Eyeglasses for Light Skin with Warm Undertones

If you have paler, peachy skin with green or yellow undertones, this is you. The best choice for this skin tone is either strong colors or warm neutrals. Blues or lighter colors are a no go unless your goal is to look washed out.

Recommendation: Prism in chestnut

Eyeglasses for Light Skin with Cool Undertones

A pink or blue cast to lighter skin tones would land you in this category. Stay away from strong yellows and green hues, but complement your complexion with blues, pinks and cool neutrals.

Recommendation: Symmetry in ocean tide

Eyeglasses for Medium Skin with Warm Undertones

Go for complementing neutrals and earthy tones. These will complement your medium skin with green or yellow undertones. Bypass the jewel tones and stick to a warm brown or tortoise frame.

Recommendation: Lucid in warm tortoise 

Eyeglasses for Medium Skin with Cool Undertones

Strong blacks and dark grays are a safe bet if you don’t want to go for a blue, purple, or blue-toned red, which would also work. This medium skin has pink or blue undertones too, and looks amazing with jewel colors.

Recommendation: Shade in striped granite

Eyeglasses for Deep Skin with Warm Undertones

A golden cast to a deep skin tone is a good fit for this category. Brown, green and gold work well. Any tortoise should be your best friend, so don’t be scared of these either.

Recommendation: Sequence in striped amber 

Eyeglasses for Deep Skin with Cool Undertones

Any smokey colors or blue-based shades go perfectly with this skin one. The blue and pink undertones match beautifully with blacks or purples, so stick to these for a real fashion friendly frame.

Recommendation: Eloquence in marbled hazel 


Handy Hint: If you’re still unsure as to the undertone of your skin, don’t worry. An easier question to answer is which jewelry do you suit-gold or silver? If you suit gold, you have a warm undertone and if you suit silver you have a cool undertone. It’s easier, right?
