Hi. I'm Erin Hendley, professional makeup artist, and today I'm here to answer your question, what is the base color face foundation for someone with light brown hair. Well, foundation isn't really based on what color hair you have. It's really all about skin tone. So despite whatever hair color you have, it really just needs to match whatever your skin tone is on your face. So take that as the main consideration on why you choose the color foundation you do. And so what you're going to do to find that perfect shade of foundation, is test it out on your face. A lot of makeup artists say to do it on your hand, on your wrist, on your neckline, but the foundation is going on your face so it's great to make sure that it does blend in there. You will extend most of your makeup to your neckline, so it is important to match the two. But make sure that it goes on seamlessly. And you're either going to pick to match your face to your neck or your neck to your face because the two are slightly different color most of the time. So you pick one and you match them together. And the best way to actually do it is just to take colors and apply it to the face and see if it works. Just take a bunch of colors that look like might be in your range and figure it out. It's good to compare them side by side if possible. But if not, just trial and error. Once you have a color on that you think might be something that works well for you, wear it around for an hour, sometimes it changes color, especially with your body temperature. So that's a good way to make sure that it's the ultimate fix. I'm Erin Hendley, and I just showed you the best color face foundation for someone with light brown hair.
