It is a common thought that we can get away with the same foundation all year round… But, as a matter of fact, only some people with pale skin tones and people living in cooler climate locations can usually get away with one foundation colour all year round!
As for the rest of us; we are not the same colour of foundation all year round!! Our skin colour actually changes with the seasons throughout the year.
Our sun is the main reason for the variance in our skin shades, changing from lighter to darker in Spring/ Summer and darker to lighter in Autumn/ Winter. The amount of time your skin is exposed is among the factors that will decipher the results in the change of depth.
I recommend, that when choosing your foundation, to buy x2 foundations- one being a lighter shade and the other a darker shade. It’s a time and money saver in the long run; rather than owning just the ONE shade of foundation closest to your skin colour for the x1 season of the year only.
You will not only avoid the dreaded “masked” look but also having x2 dramatically varied, foundation colours, will enable you to mix the desired foundation colour any time of the year! Even, let’s say, if one day you decided to have a spray tan, then mixing these x2 colours together in percentages works really well!
