Want to know the secret to finding your perfect foundation match? It’s all about figuring out your undertone. Crack that, and you’ve cracked the online foundation game for good. If you’ve already got your undertone sussed, congrats – things are about to get a whole lot easier from here on out.
To recap, there are generally three undertones: warm, cool, and neutral. Cool undertones tend to include pink, red, or blue tones. Foundation shades for cool undertones are often labelled with a ‘C’, look pinker in the bottle, and are described as Fawn or Beige.
Thankfully, there are tonnes of foundations that cater to cool undertones, so your perfect match is definitely out there. To help you narrow it down, we’ve compiled a list of the foundations we love for cool undertones. Scroll for our faves.
