We know it can be difficult to choose colors from a computer screen. It helps that one of the beauties of mineral makeup is that a number of colors will work on each person. It is so hard to convince people of that until they have tried it. Because the minerals blend with your skin instead of forming a layer over the skin, it picks up the shades of your skin. Therefore, you can use a number of colors. The other thing to remember is that our skin isn't all one color but rather a mixture of colors which is why so many can work. That's the fun of mineral makeup.
