    Cool undertones. Pink is cool, yellow is warm when it comes to painting/makeup (except at MAC for some weird reason, MAC has it reversed, which makes no sense). You definitely look like you have pink undertones from your pics imo. I’m not sure what “season” you are…?

    @mandigrl04:  Well idk about the season thing, lol, but I have very very pink undertones and yellow-green eyes. I find that pinks and bronze/gold colours are flattering on my skin and bring out my eyes. I actually used pink eyeshadow on my wedding day (which actually looked really natural on my skin lol)

    Perhaps go to a makeup counter and ask them to do a look for you that would look nice with your coloring? If you like what they do, use that as inspiration!

    @mandigrl04:  Aw, thanks! πŸ™‚

    To be fair… it might be hard to tell your actual complexion from the photos. From the pics it just looks to me like you have cool undertones.

    Maybe just experiment by yourself in Sephora lol? Or go to another makeup place? 

    I hope you figure it all out lol!

    I agree that you have pink undertones.  But I also don’t think you need to live hard and fast by any particular makeup rule.  Did you like the colors that the people at Sephora picked out for you?  Just go with what looks good on you, regardless of whatever supposed “tone” the colors are. πŸ™‚

    You might be a spring or a summer…  All I know if you are definitely not a winter.  I can’t decide if you have warm or cool undertones. I would say cool, but usually people with freckles are warm.  Green eyes and light to medium brown hair usually lines up with spring.  To tell if you are warm or cool, do you look better in gold (warm) or silver (cool).  Did you do the vein test? blue (cool) green (warm).  Do you look better in pure white (cool) or off-white (warm).

    In the first pic, your skin looks pinkish so I’d say it’s cool, but in the second photo it looks a bit warm.  In the last pic, your skin looks like mine and I’m neutral.  That doesn’t help right? lol  It’s really hard to tell from the photos. 

    Like someone else suggested, wear what you know looks good on you or try a different makeup counter to get another opinion.  I’ve learned what looks good with my skin mostly by experimenting on my own.

    In the first photo, you look pink, but in the other two, peach. I’d go to a MAC counter and buy $60 bucks worth of makeup to get the free application. They will explain to you everything and give you a diagram of how to apply your makeup. (Best to make an appointment.)

    PS, I have olive-toned skin, but my skin is medium-light. That makes buying foundation really hard, because most makeup companies assume you only have olive skin if you have darker skin. Lies, I tell you. Pink and yellow foundations make me look ridiculous.

    If I had to guess based upon your pics, I think you’re a spring and would look best in warm, clear, bright shades.  It’s been a number of years since I’ve had my face in a “Color Me Beautiful” book, but below is my best recollection of the season descriptions.

    Spring = Warm, Clear, Bright colors
    Summer = Cool, Muted, Soft colors
    Fall = Warm, Muted, Deep colors
    Winter = Cool, Clear, Bright colors

    @yearns4god:  Problem with Bare Escentuals, which I wear and love, is that it does not photograph well. The amount of sunscreen in the foundation makes it look white on film, so wear it on a normal day, but not your wedding day.
