Here are a few tips to help you find what you are looking for:
Foundations for every type of skin: it’s this year’s rallying cry! The nuances offered in the cosmetics department are more numerous, diversified and affordable than ever. So how do you find the one that’s right for you? Easy. Just read on…
It’s the Golden Rule. You want a colour that blends well with your natural complexion: very light, light, medium, matte or dark. If you don’t find one that’s identical, choose one that’s slightly (very slightly) paler, to ensure that the natural luminosity of your skin shines through.
One bit of information you have to know to properly choose a pigment is your skin’s undertone. While factors like exposure to the sun can make your complexion lighter or darker, your undertone never changes. And it’s the undertone that’s referenced by those letters placed before the nuance numbers on packaging…
Want to know which category you fit into? Check your veins! If they’re a little greenish, your undertone is warm. If they’re bluish, it’s cool. If you have a hard time choosing between warm and cool, it’s probably neutral.
Pro tip: Still confused? Take a look at your jewellery. Generally speaking, cooler skin tones work well with silver, while gold goes best with warm undertones. And neutral tones, well… they go well with everything.
…by asking three essential questions.
Right. So, you’ve chosen a product and a tint. Now it’s time to see what it looks like on your skin. Check the internet for swatches of various colours tested on different types of complexion. Remember, these are just to give you an idea. Each person’s skin is unique, and the skin tone in the photos is often retouched, so the best thing to do is to visit your cosmetics department and try them out for yourself. Feel free to ask the cosmetician for help. She’ll give you a sample and can help guide you to an equivalent product if the tint you’re looking for isn’t available in your favourite brand.
To make the most of your test, remember these 5 tips:
It’s also good to remember that a foundation that looks right in winter might not blend well with your summer complexion and vice-versa.
