skinIQ probably got your match wrong honestly. You should go to the store you bought it from and personally look at the shades that are either lighter or darker depending on what you need. In my experience, looking "orange" means its too dark and also too yellow. So you should look for something maybe one or two shades lighter. Dip a finger or sponge in and swipe it on your neck. Look in the mirror with the lights in the store, but also walk outside onto the sidewalk and ask a store associate for a mirror to hold or just use a compact from your purse. In the natural light it will be easier to tell how well a particular shade matches your natural skin tone.
If you find a shade that's the right lightness / intensity but it still seems too yellow / orange, then try and find a shade that looks more pink / has a pink undertone. If you don't know how to do this, then ask a store associate to help you find a foundation with a pinker undertone that suits you better. If there isn't one in the d&g perfect creamy foundation lineup, then they will be able to direct you to similar foundations that have suitable shades. I'm thinking Diorskin Nude or YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat or Armani Maestro or Lasting Silk. If you want to look outside Sephora, you should DEFINITELY check out the chanel perfection lumiere lineup, as they have a REALLY GOOD selection of NON YELLOW shades with rosy pink undertones that will probably have a good match for you

i have yet to find a foundation liquid or powder that I didn't have to mix to get the correct foundation. D&G has bunches of colors that are not orange. look for a lighter color
