Makeup products are no doubt very risky to be brought online if you are purchasing something that has shade variations. While online purchasing something such as a foundation, it is really important to have tried and tested a product before. However, if you have already done this mistake and brought a foundation shade that doesn’t match your skin because it is way too light, then don’t worry because we got you covered!

What to do with a foundation shade that is too light?

First, you need to check with your online seller if it is returnable or not. However, if it can’t be returned, you can still use it! But how?

In such a case, apply your bronzer before the foundation. Make sure the bronzer is a cream finish product because a liquid foundation over a powdery bronzer will create a mess. Apply your bronzer over the places where you would like to add an edge to your face. Moreover, you can use any cream bronzer. Moving forwards, apply the foundation in between the spaces. Blend it really well with the skin and make the bronzer less edgy with the same effect. The end result will be really satisfactory, however, it will just darken your foundation and won’t be helpful in changing the undertone of your foundation.
