Choosing the right foundation shade can be really difficult.
Whether you purchase your foundation in person or online, the struggle is real. The lighting at makeup counters can be deceiving and online swatches can be confusing. BUT! Fear not, I am here to teach you how to match your foundation online. You can thank me later.
Honestly, it’s all about undertones. You need to know whether you have yellow, pink, olive or neutral undertones. The undertones you have determines whether you need a yellow, pink, olive or neutral-based foundation shade. Getting the undertone of your foundation right, will make your foundation look natural and blend easily into your neck.
Know what foundation shade you currently use (if you use foundation) and know whether you are happy with the shade and finish, and why. If you are unhappy with the shade or finish, know why. This helps narrow your focus so you can eliminate foundations online because they are not the finish or coverage that you want. This would be simply by reading the description of the product.
When shopping online, have your bottle of foundation next to you. Swatch it on your hand or neck and then blend it in. Try to match what is on your hand as closely to the online swatch as possible.
