Are you a Sun, Earth or an Ocean??

A few days ago, I posted that I was an Earth and explained what that was.

I was asked how you could find out what you were.  So here you go!!

Are you a sun?
You’ll look great in these warm, sunny shades if 

  • You tend to tan easily and your skin tone is peachy, beige, yellow- or golden-olive, or rich, warm brown.
  • Your hair is golden blonde, red, or light to dark brown with warm undertones—and tends to take on a red or gold cast if you spend a lot of time in the sun.
  • You have dark blue, golden hazel, green, or rich brown eyes. If you look closely at your irises, you may notice golden, amber, or yellow flecks.
  • You look better wearing a cream-colored shirt than you do wearing a pure white shirt.
Your perfect makeup look
A wash of sunset-inspired shades on your eyes complements your skin’s warm undertones, according to Warren. Start by applying a copper shadow all over your lids, then blend a golden beige shade above it to the brows. Apply a dark peach blush along your cheekbones to bring out your skin’s golden hue, then slick on a sheer, brown lip gloss. (It’s more flattering to your skin than cool pinks or berries.)

Are you an ocean?
You’ll look great in these cool, sea-inspired shades if
  • Your skin tone is one of the following: fair and pinkish, rosy beige, olive with a greenish cast, or brown to dark brown. If you’re fair, you tend to burn easily.
  • Your hair is ashy blonde, silver, white, light to dark brown, or black. Light shades may have ashy or sandy highlights; dark shades may have hints of cool tones.
  • Your eyes are gray, blue, aqua, gray-green, reddish brown, or very dark brown (almost black). If you look closely at your irises, you may notice gray or black flecks.
  • White clothes look better on you than cream clothes.
Your perfect makeup look
Cool lavender eyeliner and a soft blue shadow make your eyes pop. Trace your lower lash lines with lavender liner, then dust a soft blue shadow over your lids. (For a night out, top your liner with a matching shadow.) Blend a pink blush over the apples of your cheeks, and finish with a pink gloss that has a hint of lilac. “It complements your skin’s cool undertones,” says Warren.
