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:
-------->BOBBI BROWN LONG WEAR WEIGHTLESS FOUNDATION - Cool Almond 7.25 - (MOCHA)
--------->ESTEE LAUDER DOUBLE WEAR FOUNDATION - Mocha - (MOCHA)
🔘🟠🔴Now, let's talk Undertones
If the veins are:
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.
