I need you to write some content for a website. How to choose perfect foundation?
What do you do to cover your scars, acne or even blemishes few hours before a party? Just walk straight without doing anything… or cover it up with a foundation you know nothing about? No, please don’t do this… don’t risk harming your skin with unknown products and worsen the situation for your skin.
Different types of cream foundations such as Powder, Liquid and Cream based are available in the market and of this variety, Cream based foundations are in demand, especially owing to their thicker concentrations and easy to apply and blend features.
Foundation is important to get this step right because it’s always obvious when someone is wearing foundation that is cakey or isn’t the right color for their skin tone. The point of foundation is not to look like you have layers of makeup on but to help your skin look its best and enhancing your skin tone.
Matching a Shade to Your Skin Tone:
A good trick for finding the right shade of foundation is to match it to your chest and neck especially if you’re good at protecting your face and neck .Never try the foundation on on hand it's not your real skin tone if sake person isnsits, Always try on neck or chest area. You can walk outside if you don’t trust the store lighting. Either way, leave it on for a few minutes to see how it changes as it is absorbed into your skin. Also, don’t be afraid to mix colors. I use two different foundation colors for summer and winter (depending how much sun I’ve gotten), and mix them together in between those two seasons.
Application Tips :
Never apply foundation to un-moisturized skin. If your skin is on the drier side, you’ll also want to exfoliate prior to applying any products. If your moisturizer or foundation doesn’t have SPF in it, you’ll want to slather on sunscreen pre-makeup too. Then, warm the foundation in the palm of your hand, and then sweep it across your face and neck using clean fingers, a foundation brush or a beauty blender. I actually think that fingers work best for hitting hard-to-reach spots, but that can be a matter of personal preference. When you’re applying foundation, don’t forget about the spot where your jaw line meets your neck! Make sure your face and neck match by blending the foundation into the top of your neck as well. Blend as much well you can and be best in it.
How to Apply Foundation Cream:
1. Cleanse, Tone and Moisturize your face to make it ready for the makeup.
2. Take some Cream foundation on a damp makeup sponge for application.
3. Use your fingers to apply pressure gently to blend.
4. In the end, apply some powder to keep it matte.
Do's and don't's of foundation:
○DON’T apply foundation directly to freshly cleaned skin.
○DON’T make the mistake that many of us do by applying too much foundation. It’s best to start with a small amount
○DO find a foundation that matches your skintone closely and is the amount of coverage you need
