Pink Skin - Warm or Cool Undertones
We often see cool undertone skin described as pink, but what if you have pink skin but don't feel like you have cool undertones? The color pink ranges from cool blue-based magenta pink to warm yellow based pinks. If you have warm undertones, you will still have pink in your skin but it may be neutral to warm pinks. And if you have cool undertones, you will have neutral to cool pinks. The neutral pinks are the skin tones that can confuse you because we've been told that pink tones in the skin means cool. Not necessarily true.

Thanks so much for this video! I’ve been so confused my whole entire life regarding my undertones because I tend to freckle easily but tend to buy neutral foundation colors. I remember my olive skinned friend saying to me in 8th grade, “your skin tans red!” Which isn’t true but I think it’s just my skin is pink until I’m lightly tanned with freckles. Anyway, I think I still need some help unless freckles tend to lean warm, but at least pink doesn’t always equal cool.

Freckles do not mean warm. And to confuse things even more, neutral foundation is for evening your skin tone but doesn’t necesse arily mean undertone. Take the color analysis quiz <https://yourcolorstyle.com/quiz> and see it helps you find your color type.
