Choose your correct shade of foundation

Finding the right shade of foundation can be a challenge. We often face the frustration of choosing a foundation that does not perfectly match our skin tone. However, by understanding the basic principles of colorimetry, we can make this task much easier and more accurate. In this blog, we will provide you with some useful tips to help you identify your correct shade of foundation and achieve a flawless look.

  1. Understand your undertone: Before you start looking for your foundation shade, it is important that you understand your undertone. Undertones can be warm, cold or neutral. An easy way to determine your undertone is to look at the veins in your wrist. If your veins have a green tone, you likely have a warm undertone. If your veins appear bluer, you likely have a cool undertone. If you can't tell if they're green or blue, you may have a neutral undertone.
  2. Perform a jaw test: Once you have an idea of ​​your undertone, it's time to do a jaw test to find the right shade of foundation. The jawline is a good place to test foundation, as it is generally an area that has less sun exposure and more accurately shows your natural skin tone.
  3. Consider your skin type: In addition to the shade of foundation, it is important to consider your skin type. If you have oily skin, look for a long-wearing, oil-free foundation to avoid unwanted shine. If you have dry skin, opt for hydrating and luminous finish foundations to add a dewy look to your skin. If you have combination skin, you can choose a foundation that suits the different areas of your face.

Select three shades of foundation that are close to your undertone and apply them in parallel lines on your jaw. Gently blend each shade and watch how they blend into your skin. The foundation shade that blends perfectly and disappears into your skin is the correct shade. Avoid choosing a foundation that is darker or lighter than your natural shade, as this can give you an unnatural look.

Buying makeup online can be a challenge when it comes to finding the right shade of foundation. Here are some tips to help you choose the right shade when shopping online:

  1. Know your skin tone and undertone: Before purchasing online, it is important that you know your skin tone and undertone. Remember the steps above to determine if your undertone is warm, cool, or neutral. Also, get familiar with your skin tone, whether you are light, medium or dark. This will help you narrow down your options and have a clearer idea of ​​what shade to look for.
  2. Check product descriptions and reviews: When browsing the makeup website, read product descriptions carefully and pay attention to keywords that indicate the shade and undertone of the foundation. Many brands have detailed information on the shades available and can indicate whether they are best suited for warm, cool or neutral undertones. Also, check reviews from other buyers to get an idea of ​​how the foundation fits different skin tones. Look for reviews from people with a similar skin tone to yours to get a more accurate perspective.
