To find a foundation that works for you, you need to make sure to buy one that best matches your skin tone. To get that just-right shade, here are some suggestions:

Test the color. Place the foundation along your jawline, not on your hand like you might have been told in the past because your hand may yield a different color than your face. If the color blends seamlessly, it’s a winner!

Get samples. If possible, take home samples to try out in a few shades that appear to closely match your skin tone. (Cosmetic counters in department stores will often offer a variety of samples for you to take home and test).

Mix shades. Sometimes you may find that you need to mix two shades in order to create on that best matches your skin tone.

Step into the sun. See yourself with the foundation on in natural light to make sure it’s the right shade. It’s also a good idea to apply your foundation next to window that lets in natural light for that same reason.

Adjust the shade. The shade of foundation you choose may alter every few months based on the season and your daily exposure to sunlight so buy according to the season.

Lastly, we always recommend applying your foundation with the proper brush such as the F80 (best-seller!), F82or F60
