So, I’ve made another little video after Maria from Colour Me Happy had a request about how to choose foundation colours.
My tip is, as you will see is to try on every colour, don’t limit yourself to two or three colours. Put them along your jawline, then look for the colour that disappears into your skin. If your chest colour is darker than your face colour you will need to match your makeup to your chest, not face, if they are similar, use the jawline as a guide.
Ignore labels of warm and cool, I have a cool undertone (which we see as pinkish), but have a yellowish overtone, as foundation goes on the top of my skin, it needs to match with my overtone, not undertone, so has a slight yellowish hue. I also have plenty of clients who have a warm undertone, but a pinkish overtone and suit a more pinking foundation colour.
Don’t attempt to change the colour of your skin with foundation, just use it to smooth out your skin and hide blemishes.
I’ve then included a section on my daily quick and easy makeup – it would normally take me less than 5 minutes, but because I’m talking you through the application it takes just under 10 on the video.
I hope it is helpful! Enjoy!
And this is a great book recommendation more help and detailed information that really explains how you can apply makeup to suit any face shape and eye shape.
