Focus on parts of your face that may need the most coverage first, such as under your eyes, around your nose and mouth, chin and center of forehead—all of which typically require color correction for uneven skin tone.

Understanding Your Undertone

Warm
You tan easily in the sun, and gold jewelry makes your skin glow! The veins on your wrists look green.

Neutral
Both gold and silver jewelry flatter your skin! You can tan in the sun but sometimes burn. The veins on your wrists look blue and green.

Cool
Silver jewelry complements your skin! You burn easily in the sun—and when you roll up your sleeves, your veins look blue.

To make it easier to find your perfect shade of Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream Illumination with SPF 50+, here are the undertones for all 12 shades:
  • Fair—ultra porcelain skin, fairest of fair skin, with warm (yellow) undertone
  • Fair Light—fair skin, if you burn easily in the sun, with cool (pink) undertone
  • Light—light skin with more warmth (yellow) to your skin
  • Light Medium—light to medium skin with cool (pink) undertones
  • Medium—medium skin with warm (yellow) undertones (this is Jamie’s shade!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST! I buy all of your products. I love everything I have bought. Shipping is fast, which I like. Have never returned anything, so I don’tknow about that. Wonderful products.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too Much Glitter/Doesn't Stay Put I love the way the product looks on my skin but it doesn't stay put, as it doesn't seem to sink into your skin, but instead sits on top of it. As a result, it ends up everywhere and everything becomes very glittery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this product! I bought this product on a whim 2 years ago and I’m hooked! So easy to apply, feels and looks great on my skin. Not greasy or shiny but a slight dewy look! Not to heavy and can be sheer or more dramatic if you want! Definitely a staple in my makeup bag!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a keeper! I have a bag full of makeup that has a high SPF. None compares to this product. It goes on smoothly and looks and feels great all day. This is the last one that I will try. It can't be improved upon!

Is this makeup noncomedogenic

Asked by: GiGi28
Hi there! Thanks for reaching out! While all of our products are made with skin-loving ingredients and formulated with sensitive skin in mind, CC Illumination is not non comedogenic. If you prefer a non comedogenic foundation, we recommend trying out our CC Oil Free Matte option instead! We hope you check IT out using the link below!

I have the Full Coverage SPF 50 CC Cream Illumination in a 2.58 oz tube.  I LOVE it.....but I can’t see, to find it here on your website.  I don’t want to run out, but I would like to get this size again if possible.  Do you offer it still in that size?

I have been using this for a long time, did you change the fair shade? Seems to be different and maybe not a cool tone anymore? 

Asked by: Triciab
Hi there! Thank you for reaching out to us. The Fair shade in CC+ Cream Illumination has not changed. IT is a warm shade with yellow undertones. If you find you have a cool undertone, we recommend looking into the shade Fair Light! IT is formulated for fair skin, if you burn easily in the sun, with cool (pink) undertones. We hope this helps!

I love the CC cream and have used the medium for years. But now it's too dark. This time tried the light medium- it's too yellow.  My skin definitely has yellow undertones, not pink.  Any suggestions?

I'm new to IT cosmetics and started with the Illumination CC product. I find that it transfers/rubs off way too easily, even after using a setting powder. I also find it to be greasy feeling. I'm applying it with an IT brush. Any suggestions?

When will IT make a truly cool-toned shade? Fair was too yellow, so I was looking forward to fair-light. Bought some last night, tried it today and I can't see ANY cool tone at all-- just as yellow/warm as fair. So disappointed. Returning it to Ulta. :(
