How to Find Your Perfect Foundation Shade

Picking out a foundation shade can be the most nerve wracking part of getting new makeup. Even in the stores it’s hard to tell if the color you see in the bottle will match the color of your skin.

LimeLife by Alcone has the best foundation that I’ve ever tried, and I feel like I’ve tried them all! In fact, many celebrity makeup artists use the same foundation. I’ve written another blog post, foundation 101, where I’ve talked about this before but it’s been a year. We’ve added some new shades so I thought I would make an updated post!

LimeLife brought in professional makeup artist, Danessa Myricks, to help expand our makeup line to be more diverse. With this, came more foundation shades for darker skin tones, so we needed a new quiz. Professional makeup artist to the stars, Kat Aragon, created this incredibly accurate quiz. She’s a genius when it comes to color matching!

Here is the link to the color matching quiz!

When it comes to LimeLife, the names of the foundations can trip people up a little bit. If you have a pink undertone to your skin, you will be in the Olive shades. If you have yellow undertones then you will be in the Shinto line. Here are a few visuals that will help.

Now I’m not going to be able to go a whole makeup post without showing some before and afters 🤪 They’re just so dang good! LimeLife’s Perfect Foundation is 50% pigmented which is more than double most high-end makeup brands. It’s noncomedogenic, which means it won’t clog your pores. It’s truly perfect! Okay so let’s check out these incredible beauty guides that have shared their results with us!

Stunning right?!

Now that you’ve seen the amazingness, take the quiz here and if you still feel unsure, feel free to leave me a message on this post, contact me on Facebook, or Instagram. Include a picture of yourself in natural lighting like this and I can tell you which shade is best for you!


– When applying your foundation be light handed. The pigment in LimeLife’s foundation is much more than others. A little goes a long way! It’s buildable so feel free to put on a small amount and you can always add more for more coverage.

– I recommend setting foundation with a setting powder. It will help it last longer and give it a more matte finish. If you need a new powder, LimeLife has a great setting powder that is translucent and will work on all skin tones.

– LimeLife has a 30 day money back guarantee, with a super simple return/exchange policy

– Free shipping starting at $77


Don’t forget your tools! If you need a new makeup brush, I love the diffuser brush #17. My personal favorite way to apply this foundation is with a damp blenderful.
