4 simple questions
Let’s jump right in!
1: Check Your Veins
Push your sleeves up and look a the veins on the inside of your wrist. Are they blue or green? If they look blue, you have a cool undertones. If they look greenish, you’re warm.
2: The Jewelry Trick
Think about whether you look better in silver or gold jewelry. Typically the girl with cool undertones look better in silver and platinum metals. Warm-toned women look better in gold. – Fascinating right?
3: The Neutral Test
Think about what neutral shades flatter you best. Does your skin, eyes, and face look better in bright white and black hues? If so you have a cool undertone. If you look better in ivory, off-whites and brownish/tan shades, you are warm.
4: Eyes and Hair Color
Your natural eye and hair colors can help figure out your coloring. Customarily, cool undertones have eyes that are blue, gray or green and have blond, brown or black hair. Warm-toned women usually have brown, amber or hazel eyes with strawberry blond, red, brown or black hair.
Need to know
First I want you to realize that mineral foundation is very forgiving. you can lighten or darken by layering the product on your skin. The wonderful thing is it doesn’t get cakey or heavy. My biggest love of this foundation is I never feel like I’m wearing any! It does a fantastic job of covering and making my skin look absolutely amazing!
I have three shades and use them year round. Lighter in the winter (obviously) and darker in the summer. I have even mixed my cool shade foundation #1 and cool shade foundation #3 to match my in-between spring colored skin.
Savvy Foundation Q&A
Q: How to cover dark circles:
A: Use a lighter foundation shade in this area. If you are using the lightest shade apply thicker in these areas or try the baking method of application – amazing!
Q: What about concealer
A: Use a little extra foundation on areas that need coverage – blemished areas. I use a small brush, mist it with our misting spray, pick up some minerals and paint over the blemish before applying my full face of foundation.
Q: What if I have dry skin
A: If you’re skin is naturally dry this really comes down to what type of moisturizer you are using. You may need to invest in a deeper moisturizer so your skin stay’s well balanced. I have some I highly recommend and if you sign up below I’d be happy to help you find something that works for you!
Basic foundation instructions
- Spray 2-3 pumps of Misting Spray onto a makeup brush and gently wipe off any excess moisture on the back of your hand.

Cool and Warm Shades – can’t really go wrong
Below are pictures of a friend who tried both cool and warm shades. She found she could wear both without an issue though warm is her favorite.
