The most essential part of every makeup application starts with your face. Your brows may be flawless but if you’re wearing the wrong foundation shade, that's what people will notice first. So how do you ensure you're selecting the right shade? The first step is figuring out your skin's undertones. Sometimes it's easy, other times it's more difficult. Thankfully, there are tricks to help you figure it out.
Try the undertone test to determine if you have warm, cool or neutral undertones. If your skin tans easily, chances are you have warm undertones (yellow or olive), conversely if you burn easily in the sun, chances are you have cool (pink) undertones. Another easy trick? Look at the veins on your wrist, if they're blue you're cool toned, if they're green you're warm toned and if they're too close to tell then you have neutral undertones.
Now that you know your skin's undertones, it's time to select the best face makeup for your skin type. If you have oily skin, you wouldn't wear the same moisturizer as someone with dry skin, same rule of thumb goes for your face makeup. If your skin is oily, look for an oil-free formula with a matte finish, this will control excess oil to keep your complexion shine- free; this is also the best option for acne-prone skin. If your skin is dry, look for a moisturizing liquid foundation or a cream-to-powder formula that won't look caked on. Normal skin types benefit from powder formulas. From here, select the proper coverage needed for your skin. Use a BB or CC cream if you want a natural, barely there makeup look and if you need more coverage, seek out a long-wearing formula with full coverage.
