Foundation color question.

Post by Nikkiknight82 » Thu Jun 14, 2018 2:03 pm

Hi everyone, I have very fair skin. I'm usually one or two up from absolute fairest. Ivory or fair. I have really red undertones in my skin so I can never find a good color for me. Can I get a recommendation for which foundation/HD cream foundation/concealer I should try out?

You are probably going to fall in the first 3 shades of Cool HD foundation. Since you are comparing to commercial products, I would guess 20 or 30. I am leaning toward 30, as our fairest shade is fairer than most.

Probably within the first 2 shades of the concealer shade you want. Peach HD for undereyes, regular HD for other things. I am leaning the second from fairest, if I had to pick one.
