I love shopping for makeup online, but to be quite honest, color matching without an in-person visit to Sephora’s Beauty Counter always leaves me feeling baffled. Just when I think I clicked on a foundation shade that best matches my skin, my next pick looks like it could also work. There I am, stumped. Stumped and foundation-less.

She simplified everything from how to find your undertone, online tools and tips you can use to identify your perfect shade and some of her favorite foundations and concealers from Sephora Collection, Makeup by Mario, Haus Labs by Lady Gaga and more.
