STEP 1: FINDING YOUR UNDERTONE
The 4 colour groups that we have throughout all our foundations are NW, N, NC and C. These stand for: Neutral Warm, Neutral, Neutral Cool and Cool.
To find out if you’re more rosy or golden, you can take a picture of yourself in natural light with no make-up on. Blur the photo out using your phone – this will leave you with a general all-over tone. You may find that some parts of the skin are golden, but the majority is pink and vice versa – go with the colour you see the most.
STEP 2: CHOOSING YOUR SHADE
Once you’ve decided on your undertone, you can use our shade finder below to figure out which shade number you may be. Simply select your skin tone, choose your undertone, and meet your shade match.
