Need help determining which foundation shade is the best for you? An important thing to note is that mineral foundation is very forgiving, so it’s not quite as important to get the EXACT right shade as it is for other types of foundation. But here are some suggestions to help!
1. Check Your Veins
Push your sleeves up and look at the veins on the inside of your wrist. Are they blue or green? If they look more blue/purple, you likely have cool undertones. If the veins look blue/greenish, you’re warm.
2. The Jewelry Trick
Think about whether you look better in silver or gold jewelry. Typically, girls with cool undertones look better in silver and platinum metals, and warm-toned women look better in gold.
3. The Neutral Test
Think about what neutral shades flatter you best. Does your skin, eyes, and face look better in bright white and black hues, or ivory, off-whites, and brown/tan shades? The former means you’re probably cool-toned, and the latter, warm.
4. Eye and Hair Color
Your natural eye and hair colors can help figure out your coloring. Typically, cool people have eyes that are blue, gray, or green and have blond, brown, or black hair with blue, silver, violet and ash undertones. Conversely, warm-toned women usually have brown, amber, or hazel eyes with strawberry blond, red, brown, or black hair. Their hair tends to have gold, red, orange, or yellow undertones.
5. The Sun’s Effects
When you’re out in the sun, does your skin turn a golden-brown, or does it burn and turn pink first? If you fit into the former category, you’re warm-toned, while cool tones tend to burn.
These are just suggestions, and there are definitely people who don’t fit into the classic categories. But I think you’ll find that you can make it work for you, even if you’re a smidge off on the shade 🙂
