Mineral Foundation Guide

Fair Skin
Though you may be tempted to use a foundation shade darker than your natural skin tone, don't!! Instead, choose a mineral makeup with slight yellow undertones in order to give yourself a nice warmth. Avoid using anything with strong pink undertones so that your skin does not appear ruddy. Choose shades 1.0-2.3 or 3.0 of Erth Foundation, depending upon undertones.


Medium Skin

This complexion type is best suited by using a yellow-toned foundation. Avoid using anything with a very strong orangy base.
Choose shades 2.5-4.0.

Olive Skin

For those blessed with an olive skin tone, you are best served by using a warm-toned, yellowish mineral foundation color. Avoid anything pink or orange based. Choose Erth shades 5.6 or 6.1.

Tan-Dark Skin

For medium to dark skin, red or yellow undertoned foundations are best. For lighter skin, gold tones are best. Also for darker skins, avoid using a mineral foundation with a lot of titanium dioxide in it, as this can make your skin appear ashy. Choose Erth foundation shades 4.35 - 6.1.
