How to figure out your undertone

Finding a color match when choosing foundation can be really difficult. Some brands have tons of colors, which makes it hard to pick a single shade. If you still haven't discovered your holy grail foundation, your undertone may be the reason.
Most skin has a cool, warm or neutral undertone. If your skin has a pink or blueish hue, then your undertone is cool. If it's more yellow, gold or olive, then you have a warm undertone. To complicate matters even further, skin can also have both, especially if the veins inside your wrist are blue and green. If that's the case, your undertone is neutral.

Instructions
1. When testing foundation, swipe a small amount of product along your jawline, not on your arm. Your face is usually lighter than the rest of your body, and testing on this area will help match your face and neck more effectively.
2. If you're trying to choose between two colors, select one that is slightly darker than your skin tone. Lighter shades often make people look washed out and sickly.
3. If your foundation looks too dark after you apply it, dust a small amount of setting powder over it. The powder will make the foundation look lighter.
Picking the right foundation takes time, so don't get discouraged if you don't find it immediately. The perfect match is out there. You'll find it!
