            This is very informative, geeko But how do I determine which skin tone I belong to?

              think along the lines of the 4 seasons

              winter = Porcelain pale
              Autumn = a bit of olive tone inside...

              the next two colours are pretty tricky..Summer and spring looks similar...but they are not

              Summer = golden beige
              Spring = fair, lumionus and almost transparent complexion

              hehe..pls decide which category u belong too :p i took a grooming class in my sec sch days..and the trainer classied me as spring

                              i actually have the color Me Beautiful book. hand me down from my mom.

                              easy peasey way to figure out if you're warm or cool - place a silver and gold cloth/paper against the insides of your wrist and look in the mirror to see which color complements you more.

                              autumns are easy to tell - greens, rust, orange, corol, browns set off your skin well. the other 3 cannot take those colors at all.

                              winter - think royal colors. royal blue, rich burgundy, peacock green, true black, start white. also the icy pastels.

                              i'm winter thru and thru. :D

                              spring and summer are a bit tricky.
                              spring is almost a 'paler' version of winter.
                              summer has the 'bright' pastels.

                              if still can't tell, use a blue based red and a warm red on your lips to compare.
