Color Matching 101 – Tips to Success
Fair Skin Tones
How gorgeous is my model Savannah? I mean talk about beautiful skin. With Savannah’s lighter skin tones, I used the following colors:
Since Savannah’s work is busy and hectic, we wanted it to last. We opted for the setting powder over the illuminator to ensure a lasting everyday look. I was really surprised to use Moonlit as it’s the lightest shade, but White Peach was too dark. When color matching make sure you don’t look yellow or too ghostly. I usually test a little bit on the jaw line. If I’m not close to you, email me and I can color match you from anywhere!
Medium Skin Tones
Where are my sun babes at? Kaylie just got back from Hawaii, so I wanted to keep her bronzed glow. Color matching tan skin can be tricky without creating too many yellow undertones. Amber is my go to! If your skin tends to tan with more red undertones, sunlit is going to be your jam. (That’s my summer color!) Here’s what we used on Kaylie:
Kaylie’s skin tends to be more on the oily side, so we opted for the setting powder instead to create a lasting finish. When color matching medium skin tones, look for undertones. Are you more yellow or red in the sun? This will help to ensure proper color.
Olive Skin Tones
My model Kay is Latina with beautiful olive skin. I wanted to accentuate her natural bone structure and keep her pigments warm. Since she does have olive undertones, a stone or our new olive contour works amazingly on her. Here’s what we used:
- Highlight: Amber
- Contour: Stone (Olive wasn’t available when I did her makeup)
- Blush: Ever Red
- Illuminator: Honey
With warmer skin tones, honey is my go to illuminator to get that Pinterest worthy glow. She wanted a more glam look with some fierce ever red on her lips and cheeks.
Dark Skin Tones
I’m soooo excited to announce our new color line for those who have a darker complexion! Part of the same IIID Foundation family, mango and indigo will be your go-to colors. We also launched my new obsession, nude and olive!

Get out there gorgeous!
Happy Monday babes!
