Now I know it's so difficult and confusing finding the right beauty products suitable for your skin, when you have hundreds of options out there. And let's not even get into how time-consuming it is when you don't have a slightest idea of which ones to actually own and which to skip.
The best way to do so is to stick to a group of colors that go well with your skin shade. Here, I've listed some quick points you ought to keep in mind while you walk through the never-ending cosmetic counter!
Foundation: When it comes to your foundation, one must always be aware of their shade and complexion. If this sounds complicated to you, I'll tell you how to check. Observe the area of your face near your jaw line. Also your undertones, You can check your wrist veins and if you spot green veins you're warm undertone and if blue then you're cool undertone. Incase you find both, you're neutral. When you go for your foundation shopping, always check the shade on your forehead or jawline. see if it blends well with your skin and isn't too fair or too dark.
Blush: Pick a blush that will blend well with your skin tone and compliments it rather than making it look too artificial and streaky.
Dark Skin - Shades in plum, Burnt orange / bronze shades.
Medium Skin - Apricot, coral or peach shades.
Fair - Pinks, rose , peaches.
Eyes: Any basic eye shadow palette would work. ( That can be as per choice )
Lips: I am always asked more about which lip shades should be chosen according to the skin. This has been complicated for most of us.
Large lips - Can wear any shade, dark as well as light. But extremely bright colors need to be avoided as they make the lips look even more bigger.
To define the lips, one can use a Lip pencil.
Small Lips - Light colors that tend to give you volumizing effect. Dark colors would make them look more smaller. A Lip pencil can be used to make the lips look a little big but make sure you don't overdo it.
I believe one can always try to experiment with Lip shades and select what suits you the best.
So this was a brief knowledge on how to pick the right products depending on the skin tones. Every skin has its own beautiful shades and hues so one must avoid trying to change the skin shade with foundations too fair or too dark for you. Also, do not go and get whatever trendy stuff is available out there. Try to go through some reviews about the product you wish to invest in or it just stays unused in your wardrobe.
Pick and choose what works for you and your budget. This combination will save you money as well as round out your Makeup collection. Also, in my opinion you must consult a Makeup Artist to guide you through more details into this.
