Dan Read Cosmetics™ has a proven method that will help you select the correct shade the very first time!
How to Match Your Skin Undertones with DRC

Simply follow along with our questionnaire & by the time you’re done, you’ll be able to select YOUR exact, perfect match.

1.  What is your family’s ethnic heritage?

Whether your skin tone is olive or ruddy is determined by your genes-and these are most often determined by where your ancestors lived.  The guidelines below will help you determine where to start.  After each location/area of the world you’ll see which Silver Screen Series™ foundation family, and which shades in particular, are best suited to the most common complexions from that area:

a) light Mediterranean = Olive Fawn 1 or 2; Natural 1; Far East 1; possibly Soft Ivory 3

b) dark Mediterranean = Olive Fawn 3; Far East 2 or 3

c) western European/Scandinavian = Fairest; Soft Ivory; Natural; Olive Fawn 1

d) eastern Europe = Olive Fawn 1, 2 or 3Far East 1; possibly Natural 2 or 3

e) Asian/Middle Eastern = Far East; Olive Fawn; possibly Olive Sienna 1

f) American Indian/Hispanic = Olive Fawn; Far East

g) Pacific Islanders = Far East; Goldtone; possibly Olive Sienna 1

h) Dark skinned individuals or mixed heritage (with Caucasian) = Olive Fawn; Far East; or in rare instances the Goldtone.

This questionnaire has been used for over 10 years to match people over the phone & continues to have 95%+ success rate.
