I have light skin (not bronzed) with light brown eyes and light brown hair. What shade would be the best for me as foundation: Cashmere or Barely there? My skin is more warm toned, I think. Thanks for your help!
Thank you for your recent interest in our products! Based on what you have described your skin tone to be, your best bet would be to try our Cashmere base. Our mineral makeup is especially formulated for those with sensitive and/or reactive skin types. We offer all of our loose base shades in easy to use, try-me size 2 gram shaker jars. These are a great way to try one or two shades for the first time and custom blend the shades together for a more perfect match to your skin tone. Find a color chart below to help decide which shade is best for you. We are always glad to help. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
PINK/COOL/RUDDY: If your skin is light with cool, pink, or ruddy (ruddy is deep pink/red) undertones, the shades for you to choose from are: Cashmere (not for ruddy), Cool Beige (great for ruddy), Sea Shell (listed in order of lightest to darkest)
NEUTRAL: If your skin is very light with no pink or minimal pink, you will want Barely There. However, if it is very light but with a lot of pink or red, you will want Cashmere or Cool Beige (for red or ruddy, Cool Beige will look the most natural).
If your skin is very fair you will want Barely There (a neutral shade)
If your skin is light with pink or cool undertones you will want Cool Beige
