Are you interested in learning more about Seint makeup, but you don’t know what colors would work well for you? If you want to try the famous Seint IIID foundation out but you don’t want to work with a Seint Artist in person or send a selfie to a stranger to get color matched online, then this is for you! I’ll show you how to color match yourself with Seint makeup. I’ve made this guide to help you determine what colors will be best to put in your custom IIID foundation makeup palette.
What is Seint IIID Foundation?
First off, what is Seint IIID Foundation?? IIID foundation is a cream makeup that is meant to be worn in just one layer. Say goodbye to the days of layering tons of makeup on your face and say hello to one quick layer. Each foundation color (highlight, contour, cheek, and illuminator) is a foundation but in a different color. So, you use a paint-by-numbers method to apply the makeup and blend! It looks really funny and might seem awkward at first, but once you get the hang of it, you will love the simplicity of the process and how it makes you look and feel! And the best thing about Seint makeup is that everything (minus mascara) fits into just one compact! One!! Each makeup comes in a tin that you put in a magnetic compact. You can move the colors around, completely customize your compact, and replace as needed! You no longer have to wait until all the other colors are used up. You can replace each tin when it’s gone. You save so much space, time, and money with this makeup!
A Guide to Picking Your Right Seint Makeup Colors
Buying makeup online can seem daunting. There are so many color options that you have no idea what shade will look best on you! Here’s a guide that will help walk you through what colors and products will be best for you and your coloring. You can try your best to determine what colors will work for you, but if you happen to get a shade that doesn’t work well for you, no worries! Seint has an amazing return policy! You have 30 days to return or exchange anything that doesn’t work well for you. You just have to pay for return shipping.
How to Choose a Seint Highlight Shade
When it comes to finding your perfect highlight (foundation) shade, it’s helpful to see what shades work well for other women. Most women that buy Seint makeup like to buy 1-3 highlight colors. Your highlight can act as our foundation color to help even out your skin tone and it can also act as a concealer and or brightener. Our skin changes shades throughout the year so it’s helpful to have a few highlight colors to bounce between. Most women are darker in the summer and lighter in the winter so it’s great to have a lighter and darker highlight shade in your custom compact. As you look at the pictures of women below, try to find a skin coloring that looks the most similar to yours. If you are between colors, then I suggest investing in more than one highlight to ensure you have the right match. Determine what color you look like the most and then shop the HIGHLIGHT shades and add it to your shopping cart. (I purposefully didn’t include Moonlit or Sunlit as option. Moonlit is rarely used on women because it is so light. It works great as a brightening highlight for under the eyes though. Sunlit is a great but finicky color and it’s very hard to match online).
How to Choose a Seint Contour Shade
Let’s talk about CONTOUR! This is the best part about Seint IIID foundation! Contour is the magic sauce to your makeup routine! But, not all contour colors will look great with your skin coloring. So, let’s break it down….
- Determine if you have light, medium, or dark skin coloring.
- If you have light skin, then these will work great on you: Aspen, Walnut, Ash, Stone, Olive, Henna
- If you have medium skin, then these will work great on you: Olive, Henna, Astoria, Indigo
- If you have dark skin, then these will work great on you: Indigo or Cola
- Cool Contours: Aspen, Ash, Henna
- Warm Contours: Walnut, Stone, Olive
- Neutral Contours: Astoria, Indigo
- To help narrow down what contour shade to choose, look at your hair! If you have an ashy hair color, then a cooler contour would look great on you. If you have a warmer/golden hair color, then a warmer contour will look great on you.
You can also determine whether you’re cool, warm, or neutral skin tone by this simple little quiz:
- What are the colors of the vein on your wrist?
- In between
- When you wear jewelery, which color helps you feel more radiant and glowing?
- What colors help you feel more alive & beautiful when you wear them?
- Black and white
- Off-white and browns
- What color hair do you have?
- Blonde, brown, black or hair with ashy tones
- Strawberry blonde, red, brown, black or hair with golden tones
- A mixture or gray hair
- What colors do you tend to wear and gravitate towards?
- Blues, greens, blue-greens, pink, purples
- Yellows, oranges, reds, yellow-greens, ivories, olive greens
- All the colors
Answers: Mostly As: cool skin tone Mostly Bs: warm skin tone Mostly Cs: neutral skin tone
Another tip is to look at your hair. Matching your contour to your hair will also work great! If you have warmer color hair, then choose a warmer shade of contour. If you have a cooler hair color, then choose a cooler contour shade. And the same with neutral.
How to Choose a Seint Lip & Cheek Shade
Seint LIP & CHEEK colors double as both a blush and lipstick/lip gloss! Finding a blush and lip color is fun! It’s all about your personal preference and lifestyle. But here is a little advice when choosing your shade… If you’re looking for a good cheek color, then a satin finish will be best. The satin lip & cheek colors will apply and stay better on your skin. If you’re looking for a good lip color, then the gloss or semi-gloss work great. And you can even layer and mix colors to create your own look! Most women like to have several lip & cheek shades in their compact so they can mix and match and choose a color depending on their mood and outfit.
How to Choose a Seint Illuminator
What is ILLUMINATOR? Illuminator is meant to add a pretty glow! You can apply it to the top of your cheekbones, the bow of your lip, under your brow…anywhere you want to have a glistening goddess glow! If you want a subtle glow, then the cream illuminators will work best. If you want a more dramatic glow, then the powder illuminators will be your best friend! The cream illuminators are really easy to apply because you can use your finger. The powder illuminators are more of a statement with the sparkle and require a brush to apply. Here’s a guide to know which cream illuminator to buy:
- Light Skin: Pearl or Honey
- Medium Skin: Honey, Angel, or Rose Gold
- Dark Skin: Rose Gold or Glow
If you want more drama or if you have oily skin, then you will love the powder illuminators! Photoshop is my personal fave and I wear it daily! It adds the perfect shimmery pop to any look!
