Color Analysis Quiz - Step 2: Light - Warm or Cool Undertones

Color Analysis Quiz Step 2

You selected LIGHT. This means you have light eyes, hair AND skin.

When you are light, in Your Color Style, there are only 2 steps to learning your color type (aka your most flattering colors). The next step is to determine if you have warm undertones or cool undertones. 

You may already know your undertones. If so, select your answer below. If not, scroll down a bit for more information to help you learn your undertones.

Step 2: Are you warm or cool?

Watch this video that explains warm undertones, cool undertones, skin tone and olive skin. 


IMPORTANT: Your undertones don't change. If you have grey hair and you know you had warm undertones before going grey, you are still WARM.


WARM Undertones Explained

Bright Warm Light

You likely have warm undertones if you have:
  • peach or golden skin
  • warm grey hair
  • if you have grey hair and you used to have red hair, you likely have warm undertones



COOL Undertones Explained

You likely have cool undertones if you have:

  • pink or pink-grey skin
  • porcelain skin
  • olive skin tone
  • grey-blue, blue or grey-green eyes (if you have or had red hair, then you may have warm undertones)


Still not sure?

If you do not see a scenario that relates to you and you have watched the video, post in the comments what your combination of hair, skin and eyes are, so that I can make sure to cover it in this quiz.

If you feel that you are close but you're undecided between a couple of color types, watch the webinar replay: Discover Your Best Colors in 30 Minutes

  • I now have gray hair. Originally ash blonde. My eyes are an olive color. I know i don’t look good in a cobalt blue or yellow. Not sure if I am warm or cool. Careful of the sun now but I used to tan a golden color. HELP!
    Your Color Style replied:
    You sound like you have cool undertones based on the ash blonde description. Olive eyes can be warm and golden or more grey. I’m guessing yours are more greyish. Cobalt blue and yellow will be too bright on you. I would look at Soft Cool and Medium

  • I can’t figure out if I have a cool or warm undertone. People have told me both and I always thought I had a cool undertone but I’m not sure anymore
    I have blue/green eyes with a tiny amount of green-brown flecks in them, my hair was golden blonde when little but now (in my 20s) it’s dark blonde/light brown. My skin is very light, gets burned easily, almost never tans, I get small freckles in the sun all over my body and usally have rosy/pink cheeks
    Your Color Style replied:
    You sound like you might be bright warm light. Light individuals can appear neutral but ultimately look better in peaches and cream vs magenta.JenSent from my iPhone

  • The scenarios don’t relate to me. I have medium natural brown hair, light skin with neutral undertones, and blue/green eyes.
    Your Color Style replied:
    You sound like you would be medium.

    Then, possibly cool. Neutral is not an undertone. You may feel and look neutral but you still have warm or cool undertones. My guess would be to look at cool and medium and then likely bright if your eyes are bright
