TINT: FIND THE RIGHT SHADE THAT SUITS YOUR COMPLEXION
Finding the right shade of concealer to match your unique skin tone can be tricky. Choosing a shade that's too light will not look natural, while a shade that's too dark could make your dark circles even more visible. The choice isn't easy!
HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT SHADE
We don't believe in testing a shade on your wrist or the back of your hand. This area tends to tan differently from your face, and the skin in this area is also thinner, so it can't be an actual representation of your face's skin tone.
When choosing the right shade, it's best to look at the skin tone around your jawline, as this will help to better match the colour of your entire face.
As a concealer, we recommend choosing one shade lighter than your skin tone, to illuminate the eyes.
As a corrector, we recommend taking the shade closest to your skin tone.
When applying a tinted product, it's important to let it dry properly to ensure that the shade matches your skin tone. A shade may appear too light or too dark the moment you apply it, but it'll be the right shade after a few minutes.
HOW TO DETERMINE YOUR SKIN'S UNDERTONE
We developed our tinted serums and concealers to correspond to all undertones. You can find them indicated in the descriptions of each of our shades.
There are several different undertones. To know yours, simply look at the colour of your veins.
If the veins visible on through your skin appear green, your undertone is warm and will lean towards yellow.
If your veins appear blue, you likely have a cold, pink undertone.
If it's not obvious, or if you have both blue and green veins, you have a neutral undertone.
How did we develop our shades
The six shades of serums and concealers were developed based on Fitzpatrick's Phototype Scale, an American dermatologist from Harvard. This scale classifies individuals according to how their skin reacts to factors like sun exposure. The more melanin your skin secretes, the darker it gets and the better protected it is from sun damage.
Type 1 - Fair
Fair skin, with freckles or not.
Type 2 - Light
Light skin with pink, neutral or yellow undertones.
Type 3 - Medium
Medium skin with warm or olive undertones.
Type 4 - Tan
Tan skin types with bronze undertones.
Type 5 - Medium dark
Light brown skin with warm undertones.
Type 6 - Dark brown
Dark skin types with cool undertones.
