Foundation for Beginners
Before you pick the formula, you need to find out the right formulation for your skin.
Oily Skin- look for oil-free,oil-control
Dry skin- moisturizing foundations, hydrating, moisture-rich.
Combination of both- Cream-to-powder bases work great.
Mineral foundations work well with all skin types, especially sensitive skin.
- Consider if you want a light or medium-coverage. If you have good skin, but want to even out a few ruddy areas, consider a light coverage. For women with really uneven skin tone or blemishes, consider a medium-coverage foundation.
- For professional help show up to the makeup counter with a clean, fresh face that is moisturized. Don’t show up already wearing foundation.
- Make sure you test the product in broad day light and not just in the store lightning, as it can be deceiving.
- Never test it on your hand. Always test it on your jawline & then double test it on your forehead to see if the it matches your natural skin tone.
- Sometimes you have to blend two different shades to match your skin tone.
- Drug store makeup can get you confused that’s why it is always best to seek out professional.
