Finding the perfect shade of foundation is a struggle that many women know too well. This is in large part because it isn’t just about light and dark. To get a perfect match you also need to consider your skin’s undertones.

And here’s an easy trick to determine your skin’s undertone – look at your veins.

  •  If your veins are green, that means you have a lot of olive, yellow, and golden tones in your skin, so your foundation shades should have similar tones.

  • If your veins are blue and red, that means you have a lot of pink, red, and brown undertones, so your foundation should have similar tones.

To test the tone of the foundation swipe it along your jawline, where you’ll find your skin’s natural tone, and choose the shade which blends most closely with your natural tone.
