Hello, Nicola ❤️Glad that this post is helpful!
So sorry for the late checking! I couldn’t find how to reply to your post so I just leave another comment 🙏

If you want to know about cool or warm, it is about yellow tone base (warm)or blue tone base(cool). If you are more blue tone skin, will looks good with magenta, blue-green silver colours. If you are more of a yellow base you’ll look good with orange, gold-tone colours!

Also, simply you can prepare 1 silver jewellery and gold jewellery and try on🧚‍♀️
The one more suitable for you will tell you which tone you are 😉

To find out the best colour for you, recommend to try on many colours and see which colours look good on you :) For example, you can just try at your room stand in front of the mirror with proper light, bring some colourful clothes and put in front of you see which colour looks good on you.

Also can try lip colours! For this, you can try to visit a cosmetic shop and can ask for a lip colour recommendation. The colours will be the best colour for you 😆

And another tip for styling is if you found some of your favourite colour is not matching well with you, don’t be sad you can still wear them just far from the face. Such as bottoms, socks, bag, belt, hair tie, shoes.

Hope you can found your best colour 🧚‍♀️💕

Hi! Thank you so much for this post!! This is much more helpful than any of the American or British color analysis websites I’ve found. This one actually made sense to me. So, although I am caucasian, I still used your quiz. I selected brown for hair even though mine is dark blonde because that’s closer to brown than it is to black.

My main question is: I had 3 warm and 3 cool answers. (The style one I didn’t really know how to answer). So I think I am neutral. Many American posts say “if you’re neutral you can wear any color” but I don’t find that that’s the case. Can you advise me what to do if I answered Warm AND Cool? And again, thank you for your post!
