    Default Cool vs Warm Tone?

    I know nothing really about makeup and I've never figured this out, I try and follow the checklists like silver/gold, blue/green veins but I always seem to fall on both sides of the fence, so I figured someone here must know whether I have a warm or cool skin tone? I wanna dye my hair and am trying to figure out which color would be best.
    I tried to use photos w/o any makeup (which are actually hard to find) so ignore how retarded they may be.
    Thanks!

    You can be neutural, you know!
    Not every one falls into the Warm/Cool "thingy".

    Have you tried trying wigs on? Or trying some hair pieces in the mirror at your local beauty suppliers?

    My opinion is that you look from the photos as if ashy (i.e. little or no red) would suit you, but I'm very opinionated & only right 50% of the time!!! (on a good day...)

    I also feel the need to say that I think you look fab in your pictures (ok, 'cept maybe the last one....)!

    Good luck with the hair!

    thanks for the tips. i actually cheated and just went to one of those makeup counter thingys in department stores, asked them and then ran off before they could try and sell me their stuff!
    you were right though, ash is right for me, red is a big no no apparently

    LOL! Not a bad guess, but eventho I'm a not the same colouring as you I'm a "not red" person either!
    Well done with the dept store! I never have the nerve to do that.
    Well, my turn to go to my hairdressers. I've not had it cut for ages & I'm going to book a colour appointment too. I've always done it myself in the past..... gulp.....
