Top tips for finding your perfect Studio Fix Fluid Foundation match

Unique shades, made for all

67 all-inclusive and colour-true shades available for every skin type and every lifestyle.

Step 1 – Finding your undertone

The two main colour groups that we have throughout all our foundations are NW and NC. 

These stand for: Neutral Warm and Neutral Cool.

Find your shade

To find out if you’re more rosy or golden, you can take a picture of yourself in natural light with no make-up on. 

Blur the photo out using your phone – this will leave you with a general all-over tone. 

You may find that some parts of the skin are golden, but the majority is pink and vice versa – go with the colour you see the most. 

If you identify both pink and golden tones you could be neutral, which we have shades available for.

Step 2 – Choosing your shade
