Shopping from the comfort of your own home comes with many perks. Not having to interact with actual people? Never wondering how much something costs? Ordering while you’re eating or watching TV? Yes, please!

Of course, there are disadvantages as well. When shopping for clothing or shoes, you never really know if something will fit until you try it on. And when it comes to makeup, it’s difficult to tell if a color will complement or match your skin based on the computer image alone.

To make shopping for makeup online easier, game-changing beauty brand ILIA has an amazing shade finder tool that makes it easy to buy the right color the first time. When shopping for an item like their best-selling, super popular Super Serum Skin Tint, you can click the “Find My Shade” button, which gives you two different options for finding your perfect match. You can submit pics of yourself and have the ILIA team make a recommendation, or you can take the Shade Match Quiz. The quiz includes a wide variety of skin tones that you can choose from to find the one that best matches you. From there, you can choose your undertones, and then ILIA will send you the right shade for your skin tone via email. The whole process takes less than five minutes and saves you the hassle of paying for makeup you can’t use.

If you want to put ILIA’s shade finder technology to the test for yourself, use it to find the right color for its Super Serum Skin Tint.
