Findation – The Foundation Colour Matching Site

If you’re anything like me you love foundation but find it a bit of a nightmare finding the right shade. I know that with high end brands you can get matched for your perfect shade but I am mostly a budget buy kinda girl which means tackling those scary testers, crossing your fingers and hoping for the best! I have quite pale skin and mostly go for the lightest colour in any foundation shade range which is usually ivory but sometimes these can look a little ghost like so then I go for the second lowest. All off this faffing takes rather a long time and I just stick to what I know when I’m in a hurry which is mostly Bourjois Healthy Mix I am Light Vanilla and in Max Factor 3 in 1 I am Warm Almond, but I may have found a solution!

I came across this website from a comment that was left on a blog (can’t remember which one) and saved the site in my bookmarks for a rainy day to go and visit, and the other day I did just that and what I found was rather magical. Findation claims to have ‘created the world’s largest usable database of matching foundation colours’ so I gave it a whirl to see how I would get on. Firstly you have to enter two shades of foundation that you know to be correct for your skin type, they have a range of brands including high end and high street so anything goes. I entered my two trusty favourites (as said above) and was matched to 88 possible shades from 88 different brands (including Chanel, Boots, Mac, Nars, Vichy, Revlon etc), it was amazing! I have tested some of them to see if they are true against my unhealthy stash of foundations and they have all been expertly accurate which is ingenious!

I have now saved my matches and intend to take them shopping with me whenever I am in need of a new foundation as this could lead me to the perfect one!

Have you tried foundation if you haven’t you definitely should!

  1. This is the most amazing thing that has happened to me all week. What a brilliant website! Thanks for sharing. Although it’s a little depressing that all my matches remind me how ghostly pale I am. “Porcelain” “Very Light Ivory” “The Fairest of them All” and my personal favourite “Bone”.

    But seriously though, I’m dead chuffed with this!
