Finding the right foundation can be every woman's nightmare - There's so much to think about & so much variety these days. What foundation is best for your skin type (oily, combi or dry)? What type of coverage do you want. To help you, here is my quick guide to Foundation selecting which will help you to achieve a flawless base.
Selecting the right foundation can make all the difference to your overall finish. If your complexion is dry, opt for a liquid or stick foundation that is packed full of hydrating and nourishing properties.
Powder foundations are ideal for oily skin as they help to absorb excess oil and eliminate shine. Or look for oil-free foundations that won't slip on the skin.
For combination skin a tinted moisturiser and a concealer can do the trick as well as CC & BB Creams.
What is the best coverage?....
If you're looking for a foundation that is light and enhances your natural beauty, opt for a light coverage foundation or a tinted moisturiser. If you want to even out your skin tone and revive radiance choose a medium coverage foundation. For an airbrushed effect for special occasions or to disguise scarring and acne opt for a full coverage foundation.
Types of Foundation……
Liquid - Liquid foundation is a popular option as the smooth silk like consistency glides effortlessly onto the skin and easily blends.
Cream - Cream foundations come in a compact or stick and are a great handbag must-have if you're on-the-go.
Pressed Powder - Pressed powder foundations are an easy way to even out the skin tone and get a smooth finish. They are also great for eliminating shine in problem areas like the T-zone.
Mineral Powder - Made from pure natural ingredients, mineral makeup is ideal for those with allergies or sensitive skin.
1. For best results, test in natural light or near a window so you get a true idea of the colour. Make sure you also dab onto the jawline to get a flawless and even finish. 2. The key to a flawless finish is to blend well. 3. Ensure that your neck and décolletage are the same shade as your face. 4. If you have dry skin, make sure you are following a good skin care routine with a hydrating moisturiser so you have the best possible canvas to start with.
