The Best Summer Shades For Your Skin Tone

Looking for a bright shiny mane this summer but need some advice on which shade to lean towards? Matching your hair color to your skin tone is everything, and can make or break your look.

To get started in determining your complexion, look at the veins on your wrist. If they're a blue-ish tint, you have a cool skin tone. If they give off a green-ish tint, your skin tone is warm. With that in mind, are you ready to choose your new hair color?!

Cool tones

Rundown: Cool skin tones looks stunning in cool shades of blonde in the summer. Colors like platinum or ashy blondes compliment the pink undertones in the skin, and look great as an all-over color or highlights around the face - flattering your complexion. Steer clear of golden, brassy shades of blonde with too much warmth as it can dull your skin tone.

Try not to venture into cool shades of blonde like ash or platinum, as it can clash with your skin tone - making you look washed out.

Best makeup colors: Warmer tones, coppers and peaches are perfect for warm skin tones. Try Sorme Mineral Botanicals Blush in Affinity, Sorme Lip Thick Plumping  Lip Gloss in Petticoat, Sorme Long Lasting Eye Shadow in Buff.
