Simple Way to Find Your Skin Undertone – Your Eye Pattern | How To – Color Analysis

No talking hey everyone I’m Carol Brailey of in this video I’m gonna help guide you figure out your skin
undertone based on your eye pattern I’m so excited about rolling out this video
just simply because it represents the first of a series of videos I’m gonna be
rolling out focused on looking at your eye pattern to help determine your best
hair makeup clothing and accessory color so like this video subscribe to my
channel share it so that you receive updates on my channel as these new
videos are rolled out so just a quick recap why do we care about figuring out
our skin undertone and finding out our best colors in general wearing our best
colors helps to make us Sparkle our eyes sparkle our skin appears vibrant refined
lifted and then generally feel fantastic so that’s why wearing your best colors
is so great of the reverse of that is when we wear colors that aren’t and
harmony with us we perhaps may look dull washed out and not feel so great perhaps
we feel dull and washed out figuring out your undertone is just the first step in
a color analysis figure out your undertone will help provide the
foundation to figure out what values and intensity of colors work for you so I
encourage you once you find out your skin undertone to also move forward to
figure out what value light or dark intensity bright or soft colors also
make you Sparkle because every color has three aspects to it an undertone is
really just one the other two aspects are value and intensity so what is skin
undertone skin undertone is the underlying quality to your coloring
where a skin tone can change from season to season
perhaps it even change changes in different lighting skin undertone
actually is driven by what’s internally within us so
McLovin keratin and melanin all feed into what ultimately forms our undertone
and coloring and those characteristics also roll out into our hair eyes and our
skin coloring so that’s why I like to look at eyes so eyes patterns
you really can’t dispute whereas you know colors on skin you can look at my
peachy and my porcelain leads to a bunch of confusion specifically if you don’t
really even know what those definitions are is my hair as she is a warm brown
like if you don’t know what those definitions are can lead to a whole
bunch of confusion also the vein tests are my veins blue green I’ve seen so
much confusion over those other tests with an eye pattern
you really can’t dispute it and let me use this piece of fabric as an example
yo this piece of fabric is striped you
can’t really dispute it well hold on if you’re watching this and I’ve had a
couple cocktails perhaps this doesn’t look striped but
trust me this is straight so really you’re looking at with an eye pattern is
something there or not it’s really factual whereas if you aren’t trained
and say color analysis you’re you’re sort of guessing at at you know skin
coloring perhaps hair coloring etc I’m following along with my notes here so
that I keep on track because I’m a massive creative type and I can really
go off on tangents so so where am I here so that is why I love to use eye
patterns and before I move into the meat of this video which is going through eye
patterns I just want to say thank you so much to everybody who donated their eye
patterns to be in this video because I truly believe every eye is unique and
there’s certain common characteristics to eyes that help guide on color but you
know every eye is unique and it’s truly the window to our soul
one of my favorite movies is by origins I’ll put the name on this screen it
really is a great fictional movie into the specialness of each of our eyes
I also before I move into the meat of this video want to say please watch all
three aspects to this video so I’m going to go through warm cool and neutral
because you know if you tuned into warm and then don’t tune into neutral you may
have ruled yourself to be warm without you know also classifying yourself into
the neutral category so please watch all three steps because if you have patterns
in your eyes that are both warm and cool that means you may have neutral
characteristics to your coloring so please stay tuned to this complete video
I think that’s all I have to say so let’s move into the meat of this video
so there are three pattern categories that you want to check out within your
eye pattern the first pattern category is warm and within this category there
are three patterns to look out for the first pattern I’m gonna walk you through
is starburst so here is one example of a starburst around the pupil here is
another example of a starburst and yet another example it’s not about eye color
here it’s about the pattern so here is a starburst pattern in a very different
color than what we saw earlier and then here is another starburst pattern in a
blue-gray color the second warm category element that you want to look for in
your eye is speckling it can be any color but here’s an example of a
speckling or freckling in orange Brown in the blue area in this particular eye
but it’s again not about eye color it’s about the pattern here is another
example of speckling or freckling and I’m just going to go back to an earlier
photo we had this screen on the screen this person also has speckling freckling
in their eye and the last pattern category that you want to check out to
see if they’re warm elements in your eye is halo so a halo is a circular
structure around the pupil so and it’s always around the pupil here’s one
example of a halo before I move on to the other examples I just also want to
say if you feel like you have a halo only a halo in your eye and feel you
have a warm undertone I want you to ask yourself if your skin feels peachy cream
peachy pink translucent those sort of qualities to your skin because it can be
confused with one of the patterns in I’m going to be covering in the cool section
so just be aware that a halo can easily be confused so if you feel you only have
a halo in your eye and have a warm undertone you typically would again have
clear and warm skin which is like peaches and cream peachy pink and it if
you only have a halo in your eye you typically would not freckle so just be
aware of that here is another halo example and I just
want to open here is another one here is another halo example again it’s not
about eye color this person has a halo that’s quite light
the pupil of their eye and I just want to show you another example of a very
light halo so those are the three patterns within the warm category to
look out for the second category is cool and so you’re gonna want to ask yourself
if there are cool qualities in my eye pattern the first cool element to look
out for is what I call a wheel so it’s almost like lines in the eye running
from the pupil right to the outside of the eye so here’s a great example of a
wheel structure I also just want to go back to an earlier example we saw
another example of a wheel structure is the circling just on the outside of this
eye in almost a white color that illustrates sort of a wheel rim so
that’s another example of a cool wheel structure second cool element to look
out for is what I call flowering it’s almost like the center of a flower where
a wasp or bee nips at so usually this patterning is slightly darker in color
I’ve highlighted it in this particular photo this pictures photo is quite light
but this next one is quite clear so there’s an example of flowering and
here’s another example of flowering to illustrate that it’s not about color the
last cool category element to look out for is what I call smokiness or clouds
picture incense or smoke blowing in the air and looking into it that’s the sort
of patterning you want to look for in the eye so here’s an example of smoky
cloudiness in the eye this particular eye it’s in the blue area here’s another
example of smokey cloudiness in the eye and here
is another example and I just want to go back to this earlier photo this person
also has elements of smokey cloudiness in their eye so that summarizes the cool
category the next category is neutral patterning and this really is just your
eye pattern has a mix of warm and cool pattern elements within it now you may
be neutral warm neutral cool or full neutral and I’m not going to cover it
off in this video it’s actually extremely complicated to get at and
really requires engagement with a color analysis professional to fully refined
but just keep in mind that if your eye pattern has both warm and cool elements
your undertone lightly rests around a neutral undertone range so here’s an
example of a neutral undertone range ISO you see both wheel qualities to this eye
which are cool and the starburst and I also see a freckle in this eye which are
warm so cool through the wheel starburst speckle is warm here’s another example
and I see a starburst speckling in this eye and I also see flowering so the
starburst speckling is warm the flowering is cool here’s a closer look
at this person’s eye and starburst speckling is a little bit more obvious
in this picture and the flowering and then the next example I have is the halo
structure which is warm with both smoky cloudiness which is cool while I have
this one up I just want to go back to this photo this particular person has
the halo with smoky cloudiness as well so halo being warm the smoky cloudiness
being cool and a last example I have on file for a neutral undertone range is a
starburst and I also see a darker orange speckle here with smoky cloudiness which
is cool so there you have it I hope this video has inspired you to look at your
eye pattern and has ultimately helped you to finally figure out what your skin
and her tone is the eye patterns used in this video just offer common
characteristics so your eyes likely will look different from the examples used
because I believe all our eyes are truly truly unique but your eyes will have
those common elements that I’ve highlighted in the previous section to
this video and once again thank you so much to everybody who donated their eyes
really a special gift so please like share subscribe and stay tuned for
future videos featuring your eye patterns


  • pawan Chahal says:

    mam will you tell me my eye colour

  • Ladynipchick2 says:

    Still a bit confused – I have a starburst, wheels AND cloudiness!!

  • Wendy F says:

    I looked at my eyes in a magnifying mirror and I’m still confused. I can’t tell the halo, starburst, or wheel. Is a halo light? Because I have blue eyes and have a ring around pupil and see smokiness and maybe starburst, but is the starburst only around the pupil?

  • Deydey says:

    This is the most confusing way to figure undertones I've ever seen. Fascinating, but confusing for me. Can't see any pattern in my eyes. Maybe it's because I wear glasses?

  • Tracy Ramos says:

    How does central heterochromia affect color analysis?

  • B. Walker says:

    Surely some day it will finally click, but I have bad news, Algebra never clicked for me. I am just lost in all of this. I have wheel and spokes (which you didn't mention, ha!), halo, and bursting with freckles/spots. Maybe soft but not Smokey. Sephora says I have a pink undertone or red they say. Arrgh! Keep me at the back of the class. And don't call on me yet. I am lost. : (

  • Mr. No name! says:

    this was so very helpful thank you… My eyes have like lighting in the sky, kind of like marble or like you would see in a glass lightin ball! I take it that i am cool skin toned. Like on a rainy day! Very helpful

  • moodywitbooty says:

    I'm even more confused after watching this. Can I just send you my eyeball pic? I'm lost.

  • Ally says:

    My eyes are fucking twinkling all I could see is light and my mobile taking picture

  • Muxloe says:

    I’m so confused. My eyes are quite detailed but I don’t recognise any of these patterns in them 😕

  • D. May says:

    I want you to read mine!!! 😍😍😍

  • Little House in the Big Apple says:

    I started watching this because i wanted something totally different than the veins thingy everyone suggests. Every time I go for foundation matching i tell them I think im cool, but they always insist im warm or they give up and say neutral and i fall for it and go home with terrible makeup. At first I'm like… not so sure about this eye thing, but this lady is adorable. But I could almost immediately get the drift of this way of looking at colors! And going by this I should be cool as I had assumed!

  • Robby says:

    I think when you were talking about the Halo pattern you said the Halo was around the pupil but I think you meant to say around the iris, right? Or am I wrong?

  • nani the fk says:

    My eyes are very dark brown and I can't see anything in it?

  • Ken Rowland says:

    honey…..YOU look dull and washed out🤔 suggestion: Put on a little makeup before doing a video. 😕

  • Heba Gadallah says:

    This is one of my absolute favourite videos on YouTube. I Have loved eye patterns , shapes, sets and colours since my childhood.

  • silvia judit santoro says:

    i love so much your explication., i doubt about if i am neutral o cool undertone, i love your video.thanks yor

  • mikaquinn30 says:

    Is it possible to have Starburst, speckling, cloudiness and wheel structure at the same time? I think I can see all of these in my eyes?

  • Chuck 123 says:

    Warm tone..

  • Elizabeth Lilly says:

    I have some gold on the bottom of my eye

  • Tina Vacker-Tulip says:

    I have wheel patterns and a very few freckles on my eyes what season am I?  Please answer!

  • Sky Wolf says:

    what if you was born with no irus? and have inlarge pupul? but confused on being either cool or nuteral.

  • Sugar N Spice says:


  • V甘いもの says:

    My eyes are a dark brown that looks black indoors. But when I go outside it’s more of a chocolate color and I can see a very vague wheel in pictures I most definitely have cool undertones.

  • no no says:

    I only have speckling in one eye?? A little but of halo but only when you shine a light on it so you can see the full iris. I thought I was neutral but I went into a makeup shop where someone looked at my wrist and was like "well it looks blue so I think you're cool toned." But I just didn't think that was satisfactory because i tried looking up pictures of warm toned wrists and they all looked kind of blue to me? Also my skin looks yellow next to a piece of paper (I'm super pale btw I don't tan because it makes your skin age faster and all that and I like how it looks) and cool colors dont look nearly as good on me as warm colors except yellow. I think I'm neutral but I just learned about olive undertone which is confusing. HELP

  • Christina D says:

    Sadly, the box graphic of what you are saying (forget what that's called) covers some of the eyes completely! That box should be dropped down an inch so we can see what you are talking about!

  • Darri Scottch says:

    I've been told I am neutral but I find it interesting that I have a halo with the wheel and not quite sure if I have smoky or starburst because I can't be positive what I'm looking at but for sure the halo and wheel.

  • PurpleBirch says:

    Is it me, or the lighting she used, but the colors she is wearing makes her look sallow. I don’t think I’ll be taking her advice.

  • Interesting Stuff says:

    I think mine is flowering brown but I think I also have a bit wheeling? I thought I was warm neutral…I am super confused

  • Leilah E. says:

    Hmmm, I have grey-blue eyes with halo and smokiness…so I suppose I'm a neutral. Couldnt understand the speckling/flowering though as the example eyes were too distant to tell.

  • Jackie Wengert says:

    Are you for real. That was the most confusing video I ever seen. Thanks for making me more confused.

  • linda handley says:

    It's too complicated. I think I'd rather just go to someone who could just do it for me. LOL.

  • Sasset Sheldon says:

    My phone knows me very well. This is exactly what type of video I needed because I’m having trouble nailing down look my color season would be. And this video was in my recommended section and it’s very helpful

  • Sasset Sheldon says:

    Since my eyes look exactly like the one at 13:25 I guess I’m neutral

  • Alexia_Ashford says:

    I have starburst pattern, but I've been told I have cool undertone

  • Chelsea Brisco says:

    Understatement alert at 3:50… for real though, Carol I appreciate your videos for their information and thoroughness, thank you! If I could offer a bit of friendly critique, you don’t need to qualify your statements all the time, and a bit more editing and less preamble would serve you very well. Again, thank you for offering such helpful information! All the best.

  • Janet says:

    WOW…. I'm neutral warm… Thank you .

  • Hootilicious says:

    I now know what my undertone is. I had all the warm eye traits. Thank you!

  • ChucksAreForShmucks says:

    Wow. I actually think I'm warm! All I know is that I look best in greens. Moreso than blues or straight yellows.

  • Monica Missouri says:

    Here's mine

  • K says:

    This is so interesting! I would like to send you a photo of my eye!

  • risingsun49 says:

    This was a nice simple way to explain the eyes and the tones. I never saw a presentation as clear as this one. I was able to fully understand it thank you.

  • dieZera says:

    I don't get the difference between star burst and a halo…

  • C HF says:

    That was as clear as MUD! 🧐

  • Jennifer Elwell says:

    Thank you for trying to find more way to figure this out, but I'm ready to throw color analysis out the window. Every resource I view/read makes it more confusing because not everyone agrees. Then add the "soft, warm, bright, clear, deep" designations, and it muddies it even more. I'm so thankful I have an artist's eye, so I can quickly tell if a color is altering my complexion in a bad way. I think color saturation and balance are more important that deciding if you are cool, warm, or neutral. But, different lighting alters how skin, hair and eye color are perceived. I've resorted to putting a high-resolution photo of myself on Photoshop and swiping different colors swatches around my jawline, which is way too obsessive! Wear whatever color you like. If you think you look good, that's all that matters.

  • Mag Sher says:

    is there a reason you make these videos looking like you dont wear makeup. ??

  • Shauna Urban says:

    I cant tell. I think I have a starburst & cloudy, bt not sure.I'd love to donate my peepers if you do something like this again! Im fascinated w eyes & I had someone a while ago, that told me they could tell ppls health by their eyes, so interesting! Thank you so much for sharing this info!

  • Night says:

    What rubbish.

  • Nicole Marie says:

    This worked for me! From this, I was able to determine that I do have neutral cool toned skin. I tried some Bright Winter lipsticks and voila. That's it. Thank you for this video!

  • Karina Palazzo says:

    What about olive

  • srichmond15 says:

    My eyes have changed colors as I have gotten older, the brown has retracted to a starburst. Eye doctor says the fibers have degraded. None of this has anything to do with undertone.

  • Eifion Phillips says:

    Why do people hate brown eyes you can have red or blonde hair and wear colourful eye make up. I hate my dull dark grey eyes, i would love brown eyes.

  • Kristal RifeCooper says:

    I have grey eyes with a Halo and starburst. I love both warm and cool colors on myself, and according to test #3: I look good in neutral colors as well.

  • Judy bodi says:

    this is the most confusing bs ever

  • Twisted Sister says:

    I am not trying to be rude, but Carol, you need a different hairstyle! Also, the burgundy color is not the best for your your skin tone! I'm sure there are some better colors out there for you!!!

  • carole prisk says:


  • twistedxvengeance says:

    Video starts at 5:27 , your welcome.

  • magicpainthorse says:

    I'm confused. I have the starburst pattern. Alway knew I was warm but I don't know which kind of warm, i.e. autumn or spring.

  • Leslie Ryalls says:

    Sorry, this was extremely confusing to me.

  • Kimberlee Bell says:

    Hi Carol,
    I'm not sure what I am as I look horrendous in many of the warm colours, yet redheads are supposedly warm. Any ideas?

  • fussymynx78 says:

    I'm even more confused after the video than before 🤔

  • Nessa Bixler says:

    Oh my word! I have always thought I was warm (strawberry blonde with freckles) and struggled frequently. But after this video I think I am neutral! This makes sense much more than anything I have ever been told! I look terrible in over half of the warm and some of the cool colors and struggled dressing. Now I have a place to start!

  • Richard Eidemiller says:

    I'm a female despite the log in name.
    Anyway I have probably the darkest eyes a Caucasian
    woman can have. Cannot define pupils from iris so I can
    see nothing but dark.
    I'm not sure I believe this is a way to find the best colors anyway.

  • nlbhaduri says:

    she looks awful, pass.

  • Isla R says:

    most confusing unorganized video i’ve seen. ever

  • Peg Kilday says:

    This has to be the most confusing thing I have ever heard!

  • otilia Braescu says:

    She looks great. The attention is to her face mainly which is the ideal. I like how her hair tint matches her shirt slightly. She has it down. My focus is on her face not her clothes or hair which is how it should be PERIOD

  • Ирина _ says:

    What is the flowering?

  • Luli Sissy says:

    Still dont get it.

  • abdulazuz adel says:

    Here is comments section below Carol mentions that even though she was told by makeup professionals that her skin has yellow undertone, she believes that if fact her undertone is pink. What do you think?

  • Jeebuz says:

    I don't have a pattern, just a darker cirkle around it.

  • guylaine nicol says:

    omg !!! seriously . This is not helpful at all . The color of your veins on your wrist . Blue = cool Green = warm . That simple !

  • Kathy B says:

    This is such a fabrication. I studied Iridology and the features you are pointing out in peoples eyes are signs of different problems in the body. Nothing to do with skin tone as this can change as a person gets treatment and becomes healthier.

  • Vix Beauty n Hair says:

    Can you tell me if im cool undertone or neutral cool?

  • Arianna Fine says:

    Woa this is amazing!

  • Cyndi Howland says:

    Thank you for your examples of eye colors. Please show more examples of just brown eyes. Thank you in advance.

  • Lora Liche says:

    Hi I have eyes with a starburst pattern sometimes they appear brown with green starburst or brown with amber depending on lighting. I have dyed blonde hair and medium skin. Am I right to assume my undertone is warm or neutral? Oh and thank you for the insight. I always noticed the starburst in my eye. I kinda love it. Your explanation was very good and your eyes pop so u must know your stuff.

  • Angela Morsani says:

    I think the biggest mistake in this video is never explaining what the terms used mean. What does "cloudy" means? What differenciates "starbust" from "halo"? What's a "wheel"? Everything is used in a very ambiguous and arbitrary way, and the light reflections on the eyes don't help at all.

  • •HuyenAnh Chu• says:

    The eye pattern method is quite new and cool. But I was kinda in a cloud due to the unclear explaination

  • lyelma3 says:

    Interesting , I have pale green eyes with a black rim halo ,, wheel pattern and a freckle in one of them ???? ☺️

  • Brittany Wilson says:

    I'm glad other people's eyes look all gross and wiggly up too close

  • Mary K says:

    Can you elaborate a little bit on the difference between the halo and the cloud patterns? I'm confused about my eyes, because I have the wheel pattern, but I also have a circular pattern around my eye which is slightly darker than the rest of my (brown) eye. So I could either be a full cool or a neutral, depending on this pattern.

  • Tracy Miller says:

    TYSM! I've been trying to figure out my undertone, I have starburst, speckling, wheel and smoke. I believe I'm neutral… silver jewelry for sure so neutral cool? I love your videos Carol! So informative 🙂

  • Maria Jose Martinez says:

    Flowering type here 😉

  • Holly Rey says:

    Cool, neutral. Freckles in my eyes, on my cheeks, yellow toned skin on my face but bluish veins on my pink toned wrists. Idk 🤗 We're all lovely but when we try to categorize our beauty it gets too complicated

  • Janet Leight says:

    You are a confusing lady

  • M Z says:

    So interesting I’ve always thought I’m a Deep Autumn and my eyes are very dark brown very Neutral in coloring just a dark coffee brown and I have both a starburst and a halo but I have a lot of flowering….also I have a dark thin limbal ring that’s cloudy around the border. Makes a lot of sense that I’d have both qualities!

  • Sarah Jasmine M says:

    I seem to have none of those. Just short 1mm lines from the pupil and 2 rings near the outside of the iris. Overall it looks uniform in colour with very little demarcations. Just one dense colour. I'm deciding between warm/deep autumn and deep winter.

  • Lynne Jones says:

    omg someone else in the comments noticed also how sallow she looked… yes, the color she is wearing is unflattering to her, therefore, not too good of an advertisement for her color analysis. and this video also dragged on and was a bit boring.

  • healthnut says:

    You should really check out iridology. All of the eye characteristics that you were talking about are not the color they’re actually health issues and when you clear it up it will be the true color of your eye.

  • Joana C. Ribeiro says:

    Wow this was the easiest way to understand my undertone! I've been struggling forever. If this is real it's amazing that's so easy!

  • Carrie Young says:

    Great video and very informational! I still can't figure out what I am lol. I thought I was fully cool but my eyes have warm/ nuetral patterns. Really want to color my hair red but am not sure if it'll be in harmony with my undertones. I was matched at the Estee Lauder counter with a cooler foundation with peachy/pink undertones. So confused lol. Anyways, thanks so much for sharing I really enjoy your videos!

  • Woot Mama says:

    I have hazel eyes. Dark green with a brown center. I have dark red hair, pale skin and so many freckles.😂 But my mom, who has the same the exact same eyes as me, has dark brown hair and can tan. She can wear colors that I just can't and vice versa. 🤔

  • Swan Queen says:

    Most of the yes showing "flowering" have freckles and starburst shapes lol this is super confusing

  • Athena Missinghome says:

    This makes no sense. Let’s add to the already confusing task of finding undertone. No no no

  • Kelly Moreau says:

    Curious, would you be considered a neutral?

  • Sherry Edwards says:

    Is it possible that both eyes are not the same? What if 1 eye appears warm and the other eye cool? Is this normal?

  • N L says:

    If this is true, you can tell what diseases a cool or warm undertone might develop. 🤔

  • Vivi W says:

    My eyes are the same color as Ville Valo's

  • Pe Pe says:

    I have all except sparkling😂🤔😅
