Makeup Basics: How To Find The Right Foundation Color

posted in: Face, Makeup Education | 0

We have been a leader in the makeup industry worldwide for over 50 years, and believe it or not, the one thing we have seen in common with women of all ages is that they were never properly taught the most basic lessons in makeup and skincare.

What’s one of the things women have the hardest time with when it comes to makeup you may ask? The answer may shock you: How to find the right foundation shades to match their skin tone.

Suffering this same problem? There’s nothing to be ashamed about.

Here is everything you need to know to find the perfect foundation for a glowing complexion with minimal effort.

Know and Love Your Skin Type

 We’re born with one face, so it’s in our best interest to know and love what we have to work with!

The key to finding the right products that work for you is to truly know and understand your complexion and skin type.

Some women have oily skin while others have a drier complexion. The good news is there is always product to work with every skin type under the sun, but you have to know your skin first for the best results.

When it comes down to it, the answer is simple: Think about your face in its natural state without any product and go from there.

Setting The Ground Work: Skin Tone

 No girl wants to be that girl that walks into a party with a face that matches the drape color, so be sure to know what colors to work with, and you’re set.

Your skin will always fall into either one of three categories: Warm, cool, or neutral.

Women with fair skin that burn easily will always fall into the ‘fair’ category.

Women who find that they tan easily most likely fit into the ‘warm’ category, and finally, women who are not too sure where they fall are considered a ‘neutral’ base tone.

We’ve made all of our products with varying skin tones in mind. Our most popular selling item Magic Minerals and our newest Liquid mineral foundation Air Cushion both come in a variety of shades to perfectly match skin tones ranging from fair to dark.
