Yellow-based foundations work best on Asian skin; a pink-based foundation does not blend well with the olive undertones found in Asian skin. The appropriate foundation type for oily skin, combination skin or dry skin should be selected.
Foundation should be tested at the jaw line to see if it complements the skin and blends in naturally. It is best to analyze the tone and texture in natural light. A makeup artist can create a custom blend for better color matching. A lighter foundation shade should be used in the winter, and a darker shade should be worn in the summer months.
