Your skin tone does not refer to the color complexion of your skin (i.e light, medium, dark) or your skin type. Skin tone is determined by the amount of melanin or pigment which is present on your skin and does not change from sun exposure or any skin conditions like acne etc. So when a person’s skin become pale in the winter and rich brown in the summer than their skin tone remains the same. Knowing your skin tone is very helpful for your Makeup&Fashion life as you can easily choose your hair color, clothes color, foundation etc according to your skin tone.
THERE ARE BASICALLY THREE TIMES OF SKIN TONE:
Cool: Hints of bluish, pink or a ruddy complexion (Colors belong to winters )
Warm: Skin looks yellow, peachy or golden (Colors belong to summers)
Neutral: No overtones of pink or yellow skin and it looks more with its natural color.
