Light Life, Dark Death

by kawrage

I’m trying to buy foundation online, but I’m being asked whether my skin is medium light or dark or medium dark and I have no idea what any of this means.

What are the tones measured against?

And I can’t stop thinking about light as a metaphor for life, dark as a metaphor for death. I can’t stop thinking about Qur’anic verses that employ the same metaphor.
