Finding Your Skin’s Undertones and How it Helps

If you have ever tried to wear something and almost immediately realized that it didn’t look all that great on you, you may have found something that so many of us have found before you: not all colors and shades look good on all people. There is a reason for this – it has to do with both the colors of your skin and the undertones of your skin as well.

You might have noticed this before – for example, many people don’t like to wear pink because it looks like it makes their faces pinker than before – or maybe they don’t like to wear yellow because it makes them look sallow.

All of this has to do with the undertones of your skin.

What Are the Undertones?

Undertones are simple and easy to remember because we already know many of the colors – but there could be surprising. They are as follows:

  • Cool(pink, red or bluish undertones)
  • Warm(yellow, peachy, golden undertones)
  • Neutral(a mixture of warm and cool undertones)

Remember that your undertones can be anything – pale girls can be warm toned and darker women can be cool toned.

So how do you figure out what the undertones are?

Check Your Veins for Undertones

Look at the veins on your wrist – you should see that they are blue or green. If you have a more bluish color to your veins, you are probably cool toned. If they are greenish, you are warm toned. Your veins aren’t actually this color – that is just how they look through your skin.

Some people have a neutral skin tone, which is luckily what most companies build make-up for.

Why Knowing Your Skin Tone is So Important

Knowing your skin tone is important for many things. First, it will help you determine which jewelry to wear. Girls who have cool undertones look better with silver jewelry, whereas warm toned people look better in gold jewelry.

Knowing your undertones can also help when choosing what color to put in your hair. People with cool toned skin look better with blue, silver, violet, or ash toned hairs. Warmer toned people look better with strawberry, blonde, red, brown, or black hair.

Of course, knowing your skin tone also helps you to better understanding which colors look the best on you.

Insider Packing Tips for Summer Vacations

There are a ton of insider tips and tricks when it comes to packing for vacation. With a few days to go before your big trip, you want to get yourself organized and make a list of what you might need. However, even if you are prepared for your trip, you might find that you are lacking some of the most important items on your trip.

We’ll break down how to pack so that doesn’t happen. Here is our plan:

Pre-Packing

The first thing you want to do is come up with a list of what you think you will need when you travel. One way to do this is to get ready in the morning and with each step you take, write down what you will need for the entire time. You want to think about things you’ve forgotten in the past as well. Plan for everything, and then as the trip gets closer, you can cut back as you need.

By prepacking, you are also ensuring that your clothing is ready to go – you don’t have to launder anything at the last minute.

If you tend to over pack, you might want to consider getting either vacuum travel bags or bigger luggage, depending on what is possible for your vacation.

What to Bring

Remember that comfort is important when you are traveling, so put a lot of thought into what you will wear. Think about wrinkles both inside of your back and on your journey. You’ll probably be cold as you travel, but if you are going someplace warm, you don’t want to be stuck with only warm clothing. This is why layers are your friend. Always bring a lightweight scarf wherever you go. This can be used in so many different situations. Maybe you want a cover when you are traveling. Maybe you will want something to cover your shoulders when you are in a tank top. A great scarf can be used as an accessory in so many different ways – from a belt to a wrap.

Also remember that you probably won’t need heels, wherever you go. Bring a nice pair of flats that you can wear on the go and call it a day.

When it comes to colors, pick a color scheme that will work for you so that you can match your accessories, bags, and everything else to it.

Where are you planning to go on your next trip?

What to Wear on a Date

What should you wear when you go on a date? This is a question that we see quite often because it is important. What you wear on your date will dictate how you feel about yourself while you are there and how your date feels about you. When you get dressed, you have to think about the impression that you will make.

Here are some serious tips to make a seriously good impression:

First Date Fabulous

First dates are simultaneously the best and the worst. You want to show off your personality and highlight yourself in the right way. By taking the time to look at your wardrobe, you will be putting your best foot forward. Here are some of your first date outfit essentials: a great dress that isn’t too short, a jacket that will keep you warm if the night goes long, and fantastic accessories that will draw the eye to your face.

Ready For Steady

Are you ready for that commitment? When you are settling down and you want someone to take the chance on you, you might start to dress just a little differently. You can wear a slinky black dress to gather the attention, killer heels to amp up the volume, and just a touch of perfume so that your scent lingers long after you are gone.

Long Term Relationship

Have you been going with your cutie for some time and you want to keep the heat turned up – or you just want to make him or her proud that you are theirs? Whether you have been dating for a few months or a few years, you still want them to think you are attractive. While sweatpants and their t-shirt might be a regular part of your wardrobe, there are some other things to consider as well.

You can be comfortable, so wear denim and a great top that still shows off your curves or a dress that is just spicy enough to leave them wanting more.

No matter where you are in your relationship, it is important to note that what you wear can dictate quite a few things – from how close you are going to get to how you make that special someone feel. You don’t have to dress up every day if you don’t want to, but making a move to look nice a few times a week will keep that someone feeling special.
