When it comes to applying makeup that flatters you, one of the best things you can do is use your skin tone (and undertone!) as a guide. For example, if you have a warm skin tone, instead of slapping on any color you’re drawn to, finding eye shadow and lipstick colors for warm skin tones can make a big difference. And that’s what we’re focusing on today. Keep reading to learn how to pick the best makeup for warm skin tones, including warm undertone foundation. But first, let’s cover how to tell if your skin is warm-toned in the first place…
Before we get to actually applying makeup for warm skin tones, let’s make sure you actually know what your undertones are! To see if you have a warm skin tone, take a peek at your wrists. If your veins appear on the green side, then you have a warm undertone. You can also tell if you have a warm undertone if gold jewelry looks better on you than silver. Those with warm skin tones will notice hints of yellow, peach, or gold in their skin as well.
And now for the main event! Follow our makeup tips for warm undertones for a face-flattering makeup look. It’s time to step up your makeup game!
A gorgeous makeup look starts with a flawless base—meaning it’s important to pick a warm undertone foundation and concealer. Ideally, your perfect foundation and concealer picks will have a yellow undertone as opposed to a pink one. Luckily, you don’t have to make an uneducated guess when it comes to shopping for these products. The L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Super Blendable Makeup and L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Super-Blendable Multi-Use Concealer come in a variety of shades in varying tones, including warm. Make sure to blend, blend, blend for a seamless finish.
All that glitters is gold—literally. If you have a warm skin tone, stick to warm eye shadow shades, like bronze, gold, or rust. Try the L’Oréal Paris Brilliant Eyes Shimmer Liquid Eye Shadow Makeup in Bronze Light or L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Matte Chill. Consider creating a bronze smoky eye for the perfect nighttime makeup look, and use the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Quads in Army Brat to get the look.
You’ll notice a theme with these makeup tips: Warm shades will look best on warm skin tones. And that’s certainly the case when it comes to lipstick colors for warm skin tones. Look for a warm lipstick in a purple shade for a pretty pop of color. Try the L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature Matte Lip Stain in I Rebel. Exfoliate your lips first to help get rid of any flakiness, then apply a lip primer to help create a smooth canvas for your lipstick application.
Create a glowing complexion by applying a little warm highlighter to your face. For a sheer highlight, sweep the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator in Golden all over your face. For a more intense glow, squeeze a couple of drops of the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glow Amour Glow Boosting Drops in Golden Hour into your foundation before applying. You can also dust the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Shimmerista Highlighting Powder in Sunlight onto your face and collarbone.
Blush has the ability to perk up any complexion—so don’t skip out on using it! Look for shades on the warm side, like the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Blush in Bare Honey or Barely Blushing. Swirl a fluffy makeup brush into the blush and apply it to the apples of your cheeks for a natural-looking flush.
