How to Find Your PERFECT Foundation Match!
Bar none, the BEST way to figure out your perfect foundation color is to use the Fitzpatrick scale. This scale indicates how your skin reacts when exposed to UV light and has 6 different levels, each of which has specific characteristics. Find out which level you are by asking yourself, “How does my skin react when I’ve been in the sun?”
Sometimes, you may find that you fall BETWEEN two levels and that’s ok. It simply means you may need to mix 2 different shades of foundation to get your exact match. Or, it can mean that you can get away with wearing a foundation color that fits into one category or the other. The way to know this is to conduct a STRIPE TEST.
