Have you ever wondered why skincare foundation comes in different colors? Choosing the right shade for your skin tone can be confusing, especially if you are new to makeup. However, there is a good reason for the variety of colors available. Let’s explore a bit of the science behind the different shades and how to choose the right one for you.
Skin Shades and Undertones
The first thing to understand is that our skin contains melanin, which gives it its color. People with darker skin have more melanin, while those with lighter skin have less. When it comes to foundation, the goal is to find a shade that matches your skin tone as closely as possible. This can be tricky because there are many different shades and undertones to consider.
Undertones are the subtle colors that can be seen beneath the surface of your skin. They can be warm (yellow or golden), cool (pink or blue) or neutral (a mix of warm and cool). To determine your undertone, look at the veins on the inside of your wrist. If they appear blue, you have cool undertones. If they appear green, you have warm undertones. If they appear blue-green, you have neutral undertones.
Once you have determined your undertone, you can start looking for a foundation that matches. The best way to do this is to test the foundation on your jawline in natural light. The shade that disappears into your skin is the right one for you. It is important to remember that your skin tone can change throughout the year, so you may need to adjust your foundation shade accordingly.
In addition to matching your skin tone, a foundation can also provide other benefits for your skin. Oxygenetix Foundation is available in seven different colors from the ParsaMD online store.
