It can be quite difficult to find the right foundation shade, given all the different shades and tones available, also the change of the skin tone between the seasons.
Therefore, it is wise to buy a new foundation and a fixing powder when you have been sun-kissed!
The first thing that's good to know is what kind of undertone you have; (1) neutral, (2)warm or (3) cold undertone.
When you know what kind of undertone you have, it's time to find out your shade. We have ten shades to choose from and you see what you have by looking at your skin.

By now you should have a fairly good idea of what shade you would have, but it is always best to try your new shade directly on the skin. You do this by taking three different shades that you think would fit, then you apply every one with a smaller brush (like our concealer brush) or with your finger on the bottom part of your cheek. Put three lines next to each other. The shade that suits you the best, is the shade that naturally mixes in with your skin tone and is barely visible!
You can choose between powder foundation or liquid foundation depending on your own taste and preference.
But generally the powder foundation is better suited for a sensitive skin type while the liquid foundations fits a more dry skin that needs more moisturizing effects.
