Cool skin tone (Cool) skin tone people’s skin will show a little pink, red or blue tones, look at your wrist blood vessels are blue or purple, you are cool skin tone.
Warm-toned (Warm) skin has a slight yellow, gold or peach tint to it.
Neutral skin tones (Neutral) people do not look pink, red, or blue, nor yellow, gold, or peach, but the veins on their wrists have both blue and green veins.
If you still can’t tell your skin tone, think back to whether you look good in gold jewelry or silver jewelry.

When choosing a foundation, in addition to the color number, another factor to consider is the texture. Everyone’s skin type is different, so the reason why you use the foundation recommended by others is because your skin type is different from others.
Before foundation VS after foundation
The girl with oily skin should choose a foundation that controls oil and holds makeup well, in addition to try to avoid watery single products, which will only make the face look oily and not dry. For girls with dry skin, you can choose a foundation with a more hydrating texture, or even a foundation cream. Girls with combination skin can choose foundations with different effects in different areas to help hold makeup better.
