Medium Dark 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 Medium Dark Range-

If you are in the Medium Dark range your skin is a rich chocolate color, deep, golden tones that are less likely to experience sunburn thanks to a little thing called melanin (yay!)

Chocolate brown, Chestnut, Cinnamon, are colors you might think of when describing  your skin shade, there are different undertones as well, even though a majority of deeper shades have a warm/yellow hue (more on undertones below).

In the Medium Dark Range we have the shades Coffee, Mocha and Latte.

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:

FOUNDATIONS THAT MATCH THE MEDIUM DARK SKIN RANGE (based on customer's feedback and personal testing*)

🔘🟠🔴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!
cool undertones
neutral undertones
ANOTHER WAY TO FIND YOUR UNDERTONE:
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.
