I went to Kicks, a makeup shop chain in Sweden, to get my skin tone code. They make it thus. With a little gear they point on three places of your face and so get a skin tone code with which you can buy the foundations that match your skin color.
I have done it twice. First time the shop assistant measured on three points of my cheeks, which are often red, and very red then, because I had been walking briskly in town. The result thus became fawlty as I am more yellow/golden basically. But may obviously be useful for choosing a blushing shade. So yesterday I did a test again in another shop of the chain, c and told her not to measure where I was reddish. She then measured at three points on the neck and the color I was matched to was a Max Factor somewhat number 55. I found out this color’s name is Buff Beige, which sounds perfectly allright. Buff being a color I look good in.
From Youtube comes this video, with Alice Red putting on foundation:
