Bare Minerals shade for Indian skintone

Recommended Posts

I ordered tan and it is too dark for me! I ordered it online just based on the shade that was on the Sephora website. I am going to return it and order another one, but which shade should I get? Should I go for Medium Tan or Medium Beige

There really is no fixed "indian skin tone". Everyone's skin colour is different. You should really go and get a colour match to find out which is your colour! Although when i had it done, they chose Medium Beige for me. Lovely colour, but not my skin colour.

well the Bare Escentuals site says that Medium Tan is "for medium-to-tan skin with rosy undertones" while Medium Beige is "for medium skin with neutral undertones".

 

since most Indians seem to have warm or olive skin, I would recommend Golden Medium, and even though Golden Tan and Warm Tan are in the same depth category as the Tan, which you said is too dark, you should give them a shot if you're able to actually try them on. if there is a Sephora or Bare Escentuals store in your area, I would highly recommend going there so the sales associate could help you out. they could even test out the colors on your face.

I am Indian - but don't have the normal Indian skin coloring - I am a little more yellow. I found that BE didn't sit well on my skin nor could I find a match even close. I also felt that itchy feeling with it...?

 

I used to love EGM (but they don't seem to be open anymore) and now am using Lucy - which is good. Monave and Milan also have good choices for our skin coloring.

 

Good luck! :-)

I would suggest you try Meow. they have tons of undertones, especially yellow ones!

    • I was just wondering if you do? and if so is it hard to continually put make-up on everyday?
    • I was looking at natural ways to slim my face and came across this super detailed, well-sourced article on face exercises. I was skeptical, but there's quite a few studies to back this stuff up. All of the studies I've seen specifically tested the effects for women over 30 and found positive results. Anybody try face exercises before? I've started doing it for a week now and it's relaxing before going to bed. Not sure if the effects will be long-term YET, but I'm trying it out still.
    • The Harvey Prince perfume house sent me an email of some great sample sets they have available. For $5.00 I got their Deluxe Sample Set which has Hello Shampoo and Conditioner minis and some little sample vials of their perfumes. I am delighted with this little buy. I wanted to get samples of their Fango and Sea Salt Spray for the hair, but they are sold out. Maybe they will get more. I do enjoy their products; nice way to treat myself without guilt. 
    • I did it. It was hard. I got my new pretty pink credit card in the mail today. I activated it right away, then I called to close it and cut it up right away!!!!!! It feels bad. I wanted that card. I wanted freedom to buy more, eat more. I worked so hard to pay that card (which has a really bad APR) off during my No Buy. Then I opened that card again during my recent binge. I was so close to sliding back. In 2018 I reduced my credit card debts from 16 to 11, with a plan to get to 6 by the end of this year, and then this past month I signed up for four charge cards again. I won't have closure until the new ones are all received in the mail and closed. This is my main concern right now. It hurt to trash that new card, I wanted it, but I saved myself some grief!!!!!
