Color Theory: Warm Brown vs Cool Brown

I discuss the difference between warm and cool browns and how to identify them based on undertones. Warm browns are suitable for individuals with warm undertones, while cool browns are better for those with cool undertones. Brown can be created by adding black to orange or by mixing a primary color with a secondary color. By tipping the scales and adding a small amount of another color, the brown can be made cooler or warmer. Adding blue cools the brown, while adding yellow warms it up. The same can be done with red and blue. Adding white lightens the brown, while adding black darkens it. It is important to consider undertones when choosing a shade of brown, and color fans and quizzes can help determine undertones.
