Seint understands that everyone—and every person’s skin—is unique. Because we’re all different, we can’t just have a “one size fits all” when it comes to makeup. We all have different distractions on our faces that we’d like to remove or diminish. And that’s why Seint created Demi Colour. Demi Colour focuses on filtering the excess colors on your face that are causing distractions and giving you trouble. Seint does this through color science and color solving, and it’s completely customizable to your skin tone. To help you get started, I put together the Demi Colour shades best designed for different skin tones. So today we’re going to talk all about Demi Colour for Light Skin Tones and why Demi Colour perfect for those of you with lighter skin.
What Is Demi Colour?
First things first: What is Demi Colour? Demi Colour is a special makeup line that lets you filter excess color and remove distractions (like melasma, sunspots, and dark circles under the eyes). It also lets you add sculpt (aka, contour) and blush to enhance your natural features. You only use Demi Colour right where you need it, instead of covering your entire face in makeup. This allows your skin’s natural luminosity to shine through.

Understanding Demi Colour Codes
Before we get into the specific Demi Colours for light skin tones, I want to explain how the color code system works with Demi Colour. Demi Colour uses color theory to correct specific spots on your face. For example, if you have dark circles under your eyes, you can use an orange-based color to correct the darkness. This is because dark circles are most often made up of blue undertones, and the opposite of blue is orange. So the orange will help filter the blue and minimize the dark circles.
Each Demi Colour tin is labeled with a letter and a number. The letter stands for the color family (R – Red, O – Orange, Y – Yellow, G – Green, B – Blue, V – Violet). If you see two letters, then the second letter is the main color of that tin. For example, GY is a green yellow, meaning it’s a yellow that contains some green.
The number that follows the letter indicates saturation. 1 is the least saturated, and 7 is the most saturated. 1’s brighten and 3-7’s build color while filtering. These colors are great for adding natural flush to cheeks.
The Perfect Shades for Light Skin Tones
Now that we understand the color code system for Demi Colour, let’s look at the colors best suited for light skin tones. These colors are low in saturation, which is great for lighter skin tones. You want to use low color saturation so that you can blend the colors in more easily. If you use lots of high saturation colors, you’ll be able to see the makeup, and you’ll have a hard time blending and matching to your specific tone.
The best Demi Colour shades for light skin tones are R1, RO1, O1, OY1, YO1, and O3. The colors for light skin tones all fall in the red, yellow, and orange family. The reason for this is that light-skinned people tend to have green, purple, and blue undertones (the opposite colors of red, yellow, and orange). So the red, yellow, and orange colors will help filter the unwanted distractions on your face, like circles under your eyes, melasma, and sunspots.
As you can see, all of the Demi Colour shades for light skin tones have low saturation and specifically filter out excess blues, greens, and purples—all distraction colors found specifically in lighter skin tones. This color combo also includes one color with a little more saturation to help you build some natural color where you want it, like on your cheeks and lips.
