The last question on ones mind is how do I know that I choose the correct foundation shade? It’s pretty easy. One thing to keep in mind is that oily skin tends to oxidize foundations, meaning that your foundation might become darker. So make sure to test the foundation for oxidization. If it oxidizes then always choose one tone lighter since the foundation will become darker on your skin. Now back to how to choose the correct foundation. If your foundation seems ashy on your skin then this means that your foundation is to light. If your foundation seems orange this means that your foundation is too dark. These same problems can occur if you choose the wrong undertone. For example, if your skin looks too yellow or too pink or red, this means that you choose the wrong undertone.
