How to Find Your Correct Match Foundation Shade?
You will need to know your skin tone and undertone to determine your actual match foundation colour. L’Oréal Paris True Match Super Blendable Makeup has warm, calm and neutral undertones from light to dark.
While most people already know their skin tone, the same cannot always be thought of for undertones. The difference between the two is that your skin tone reflects your complexion. At the same time, undertones are the colours that appear on your skin and affect the overall style.
Cool undertones appear as hints of blue or pink in your complexion, while warm undertones are more yellow or gold. If your undertones are neutral, you’re in the middle. To quickly determine your undertone, try one of the two methods below.
1. Look at the colour of your strains
Look inside your arm. You have a cool complexion if your veins look blue or purple, while green veins indicate warm-toned skin. So if you are not sure, you can remain neutral.
2. Try checking the paper
This method is weird, we’ll be the first to admit it, but we’ve seen it work. Place a piece of white paper on your skin. The white should bring out the colour of your skin. If your face suddenly looks pink or blue, you have great undertones, and if you leave more yellow undertones, you’re hot. If your skin looks grey, your undertones are neutral.
Once you’ve figured out your undertone, you can find your foundation shade. Again, you should go for warm tones if you have a friendly trace. Cooler undertones should choose shades that have hints of pink tones. And those in the neutral category should get a piece of advice on gold to help warm the complexion.
The proper match foundation comes with a label that identifies the shades and makes it easy to find a match (for example, an N would mean a neutral hue and a W would mean warm).
How to match the colour to your Foundation?
We recommend trying a few shades to find your perfect match. Below are some helpful tips for finding the right one.
1. Do the test on your chest
Just looking at the foundation in the package to find your shade won’t do. After all, you don’t know how something will look until it’s on your skin. So play it safe and try a few shades by applying a little foundation to the centre of your chest. Since our faces and necks can take on different colours due to sun exposure, hyperpigmentation and more, those areas can be tricky.
Exact shade matches. The chest area often best reflects your undertones and gives you the right tone for an even skin tone that also matches your body.
If you want to test your face, test on an area with dark spots so you know the shade you choose will cover those imperfections and blend perfectly with your complexion.
2. Test under different lighting
Therefore depending on the season, your complexion may change. For example, it can be lighter in winter due to less sun exposure and darker in summer if you tan. So be sure to look at your model under different lighting before painting the entire face. And when it comes to lighting, don’t just depend on your bathroom lights, be sure to test your foundation in natural light to get an idea of how it will look when you spend time outdoors.
3. Use the Virtual Foundation Test Tool
