Lets talk SKIN UNDERTONES


Whats an undertone? Why is it so important? How do I figure out my undertone? Which foundation best suits my undertone?

All these questions will be answered here by yours truly, professional makeup artist Tiffany Davidson

Question 1: Whats an undertone?
Answer: An undertone is the characteristic colour of skin that is concealed when viewed. Basically its the colour you see underneath your natural (mass tone) skin complexion.

Question 2: Why is it so important?
Answer: Undertones are important to note when choosing liquid, cream and powder foundation since these products are made with these undertones in mind. Some brands when applied give off a red, yellow, or blue undertone. You should choose your foundation based on your undertone our else the foundation will not blend into your skin well.

Question 3: How do I figure out my undertone?
Answer:
Technique 1: View your skin beside other colours, such as yellow, red, blue and purple and see which colour your skin mimics more.
Technique 2: View your skin beside a white background and look closely to see what colour  you can see petruding through your natural skin complexion

Question 4: Which complexion best suits my undertone?
Answer: Various brands cater to various undertones. For example, the Black Opal True Colour Cream to Powder Foundations cater to people with warm undertones (red and yellow) while Revlon ColorStay Liquid Foundation in light colours such as Ivory and Sand caters to cool undertones (blue and purple)

When choosing foundation, always be mindful of your skin type and undertone colour. This way you can choose a foundation that best suits you. You'll look amazing!

I hope this helped!

Daily Skin Care Routine

Hey ladies, I wanted to do a little note about the importance of caring for your skin daily. There are four main stages of care.



1. Cleanse - using a daily FACE cleanser is vital to removing dirt and other impurities from the surface of your skin. Cleansers such as those from St Ives, Clean & Clear or Aveeno can be used.



2. Tone - user a toner such as Witchazel or Astringent is also very important as not all the dirt and makeup (if any was worn) was fully removed from the skin so this is where the toner comes in. Witchazel and Astringent are similar but differ in that an Astringent contains alcohol which can be very dehydrating for people with Dry Skin or irritating for people with Sensitive Skin. Benjamins and Bunny's Witchazel can be used and Astringents from Clean & Clear and Olay can be used.



3. Moisture & Protect - applying a moisturizer containing SPF 15 or more is crucial to adding water back to the skin after the cleansing and toning and also to protect the skin from the harmful rays of the sun. Having oily skin does not mean you have water in your skin. Your skin CAN be oily and dehydrated, so its crucial to add back the moisture to the face. When you starve the skin of water it will produce more oil to compensate for the lack of moisture. This will cause your face to be oilier.





I hope this was help.

Take care.
