Know your undertone

COOL UNDERTONES are for those with pinkish or soft red complexions. Your skin usually burns first and may take a long time to achieve a tan, if any. If you look at the veins on the underside of your arm, they will appear blue.

NEUTRAL UNDERTONES are for those with soft beige, a tinge of yellow or pink complexions. Your skin will gradually tan. If you look at the underside of your arm, your veins will appear green and blue.

WARM UNDERTONES are for those with a yellow or peachy complexion. Your skin tans well and usually does not burn. If you look at the underside of your arm, your veins may have a slight greenish tint if you can even see them at all.

OLIVE UNDERTONES are for those with golden olive complexions. Your skin tans easily. If you look at the underside of your arm, your veins appear greenish in color and your complexion is more golden olive. You have probably found that many foundation colors end up looking ashy or pink on your skin.

 

How to care for your brushes

Caring for your Virginia Olsen Beauty Tools is easy:

Dampen bristles with warm water, and lather gently with mild soap or shampoo.

Protect your brush by holding the bristles down – water in the ferrule may damage your brush.

Rinse under warm running water until the water runs clear and soap is thoroughly removed.

Blot the brush well with a clean old towel and gently reshape.

Allow your brush to air-dry flat.
