The easiest way to determine if you have a yellow-toned skin is through the vein test and jewelry test. Check out the vein on the insides of your arm, if it's green you are categorically under the "warm tone" that which yellow skin belongs to. This is also referred to as the "Autumn Tone". If you have a blue vein then you fall under the "cool tone" or white and fair skin. Using the jewelry test, if a gold accessory accentuates your skin, then you have a "warm tone" but if silver jewelry flatters you better then you fall under the "cool tone".

Not able to get the right clothes that match my skin tone?

I have a competition coming of Men's physique, for that I need to wear shorts, can't get the right selection for shorts.


For the competition, pick a color that does not stand out too much (bright yellow or green); or it will divert the attention of the judges off you. Pick any solid color (aqua blue, for example). A good choice can be a color that makes your body color stand out and matches the hair color, if the latter is possible. For example, a competitor with pale skin and blond hair may wear black shorts. A competitor with pale skin and brown hair may wear brown shorts that match his hair color. This will make the judges pay attention to you but not get distracted from your body.
