It sounds like the problem may be in the tone, and not necessarily the lightness. I would go to Nordstrom or Macy’s and ask someone in the cosmetics department about a foundation with a blue, or cool base. Let them know what your problem is and they might be able to find you something that works! If you can’t afford what they recommend, ask if they know of a drugstore foundation that might be similar.posted over 3 years ago
Thank you ladies! I think I’ll give dainty doll a try, though the price tag is a bit off-putting!posted over 3 years ago
I would try going to Sephora and have them scan your color IQ. They can enter your color IQ into the computer, and it will come up with a list of products that match your skin IQ. I tried this before and it matched my skin to Laura Mercier’s compact foundation. I have to say it’s a really great match! :) Here’s a link to more information on Sephora’s color IQ . Good luck!posted about 3 years ago
I would recommend you try Lancome Teint Miracle. Ask the makeup artist to get you the lightest ivory you can get. The foundation gives you natural, glowy skin look. I hope it helps. :)posted about 3 years ago
I like true match and maybeline ( maybe it’s l’oreal?) bounce foundation, I can’t remember the name off the top of my head, but it works really well.posted about 3 years ago
