How to choose Jane Iredale foundation shade

How to choose Jane Iredale foundation shadeCOLOR GUIDE FOR BASES


In color-coding, people who have cool undertone are referred to as Winter or Summer because of the underlying blue tone to skin, hair, eyes, teeth, etc. Winters and Summers usually tan easily, although Summers will have more sun-damage because they tend to have fairer complexions.

Use the combinations below, as a guide only. Many times, Winters have olive or strong yellow tones to their skins – Asians, for example. They are much better wearing a yellow base so that makeup doesn’t appear to lay on top of the skin and look like a mask. However, the cool blush, eye shadows and lipsticks best enhance their features making teeth whiter and eyes brighter.

Light Beige : Fair with pink undertones.
Natural Medium : Fair with pink undertones.
Honey Bronze : Medium/Tan with pink undertones. Also use as a blush.


In color-coding, people who have warm undertones are referred to as Spring or Autumn because of the underlying yellow tone to skin, hair, eyes, teeth, etc. Springs and Autumns do not tan easily. They may tan eventually but usually burn first. Sun protection is important for all skin types, but it is essential for Springs and Autumns. Also included in this section are our darker bases, all of which have yellow/gold undertones. The global shades are best combined with cool blushes, eye and lip colors.

Warm Silk: Fair with yellow undertones. Almost a universal color.
Amber: Medium Fair with yellow undertones
Warm Sienna: Medium Fair with strong yellow undertones. This also works well on Asian skins.
