Finding My PERFECT Foundation Match... Finally

  • Published on Jan 8, 2019
  • HI SISTERS! I've been doing makeup for 3 years now but the one skill I have not mastered is matching my foundation. I've looked white with Flashback Mary, but I've also looked orange. For today's video, I decided to test out every single foundation on the market and see if I could find the perfect shade. Enjoy!

    Honestly it’s between Fenty or Make up forever on Morphe the shade its lighter than spreaded on your chest and perhaps two faced could be an option depending on climate changes like you said but yeah,Have a good day or night James’s idk if this comment is late but lots of love from me and my mum ! ❤️❤️❤️✌🏻🥰

    I liked the first foundation he used when he was using his final six matches, I like the first one “Born This Way” or something

    This whole video was SO frustrating. I've never seen a self-hating white person before. Usually it's POC using skin lightening creams to fit societal beauty standards. How does a pale person hate their skin color SO MUCH that they have foundation dysmorphia and choose $1000 worth of yellow medium shades? Wow.

    James I'm kinda mad at this. You should know your "perfect foundation match" by now. You are just a little upsetting and I will be leaving some tips from now on okay sis.

    Me: hey James why do I think that you have warm undertones?
    James: CUz iMmA ceLeBRItY

    Everyone is saying that he has pink undertones. Yes. But in foundation, you look for warms or cool tones. He's obviously cool tone. But he believes he's "warm tone" which is incorrect.

    Two face and fentiy for sure.

    It's hard to see why he gets so much hate for something as trivial as foundation but then once you realize how catty the beauty community is... Ever been on r/makeupaddiction or r/skincareaddiction on Reddit? Fucking savage.

    hey James, I really appreciate how you put in so much effort to try on all these foundations, wash them off, rewatch your footage to pick out the best few and try each one on your whole face. Keep up the good work!!!

    You actually want to match the foundation to your chest so when you blend down it looks natural. Your face isnt very dark, it is just very naturally blushed. Having a paler foundation would probably work better to match up with the rest of you ^-^

    A sister tip: you know a foundation matches you when you don’t need to put it on your neck to be the same color 💕
