Keep in mind a few of these tips also as you pick a foundation:
1. trying picking the shade once you check it in day light. The lighting in the store can have a different effect as compared to day light. Due to this sometimes you end up with the wrong shade.
2. Always try the shade on the jaw line and not at the back of your hand. This usually causes you to pick the wrong shade as the skin on your hand is bound to darker due to skin exposure.
