1. Discover your skin type:
While picking a foundation it's best to know your type of skin. Foundations today come in such a large number of various types– cream, powder, fluid, mousse–that it's staggering to attempt and make sense of which is best for you. Foundations are planned for slick, dry, full grown, typical, delicate skin. Remember that most ladies' skin sort changes with the climate. In winter, you may be dry, while in summer you may be slick. On the off chance that you have dry skin, go for a hydrating fluid or a cream. In the event that you have slick skin, then a mineral, powder or sans oil fluid recipe is ideal.
2. Be familiar with your undertones:
You've most likely heard somebody discussing undertones – the tint or cast of shading underneath your skin – before. Knowing your coloring hues is fundamental to finding the right foundation. There are three types of tints: Warm, neutral and cool. In case you're not certain what you are, I suggest taking a look at your wrist. Does the shading look more pink or yellow, or does it fall some place in the middle? Pink means you have cool undertones, yellow is warm and, if you're some place in the middle, you're neutral.
3. Discover your shade:
Pick a few shades that come nearest to your skin tone. Hold the samples to your jaw line and consider the shade of your neck, which is frequently paler than your face. Be aware of poor, fluorescent overhead lighting that can cast unflattering shadows. (I can't STAND being in stores with nasty lighting! Yuck!) Stand close to a window or head outside to check your shading. The right tone ought to vanish into your skin.
4. Pick your coverage:
Consider your foundation goal. Perhaps lighter coverage in summer and a heavier, creamier base in colder months. A simple way to go is using tinted lotions. Easy to apply and nice, light coverage every time. If your skin tone is uneven and you have certain facial coloring you'd like to cover, consider a medium-weight foundation. Most medium-weight foundations can be easily layered which makes them perfect year-around.
5. Apply like a professional:
The general purpose of foundation is to enhance your skin, not shroud it. You need to apply foundation with the goal of looking natural – you shouldn't see where your applied foundation begins and ends. Blend, blend, blend! Tinted lotions and BB creams: Rub them onto skin with clean fingers, or use a makeup sponge. Fluids, mousses, and creams: Use a sponge to create a smooth look. Buff, mixing outward. Top your cream-based foundation with a translucent powder. Powder base foundation: Use a brush, using very little product and build if more coverage is needed.
Foundation doesn't need to be a mystery. Along with taking great care of your skin, foundation can help you protect your skin and achieve a healthy glow.
