Choosing the right colour to match your skin, hair and undertones accentuates your natural features. Here are some tips to detect your undertones and a list of K-stars who have warm or cool undertones.

1. Check your veins

The colour of the veins on the inside of your wrists can determine whether you have cool or warm undertones, experts explained. If they appear to be more bluish, you likely have cool undertones. If there is a tint of green in your veins, it implies you have warm undertones.

2. Gold or Silver

Try on both gold and silver jewelry. Typically, people who have warm undertones look better with gold, while silver better suits cool-toned people.

3. Burn or tan

Cool-toned people often have fair complexions, with skin that burns during sunny times, turning pink first. For people with warm tones, however, their skin typically turns golden brown and becomes tanned.

4. K-stars with different skin tones

Lee Hyo-ri, IU, Sulli, Kim Tae-hee and Park Shin-hye have warm undertones and colors including gold, peach, orange, yellow, brown, green, coral and red violet make their golden undertones more radiant.

Cool blue undertones pair nicely with fresh greens, sea shades, crisp white, cool grays, blacks, berry reds, hot pink and frosty purples. K-stars including Lee Young-ae, Son Ye-jin, Kim Yu-na, Kim Hye-soo and Jun Ji-hyun fall into this category.
