  • Cool Skin Tones – People can determine their skin tones by checking their veins. Cool skin tones feature blue veins, which highlight blue undertones. Cool undertones pair best with platinum, palladium and silver metals. Cool tones look good in black, bright white, ivory and off-whites. Cool skin tones generally have light color eyes, such as gray, blue or green and hair color encompasses brown, blond or black, with more ash, silver or violet undertones. Cool tones also turn pink or burn in the sun. Cool skin tones look excellent in green, blue, purple, pink, magenta, pink and blue-based reds.
  • Warm Skin Tones – Veins appear green with warm skin tones. This is because yellow skin tones mix with blue veins and turn them a greenish color. Warm undertones compliment gold jewelry, which blends well with yellow undertones. Warmer skin tones compliment tan and brown shades. Warm tones feature amber, brown or hazel eyes and strawberry blonde, black, brown or red hair, with undertones in gold, orange, red or yellow. Warmer skin tones generally soak up the sunrays, turning a golden brown color. Warm tones look excellent in brown, yellow, orange, yellow-green, warm red and ivory.

Cool skin tones look excellent with the following colors of wholesale sunglasses: blue, pink, purple, grey, tortoise, green, silver and black. It's best for cool tones to gravitate more towards blue-based sunglasses.

Warm skin tones compliment gold, orange, brown, tan, olive, red, yellow and ivory. Yellow-based hues pair beautifully with warmer, golden skin tones.
