Find your perfect foundation in 5 easy steps with Maybelline makeup artist Grace Lee.
1. Know your tone (fair, light, medium, tan or rich) and undertone (warm, cool or neutral). Tip: If your wrist veins appear greenish, you’re warm; if they’re blue, you’re cool. 2. Swipe the foundation along your jawline and neck, which is typically lighter. The right shade should disappear into your skin. 3. Go outside and check it. Tip: If the shade is too light, you’ll appear chalky. 4. Apply with a flat-topped brush with synthetic bristles so the foundation isn’t absorbed into the brush. 5. Buff in a circular motion from the centre of your face outward.
