This Reddit Thread Shows Why Foundation Shades Need Wet and Dry Swatches
Foundation Shades Finding your perfect foundation shade isn’t always the easiest task, especially if you’re not sure of your skin’s undertones or even where to test out various shades to find your perfect match. Another thing to keep in mind? There’s almost always a certain degree of color variation between a freshly-applied foundation and what it looks like after fully setting — which is precisely the subject of a recent MakeupAddiction thread on Reddit.
On July 25, a user noted that Make Up For Ever‘s new Matte Velvet Skin Full Coverage Foundation swatch image was the first time that several of the platform’s users had ever seen both wet and dry swatches of the full shade range. At first glance, a large number of shades look virtually the same, but after taking a closer look at the “dry” swatches, the various undertones and differences in color depths are apparent.
