Colorescience Shade Recommendations

The Colorescience Loose Foundation Brush allows you to achieve sheer to medium coverage.

With the new Natural Finish Pressed Foundation SPF 20, Colorescience aims to offer just six shades that will be a fit for more skin tones. This will help simplify your choice and allow you to more easily select the best shade for you. Rather than being sorted into either warm or cool undertones, all Colorescience Natural Finish Pressed Foundation SPF 20 shades are now neutral, making them suitable for both warm and cool undertones.

Shade recommendations based on the other colorescience products

If you already use Colorescience Tint du Soleil Foundation or Colorescience Sunforgettable Brush-on Sunscreen, it’s easy to find your match since you already know if you’re Light, Medium, Tan or Deep. If you’re new to Colorescience, decide with of the four shades you fall under and choose your Natural Finish Pressed Foundation SPF 20 based on the following.

Light will match you to the Light Ivory shade in Colorescience Natural Finish Pressed Foundation SPF 20. Deep will match you to Deep Mocha. Medium skin tones will need to decide whether they are on the lighter or deeper side of medium. Medium Bisque is lighter, while Medium Sand is deeper. Tan skin tones should choose between Tan Natural for a lighter tan or Tan Golden for a deeper tan. Since all shades are neutral, they’ll blend seamlessly into skin and match a wide range of tones.
