  • Normally there are testers available for you to try out before you by them. I usually put a little on the back of my hand and see if it blends into my skin tone easily. It's easy for me to find the right shade because I'm the lightest shade available lol (porcelain/light ivory).

  • Put it on your chin and take a mirror to a window

    • I mean at the store. Not after it's been opened.
