Step 1

Determine the tone of your skin. Tones are defined as fair, fair light, light, light medium, medium, medium deep or deep. Use the color on your jaw to determine skin tone. The skin on your cheeks tends to have more pigment, making the skin there darker.

Step 2

Find the undertone of your skin. Undertones are defined as warm, cool or neutral. If you look better wearing brown, dark green or orange, your undertone is warm. If you look better wearing pink, rose or pastel colors, your skin's undertone is cool. If you get compliments in many different colors, you have a neutral skin tone.

Step 3

Select your L'Oreal True Match shade of foundation according to your skin tone and undertone. Product displays are organized according to tones and undertone colors. L'Oreal displays usually have the lighter shades on top, getting darker as they descend. Warm shades, cool shades and neutral shades are separated on the display racks.
