Choosing the right foundation is not easy. This handy guide might help you find the perfect shade that melts into your skin and makes it look fabulous.

Step 1 - Identify your skin's undertone

When choosing the right shade, you need to look at eh undertone of your skin.

Look at the veins on the inside of your wrist.

  • Blue or purple veins mean you have a cool undertone. Your skin has a red, pink or blue tinge to it. You need to use a foundation with a rosier redder or blue base.
  • If you have a warm undertone, the veins on your wrist appear green or olive. Your skin has a gold, peach or yellow tinge to it. Your foundation needs a yellow or golden base.
  • If you have a neutral undertone, the veins on your wrist are blue-green. Your skin is neither pink, red or blue; nor yellow, gold or peach but somewhere in between.

Step 2 - Test the Shade

Once you've identified your undertone, choose a few shades to test. The best place to test foundation is your chest or the centre of your jawline, along the side of the face. The right shade should disappear into your skin.
