5 Tips For Finding Your Foundation Match

Now that you have a better idea of which shades could work for you, you might want help narrowing things down to find your perfect match. Here are four tips that can help.


1. Try a Tester

The easiest way to ensure you’re buying the perfect shade of foundation is to use a tester at your favorite beauty store. Swatch a few different shades on your own skin to get a better idea of which one is your match by applying it on your jaw and neck to see which shade looks best. Depending on the store, you may also be able to request a sample so you can get an even better idea of what the foundation looks like on your skin.


You can also use the Virtual Makeup Try-On tool to test which shade will look best on you. Select the Age Perfect Makeup Serum Foundation then click the virtual try on button and choose the live try on option or upload a photo (preferably a makeup-less one) to test the foundation live or on a previously taken selfie.


2. Keep Lighting in Mind

In case you didn’t already know, natural lighting is always the best lighting when it comes to makeup. This is because it’s the most accurate way to see what a shade really looks like, as foundations can look completely different under different lighting. After testing your foundation shade in store, be sure to head outside and look in a mirror (or your phone’s camera) to make sure the shade you picked is an actual match.


3. Compare to Foundation You Already Own

When in doubt, it’s always a good idea to use what you have as a jumping-off point. Bring a foundation you currently own (that matches your skin tone) to the store and compare shades swatch to swatch. This will help you narrow down which hues are most similar to the one you already know looks great.


4. Consider the Season

Most people see a slight variation in their skin tones as the seasons change. An easy way to address this is to keep a lighter foundation on hand for cooler months like fall and winter, and a darker foundation that will match your sun-kissed skin come spring and summer.


5. Check Your Undertones

Like we mentioned before, undertones play an important role in finding a foundation match. Undertones refer to the colors that sit under the surface of your skin, and they can impact which shade of foundation will look best on you. There are three types of undertones — warm, cool, and neutral — and the best way to check what yours are is to check your veins.


If the color of your veins lean towards a blueish-purple shade, you have cool undertones. If your veins look to be on the green side, you have warm undertones. If you’re unable to really nail down what color your veins are, that means your undertones are likely neutral.


How to Apply Age Perfect Makeup Serum Foundation

Step 1. Use your fingertip to apply a dot of foundation onto your cheeks, forehead, chin, and nose.

 

Step 2. Grab the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender. Wet the blender and squeeze out the excess water so it’s damp. 

 

Step 3. Bounce the blender over your skin to blend the liquid formula in an outward motion. Add foundation as needed until you reach your desired level of coverage.
