Picking out a foundation is tricky, and can be nerve-wracking. The first thing you want think about is whether or not your skin has cool or warm undertones. How do you figure it out? It’s easy!
Think about how your skin looks in the winter. Does it look more pale or have some hints of pink/red? Chances are you have cool toned skin. If you have warm undertones in your skin, your skin will stay more of an olive/bronze color in the colder months.
Now I want you to think of your skin in the summer. When you’re out in the sun with SPF 15, does your skin burn or does it turn into a tan? If you burn easily, you likely have cool undertones. If you turn into a glowing goddess (lucky you!), you probably have warm undertones. Don’t forget! If you’re not sure, go to your nearest makeup counter, and ask them what they think. It always helps to get a second opinion.
