Get your perfect shade of foundation

Get your perfect shade of foundation

If you can never find that perfect shade of foundation for your skin tone, The Body Shop's new Shade Adjusting Drops ($29.90 each, available at The Body Shop stores from Monday) might be just the solution.

These bottles of pigments allow you to customise your own shade. Try the Lightening Drops if your liquid foundation looks too dark or orange on your skin. It contains white and pink pigments to neutralise the yellow in light-to-medium shades.

The Darkening Drops works best with liquid foundations that are too light or look ash-toned on the skin. The black and red pigments will balance out the colours.

To use, blend the shades on the back of your hand before application.
