Color Theory: Warm+Cool

1 971 views | 12 Jul. 2019

What is "warm" and what is

What is "warm" and what is "cool"? What does color theory say about it and how do we interpret that into makeup and skin? Let's discuss!

Marilyn Monrose

You really should have held up the wheel to your face, so people can see what you mean.


Fantastic. Thank you!


this is so insightful. I'm thinking of becoming a makeup artist, and your videos (and that book) are being so helpful

Neha Kirar

And that when indian film industry very wast and and women here do use makeup regularly

Radha Prathapaneni

Thank you ?

Neha Kirar

I hope you get this colour wheel to India too....
It is very difficult to even get some good brand products here Professionally we only have krayolan

Yimar Uzcategui

Thanks learned a lot!!! Please OnLine classes!!!

Amena Ahmad

Hey Terri can you make a video dedicated to not so common undertones ? Such as a peach undertone or a olive undertone ? And also about people who have an undertone that doesn’t fall in one box such as warm neutral etc ?


i love you terri!! ?


I love your color wheel. For someone like me, who's brain is completely analytical, color theory is a nightmare. If you put two brown eyeshadows next to one another, I could tell you which is cool and warm, but if you showed me a white woman and asked me her undertone, I wouldn't be able to tell you. I see a white woman. For the life of me, I don't know how people see any blue, red, green, etc. I see a white person who might have a little tan or something. I know the "tests" you can do on yourself to tell if you have warm or cool undertones, but I sure can't see it by looking at someone. That's what's so frustrating. To me, that can't be learned:(


Such a great wheel, it explains all and solve my confusion.

Terri Tomlinson

Someone asked where to purchase the wheel but I can't find their comment. Alcone, Camera Ready Cosmetics, Frends, Norcostco, Nigels and Naimies have it. You can also purchase it at makeup101.com. For a complete listing visit thefleshtonecolorwheel.com Thanks!

derikah gwirl

Can you tell us how to use the wheel to find blush and bronzer

Frances López

Thank you I want to find my undertone. I think I’m using the wrong foundation.

Grace Marotti

im sooo glad I came across this. do you have a color theory book?

but, don t some of the other darker colors have names? like navy blue, forest green, burgundy red and so on?

Gazza Boo

Pfft, brown is the least of our worries. If you want real evil sorcery, look at pink..

Nina Aniston

Kinda shitty topic...


Red paints looks like tomato ketchep??

Brian Obey

Let me holler at all my dark orange brothers on the one time

brijesh pogul

If you have seen his video showing his set, he has a TV in the background. Now look a the Square where the cassettes are located. Its interesting how he mimicked a textured wall.


"Have you ever seen a brown light?" thanks to AW



Drake Hood

0:05 i thought he was about to start the avatar intro.


brown light

hehahahe.... good times

Diamond Train

Wait... I've only been watching this guy and I thought he shared a resemblance to Aging Wheels, one of my favorite guys on YouTube. HOW ARE THEY RELATED


"red yellow, rellow?"

Scooby doo says Rellow instead of hello. Scooby doo is brown.

Rellow is a bizzaro universe alternative name of orange, pronounced frequently by a brown character.

Engine Resurrector

Has anyone else noticed the guy from aging Wheels showed up!? 1:31


Do a video on violet (7f00ff). Violet is actually in the colour wheel between blue and magenta by the way >> that isn't purple. Purple is dark magenta which you did say lol
A more true violet (as would be seen by our eyes) exists in a more saturated, brighter form of the colour eigengrau though for some reason it seems to be called "blue" instead of violet (even though it's clearly a desaturated shade of violet. To me, at least but I'm very good at spotting violet anyway considering it's my favourite colour)

AE Stereo

Most ridiculous science ever learned. 21 minutes of fascinating knowledge.

Evening Sky

Which came first the fruit or the color?

Tor Sudmeyer

So you're telling me brunettes are just gingers with context?


Personally I prefer to lean towards red rather than pure orange for brown hues, they somehow seem more pleasant to me in a neutral color space.

PS. I've always found heavily saturated dark purples to come across as more black than any other non-pure black hue. Maybe its because the purple is the furthest to the peaks of our color vision like you mentioned in the weird world of RGB?


Brown dwarf stars, darker than space.


Actually the way we discriminate colors in language is pretty arbitrary. I've heard about African tribes having many different names for various shades of green , that we'd probably all just all "green". but if you think about it, there's a very large spectrum of green. Both in hue (closer to yellow or closer to blue) and in brightness and saturation (pale, bright, dark, lush etc...) I guess if you spend all your days in a jungle it's pretty natural to create names for distinct shades of green.

Vic Oilsteems

Didnt think this was a tech moan video

Tim fondiggle

I cant make brown light but u can make heavy brown

Jeff Donald

I used to get made fun of when I was a child for saying brown was my favorite color. Glad I'm not the only one.

Mens rea

I'm not sure the saturation axis is actually a straight line. The left edge of the triangle is 0 saturation and the lower-right edge is maximum saturation so it's actually more of an arc where saturation corresponds to the angle from either of those two sides. Because colors are weird (and saturation is dependent on brightness)

Joe XD

Are we just gonna ignore the aging wheels bit

Flameless Soul

so, this type of video fascinates me, but I can't actually experience it. I don't have cones in my eyes, I literally cannot perceive colored light, only light intensity. But, that doesn't stop me from enjoying the video to a degree.

BTW, Yes, the inability to see color has impacted me plenty, including in my own videos.


Are you saying my shit is orange?

The Turcan's tribe

Clearly the humans are not developed completely ?

Eric Vilas

in Spanish, the most used word for "red" is "rojo", but there's another word that's sometimes used.
Wanna guess what it is?
Colorado. As in, "colored".
The first terms for colors were "black", "white", and "colored".


brown colours A E S T H E T I C

Technology Connections

If your display has a dynamic backlight, the color of the square may in fact be changing along with the average image brightness. I underestimated how common this is so I didn't mention it. So, if you're seeing it change - that wasn't me! Those colors in the video file are identical.
And, just so's ya know, there are indeed many browns and not all of them are necessarily derived from orange. As you saw, the Pantone 448C is much more like a very dark yellow. But, to me, the classic brown is definitely a descendant of orange.
And don't get me started on beige!

Dennis Lee

too heavy for me...

G. Alexandr

as an artist, we know that brown is desaturated orange :) Brown is generally a lovely colour


so ... orange man is really brown man?


So, brown is just Navy Orange. ?


I swear if you try to jumpscare at 8:16 I'm going to unring that bell.


3:00 I wanna introduce you to chocolate skittles. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJMuPM9j804

Ross X

What's the song at 8:47?

Evening Sky

Orange is a dark yellow

Names Lastnames

so brounettes are ginger?

Aleksey Potapchuk

ok, who came here from 9gag post about brunettes?




"...but on the whole (hole) brown is a nice color"

not sure i agree with ya here

Ashley Noble

Wait until he hears about grey!

death2you 972

when I watched this it got me thinking about a monochromatic light as that seems like it'd be the closest representation of brown light that we'd humanly have

Oh my god it is Spider

Why am i watching this im fucking colorblind

Willy Mc

So with a little bit of mental gymnastics, Trump is black

Raela Ash

That "world's ugliest colour" reminds me of petrified wood. It looks strong, I like it a lot.

Seph Shewell Brockway

Also interesting are languages like Russian and Italian that make distinctions in their basic colour words that English doesn’t: in Russian, dark blue is ‘синий’ (‘sinij’) and light blue is ‘голубой’ (‘goluboj’)—there is no word that simply means ‘blue’, and native Russian speakers don’t perceive, say, a navy suit and the sky as being the same colour.

Mikal Carlson

Kodak Eastman's film was racist. Brown was not a color they were concerned about capturing accurately. Pink white, and beige skin tones came out crystal clear however.


Although the word "棕色" can be translated into "brown colour", its literal meaning is "palm trees colour" (palm tree in Chinese is "棕榈树”). However, the word "棕色" has a synonym that is "褐色" which mean "black-yellow colour" or just "brown".


Brown -
"It's orange, but darker "

Felipe Cardoza

"Taste the brown" my mind went straight to the gutter.

Homebrew Horsepower

I like the random Robert Dunn cameo with no explanation.

Tristyn Russelo

"On the whole, brown is a nice color"
On the hole, brown is NOT a nice color


This is one of those things that once you find out, it seems obvious.


"taste the brown", still laughing

Denzin Virtue

Me whos colour blind, hmmm interesting

ulv schmidt

In my language orange was called what would have translated as "fire yellow"

Koke Puppy

brown doesn’t exist

Most of the shoes: oh

Felix Schapendonk

Did i really just watch 21 minutes of info about brown and actually like it?


Wait, so a Terry's Chocolate Orange is is called that because of the colour, not the likeness to the fruit. Hmmm.

Ian Barton

I feel strangely racist lol

Tristyn Russelo

"Barely able to see 3 colors"
Barely is actually very accurate... Look into how color blindness works, yeah, we are BARELY able to see 3, 2 for color blind people

Visual Audio

Well I now know your favorite book "60 shades of brown" 19:12

Seph Shewell Brockway

Also: pink, much like orange, was perceived as just a pale shade of red until the Early Modern period, when it acquired a name derived from the flower.

Anne Vo

I'd love a video in which you discuss how the true primary colors are yellow, cyan, and magenta and everything everyone has learned in elementary art is a lie.

Aaron D

Is beige a brown? What about effervescent shit stain?

Jeff Khoury

I love any and all collabs between you and Aging Wheels/Under Dunn. You're the modern-day odd couple.

Buddy Woof

next you'll tell us that turquoise is just a greenish blue...

Andrew Vrba

Chocolate. Goes in brown, comes out brown. What is up with that?! Seinfeld theme riff

Jay Sauer

i hate you for making me see my delightful browns and only dark orange

give me back my innocents

Noob Valley

im going to subscribe because i like your face

Pengcheng Wu

As soon as we step out, our black companion appears orange again...

souley sow

Why are Africans and their descendants called black if they are brown?

Bermet Azem

My life if a lieee


0:45 people


Huh, so maybe that's why I like them the most...

George Gividen

So, explain light brown.


me finally getting to my work.
hmmmm a video about Brownn


Fascinating for sure!

Adam Nicholas

lol dark yellow red

Romantic Outlaw

as an artist I knew where this was going immediately lol. See also, pink.

Momo Kawashima

"Brown is a darker orange"
Me: chief tannabok surprised face


12:15 learned not learn, you’re using current tense not past tense of the word learn. Also, you’re saying “In the time” in High school not “When” in high school as you probably meant to say. Lastly, the “I” would sound more natural if it goes at the beginning of the sentence for Chinese, ie “I learned Chinese while/back in high school”


"RGB Gaming Rig"

Is this a personal attack?

Igoor Silver

8:25 this is literally brown lmao
Edit: wow i tried to do this on my smartphone and this worked, awesome!

Thunder Lucas

I had quite the surprise when i noticed the laptop shown is the same one i'm using XD

Agustiar Aelakh

16:15 red+black turns brown

Sal Cusmano

so can someone explain to me why mixing yellow and purple will also give me brown?


It's weird how I watched this video a year ago when it was uploaded and youtube recommends it to me again exactly a year later...

Rem Joleea

The demonstration at 13:28 didn’t work because I have cursed homestuck eyes u_u

Demetre Jakhaia

wait what? LGR didn't comment about wood grain

Brian Obey

Are you down with the brown?

Torrential Rain

but what if orange is just bright brown though.

don'ts and donots

wow I just realized yeah in turkish too brown is literally ''coffee colour'' = kahverengi. kahve=coffee , renk=colour

Evening Sky

Then why did my brown wooden furniture still look brown with the light off?

markus gundersen

I see litteraly no difference in the square at 8:34 and it frustrates me

Ashley Noble

And the fruit wasn't even called an orange until we stopped calling all fruit apples!

Nickolas Barmenkov

In Russia we have distinct words for blue and light-blue: синий/голубой. Every pre-schooler can identify light-blue as a distinct color and call it by its russian name.

Is brown a warm or cool color

Kimber Lee

Lil Bear

What I don't understand is why do we mix so much air into the egg whites just to keep stirring and stirring until to air is deflated.

Saraaa Kahari

I'm not sure but I guess Ruby chocolate would be great too

Lauren Hathaway

Lavender macarons! Are they worth all the hype??!
