Unlike shopping for a new lip color or a new shade of nail polish, the hunt for the perfect foundation shade for you skin tone is—let's face it—not as fun. In fact, it can be pretty challenging, too! "Do I swatch it on my hand?" "Do I swatch it on my chin?" The list goes on and on. Thank the makeup gods, Candy Girls, because one of the most iconic makeup artists in the beauty department just spilled the beans on the easiest and best way to find your true foundation shade. And when a legendary makeup artist like Bobbi Brown shares her go-to makeup tips, you listen without hesitation.

According to Bobbi Brown, when searching for the perfect foundation shade for your skin tone, it's best to pick three shades that are close to your skin tone instead of simply picking one. Swipe two lines of each shade onto your cheeks and check the color under natural light. Whichever foundation shade blends in with your skin tone the best is your true foundation shade!

Who knew shopping for the perfect foundation shade for your skin tone would be this easy?

Would you swipe six foundation strips in the mall just to find your true shade? We know we would!

The Rebecca Bloomwood of Manila. I spend half of my time obsessing about the latest fashion craze, and the other half overthinking and over-analyzing just about anything under the sun. When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
