Mineral Foundation – 4 Key Steps for the Perfect Colour

Mineral makeup has now more than satisfied all its users. It is a good way to protect the skin and enhance it. It doesn't feel like you are wearing makeup.


For a good start, the following 4 steps can help you to find your perfect colour:


Step 1 - Determine Your Mineral Powder/Skin Tone
If you do not know your skin tone, you can estimate it with the following information:

Pink or Cool: Eyes are typically blue or grey. Hair colour typically blonde, brown or black. Skin has definite blue and pinkish undertones. Cool-toned people look best in colours such as blue, red, pink and purple, or "gem-tones". Usually look best in silver jewelry. In natural light, the colour of the veins on the underside of your wrist are bluish. You can wear a white shirt and it is flattering on you.

Neutral: Eyes may be any colour. Hair may be any colour. Skin has unspecifiable undertones, such as pink, olive or yellow. Those with neutral colouring can wear just about any colour clothing and look good. Can wear gold or silver jewelry.

Yellow or Warm: Eyes are typically brown, green or hazel. Hair colour typically brown, black, red, auburn, blonde or strawberry blonde. Skin has yellow/orange or olive undertones. Warm-toned people look best in earthy-toned clothing, such as browns, yellows, oranges, yellowish green and ecru. Look best in gold jewelry. In natural light, the colour of the veins on the underside of your wrist are greenish. You are most flattered by an off-white, cream or ecru shirt.


Step 2 - Determine Your Mineral Makeup Colour/Skin Shade
Not sure of your skin shade? See the following information below:

Fair: You have fairest skin, burns very easily and peels, never tans. You may be very blonde and have pale eyes, or have very dark hair and a porcelain complexion.

Light: Your skin is pale, and usually burns easily, tans rarely. You might be pale in the winter and have a "healthy glow" in the summer.

Medium Light: Those with medium light skin that usually burn first, then tan.

Medium: Your skin is of average tone. Skin burns sometimes followed by peeling, tans easily.

Medium Dark: You always have colour all year round. Skin rarely burns, tans easily.

Dark: Your skin has naturally dark coloured complexions, possibly of Mediterranean or other ethnic descent. You tan very easily and never burn.

Darkest: Your skin tone is noticeably dark, and you tan very easily. You may be of African-American, Latin, or Indian descent.


Step 3 – Test It During Daytime
After learning your own skin tone and shade, the optimal method to test for the ideal colour is to purchase a selection of samples. Apply each shade to your cheek or jaw line during daytime. The correct colour should disappear as it would perfectly compliment your skin.


Step 4 – Check It Under Sunlight
Once you have done that, go outside to check it under sunlight. As the Titanium Oxide within mineral makeup diffuses and reflects sunlight, you might find the chosen shade much darker or lighter outdoors, adjustments then need to be made accordingly.


Further suggestions –
* It is possible to mix the colours in various combinations, creating ideal shades that are perfect for you.
* Using one colour as a base, add the 2nd colour to highlight selected regions.
* You can adjust the proportions of each colour as your skin shade changes throughout the seasons.
