pink based foundation
i have pale fair skin. after a lot of trials and errors i have realised i am not warm toned.. but i may be a neutral. i think my undertonesare cool/pink and overtone is warm yellowish.
for a lot of time i have been using yellow based foundations only to realise it was making my face horrendously yellow. like i have literal yellow skin! i was confused why that was happening because from what i can see my colour looks pretty much warm like most indian beauties.
after reading and reearching a lot , i realised that sometimes your overtones differ your undertones. but a foundation should NEVER be matched to your overtones and u should ALWAYS make sure that u match it with the undertone of your skin.
it made a whole lot sense to me because.
a) yellow based ones wernt making me look right but overtly yellow,
b) neutral beige ones worked very well.( as beige and neutral tones are like chameleon , they adapt and take shades of ur under and over tones)
e.g. iv been using bourjois foundations which work well for my oily skin, plus they are mostly beige based.. but STILL their beiges are more on the yellow side. so although iv been most satisfactory with this particular brand. it still makes me look a ‘bit’ yellow
c) i was extremely happy with pink based compact that maybelline used to make in dark blue packaging.before they started making those whitestay uv compacts.
i had another pink based foundation from a german brand (i think) from ‘makeup factory’.
the former is discontinued and the latter i cant get hold of in bombay anymore
these pink based ones didnt make my skin look neither pink nor yellow. they looked just right and brought out the inner radiance of my skin. and looked like a perfect match for my colour.
pheww i know its a long post but my question is i just cant find pink based foundations here. not that i have tried many but whenever i went on a search swatching foundations almost every company had yellow based.
can anyone suggest me a good pink based foundation if they know about any? which company makes it.? as url know how desperate i am to get one, price is not an issue.
