Tip Tuesday: Find Your Perfect Foundation Match

written by: Emily Lopez
Let’s talk foundation matching! Finding the perfect shade AND the perfect tone can be rough. No one wants to look like a mime or an oompa loompa. Am I right?? First off, look at your veins on the inside of your wrist. Are the blue? Or more green? This says a lot about the TONE you need to select. Blue veins mean you have a cooler undertone. Green veins mean you have a warmer undertone. Not sure whether they’re green or blue? Perhaps you have a neutral undertone. Carefully select a few different shades and use a q-tip or sponge and vertically sweep the foundation across your jawline down to your neck. This will lead you to the most accurate match. Also, make sure you have good, natural light wherever you’re shade matching.
