How to Find Your Perfect Shade of Foundation

Choosing Foundation Based on Your Skin Undertone

Your skin tone and skin undertone are different. When we are talking about skin tone, it’s in reference to the skin on the surface. Your skin tone can change with diet, the amount of sun you’re getting and other factors. Meanwhile, your undertone does not change at all. Undertone is the constant, subtle color beneath the skin’s surface. Since it never changes, it’s helpful to know your skin’s undertone when picking out foundation, jewelry, clothing, and more. Read on to explore the different undertones and find out yours! 


Do you have a cool, neutral or warm undertone? 

There are three different kinds of undertones when you’re looking for foundation shades. 


  1. Cool Undertone 

When you have a cool undertone, your skin has a pink, red, or bluish hue. Those with cool undertones are often more drawn to silver jewelry because it looks best on them! You can also check your veins, if you see mainly blue veins then your undertone is on the cool side. You can rock clothes that are deep purple, bright blue, pink, and lavender. 


  1. Neutral Undertone 

If you’re in the neutral group, your skin undertone carries a balanced mix of both the 

warm and cool shades or is an olive shade. This also means means that you rock both gold and silver jewelry equally! Most colors look good on you and you can pull off just about anything. Check your veins, if they are a mix between green and blue, then you probably have a neutral undertone. 


  1. Warm undertone

People with a warm undertone have yellow, peach, and golden hints to their skin.They feel best in gold jewelry! If you have a warm undertone, you probably rock that straight-up gold highlighter shade. Your veins most likely appear to be green. When it comes to what to wear, you often shoot for earth tones! Some great colors to go for: green, brown, mustard yellow and warm reds. 


Now that you have an idea of which undertone your skin has, let’s move onto finding the best shade of toxin-free foundation for you!
