What foundation formula should I choose?
For a gorgeous airbrushed look, Clarins Everlasting Foundation guarantees long-lasting perfection that won’t budge. If you prefer a made-to-measure formula that’s adaptable from day to night, try new Tinted Oleo Serum’s tailormade buildable coverage or Clarins Skin Illusion. Whether in liquid foundation or powder foundation form, Clarins foundations provide flawless coverage and a perfectly even complexion, for fans of the natural makeup look and those who’re looking for nighttime glamour!
How do I find out my skin’s undertone?
Skin undertone isn’t the same thing as skin tone! Your skin tone is the colour of your skin, while your skin’s undertone can be either cool, warm or neutral. If you’re not sure how to find your skin’s undertone, try holding up a piece of white paper to your face. If your skin looks yellow or peachy, you have a warm undertone. If your skin looks rosy or pink, you have a cool undertone. If you’re undecided, you may have a neutral undertone.
To see the best results from your foundation, apply a beige or pinky beige foundation to skin with pink or red undertones. If you have a sallow complexion or skin with yellow undertones, colour correct with a pinky beige or neutral foundation. And finally, reach for golden beige shades if your skin is olive or dark. Still not sure? Our Virtual Try On Tool can help!
What does foundation coverage mean?
Coverage refers to the appearance of your finished makeup look. Opting for a foundation with light coverage, such as a tinted moisturiser, buildable formula like Clarins Tinted Oleo Serum, will give a barely-there natural complexion. Other types of foundation, such as Clarins Skin Illusion Velvet’s matte formula, offer heavy coverage to conceal blemishes or create a fully even skin tone. Other foundations, such as Clarins Everlasting Youth Fluid, will help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The coverage you’ll choose will depend on your finished look - you may prefer a light texture that allows skin to breathe, or heavy coverage for a flawless, Instagram-ready look. Opting for a liquid formula with buildable coverage, such as Clarins Tinted Oleo Serum, will help you customise your look from day to night for the perfect complexion.
