Foundation - finding your color!
Hi girls! So I wanted to make a quick ramble on foundation, because I hate seeing those girls who look like one of those dancing men from williwonker, you know.. with the orange faces? It really is not that hard to match yourself with foundation, so please don't be one of those teenagers that look like a pumpkin - bad bad bad.

So, are you warm, or are you cool or both(?)

  1. A pale, rosy, ebony, or dark-red cast to skin usually indicates that you have a cool tone.
  2. yellow, golden, and honey tones usually lend themselves to a warm undertone.
  3. If you have a blend of both, or are more olive toned, then you have a neutral undertone to your skin.
Still having trouble deciding what your tone is? Then take a look at your eye color. If you have blue or green eyes, then there's a good chance you have a cool tone to your skin. Do you have warm brown eyes, or hazel? Then it's more likely you have a warm tone.

~Finding your color foundation~
You are never going to find your exact color, but that is a positive because why would you put the exsact same 'skin' on the skin you are trying to cover up, right? yeah, so look for a foundation that is very similar to your skin tone, you want it to blend and look natural, you dont want to look like anyone of Jersy shore *cough* Snookie.
Always test your foundation before applying, make sure you purchase or try a sample before buying! When you do try it, try it on your chest area, you want your face to be the same color as your neck and chest right? Cuz' if you have a fake tan, you want your foundation to match your tan, right?
I hope this post kinda help you, its just short but its everything I know about foundation! Always make sure you find something that isint too oily/dry for your skin, find something perfect and if it isint, try something else, there is no harm in that. :)

Hmm, I'm a mixture between cool and warm. My dad has very cool skin, as he has very olive green eyes. And my mum is very warm.

And, considering my eyes are a light brown-hazelish color mixed with a bit of amber and dark brown with a dark as hell circle around them.. Mine's both. Hehe.

I'm a bout a mixture of the last photo, and the one before it, and the first one, I have an olive-ish light complexion. But, people tell me I don't really need much make up...

Have any tips? I'm not much of a makeup girl, and it's good that people tell me I don't need much. I like black as a makeup color, it's very pretty, and I love wearing it as clothing, especially with skulls, and in stripes.
