How to find your undertone:
-Teint Idole is organized by intensity (1,2,3,4 & 5) and by undertone (C, N, W).
-Cool (C) undertones: Bare skin has a rosy undertone and usually burns easily in the sun. Veins appear blue.
-Neutral (N) undertones: Bare skin has a combination of both cool and warm undertones—not too pink or too golden. Veins appear a mix of green and blue.
-Warm (W) undertones: Bare skin appears golden/yellow and tans easily in the sun. Olive skin can sometimes skew warm as well for those with a slightly more gold hue. Veins appear green.
