Discover Your Undertone: New Year's Makeup Resolution

We all know that during the holidays season, the makeup game gets stepped up. Not to mention that the last couple of years, the hunger for knowledge (even within the average consumer) has grown tremendously and everyone wants FLAWLESS & long lasting makeup! Your "New Year's Resolution" should consist of discovering your undertone.

Having said that, it is important to be able to choose your foundations, because they set the base of how your makeup will look at the end of any application.

Face it: A great foundation is a must for flawless-looking skin, but it's tricky to get it right. Only 15 percent of women choose the correct shade if the appropriate tools aren't provided. And color is just one piece of the puzzle. From tinted moisturizers to loose powders, there are countless formulas and finishes and different techniques for applying them.

Take the guesswork out of finding the perfect foundation shade. True Match™ offers super blendable, true-to-you shades that precisely match your skin’s texture and tone for flawless results every time. With 33 shades, here’s the secret to finding the one that’s best for you:

Determine Your Skin Tone

First, you want to determine your skin tone. It’s the natural color of your complexion that falls into a range from fair to deep. There are seven possible tones: 1. fair 2. fair light 3. light 4. light medium 5. medium 6. medium deep 7. deep To determine yours, focus on the area of your face near the jaw line and not the cheek because the latter tends to be a bit more pigmented and less reflective of your true tone.

Find Your Undertone

The undertone is the hint of color under your skin, which makes your skin unique. If you receive the most compliments when you wear shades of brown, dark green, and orange, your undertone is warm. If you receive the most compliments when you wear pink, rose, or pastel shades, your undertone is cool. If you receive compliments across a variety of shades, your undertone is neutral.

The Perfect Combination

Together your skin tone and undertone determine your True Match™, making it simple to find the shade that’s right for you. Remember: your skin tone can change with the seasons and with age, so you may need to update your foundation from time to time to make sure the shade is true to you.

The Right Application

To even out skin tone and imperfections, use your middle finger to apply product only where you need it, most likely along the t-zone and any trouble spots. Remember: you don’t need a lot of product, so use sparingly. You can always apply more later. If you need additional coverage in specific areas, reach for True Match™ Concealer and apply it after foundation, not before. 

Add a Healthy Glow

Dust on True Match™ Blush to add a fresh, healthy, natural-looking glow. Brush it on places where the sun normally kisses your face, like your forehead, cheeks, and the bridge of your nose. For a burst of color, sweep it across eyelids when you’re on the go. 

Complete Your Look  

To keep shine at bay, set your look with a sweep of True Match™ Powder. Apply to the t-zone area, like the forehead, chin, and cheeks, and blend out. This final finish helps your look last. Or use it for quick touch-ups during the day to keep skin looking fresh.

Be Good to Your Skin

True Match™ is an ultrapure formula designed to actually nourish skin. It’s packed with vitamins B and E, and glycerin to keep skin healthy and vibrant. Because it contains no oils or fragrances, it won’t clog your pores, so skin will stay looking fresh and vibrant.
