What does my skin tone have to do with my sunglasses?

Choose Frames That Complement Your Skin Tone, too.

Everyone has different skin tones and colors, too.

There are two basic skin tones, cool (blue) and warm (yellow).

Cool complexions have blue or pink undertones, and warm complexions have that "peaches and cream" healthy glow, or yellow undertones. For example, if you have an olive complexion your skin is cool because it mixes blue and yellow.

Knowing your complexion base can help you choose the right color frame for your face. For example, if you have a cool complexion, yellows and oranges may make you look washed out and sallow, while pinks and reds may make you look vibrant and alive.

Experiment with the colors of your frames and lenses along with the size and shape to choose just the right frame for your face, your coloring, and your style.
