Summer Foundations & Undertones

Happy Wednesday Beauties!

Today’s post is all about finding the perfect shade for changing undertones in the Summer months. Yesterday, I did a poll on my instastory and the majority voted that you experience some skin tone changes during the summer seasons. Of course with that change, depending on how much your shade darkens in the summer, can cause a major difference in your foundation shade.

During the Summer, I always go a shade darker to avoid an ashy look. My go to brand and shade is the Covergirl Queen Collection Sand for summer. This shade is perfect and allows me to still use my under eye correctors and highlight without looking like I have on baby powder for a foundation!

My undertone is red, and that means my undertone falls under the cool category. When finding the right foundation shade for any season, the first thing you should know is your undertone shade. There are three categories:

•Cool(pink, red or blue undertones)

•Warm( yellow or golden undertones)

•Neutral( is a combination of both)

If you’re not sure of your undertone shade, there are several simple at home test that you can take. I will post the information at the end of this post. Also know that you can be the same shade as someone else and have a different undertone shade which will cause the foundation to look different on both individuals.

Here’s a quick tip: if you’re foundation looks ashy on your skin that is an indication that you need to go darker. If your foundation looks muddy like, then you should go lighter.

I hope this guide helps you beauties find that perfect summer shade! If you have any questions feel free to leave a comment or send me an email.
