Choosing Eyeshadows, Blush and Lip Color for Your Undertone

Unlike foundations and powders, the color tone criteria isn't strict here. The choice just depends on how dramatic you want your final makeup to look.

Colors in your natural undertone look natural against your skin. You may even feel that your makeup has a barely-there effect. The opposite undertone from your skin tone gives a more dramatic effect and will look more intense.
