Warm, cool and neutral - How to choose the right foundation for your skin's undertone

When it comes to choosing the right foundation, there is not a great chance that you can just walk into a store and find a shade that matches your skin tone perfectly. In order to find a foundation that is right for you, you have to be familiar with not only your skin tone,but also your undertone. Here is how you can find the perfect foundation for your complexion.

Your #skin’s undertone is about your overall coloring, not about whether your #skin is fair or dark. The undertone of your #skin can be warm (golden, yellow, peach), cool (red, blue, or pink), or neutral (greenish). Look at the inside of your wrist in natural light and observe your veins – if they appear blue, you have a cool undertone, and if they are green, you have a warm undertone, but if they are somewhere in between, you have a neutral undertone.

Warm-toned #foundations have a peach or yellow tone; if your undertone is golden or peachy, a yellow-toned #foundation will blend into your #skin really well. Warm #foundations for pale #skin are supposed to be pale peach or yellow ivory, and they look amazing in combination with other #makeup products in coral, peach, gold, and rust.

#Foundations with a cool undertone will have a pink undertone. Opt for a pink-toned beige instead of golden beige, and choose a soft rosy chocolate instead of deep coppery brown. These shades are usually difficult to find, but they pair great with pink and rose #blush and #lipstick.

Neutral #foundations have neither gold nor pink undertone. If warm or cool #foundations look too yellow or pink on your face, you can be sure that you have a neutral skin undertone. Even if you don’t have a neutral undertone, but you haven’t been able to find the right warm or cool #foundation, opt for a neutral version.
