Step-by-step instructions:

1. In the drugstore aisle find the three shades closest to your skin tone. COVERGIRLs NatureLuxe Foundation shows the color right on the bottle, making it easier to choose.

2. Next, take the foundation, along with a compact mirror near the window. Hold the foundation close to your face and find the one that matches!

3. To check the shade at home, put a dime size amount of foundation inyour palm and, using your finger, swipe it on the side of your cheek.

4. Blend it in all directions until there are no more lines, the color should be seamless with your skin.

5. Always check that the color matches perfectly by looking in a mirror in natural light.
