i. Know Your undertone.
Undertones are the colors that appear under your natural color when you apply foundation, concealer or lipstick: cool, warm or neutral. For example, if your natural skin color was yellow but when you apply foundation it appears white, then you have cool undertones. If your natural skin color was pink but when applying foundation it looks orange-red, then you have warm undertones.

Shade matching is the process of swatching different shades of foundation or concealers on the skin until you find the shade that disappears into your skin, any foundation that disappears into your skin is the right shade of foundation.
