How to find your skin tone
Skin tones are split into three main categories – Light, medium and deep. In the global context, Indians, largely, have medium skin tone irrespective of the region we hail from. Light skin tone typically is reflective of Caucasians while deep is for Africans.
Medium skin tone can be further sub-divided into beige, tan, honey and more such colors. Refer to the infographic on this FAQ and find the skin tone closest to yours.

Skin undertone refers to the color that comes through the skin from underneath its surface. Skin undertones are of three types – warm, neutral and cool. To identify your skin undertone, here are a few tests you can try:
1. The wrist test: Check the color of your veins. If they are purple or blue in color then you are cool. If they are green or olive in color, you are warm. But if you are unable to determine the dominant color, you are neutral.
2. The sun test: If your skin turns red when you are out in the sun, you have cool undertone. Conversely, if you get tanned easily in the sun you have warm undertone.
