As the season evolves, I find myself trying too hard to make my skin look even- toned and natural. What I discover thru the Shade Finder was priceless.
While I enjoy the upcoming warmer weather, it is not uncommon for me suffer from “readapting syndrome” as I call the uncomfortable reactions my skin has when pollen attacks my respiratory system, water can be used cooler and I get all itchy without any previous notice. Also, melanin start to color any part of my body that enters in contact with sun rays, even when wearing sunscreen. Obviously, that happens to my face too: my cheeks and chin -as sensitive areas as they are- start looking reddish, my under eye bags become much more noticeable and, most of the time, I can have a dull look, courtesy of the former winter season.
This uneven skin tone calls 911 for makeup. But not any makeup, but that one product that can work with color correction, give a great coverage and last for hours, as California’s weather can be inclement. So, I start looking for a foundation that could be a better fit for my shade and, at the same time, long wear and beneficial for my skin. And I decided to go lazy, which means ordering it online. That narrow my search to one great option: TheNeutrogena® Shade Finder that Neutrogena has available on its website. También se puede tomar el test en español en el link a Encuentratutono.com
This is how it works:
- Go to the Neutrogena® Shade Finder page and start taking the quiz
2. Choose the best description for your skin main issue. Each option will show examples of how it might appear on the model’s face, so you can easily detect and relate to them.
3. Now, select the picture that you can identify as closer to your skin tone. I loved you have options among the skin tones, as you can be light but more into the olive side than into the pink side. It’s clear Neutrogena’s priority is to make sure it has foundation formulas to match multiple skin types and shades that work for all ethnicities. With its new shade extensions, the brand is now able to address more consumers’ skin tones. Yay for us!
You also will be asked for your eye color, so they can give you makeup products recommendations that goes well with your full skin complexion.
4. Finally, you will receive a message and a picture of what foundation works better for your skin issues and complexion, and a picture from the model that best fits your description, and how Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup’s formula actually works to visibly improve skin’s luminosity, tone and texture over time. You can see how more evenly colored her skin looks on the picture on the right.
This was my recommended product: Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup Nourishing Long Wear tone correcting complex in Nude 40. Its ingredients, such as titanium dioxide sunscreen that brings 20 SPF broad spectrum, and its vitamin- and antioxidant-packed formula, is actually better for your skin than wearing no foundation at all. Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup’s formula actually works to visibly improve skin’s luminosity, tone and texture over time.
I was a bit worried of getting my real tone, as I ordered it online, but it all came right! Do you want to see how it worked for me? Here’s my #strongfoundation look step- by- step.
