Analyzing Your
Coloring and Find
Your Tone

Cosmetic Colors

Except from knowing your actual skin type (oily, dry, combo, damaged, ect), true tonal coloring is the most important factor when it comes to using cosmetics effectively and hen using them to make the most of every feature and help concealing the worst. Once you acquire this knowledge, the rest is a walk in the park!

To achieve a perfect canvas setting, one must choose a foundation shade that closely resembles or matches exactly their own natural coloring.  Nobody's skin is identical, but we do all have one thing in common. That one thing is that we all fall into is distinct groups of color tones. The color groups we will touch on into some detail are cool tones and warm tones. We will also briefly cover peach/orange tones, light olive neutrals and complete neutrals.
Foundation Shades - When choosing a foundation shade, it is best to check the chosen foundation color by being in natural light (outside) and rubbing a small amount onto a patch of clean skin along your jaw line. Testing foundation along the jaw line and in natural lighting will ensure that your shade choice of foundation is best matched. You may also want to let the foundation color settle for a few minutes as some colors may noticeably change color, particularly those with really oily skin. Please be sure to take advantage of our sampling. Using samples is a cheaper, more fun way to find out what works for you.

Choosing Color Cosmetics Right For Your Tone - Once you have nailed down your tone, color choosing is the next step. Choosing carefully will ensure your look is natural and glowing.
