I was going through old pictures and noticed that even as a toddler/young child my neck was wayyyyy whiter than my face. Sometimes my face looks a little flushed but for the most part it is about a shade or two darker. The summer time is brutal, I'll get some color on my face but the neck remains vampire.

You are watching: My face is darker than my neck

I've finally found my HG foundation (Lorac Natural Performance Foundation in NP1), it matches my face perfectly. But then sometimes I notice how much paler my neck is. It's not extremely noticeable, but enough for me to feel self conscious. :(

Sometimes I just feel like I can't win with makeup. If I go any whiter I look weird. I try blending down my neck but it's a lot of work and not so effective.

I just know this is a place where other MUA's will understand, hear me roar!

Rant over. Thanks for reading.

Have you tried taking a big fluffy brush and bronzing your neck a little?

I will try that. I don't even own a bronzer because I've always been afraid of warm and brassy tones.

I have pigmentation and redness in my face and I do use a slightly lighter shade to match my neck, chest and hands better. I can't go as light with my face as other exposed skin because it will start looking a bit costumeish but I can sort of meet it halfway. I contour around the edges of my face and bring it down to my neck too to further blend the two together.

I'm exactly the same because my face is so red! You have to match to your neck and go "vampire" or use a bronzer on your neck. If it's redness, a green color corrector is great to have. As u/noys said below, it's good to meet in the middle with your skin tones.

Skin Base 3.5 (neutral)

My face is a shade darker than my neck too. (Neck: Skinbase 2, Face: Skinbase 3.5). I aim for foundation that matches my face and I try to blend it downwards. Foundation that matches my face is just too pale.
