How To: Pick the Perfect Foundation!


It’s either a hit or miss when it comes to choosing the right foundation, and a lot of times, we miss. But if you’re choosing it solely based on your complexion, you’re making the mistake of leaving the house looking like the tanning bed won, or you’ve been scared out of your skin.

To asses what shade is right for you, dip a Q-tip into the foundation container and then apply it to the center of your jawline area along the side of your face. If the shade appears invisible, you’ve met your match!But, before you go selecting your shade, make sure you read this post to try and help you prevent making the mistake of choosing a foundation based on how light or dark you are, when you should be looking at your undertones. We are either neutral, cool, or warm.

If you’re cool, the veins on your inner wrist appear blue, you tend to turn a flushed pink colour in the sun, and you burn easily, so you want to look for a foundation that has rosier, redder, or blue base.

If you’re warm, the veins on your wrist appear green, and you quickly bronze or darken in the sun, so look for a foundation that has a golden or yellow base.

For the neutral ladies like Selena Gomez, you’ve got an equal number of blue and green veins. You are also one of the lucky ones who can pull off any shade of lipstick and eye shadow.
