Finding the right foundation shade can be challenging unless you have a perfect relationship with your local beauty supply store. Most women have experienced the cringe-worthy moment of putting on foundation and realizing it is too light or dark. If this happens to you often, you may be wearing the wrong foundation shade.
Here is how to know you are not wearing the right foundation shade.
One of the first and most obvious signs that you are wearing the wrong foundation shade is when the color does not match your skin. If your foundation is too light, it will give you an ashy or grey appearance. If your foundation is too dark, it will make you look muddy or give you a reverse panda effect. The right foundation shade will melt into your skin and look like a second skin.
Another way to tell that you are wearing the wrong foundation shade is when the texture does not match your skin. If you have dry skin, you will want to stay away from matte foundations or have a powdery finish. These foundations will accentuate dry patches and make lines and wrinkles more visible.
If you have oily skin, you will want to stay away from too creamy foundations or have a dewy finish. These types of foundations will make your skin look greasy.
The finish of your foundation is just as important as the color and texture. If you have a very natural makeup look, you will want to stay away from foundations with a high-shine or glittery finish. These types of foundation can make your skin look oily and accentuate imperfections. If you have a very glam makeup look, you will want to stay away from foundations with a dull or flat finish.
The best way to find the right foundation shade is to go to a beauty counter and get color-matched by a professional. They will be able to find the perfect shade for your skin tone, texture, and finish.
