The skin subton influences much the choice of the foundation. To identify the undertones of the skin, take a look at the veins from the wrist. If you notice a blue or purple color, the skin has cold subtones. If the vein color is green or olive, the skin has warm subtones. If there are blue veins and green veins, we are dealing with a skin with neutral subton.
Each of these subton may be lighter or darker. Before choosing the foundation, to decide the subtone, test it on your wrist, and the area between your neck and face. Concealer must have the same tone but for extra brightness in the eye area it can be chosen with half a shade lighter than the face. The powder has a role to fix, so it does not have to change the color of your skin.
For those that require color uniformity, an appropriate primer will be used:
- for a pale tan, a pink peach primer will be used to restore vitality;
- for a cuperose skin a yellow-green primer will be used to neutralize redness;
- brownish spots or sunspots are indicated for a lilac primer. It has the role of neutralizing the maroon and restoring brightness.
