Decoding skin undertones: Picking the right foundation for your skin
How many times have you randomly picked up a makeup product thinking it goes with your complexion and ended up looking ashen or extremely pale? Whether it’s your foundation, lipstick or blush you won’t be able to find the perfect product until the time you are not aware of your undertone. Once you know and understand your skin undertone you can land the perfect makeup shades that actually suit and beautify you. Once you understand your undertone, we will recommend the right foundation for your skin undertone for that flawless look!
Finding your undertone
We can divide undertone into three categories:
The right foundation for the right undertone
1) Cool Undertone
Check your wrist. If you have a cool undertone, the veins of your wrist are mostly blue or purple and you have red or pink hues.
Silver jewellery looks better on you rather than gold and your skin turns tomato red in the sun. Talk about being sun burnt!
Our recommendation for Foundation: Makeup Forever HD in shades 107, 110, 135.
2) Warm Undertone
If you are warm, the veins on your wrists have a greenish tinge and you have yellowish, gold or peach hues. You rock in gold jewellery rather than in silver and you skin tends to turn golden brown in the sun. This undertone is found mostly in the Indian skin tone.
Our recommendation for Foundation: M.A.C Studio Fix Nc30, Nc35, Nc40
3) Neutral Undertone
You have a neutral undertone if the veins on your wrist are a mix of green purple and blues. You guys are really lucky. A little bit of sun, and you get the perfect bronze tanned look. Almost everything suits you. Both gold and silver jewellery make you look gorgeous. Your skin is a mix of gold and pinkish hues.
Our recommendation for Foundation: NARS
