I know this sounds weird, but do I have warm or cool skin?

Ok I know this sounds weird and the photo looks funny, but could anyone tell me if I have a warm or cool skin tone. They say that if your veins look green, you're warm, and if they look blue, you're cool.

I have blue AND green veins :?

So what am I ???:(

    based on that pic, i'd say cool.

    but i'd have to see you in person to be sure.

    Thanks for replying rouquinne :)

    I guess that's the way my coloring is with foundation and blush, without it my cheeks are kind of blotchy and the rest of my face is more yellowish. That's probably why I can't find out what I am.

    the tip i've always seen.. is to try on both an all white t-shirt and an ivory shirt.. whichever color looks better on you determines your skin tone..

    if i remember correctly, cool tones look best in ivory, and warm tones in white..

    hope that helps some :)

    From the pic I chose warm because it looks like you might have pink undertones. It's hard to say because there are color variations from monitor to monitor.

    You have pinkish undertones not unlike mine. I was told that my skin is cool toned due to the pink

    Hehheh.

    I'm told that, but I still wear some warm colors as eyeshadows, such as greens. I usually use a neutral blush, if any. My face is pink enough without using some pink toned blush. :roll:

    I think some warm/cool mixing is OK, it just depends on the person.

    actually, if you wear colours in the opposite family, it creates very striking combinations.

    the current Avon campaign book shows Salma Hayek - definitely a warm - wearing a cool, deep red lipstick that looks AMAZING on her!

    :D

    and goldy, warm looks best in ivory, cool in white.

    The best tip I've heard is to look at the color of your skin at your elbow or ankle--for some reason, it's easier to tell if the skin tone is more yellow or pink there. (I think because there's "extra" skin there to allow for the joint to straighten, so at the crease, you can see "concentrated" skin color.)
