I’m delighted you asked!

A Sephora makeup artist locations the color iq device, which basically appears like a hybrid handheld camera/Star trip tricorder, against your skin in three locations to take color readings.

But first, lemme take a selfie!
You can match to either your deal with or neck. I opted to go with my neck, since my deal with is much redder (I utilize a great deal of exfoliating products).

The gadget utilizes that data to designate you a Pantone color iq number, which it then matches from among all of the foundations Sephora carries.

My Pantone color iq number is 3Y09.

“3Y09, please report to the medical bay for assimilation!”

The Starfleet cadet/makeup artist who assisted me explained that the “Y” in the color iq number refers to the general skin tone (mine is yellow), while the numbers at the end refer to its depth, or darkness.
