Choosing the right foundation colour can be a nightmare and even after you finally find one that you love, if you have to change brands for whatever reason you will have to start the process all over again.
It is important you choose a colour that blends well and isn't darker than your skin tone, so follow these three simple steps to help you choose the right foundation:
Ask for help
Either bring someone with you or ask the sales assistant for help. What you might consider a suitable colour for your skin, someone else might not - it’s always good to get a second opinion.
Test on your jawline
Don’t test the shade on your hand as it is darker than the skin on your face. Instead go for your jawline where it should blend in perfectly.
Ask for testers
It is hard to determine the right shade under the harsh shop lights, so ask for various testers to take home with you. This is a really good way to get the right shade and not have to spend a fortune buying colours that don’t work.
