HI SISTERS! I've been doing makeup for 3 years now but the one skill I have not mastered is matching my foundation. I've looked white with Flashback Mary, but I've also looked orange. For today's video, I decided to test out every single foundation on the market and see if I could find the perfect shade. Enjoy!

My 3 favs in this order: Fenty, Too Faced, & Dior. I liked Dior on you, but I think the application process would be a bear. Do you have to cover your eyebrows and hair with something before you apply your foundation? Little eyebrow bandaids. Bwahaha. But the color is lovely. The Fenty looks great though, but I do love the dewy look of Too Faced (though I don't know if you like dewy). Loved this video, crazy thorough. But seriously, your skin without foundation? Gorgeous.

here is an easy way to check your UNDERTONES: Look on the inside of your wrist. look at the color of the veins.
Blue and purplish veins = cool undertones
Yellowish and greenish veins = warm undertones
Blueish and greenish veins = Neutral undertones.
another way is to look at your skin when it's in NATURAL SUNLIGHT:
pinkish skin =cool undertones
yellowish skin =warm undertones
both or undiscernable coloring =nuetral undertones.
James is pink without foundation and likely has dark veins if he looked at them.

I think because you're afraid of the flashback happening again you're denying you are not a warm undertone and is actually a cool undertone (pink undertone).

I think the fenty beauty color was honestly the best match, you can't even see a color difference between the neck and face

James personally I match my foundation to my arms and legs because I could easily apply foundation to my neck and face and all I show is my arms legs face and neck

People need to understand that your skin color changes and nothing is perfect, leave a sister alone! Like all y'all always got something negative to say, like mind ya own gd business and if you cant do that u ain't a true sister! Leave him alone and stop coming for him before somebody come for y'all, LEAVE SUS ALONE

Let's scream together...FENTY! That definitely matched flawlessly. Then too faced and finally makeup forever. Such a great video. The struggle is real. I hate playing the matching game with foundation. Does fenty make a dewy foundation? Xoxo

No shade to James but I really think he’s a lot paler and pinker in undertones than he thinks 😂 cause when he tried to dior airflash I was like “yes hunny he’s done it he found the perfect one” and he was like “this ain’t it” “it’s too pinky” Maybe I just don’t know how to match foundation correctly either, but imo it really did look amazing on him
