Medium Skin tones - Shades, pics and more!

Ā 

Salam aleikum dear sister!

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

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 theĀ MediumĀ SkinĀ Range-

If you are in theĀ Medium range, you are probably a lovely amber shade, your skin can most definitely tan while out in the sun, and you don't really have to worry much about sunburns,

Tan, Caramel, Amber and GoldenĀ 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 Medium Range we have the shadesĀ Honey, Tan, and Golden.

Honey has a Yellow neutral undertone

Tan has a Cool/Neutral undertone,

And GoldenĀ 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 Honey and Golden, and depending on the season and sun exposure, the switch between the 2)

Ā 

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:

šŸ”˜šŸŸ šŸ”“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!.šŸ˜®) 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.
Ā If the veins are:
GreenishĀ - you have a YELLOW or warm undertone.
Blueish/purpleĀ - you have a BLUE/PINK or cool undertone.
Indistinguishable or you see both green and blueĀ - you have a BEIGE or neutral undertone.
