I'm currently using Rimmel's Match Perfection foundation, and the shade is slightly off, but I am planning to get the next lighter shade which should match me. The thing is, when I put my hands against my face, they're a completely different colour, they're so pale! So even if I used the next lighter shade of foundation which actually matches my face, it'll still look much darker than the rest of my body? Should I risk it, and get a foundation that's quite a few shades lighter than I should be wearing, so that I won't have an dark face/neck and light body? I don't know if it's just because my face has tanned over the last few months, or if I have a naturally darker face. I would appreciate any advice!
What shade foundation should I use? Watch

If you only plan to use drugstore brands then test them on your jaw area, if it blends into your jaw then it should be fine for your face.. Don't compare to your hands cause they're usually darker than your face
Have you ever gone to a makeup counter and asked them to find your perfect colour?
What I usually do is get someone else to do it for me as they obviously know what their doing, I then get a sample of the foundation and try it myself a few times to see if I'm happy with the colour and to see if I get any comments of it being too dark/light
And if I like it then I buy a big bottle!
Usually only bigger brands like Dior and Mac have makeup counters though!
