Factors Affecting Color Matching
When it comes to finding the perfect makeup shade for you, there are several factors that I consider which can affect how well it matches your skin tone.
Understanding your skin undertone is crucial in determining the right makeup shades for you. The undertone of your skin refers to the subtle hue underneath the surface of your skin, which can be categorized into three types: warm, cool, or neutral.
To determine your skin undertones, you can look at the veins on your wrist. If your veins appear blue or purple, then you have cool undertones. If they appear green, then you have warm undertones. If you cannot tell whether your veins are blue or green, that means you have neutral undertones.
Another way to identify your skin undertones is by examining the color of your skin in natural light. If your skin appears pinkish or bluish, then you have cool undertones. If it appears yellowish or golden, then you have warm undertones.
Why Knowing the Skin Undertone is Important?
The foundation of achieving a flawless makeup lies in understanding your skin undertones. For example, if you have cool undertones, you should choose main and brightening shades that have blue or pink undertones such as Versailles, June, Athens.
If you have warm undertones, you should choose makeup shades that have yellow or golden undertones such as Linen, Amber, Sunlit, Wheat, Mango. If you have neutral undertones, you can wear neutral shades like Moonlit, White Peach, Candlelit, Sandy.
Another factor that can influence color matching is your selfie photo. Don’t worry, your photo is confidential and safe with me. They won’t be shared without your permission. So, when taking a selfie photo for color matching purposes, it’s crucial to consider several things.
The first thing to keep in mind when taking selfie is lighting. Make sure that the lighting conditions are ideal when taking your selfie because different types of light can affect the colors in your image differently. For instance, when you take your selfie in artificial lighting, you may not get the truest representation of your skin color.
Natural lighting gives the most accurate photo for a color match, however, selfie should not be taken with direct sunlight. The most ideal lighting condition for a selfie photo is to take one indoor while facing a window about 3 feet away.
Another important factor to consider when using a selfie for color matching is the camera settings used when taking the picture. Some cameras have features that automatically adjust white balance and exposure levels- these features could potentially alter the colors in your image. Ensure camera filters are turned off.
Wearing makeup in your selfie can actually mask the true color of your skin. Foundation especially can change the look of your complexion and make it hard to find the right shade match. By going makeup-free, I’ll be able to see your natural undertones so I can find a foundation that truly matches your skin.
Your skin’s condition is also a crucial factor in color matching. If you have blemishes, redness, or an uneven skin tone, I can recommend color correctors to even out complexion prior to makeup application.
Also, if your skin is oily, I have can suggest products to control oil. And if it is dry, I’ll provide ways to battle dryness and make sure cream makeup work for you.
Finally, your personal preferences can also play a role in color matching. You may prefer a more natural or dramatic or bold look. Some women wants their makeup to be subtle, while others want it to show. I can also suggest eyeshadow colors that will compliment your natural eye color. But ultimately, your personal preference is at play when I color match you.
So there you have it! Now you know why color matching is so important and how Seint’s color match quiz can help you find your perfect shade.
By understanding your skin undertones and considering factors such as selfie lighting and personal preferences, I can make a color recommendation that will work for you.
