We want to help you choose the perfect Smitten Cosmetics colour for your unique skin.

The Fitzpatrick scale is a numerical classification system for human skin colour. It was developed in 1975 by Thomas B. Fitzpatrick, a Harvard dermatologist, as a way to estimate how skin responds to the sun.

Smitten Cosmetics offers colours from I – IV on the Fitzpatrick scale.
