Since Indian skin has the most variation, it is pretty difficult to find the perfect and best foundation for Indian skin. To find the best foundation for your skin tone, you must first understand your skin type. For example, if you have oily skin, you cannot use a foundation with an oil base as it will make your face look greasy and damp.

SKIN TONE– It’s the colour of the skin on the surface that is visible. There are four types of skin tone- Light, Fair, Medium, Deep (Dark).
SKIN UNDERTONE– The hue underneath the surface of your skin. There are 3 types of skin undertone- Warm, Cool, and Neutral.
Warm – If your complexion has more yellow, peach, or golden hues, It is considered a warm undertone.
Cool -If your complexion has hints of pink, red, or blue hues, It is considered a cool undertone.
Neutral – If your complexion has a mix of warm and cool tones and it’s hard to tell which is more prominent, you have a neutral undertone.
