Finding My PERFECT Foundation Match... Finally

  • Published on Jan 8, 2019
  • HI SISTERS! I've been doing makeup for 3 years now but the one skill I have not mastered is matching my foundation. I've looked white with Flashback Mary, but I've also looked orange. For today's video, I decided to test out every single foundation on the market and see if I could find the perfect shade. Enjoy!

    You have red pigmentation in your face, it disrupts the true color of your face.
    It's better, for you, to match based on your arm or chest, maybe neck.
    You are neutral to pink undertone, with pale skin. Sorry but it's the truth.
    You are not warm undertoned, it's not a thing.

    James if it matches your neck use it it will maybe not be the perfect match for your face but it will blend beautifully with your neck which is the problem you are dealing with❤️❤️

    Dear people who are say his skin is not yellow it's pink,
    I agree but NO ONE IS TRYING TO LOOK PINK! HE'S TRYING TO LOOK....normal?? NOT BRIGHT PINK! And sister James has mention how certain parts of his body are a different color then his face...SO HE WAS TESTING FOUNDATIONS ON HIS HAND..Which ain't look like his face. Oh yeah, and Y'ALL AINT MAKEUP ARTIST...DON'T TRY TO CORRECT HIM!

    What kind of make up artist u are if you don t know that u need to match your neck to your face, you cant have a darker face and a white neck, white hands etc. u had to take only cool tones and neutrals, warm tones idk what they do in this video, u clearly don t have a warm undertone....u need pink undertone foundation, Mr ''Makeup Artist''.
