Finding Your Fenty Beauty Foundation Shade

How do I find my shade in Fenty Beauty?? This question is asked almost daily since the launch of Fenty Beauty. With such a diverse range of colors, its easy to get overwhelmed. I will try and give you references for a good majority of the colors, including shades from other brands that the people who matched to that color normally wear.

Another thing I should mention is I have not dealt with oxidizing of this foundation. From what I have researched, it just looks darker as it dries down. It also generally takes about 1-2 minutes for the foundation to dry down completely.  So don’t be afraid if it looks lighter in the store, it will dry down to a slightly darker matte finish.

  • I would love to try Fenty Beauty Foundation. Finding my shade by just looking at pics would be a big prob.
    I don’t know my skin tone shade. I use Fit Me in 340 and Black Opal in Truly Topaz. These shades come off as being a little too light sometimes

  • Keylynne

    This was an amazing guide on how to find your shade. I see my frustration with Fenty may have been because I needed to try another shade. The comparisons were so helpful. THANK YOU.

  • Ijeoma Hadassah Regala

    Thank you so much for this!!!! I think I definitely know what shade I am now !

  • Chidimma Ekwem

    Love this post! It so detailed about all of the shades and compared to other brands! Sis this is Amazing!

  • Shariyka Romero

  • Erica Nicole Eubanks

    • Do you mind sharing what shades you normally wear??

  • Heather Brandon

    I haven’t heard of this line before. I appreciate the comparison to other brands, that helps so much.

  • This is such a great resource! I’ve heard great things about this line and I lovelovelove that there are so many shades! It can be hard to find the right one, though, so this is super helpful!

    • I love the inclusiveness of the brand, and it stays sold out in Sephora

  • My Veteran Woman Life

    I’ve not heard of the line. I don’t often wear foundation but when I do I have a hard time matching my skin tone.

    • You shouldn’t have a problem finding a match in this one!

  • I have never done this! Ive heard of the launch of Rhianna’s new line. Love the name, not even sure what it means. I havent been wearing Foundation, just powder

  • Shannon Marie

    I have heard SUCH great things about Fenty! I love how many shades there are – I need to try it. This post is such a great resource!
