A Shade gone wrong ~ Fixing Wrong Shade Foundation or Tinted Moisturizer

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

Have you ever bought a Liquid Foundation or a Tinted Moisturizer that mismatches you skin tone even after trying at the counter/store?

I have!
Always a shade or two darker.
I was desperate to try Biotique Tinted Moisturizer.
There were no testers available at Health and Glow store.
So I happily bought the Rose variant, assuming it has to do with the fragrance rather than the tint. It was much of a disappointment not to experiment. It wouldn't suit, even under Sun block or Foundation.

I tried setting it with an Ivory Compact/A shade lighter than your skin tone. It evened out and looked natural. Since the Tinted Moisturizer is a bit heavier on my normal skin, I like mattifying the dewiness with a compact. I do like the dewiness of this Tinted moisturizer though.
I top a layer of the compact dusting with Blusher brush on top of the Tinted moisturized skin. And Voila! It works fine.
How do you fix wrong shade errors?
