UNDERTONES FOR ASIANS: HOW TO TELL IF YOUR SKINTONE IS COOL, WARM, NEUTRAL, OR OLIVE 

at Of Faces and Fingers: the joys of makeup and nail polish

"A large proportion of Asians have surface yellowness in their skin. Chinese people, like me, are the most obvious examples, although I've noticed some Indians have surface yellowness too. As a result, people tend to assume that you're warm just because your skin is yellow. However, this is not always the case. ... To say that all Asians are warm-toned because we have yellow skin is to confuse skintone (which is the surface colour of your skin: beige, tan, etc) with undertone (which is whether you are cool, or warm, or neutral), and not to mention a very horrible generalization."


"Instead of thinking of yourself as Warm-or-Cool, I encourage you to think of warmth and coolness as a spectrum. You know. Warm, Warm to Neutral, Neutral, Cool to Neutral, and Cool. And of course there's Olive, ..."


"So even if you're absolutely clueless, based on how you appear in your photographs with your friends, you can get a good idea of how cool or how warm you are. If in general you tend to look pink, you're cool. If in general you tend to look yellow, you're warm. If you tend to be neither, you're neutral. And if you tend to look pink, but notice you have a green tinge to your skin sometimes (especially when compared to others) then you're olive with cool undertones, and if you tend to look yellow, but have a little bit of green, then you're olive with warm undertones. And if you look green sometimes, but equally pink and yellow, you can be olive, with neutral undertones. The more photos you look at, the wider your sample size, and the more accurate your judgement."

Seasonal Color Analysis

"First of all, color analysis is not as simple as Asians having the similar tone of skin color, brown eyes and black hair makes them share their best colors. Even Asians have various tones of skin color, different shades of brown eyes and subtle difference in darkness of hair color. You can’t simply judge best suited colors based on racial groups. If you fit in one of the racial groups such as Asians, Latinos, Africans and Mediterranean, when finding an analyst, you might want to check if a consultant is familiar with these racial groups since some systems leave out these above groups because of the less variations in their hair and eye color."
