white shirt, then your undertones are warm tones. Very easy, right, Beauties?
2. Test with Lipstick Color
Try applying cool pink and warm peach lipstick to your lips. If pink lipstick blends well with your skin and makes it look naturally bright, then your skin is a cool tone.
Vice versa, if peach lipstick makes you look brighter and shinier, then your undertones are warm tones.
3. Test with Jewelry Color
Apart from the two methods above, Beauties can also find out your undertones through the jewelry you wear. If your skin looks clean and bright with silver jewelry, then you have a cool tone.
On the other hand, if gold jewelry makes your skin look bright, then your undertones are warm tones.
4. Experiment with Seasonal Colors
So, if Beauties already know your skin undertone, you can try experimenting with existing season colors. For those with warm tones, try applying spring and autumn colors to your makeup and clothes.
Likewise, for those with cool tones, you can experiment with winter and summer colors in the makeup and clothes you wear. That way, Beauties can see what seasonal color is most suitable for your character.
