The Perfect Match with Cover FX

Finding a foundation match is pretty much the bane of my existence, trying to find a match for my Olive undertones is nearly impossible. Any foundation shades come off looking too pink, too cakey, and even the closest matches (too neutral) often leave wearers with a muddy greyed face.

I'm so excited to be teaming up with Beauty Bay and Cover FX to share how I found my perfect match.
Beauty Bay
Cover FX makes it easy to find the match for you, by using only two factors: shade range, and undertone. Additionally, Cover FX shades are completely consistent across all of their formulas, meaning that your shade will be the same throughout their products.

Step 1: So let's break down the shade range
Light: 0-20
Medium: 25-40
Medium Deep: 50-85
Deep: 90-125

Keep these numbers on the back-burner as the next step of foundation matching. Where does one match their foundation? Most people say to match it to their jaw/ neck. For reference, my bare face shade is a quite easily an N40 and matches my neck perfectly. However, as someone whose skin is every colour of the beige rainbow, I find this helpful for spot treating, but not for full face coverage.  So that should be the perfect match right? Well, my body is a full shade darker at 50, therefore my foundation shade will have to be a _50.

Step 2: Match your undertones
P- Pink matches rosier, cooler hues
N- Neutral is equal parts pink and golden
G- Golden is for warm golden skin
G+- It's Golden+ for the warmer and more golden hues

Here are Beauty Bay's top tips for finding your undertone:
For the P Series, think Julianne Moore, Adele or Emma Stone.For the N Series, think Jennifer Aniston, Kate Winslet, Beyonce andJennifer Hudson.For the G Series, think Lucy Liu, Kim Kardashian or Jennifer Lopez.For those with ebony skin, choose a shade within the N series.
If you're still unsure, a tried and tested formula for checking out undertones is to look at the veins on your forearms. Veins with a green tinge to them have warm, golden undertones, and a blue tinge suggests cooler tones. My veins are so green that I had no problem identifying them as Cover FX's Golden range. I can't wait to show you the results for my perfect match.
