Finding My PERFECT Foundation Match... Finally
James Charles

James Charles

Published on 8 months ago

HI SISTERS! I've been doing makeup for 3 years now but the one skill I have not mastered is matching my foundation. I've looked white with Flashback Mary, but I've also looked orange. For today's video, I decided to test out every single foundation on the market and see if I could find the perfect shade. Enjoy!

Aww. I love your videos. You're only having to blend it down to your toes because the shade is so off. Try some neutral shades. I think the stripe method from above the jawline down the neck works best. You see your undertones better on your chest and neck and the face usually has more prominent surface tones. You want to match your face to your neck and chest, not the other way around.

DEAR COMMENTS: pink is NOT and undertone. The comments are wrong: he has extremely reddish overtones. I think his undertone is probably neutral or cool. Definitely not warm or olive.

1 and 2 of the foundation really matched your skin 1 it was the perfect match so perfect 2 it was really beautiful and matched but not like 1 I think 1 you should use it for like normal day with normal makeup and 2 for like an effect or...

Sister I don't care what color foundation you use I will support you I'm only 10 I'm your Sister

Honestly it’s between Fenty or Make up forever on Morphe the shade its lighter than spreaded on your chest and perhaps two faced could be an option depending on climate changes like you said but yeah,Have a good day or night James’s idk if this comment is late but lots of love from me and my mum ! ❤️❤️❤️✌🏻🥰

I liked the first foundation he used when he was using his final six matches, I like the first one “Born This Way” or something

Two faced or fenty

This whole video was SO frustrating. I've never seen a self-hating white person before. Usually it's POC using skin lightening creams to fit societal beauty standards. How does a pale person hate their skin color SO MUCH that they have foundation dysmorphia and choose $1000 worth of yellow medium shades? Wow.

James I'm kinda mad at this. You should know your "perfect foundation match" by now. You are just a little upsetting and I will be leaving some tips from now on okay sis.

Me: hey James why do I think that you have warm undertones? James: CUz iMmA ceLeBRItY


XxFluffyKoalaxX . 1 week ago

Everyone is saying that he has pink undertones. Yes. But in foundation, you look for warms or cool tones. He's obviously cool tone. But he believes he's "warm tone" which is incorrect.

Two face and fentiy for sure. *sorry if I spelled the names wrong im not a beauty guru

It's hard to see why he gets so much hate for something as trivial as foundation but then once you realize how catty the beauty community is... Ever been on r/makeupaddiction or r/skincareaddiction on Reddit? Fucking savage.

hey James, I really appreciate how you put in so much effort to try on all these foundations, wash them off, rewatch your footage to pick out the best few and try each one on your whole face. Keep up the good work!!!
