Hello Jen et al.,

I am currently wearing Meow's Frisky Sphinx. It's a pretty close match to my skin tone although lately I've noticed it looks to red/pink on me. I do have yellow undertones (I'm Asian) but I don't tan easily (I freckle instead). I purchased a sample kit but haven't fully dived into it. When I swatched on my forearm over the white base, I was surprised to see that I might actually be a Warm Gold and not as much Ebony as I thought I might be but my forearm is lighter and more yellow than my face (which has redness/pickness in it naturally). Suggestions on a recipe?

Jen, I sent an email to the address in your signature with a picture of me.

Thank you Jen and forum!
