There is no end to drawbacks if you are careless about the shade of your foundation.

A perfect makeup look is all about being technically smart with the brushes and cosmetics you choose for your skin. Before everything, you have to test your skin tone first. Now, let’s discover how to pick up the perfect foundation shade according to your skin complexion.

Skin tones are primarily distinguished into 3 main categories – light, medium, and deep. Under medium we have several shades like beige, tan, honey, etc. so, undergo the following tests to explore which category you fall under as that will help you choose the right shade of foundation always.

  • THE WRIST TEST – The color of your veins can be a great help to determine your skin tone perfectly. If you have bluish veins, then you belong to the cool category.
