How to find your perfect foundation shade...

Posted by MoMineral UK on


Finding your perfect foundation shade match can seem like a struggle, but Mo’Mineral Makeup can help you!

Our foundation shades are categorized into four groups, Light Tan, Medium Tan, Dark Tan, and Deep Tan. The shades are specially formulated to beautifully match dark and ‘melanin-rich’ skin tones. 

Browse our website to see images of women wearing our shades to determine which group will contain your match.

Purchase one of our sample sets from your chosen category using our website. (Our sample sets are £5.00 and also contain a sample shade of your choice from our array of gorgeous mineral blush colours).

Set out your sample pots on a flat surface in the same order that you intend to apply the swatches. This step is important for when you refer back to the samples later.

Using a cotton bud or a small brush, apply three separate and distinct stripes of the foundation, one for each shade, across your cheek and jawline. Make sure the length of the stripes include your neck, as your perfect foundation shade should blend harmoniously into both your face and neck. Overall, with foundation your face and neck shouldn’t appear to have two distinctly different shades – they should match.

See the photo below for an example.

Leave the foundation swatches for a few minutes, to allow your skin to warm the product.

Taking a mirror with you, stand in the most natural, neutral lighting you can find and study the swatches. One of the shades will appear to have blended the most with your skin tone, and the undertones of the powder will match with those present in your skin. This is your foundation shade.

Refer back to the sample pots you have laid out in a specific order. Look at the bottom of the sample pot that corresponds with the swatch to discover the name of your foundation shade.

See how the shade in the middle has warm undertones and has already begun to blend nicely into the skin.
