Medium 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 Medium Light Skin Range-

If you are in the Medium light range, you are still pale, but not really fair. There's a bit more warmth to your skin. Your skin is still sensitive in the sun, but you can get in a tan and, most likely, don't burn as much.

Sand, Light Amber or Beige, are terms you probably associate with your skin tone, and most likely you already know what undertone you have (if not, we will discuss that below!)

Now, in the Light Range we have the shades Beige, Warm Beige, Sand.

Beige has a Yellow neutral undertone

Warm Beige has a Cool undertone,

And Sand 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 Beige and Sand, 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.
So, I'm listing matches from other customers who have given me feedback, and also some matches I've tested personally:

🔘🟠🔴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!

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.
