If you’re anything like me, you have a bit of a tricky time figuring out what your undertones are.
And for this, you can be forgiven: undertones come in various hues, and are not always as apparent as someone’s skin tone. But Prescriptives is hoping to acquaint you with the deep browns, golden yellow, creams, and reds in the foundation game, and help you figure out if you have warm or cool undertones. The Beauty Print Facebook Game runs from March 10 through March 3o and you can play every day for a chance to win a custom-blend foundation (so there are 21 chances in all).
If you’re curious to see how their custom blend foundation stacks up, read our review here. In a nutshell, it can’t be beat.
To play the game, you need to match swirls of foundation with a photo of a beauty blogger that would use that particular set of shades. You can take as many guesses as you can in 15 seconds, and once you’ve completed the Beauty Print quiz, you’ll be as curious about your hues as we were. And yes, BeautyintheBag is featured as one of the beauty bloggers in this game!
For instance, which of the two bloggers below would you pick to correspond with the central set of hues?
(We’re not going to spoil the results for you, but it should be obvious…see how there are more cool tones than warm tones in the swirl above?).
This is how the beauty lab mixes your foundation: using a spectrum of hues and warm and cool tones. It also is the reason why it’s so hard to eyeball your perfect foundation shade and why it’s always better to get a custom blend if you have the option. But now, the colors are on the Facebook Wal—log on to the Beauty Print Game and enter daily to be eligible to win one.
