STEP 1: FIND YOUR UNDERTONE
The 4 colour groups that we have throughout all our foundations are NW, N, NC and C. These stand for: Neutral Warm, Neutral, Neutral Cool and Cool.
To find out if you’re more rosy or golden, you can take a picture of yourself in natural light with no make-up on. Blur the photo out using your phone – this will leave you with a general all-over tone. You may find that some parts of the skin are golden, but the majority is pink and vice versa – go with the colour you see the most.
ROSYThis falls under our NW and N shades, you could also describe them as rich, warm, copper and mahogany.
GOLDENNC and C are considered golden, but you can also describe them as caramel, champagne tones and tan shades.
STEP 2: CHOOSE YOUR SHADE
