Choosing foundation that looks natural on dark skin can be tricky. It needs to even the skin tone without appearing red or ashy. It must match both face and neck. And it has to work with your skin type, too. What you need is a foolproof way to choose dark foundation shades that takes the guesswork out of this tedious task, and saves you time and money in the long run.
Hynt Beauty VELLUTO Pure Powder Foundations are designed with a unique blend of shades to suit the varying undertones of different ethnic skin tones.
3 Steps to Choosing Perfect Dark Foundation Shades
1. What’s Your Undertone? The first step in choosing a foundation for darker skin is to know your undertone – yellow, pink, or neutral. The simplest way to determine your undertone is by looking at which shades of clothing look best on you. Those who look best in warm tones, like yellow or gold, have yellow or warm undertones. If you look fabulous in pinks and blue-reds, you have pink or cool undertones. If you are able to rock both warm and cool tones, you likely have a neutral undertone.
2. Here’s How to Swatch Test Powder. Sampling foundation before you buy makes choosing dark foundation way easier. That’s why we offer an extensive sampling program! This way you can select a few shades and try before you buy. Check out our helpful color matching guide to determine which shades will work best for your skin.

3. Yes, You Can Customize Your Shade! You may need to combine two shades to hit the sweet spot. Feel free to blend two complementary shades together and apply as your own custom color. Or use one shade as a foundation base and use the other to contour and highlight. Hynt concealers are multi-dimensional, never look flat on skin, and are designed to be blended.
