How to choose the best makeup for your skin tone?

Finding the perfect makeup for your skin tone can be a daunting task. There are so many options to choose from ; you need to get it right if success is in your sights.👀

Finding your skin tone is the first step to finding the best makeup for your skin. Your skin tone is one of the essential parts of making an informed beauty decision because it will help you find products that work well with your skin.🧐

If you're not sure where to start, look in the mirror. You'll see a range of colours from fair to dark and everything in between.

If you have any questions about what colours or tones look best for you, ask a friend or family member who has similar features and skin tone as yours😚.

Determine your undertone. Undertones are the colours you naturally have on your skin, like pink💗 or yellow💛. It's usually a good idea to match your foundation colour with your undertone, creating a more natural look. For example, choose a yellow foundation colour if you have a yellow undertone. There are other methods to know your undertone. One is by using jewellery. If silver jewellery suits you more, you’re cool-toned, and if gold suits you more, you’re warm-toned. We highly suggest you watch multiple videos to get the hang of all the undertones there can be!👀

When buying complexion products, it’s an excellent idea to get your first one by going to the store.🏪 When you swatch the foundation or concealer, do so on the jawline and wait a while to see how it oxidises (changes to a slightly different or darker shade). Make sure you’re swatching under white lights as warm yellow lights may deceive you💛! Trust me, this happened to me when I was at the store, and I bought a neutral undertone foundation instead of a warm one because the store had yellow lights. You don’t want to rush through this process and wait to see how the product sits on your skin and whether it is comfortable.🥰

Contours are usually cool-toned, and bronzers are warm-toned, and you can get any of them depending on whether you want a chiselled look or a bronzy glow! 🤎And blushes come in various shades, and it’s one of those products with which you can have sooo much fun!!❤️

You can also use your newfound knowledge of undertones to select your lipsticks! And if you’ve bought a shade lighter for you or brighter than you thought it would be, you should consider getting a lip liner! It’s gonna blend so well with your lipstick and make it work for you!☺️
