We all love online shopping. I mean, who wouldn’t?

 

You get to buy your favorite makeup and skincare products while in your pajamas, cuddled up in your blanket.

 

Heavy traffic outside? No problem!

 

All you need is your phone and the internet, and you’re good to go.

 

However, some of us struggle in choosing the right shade of certain makeup products online because we can’t see them. Take foundations, for example. You’re used to swatching your foundations to look for your shade, but online, that’s a limitation.

 

This is no cause for concern!

 

If you ever felt like you can never choose the right shade of foundation when online shopping, check out this guide to always get your perfect match!

Know your undertone

Whether you’re buying your foundation online or in a store, you have to determine your undertone first to know which foundation shade is perfect for you. You have to know whether your cool, warm, or neutral-toned so that the foundation you’ll be choosing will match your skin tone. The quickest way to check your undertone is by looking at the veins on your wrist. When they appear blue, that means you have a cool undertone. If they are green, you’re warm. You’ll know if you’re neutral when you see both blue and green.

 

Research if the product oxidizes

With millions of review videos and articles for different makeup and skincare products, you’ll have all you need to research your products before purchasing them. Have you ever experienced putting on foundation that’s a perfect shade for you, but by the time you finish your sultry and smoky eyeshadow makeup, you notice the foundation’s a bit too dark on your skin?

With foundations, some pigments tend to oxidize or go darker a few minutes after application. When your research shows that a particular foundation oxidizes, be sure to go a shade lighter so it will perfectly match your skin tone when you finish your makeup look.

Check your foundation stash

If you already have your perfect shade for certain makeup brands, this can serve as your guide when choosing a foundation while online shopping. You can compare the descriptions of your current foundation shades to the product you want to buy online. If they are similar, you might have found your match! You can check out beauty guide sites such as Findation. You can input your shade on a specific brand, and they will find its match in the brand you want to buy.

 

Follow people with a similar skin tone on social media

Following influencers and beauty vloggers is one of the easiest ways to know whether a product is a must-buy. And when you follow someone with similar skin tone and skin type as yours, it will be really helpful in choosing the right shade for you! All you have to do to find your shade is know what theirs is!

Buy a sample size first

If you’re iffy about committing to a foundation you saw online, you can always buy a sample size in store first to check the shade and to see if it’s working for you. Because online stores often offer discounted prices (and yes we offer discounted prices here at Beauty Wellbeing!), you can buy a sample or travel size in store to know your perfect shade and buy the cheaper alternative full-size product here at Beauty Wellbeing!
