How to find the right foundation for your skin
Foundation best for your skin type
The initial step is finding the foundation that is ideal for your individual skin type. A tinted lotion or a moisturizer doesn’t offer as much scope as a foundation when it comes to coverage; however just pick a heavier foundation if your skin genuinely needs it. In the case of oily skin or warm and damp climate, an oil free foundation is the best way to go about it.
Foundation best for your skin tone
A decent trick for finding the correct shade of foundation is to coordinate it to your chest. This particularly applies to you if you’re great at covering your face and neck with SPF every day before heading out. You can likewise test a shade on the back of your hand and afterward go outside and notice it in the sun if you don’t trust the lighting of the store or if the light is too dull for you inside. No matter what, leave it on for a couple of minutes to perceive how it changes color as it is assimilated into your skin. Additionally, don’t be reluctant to blend different shades. It is best to utilize two distinctive foundation shades for summer and winter (depending how much tan you have gotten), and combine them in between these two seasons.
Never put on foundation to your face if it is not moisturized. In the event that your skin is on the drier side, you’ll likewise need to exfoliate before applying any makeup product. You can use a natural exfoliator too but it’s better to get them from the market. In the event that your moisturizer or foundation doesn’t have SPF in it, you’ll need to slather on sunscreen before any makeup product as well. Firstly, warm the foundation in the palm of your hand, and after that compass it over your face and neck utilizing clean fingers, a foundation brush or a sponge/beauty blender. I really think that fingers work best to hit hard-to-achieve spots; however do whatever suits you best. When you’re applying the foundation, bear in mind about the area where your jaw line meets your neck! Ensure your face and neck coordinate by mixing the foundation into the highest point of your neck too.
Identify your undertone
Look at your bare skin and it’s undertone. If it is pink or rosy, it is a cool undertone but if it is yellow or golden you probably have a warm undertone. If it is a combination and you can’t understand which one you are, go with the neutral undertone. Keep these things in mind if you don’t want you skin to look completely weird under the sunlight after a full face of makeup.
Try it for ten days
When you buy a foundation apply it with a brush and with a sponge. Notice the changes and take pictures of yourself in it with different lighting. Test it like this for ten days and carry on using it if it’s the perfect fit!
