Powder Foundation Color Guide

We have streamlined our powder foundation colors to 9 perfect shades that blend easy and match a wide range of skin tones. We understand how color matching foundation can be super tricky, especially when shopping online, so we created the guide below to make it as painless as possible. Let's begin finding your perfect powder match.

STEP 1: DETERMINE WHAT YOUR SKIN UNDERTONE IS (COOL, NEUTRAL OR WARM)

 Cool: You may have pink, bluish-red or ruddy cool undertones. You will tend to burn easily in the sun and tan minimally or not at all. You may tend to get flush cheeks easier. If you look on the underside of your wrist, your veins will appear blue to purple. You may also tend to look better wearing blues, pinks, reds and purples. You will choose from Foundation Colors: Cool Light, Cool Medium and Cool Dark 

Neutral: These skin tones have no obvious color of yellow/olive or pink/red. You tend to be able to wear different shades of foundation and easily find a match. You also tend to look great in many different colored clothing options. You will have a hard time deciphering  between blue or green vein color on the inside of your wrist. We recommend people with excessively red tones or rosacea to use our neutral tones as it tends to diminish the redness. You will choose from Foundation Colors: Neutral Light, Neutral Medium and Neutral Dark 

Warm: You will most likely have a yellow to olive color undertone. You tan easily and rarely burn. The veins on the inside of your wrist appear green. You tend to look better in warmer colors such as browns, yellow, orange, gold and copper. You will choose from Foundation Colors Warm Light, Warm Medium and Warm Dark
