Hi, I would like to know which is the best make of foundation for Asian/Indian skin? I prefer something with a yellow undertone, I have tried MACs range but it makes me look grey, and I do not want to look grey.


Hi Afroz, 

Choosing the correct foundation for Asian/ Indian skin can be tricky. Even when I’m working I find the need to blend two different shades together to achieve the correct colour. I normally recommend this approach to clients who ask me this exact question. Yellow-based foundation is best suited for Asian/Indian skin, as this accentuates your natural skin tone but try and finish with a brighter, white based translucent powder which will help to brighten the skin. Go to the make up counters and ask them to test the foundation on you to find a match. Ask them for samples of two or more shades.
