The purpose of this study was to classify foundation colors by applying personal colors and then was to figure out the consistency in base and brightness between the personal color system (PCS) foundation colors with the face and skin color measurement and the self-diagnosis foundation colors.
Data were collected from 40 women aged 20–50 years, living in the capital area. The collected materials were obtained the frequency and percentage by using SPSS WIN 27.0 and were carried out χ2 test, One-way ANOVA, t-test (verification), and descriptive statistics analysis.
The foundation colors were inspected according to a personal color type. Consequently, the foundation colors appeared to be the Warm(Yellow) base as a type of spring and autumn of being sorted into Warm tone type, the Cool(Pink) base color as a type of summer and winter of being categorized into Cool tone, No. 21 brightness as a type of spring and summer, and No. 23 brightness as a type of autumn and winter.
The results of this study can be considered to be what the PCS foundation color classification is available through the personal color application and to be what the outcome on women’s self-diagnosis foundation color measurement increases the availability of PCS foundation color classification. These findings arranged a theoretical ground on the skin color expression suiting themselves and on color matching through applying personal colors when women select foundation colors and are expected to be likely used as basic data in beauty field.
