Explore Cool Makeup Shade Choices With Chad Hayduk


You've hopefully taken my warm and cool undertones quiz and learned about the basics of color choice selection from Chad Hayduk, Three Custom Color Specialists' makeup artist and co-founder. We've learned all about the warms — and now cools — it's your turn to sparkle in all of your jewel-toned glory.

Cools should feel special, since you account for only 15 percent of the population. So, let's get down to the nitty-gritty and bring it all together with some makeup shades picked by Chad himself, along with some other options I found.

Oh, and I should mention — even though your skin coloring may be light, medium, or dark depending on genetics, sun exposure, and changes in season, you will not change in terms of warmth or coolness. With that said, go to town — and check out my chart when you read more.
