Finding that perfect shade of foundation might feel like quite a task. But don’t worry! We’ve got you covered. Follow these simple tips and finding the perfect foundation for your skin will be a cakewalk!

What is the intensity of your skin color?

The shade of the foundation will definitely depend on your skin tone. Check how light or how deep it is. There are different types of foundation shades- very light, very dark, medium-deep, so on and so forth. So make sure you judge the intensity of your skin color correctly!

What exactly is your undertone?

If your bare skin has a rosy undertone to it, then you should definitely pick a cool-toned shade of a foundation. On the other hand if your skin has a golden undertone then you should definitely go for warmer shades!

Is this your real skin color?

Here’s the tricky part: Identifying your original skin color compared to your tanned color. If you choose a foundation shade based on your tanned skin color, your face will look like a disaster once the tan fades away! Make sure you take your time and judge well!

Where should you test it?

This is the biggest mistake that most of us make- testing the foundation shade on our hands. Well, for most people the skin tone of their face varies from the tone on their hands. So the best way is to test the foundation on your face and not your hands.

Who can you ask for help?

All of this might seem quite confusing to the point where you might want to give up! But, instead of giving up, you could find your dream foundation shade by consulting a professional. They’re available at all make-up counters and are always more than happy to help out!

How to pick the perfect shade?

Not all make-up brands will allow this but there’s no harm in asking. A shade might look different in different situations and lighting. Before finalizing on one shade, ask if you can try it out for 10 days and then make a final decision!
