Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Foundation
About My Coloring
I would describe myself as light-medium in color with soft, warm, yellowish undertones. My neck is closer to light in color, while the edges of my face are closer to true light-medium and the center of my face is closer to light-to-light-medium. As a result, I find color matches that are slightly warmer and yellower to suit me best, as true neutral foundations look rosier/pinker against my complexion. I also will lean lighter, as it will be easier to match against my neck, and I’ll often use a flesh-toned powder that adds a touch of additional color. The closest match I have found thus far is Tarte’s Rainforest of the Sea in Light-Medium Neutral.
I have hazel eyes (a mixture of green and brown) and black-brown hair with less warmth in my eyebrows (they aren’t true black but warmer brow colors tend to look obvious).
About My Skin
I have normal-to-dry skin overall. The majority of my face is normal most of the time, but occasionally, I get dryness on my eyelids, around my nostrils, and on my cheeks. I have some fine lines around my eyes and underneath my eyes as well as visible smile lines. I have a larger line that runs across my forehead. As far as skin concerns go, I am most concerned with signs of aging and evenness of my skin overall. I feel like I have normal-sized pores, as I do not notice them all. the. time. but find they can be visible and emphasized by the texture and finish of products. I would not consider my skin sensitive, and after trialing so many products over the last ten years, I’d actually say it’s rather resilient.
