Huda Beauty has joined other cosmetic brands in their quest to create the most inclusive foundation shades. I recently purchased Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Formula ($34). The Fenty Foundation has forty Foundation shades to choose from. At the same time I purchased the Fenty Foundation, I attempted to purchase the Huda Faux Filter Foundation. Huda has thirty shades in her new foundation line (click here for the link) $40. I purchased shade 310G Amaretti.
Unfortunately, most of the shades were sold out at both the Sephora Store, and Sephora on line. However, when I was in the store, I was color-matched for my correct shade. Again, most of the shades have been sold out. Finally, ( it took over a month) I was able to purchase my shade at Sephora online.
Creating Huda Faux Filter Foundation
Huda always had difficulty finding a foundation shade that was her perfect match. Accordingly, she had to mix several shades together to create her perfect shade. Consequently, everyone’s skin is unique. With this in mind, Huda set out to create the perfect foundation match for everyone. As a result, her thirty shade Huda Faux Filter Foundation Collection was created to embrace all skin types. Equally important, Huda addresses the need for a flawless coverage foundation. Hence, she developed a full coverage foundation that creates a real-time filter effect.
Huda Faux Filter Foundation Packaging
Formula : Huda Faux Filter Foundation
The Faux Filter Formula is packed with ultra-refined, skin-perfecting ingredients. On the whole, these skin perfecting pigments blur blemishes, conceal hyper-pigmentation and hide imperfections. However, even with the filter-like finish, your skin will still look like skin. Hence, the foundation can double as a concealer, and give heavier coverage. These ultra-refined pigments visibly smooth and even the texture of your skin to create an airbrushed finish.
The formula is enriched with Argan Oil and Centella Asiatica. Both of these ingredients are known for their hydrating properties.
Also, the formula is fade-proof. It blends seamlessly. The semi-matte finish leaves skin matte with a hint of sheen. Hence, your face will have a luminous appearance.
Furthermore, the formula has a strong fragrance. If you are not a perfume lover, or a fragrance fan, this isn’t a foundation for you! I think the perfumed fragrance is too strong. Although, the fragrance eventually fades.
Two Steps To Finding Your Ultimate Foundation Match
Determine Your SkinTone
First, you need to find a flawless match for your skintone, you need to determine what skintone you have: Are you Fair, Light, Medium, Tan or Rich?
Determine Your Undertone
There are three main Undertones to choose from.
First, is a Warm Undertone. Warm may also be referred to as golden, peachy, olive and yellow.
Next is a Cool Undertone. When you have a Cool undertone, it appears blue, red or pink.
Last is a Neutral Undertone. Neutral is when you have attributes of both the Warm and the Cool Undertones.
To Determine your Undertone-
First look at the veins on your wrists. Clearly, all veins are blue. However, if your skin tone is warm, the yellow-golden tint of your skin will give your blue veins the appearance of having a green tinge.
If you are cool toned, your veins will look bluer.
Next, your natural hair and eye colors can determine your skin tone.
Hair – brown, black or blonde
Eyes – blue, grey or green
Hair – red, brown, black, strawberry blonde
Eyes – brown, hazel or amber
Gold and Silver Jewelry
What metal looks gorgeous on your skin?
Gold brings out your warm glow.
Silver makes your skin look alive if you are cool toned.
If you look great in both gold and silver, then your skin is neutral.
How Do You Tan?
Warm toned skin tans quickly.
Cool toned skin burns easily, or burns and then tans.
Neutral toned skin is when you tan slowly, yet you seldom burn your skin.
Your Favorite Lipstick Shade
Cool tone lipstick shades – red lipstick with blue undertones, berry and rosy pink look best. therefore, avoid red lipsticks with yellow and orange tinges.
Warm tone lipstick shades- coral, peachy pink shades, orange toned reds and rosy nude lipsticks look best.
If there no clear warm or cool shades that look best on you, then you have a neutral skin tone.
To choose the perfect Huda beauty Faux Filter Foundation
If you are cool toned – B – Beige has blue tones/ R – Red has red undertones
If you are warm toned – G – Golden has yellow undertones
Neutral toned – N – Neutral
How to Apply Huda Faux Filter Foundation
I applied the foundation with a synthetic foundation brush. Next, I buffed it into my skin with a beauty blender. It is easy to apply. A little goes a long way. 1/2 pump gave me a nice, medium coverage. A full pump will give you flawless, full coverage. The shade chosen for me. Amaretti 310G was not my perfect match. It was a tad too dark for my face. Unfortunately, all of the shades are still difficult to get, so I haven’t been able to try more shades. With this in mind, I feel that Rihanna had the right idea with the Fenty Foundation. Those ten extra shades make it easier to find a spot on match.
I like the dewy luminous finish that is achieved with the Faux Filter Foundation. The skin perfecting ingredients do a great job blurring, concealing and filtering imperfections. Also, the foundation did not go into my fine lines and wrinkles. I hope Huda will hurry up and get those thirty shades back on the market. There is no point in creating thirty shades if your customers cannot get a hold of them.
