Help! I can't find right foundation shade!

Hello! I have bad luck with finding the right foundation shade for my face. So far, all of the foundations I have used blend well on my cheeks. However, the foundation has always looked cakey and too light on my forehead and chin. Foundation does not seem to blend well there. Does the store have a way to help me find the right foundation shade?

I tried the color IQ once, and it told me I had a red undertone.  The problem is that my undertone is yellow/olive, and the scanner picked up on the rosacea.  The foundation they suggested came out way too pink when I tried it on.  Color IQ may work for someone without my skin issues though.

 

Good old-fashioned swatching seems to work the best for me.  I was told it was better to match the lighter areas, as you could always warm your face up with bronzer or blush.

If you go into a Sephora, they should be able to help you with a color match and what products should work for you.

 

Take care

Look up Lisa Eldridge on YouTube, her tips on how to find the right foundation shade to match your face and neck is fantastic!

Did you try liquid?  I find it blends better overall. If you have a Sephora close by I'd suggest going in and getting samples. The staff should be able to help you.  That's how I found a new foundation last year. =)
