Tanned Forehead

My forehead is way darker than the rest of my face. If I match my foundation to my forehead tan, my skin is too dark to match my body. But if I match to my natural skin tone (aka the part of my face that matches the rest of my body), my forehead turns an ugly gray. Not putting on foundation makes it look weird like my skin is cut into two different skin tones and I do have blemishes on my forehead I would like to put makeup on. But buying 2 different foundation shades would be annoying. I wear makeup pretty much daily but having two different foundations is time-consuming in my routine and can be very costly. I am not ready to try any chemical/damaging procedures, and I've tried pretty much every natural way of removing a tan. What do I do?


RE: Tanned Forehead

I would say try matching foundation to your body, then use a bronzer on your forehead to warm up the color. You could also try a foundation with a more golden undertone, which would keep your forehead from looking ashy even if it’s lighter.
