Every foundation I ever tried was orange!

Hey everyone!

I am always on the lookout for new foundations to try, but whenever I get the product, it is orange! This happens with warm, neutral, and even cool shades. 
It’s not even that I have cool undertones, I have green looking veins, tan, and orange lip gloss looks great on me. But why does every foundation I try do that? This is still a problem when I buy from inclusive brands like Fenty and Haus Labs.

Does anyone have recommendations for complexion products that don’t run super orange?

Re: Every foundation I ever tried was orange!

Hey @Sam013 , I remember you asked a similar question... Have you tried using a blue color corrector at all?  It should help cancel out the orange based on color theory.  There aren't a lot of olive foundations (although I'm seeing the wording more in descriptions) and depending on their base mix, a neutral foundation might still lean towards orange or yellow.

sorry, I forgot 😅, it’s been a while…

I’ll definitely get that color corrector!

@Sam013, hope it helps and NP!


Also @DavidBD , one of the Sephora Beauty Directors, did a great video with Natasha about medium and olive tones on the Sephora YouTube channel.



It's called Foundation Matching for Medium and Olive Skin tones if you want to check it out.
