“Know­ing your un­der­tone is enor­mously help­ful when you’re try­ing to fig­ure out which lip­sticks look best on you,” says Marie Mckeever, head of train­ing at Clar­ins. A quick way to iden­tify your skin’s un­der­tone is to look at the veins on your wrist—if they’re blue, you’ve got pink un­der­tones. If veins ap­pear greener, you have yel­low un­der­tones. And if they ap­pear both blue and green, you’re the lucky owner of a neu­tral tone and can carry any colour.

Mckeever ad­vises that those with yel­low un­der­tones should stick to shades of red and or­ange, while those with pink un­der­tones should opt for lip­sticks with blue or pur­ple in them. If you’re still not sure, check whether gold or sil­ver jew­ellery looks bet­ter against your skin; gold will look great on pink skin, while sil­ver will en­hance yel­low skin.
