Current Foundation Routine
As a woman of colour, this doesn’t come as a shock. I mean we have to use two foundations. For the longest time, I did use you one. But with the unevenness of tones on my face, I have to use two.
Undertones are a funny thing you can look at the foundation at first sight and think it will work out for your skin. When you get home the shade is correct but the undertone is off. I can tell you how many times I thought the foundation was what I need butt end up being so incorrect for me.
Check out your veins
Your veins are the fastest way to tell what type of undertone you are. If your veins look greenish, then you may have warm undertones. With blue or purplish-looking veins usually have cooler undertones. If you have neutral undertones, then your veins may appear colourless or match the colour of your skin. My veins are greenish so I tend to go for a foundation that is a yellow or red undertone.
