We love Elizabeth Arden’s Global Makeup Artist, Rebecca Restrepo because she breaks down how to find the right foundation for your skin tone into simple, easy steps.
“Before you pick out a foundation, you have to know your skin’s undertone. Look at the veins in your wrist in natural light—if they appear blue or purple, you have cool undertones; green or olive, you have warm undertones.”
Once you’ve determined what your undertone is, Rebecca recommends testing foundation on your face – not your hand –and in natural light for the best color match.
From the available 18 shades of Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Perfectly Satin 24HR Foundation , Rebecca has outlined below your perfect shade for your skin tone:
Based on your undertone, try: Alabaster, Soft Shell or Cream Nude
Based on your undertone, try: Sun Beige, Cream, Golden Sands, Beige, Sand, Cameo or Neutral Bisque
Based on your undertone, try: Honey Beige, Toasty Beige or Bisque
