A skin tone and an undertone are not the same, a skin tone can change with time, during summers your skin tone can get tanned or get a darker hue depending on the exposure to sun, and in winters your skin tone can go a shade lighter, while an undertone will remain the same always, no matter what season or what part of the day. So basically an undertone is the color from underneath the surface of your skin that affects your overall hue. There are three undertones – cool, warm, and neutral. A cool undertone is generally associated with skin that has hints of blue, pink, or a ruddy red complexion. A warm undertone is more peachy, golden, or yellow. Getting your undertone right is the key to a flawless makeup.
