How to match foundation to skin tone

How to match foundation to skin tone

How to match foundation to skin tone, Imagine you’re on a hunt for the perfect foundation, lip color, or blush shade — and you find it! The texture, formula, and depth of color are all that you’d hope for, then you put it on, and everything goes completely out the window. The best-laid plans fall flat, the color is completely off! “What happened? I had everything right!” you may be thinking, then you take another look, and you notice three words: Neutral, Warm, and Cool.

You may be wondering, what does it all mean, and how does it affect not only my foundation shade choice but also my lip shade and cheek shade choices? The trick is learning how to match foundation to skin tone.

What Are Undertones?

Neutral, warm, and cool represent your undertone. Your undertone is just as important as your surface tone. The undertone represents the color from underneath the surface of your skin that affects your overall hue. There are three undertones – neutral, warm, and cool.

Neutral undertones have a mix of cool and warm undertones which means they can comfortably vacillate between blue-based shades and orange-based shades.

A warm undertone is more peachy, golden, or yellow therefore warmer undertones look better in warmer shades such as orange-based reds, corals, and golds.

A cool undertone is generally associated with skin that has hints of blue or pink. The best makeup for cool undertones include shades like bluer-based reds, pinks, or purples.

How to Find My Undertone

The next question you may be asking is how do I determine my undertone?

Here are three methods that are commonly used:

  • The vein method. Start by looking at the veins on the inside of your wrist. If your veins look blue, you have cool undertones. If your veins look green, then you’re warm. If you are neutral, this technique may prove to be more difficult since you have a mixture of both cool and warm. The vein method can be a bit challenging so trying out one or both the following methods may be easier.
  • The white fabric method. This method includes holding up a piece of white fabric and an off-white fabric to your face. If you look better in white, you have a warm undertone, whereas if you look better in off-white or look washed out in white, you have a cool undertone. If both look good, you’re neutral.
  • The jewelry selection method. This may be the fastest way of all. Typically, cooler undertones look better in silver and warmer undertones better in gold, whereas neutral undertones can look great in both.

One thing to be cautious about is not to confuse depth of skin tone with undertone. Even the fairest skin can have warm undertones, and darker skin can have cool ones. Even when tanning, your surface tone may change but undertone never changes.

Hopefully these tips will guide you in the right direction when choosing your makeup essentials and don’t forget to have fun!

All too often makeup artists neglect hands even when they will be part of a shot. Men frequently have red knuckles. Older people have age spots. Cuts and scars are common.

Apply makeup to the hands in exactly the same basic way you apply it to the face. Use concealer to hide blemishes and a light touch of foundation what perfectly matches the skin colour.

Blend very well. If your subject is a man wearing a suit and shirt, apply makeup around the cuff. Of course, don’t get yellow makeup on a white shirt! Place tissues in the cuffs to avoid the risk.Body Makeup Lipstick Makeup Institute

If your subject is a woman, check the nail polish.Ensure that is properly applied.

In some photo shoots, your subject will be revealing more than face and hands. Legs, knees, arms and who knows what else may be photographed. You will encounter challenges.

For example, knees may be darker than the surrounding skin. Shaved areas such as those under the arms may be lighter. “Bikini lines” may show up where areas of skin that have been exposed to the sun meet those that have been covered by clothing.

Body makeup which is more heavily pigmented than face makeup

its typically water and sweat resistant, can work well in these circumstances.

Generally you will want to match the natural skin tone

The No Makeup Makeup Look

The No Makeup Makeup Look

The no makeup makeup look feels like the easiest look to achieve. As we all want to achieve this look, it’s always harder than we think. This look is perfect for summer vacations, days at the beach or when you want to fake the I woke up fresh vibes. Here’s a guide to achieve a flawless no makeup makeup look.

Step 1: Prep your skin by cleansing your face, toner, moisturiser preferably SPF, finally apply your primer.

Step 2: Foundation application is optional. Some people like to skip foundation with this look, while others opt for a lighter or a dewy foundation.

Step 3: Conceal as needed. Just like foundation, concealer isn’t always needed for this look. You can apply concealer in a small amount for the purpose of a brighter effect.

Step 4: Glow with an illuminator. Time to add some shimmer, preferably a cream shimmer. It is totally your option to go with a traditional highlighter. Illuminator gives a subtle lit from within the glow on the whole face. You can apply this creamy illuminator on the whole face and even the body, preferably in a rose gold shade.

Step 5: Eye makeup. For a pretty natural makeup look, choose a cream shadow. Cream shadows are easy to use, just swipe and blend. A rule for creamy eyeshadow, those with oily skin need to use eyeshadow primer for long lasting. Choose a shade that works well with your skin tone, and gives a natural sun kissed look.

Step 6: Blush everywhere. Just like eyeshadow, try using cream blush unless you have an oily skin. Cream blush will diffuse and blend into your skin with a more natural look than a traditional powder well. You can always substitute the cream blush with a cream bronzer.

Step 7: Embrace your natural brows. Less is more when it comes to clean, groomed brows, which is what you want for the no makeup makeup look. Using a brow gel is as easy as it gets. Fill in your brows if needed in a soft technique.

Step 8: Define with mascara. Mascara is the finishing touch to make eyes pop in just the right way.

Step 9: Spritz and Mist. Voila, you’ve created your ultra pretty no makeup makeup look just like a pro.

  • Corrector / concealer: Cover blemishes and dark areas with orange, yellow or peach-toned

  • Eyebrows: Shape the brows with a small amount of brow powder or pencil. If you have a dark hair, use a colour that is one or two tones lighter than the hair colour
  • Eye shadow: Choose three shades of eye shadow: light, medium and dark. Use the dark to line upper lid, thinly, along the lash edge. Use medium shade to cover the remaining part of the eye lid up to the crease
  • Eyeliner: Use cake liner and apply with an angled or fine liner brush, or use a sharpened eyeliner pencil. 
  • Mascara: Black mascara is the best to highlight your lashes. Apply in two thin coats rather than one heavy one
  • Blush: Apply the blush directly on the cheekbones and blend it to the hairline. 
  • Lip liner: Apply lip liner in advance of lip colour as the lip liner helps contain the lipstick, keeps it from feathering, and makes it more durable. 
  • Lipstick: Use a lip brush to apply dark or bright colours since these require very precise application. Add a dot of a gloss to the centre of the bottom lip and then blot

Backstage Professional Beauty 2020

Backstage Professional Beauty 2020

Backstage – 18th of February 2020, The Lipstick Makeup Institute team was in charge of makeup for Jamilla Paul’s session at Professional Beauty 2020.

Our team was in charge of the makeup of 2 beautiful models that embodied high fashion and glamour. The talk was about our experiences as backstage stylists and makeup artists. Making sure that all makeup and hair will be stage ready.

The transition of hair and makeup are very important. We only have a very limited amount of time to do the makeup and hair backstage in between shows. Additionally, the models need to change clothes for the new designer, fix their makeup, and then go out in the runway. 

On top of this, our head trainer and her students were working at the Provoc stand. demonstrating the products and makeup for the guests of Professional Beauty 2020. They were creating beauty looks on guests who were interested in the products for the two days of the event. This is a huge exposure to our students who want to get into the field of makeup. And we are very fortunate to be a part of the Provoc team.

Professional Beauty convention event happens once a year. Basically to showcase new innovations in the beauty industry for professionals and consumers alike. The Lipstick Makeup Institute has been part of this event for a number of years already and it is really good exposure for our students to be a part of it. 

As a student and graduate of The Lipstick Makeup Institute, you’ll be having these experiences with different events. This is rarely done by other makeup schools in Dubai. On the other hand, we believe in our students capabilities, therefore we give them these chances.
