So, I have decided to start to be more consistent with my posting, so along with my makeup vids, which I will be doing twice a week, I wanted to give you lovies a beauty tip of the week, as well. With all that said, the beauty tip of the week is…drum roll please…Make sure you know your skin’s undertone. Now, this might sound weird, why would you need to know your undertone?? Well, this is very important in choosing the right foundation shade. Foundation is the most crucial part of a makeup application that, without the proper knowledge, can be easily messed up. Now, there are three types of skintones; warm, neutral, and cool. Warm skintones are those that show reds or oranges through the color of the skin. Neutral skintones are those that are olive or yellow. Lastly, cool skintones are those that show blues or purples through the skin. Can you guess with one I am??
The reason this is important is because you want to choose the right foundation shade that will not make you look too ashy or too tan. I remember when I was first learning about foundation, I purchased a shade that was, now that I know, a cool tone, which I am not. I am neutral (a mix between cool and warm…sucks trying to find the right shade…). Anyway, finding the right foundation shade is a crucial step in makeup application because it is the “foundation” for the rest of your makeup look, so choose wisely!
