Light Skin tones - Shades, pics and more!


Salam aleikum dear sister!

Finding your perfect shade can be a daunting task when done online, so I want to give you all the info possible for you to make a choice. 

This series of blog articles is dedicated to each shade range, and all the information about it so you can have a better idea on what to expect!

In this blog, we will be looking at the Light Range-


If you are in the Light range, you are in the lightest range of all, which can sometimes be an issue due to foundations not being quite as fair as you. It's also very likely that your skin burns, rather than get a tan when out in the sun, hence, sunscreen is your ultimate bff!

Porcelain, Alabaster, are ways in which you would describe your skin shade, you are also likely prone to redness and most fair skin types will have a cool undertone (more on that in a bit)


In the Light Range we have the shades Seashell, Vanilla and Coconut.

Seashell has a Yellow neutral undertone,

Vanilla has a Cool undertone,

And Coconut has a Neutral undertone,

(It's quite possible to have more than one shade match your skin, for example a few of my customers match with both Seashell and Coconut, and depending on the season and sun exposure, the switch between the 2)


One of the best ways I've found to determine your best match is to make a comparison with any matches that you've had from other companies. Below I'm listing matches from other customers who have given me feedback, and also some matches I've tested personally:
-------->Glossier perfecting skin tint - G11 - COCONUT
-------->Laura Mercier oil free tinted moisturizer Porcelain  - COCONUT
-------->Liz Earle sheer skin tint - 01 Bare - COCONUT
-------->Fenty Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation 140 - SEASHELL

🔘🟠🔴Now, let's talk Undertones

Undertones play a big role in how your foundation reacts with your skin. You can be in the right shade range, but the wrong undertone can make your skin look ashy, orange or pink, (yikes!.😮) And just in case you need help deciding your undertone, here are some easy tips!
warm undertones
In natural light, look at the inside of your forearm and wrist.
 If the veins are:
Greenish - you have a YELLOW or warm undertone.
Blueish/purple - you have a BLUE/PINK or cool undertone.
Indistinguishable or you see both green and blue - you have a BEIGE or neutral undertone.

Once you have an idea of your range and undertone, then it becomes a bit easier to find the right skin tint shade, (and cream concealer) :
