Want to find out which colours suit you? Mandy Garcia, Gorgeous Cosmetics make-up artist has some tips.
"I always like to first determine if you have yellow or pink undertones. Something I definitely like to do is first start with a neutral foundation (N) in any number that is closest to your shade (1-5). From there, I can see if I have to go with something more beige (B) or yellow (Y). Once that undertone has been determined, I like to take three shades to see what best matches the skin. I like to put a swipe of each colour on the jawline and try to get as close to natural light as possible. When it comes to foundations or powders though, sometimes the seasons can influence. For example, our skin tone can deepen in the summer and get lighter in winter, which may call for an updated colour match on our complexion items!"
If you find yourself in a make-up rut, she suggests that "you can subtly change a make-up look without having to re-vamp your entire make-up collection. Try a pop of coloured eye liner for a twist! One small change can make you feel like a new you and not have to break the bank in the meantime."
