So how does a person find out whether their skin tone is warm or cool? Well, the easiest way to do so is to use gold and silver jewelry to figure out your skin tone. Place both pieces of jewelry and check which of them is more prominent.
If it is gold jewelry that stands out, then your skin tone is warm and if it is the silver jewelry that is more prominent, then your skin tone falls in the cool category. Another method is to check the color of your veins. If it has a greenish tinge, then you have a warm skin tone and if you have a bluish tinge to it, then your skin tone is cool.
