Which Red Flatters Your Skin Tone?
How to find the right shade—from raspberry to tomato—for your complexion.
Start With Your Skin’s Undertone
First, determine whether your skin's undertone is warm or cool. There are two easy way to decide that: See whether you look better in silver or gold jewelry, or whether you look better in pure white or in ivory.
- If silver jewelry—or, say, a bright white T-shirt—is more flattering, your skin’s undertone is cool.
- If gold jewelry complements your complexion, your skin’s undertone is warm, which means ivory likely looks better on it than white.
