A Fool-Proof Way to Better Determine Your Right Shade of Foundation

This beauty knows the secret of a perfectly matched complexion.

Foundation can be a tricky cosmetic to buy when shopping in person and even harder online when you only have screen shots instead of the actual product to evaluate.  Some people feel trying a few shades of the foundation on their face in a few stripes before gently blending in is the best way to find your closest match. However, they would be mistaken since the face is usually darker than your neck that has paler skin.  

Ask yourself how many times have you seen women on television with browner faces against white necks. Unless you want to look as if your face is one color and your neck another, then I have a helpful tip you need to try.

When sampling foundations, I suggest comparing a few shades on your neck just below your chin.  This area is where your skin is the lightest and free from sun exposure.  After all, your goal is to get your face and neck the same continuous color—not mix-matched.  Therefore, by aiming for a foundation color to match the lightest skin you have will give you the best results for the most natural look possible!
