A Beauty Guide to Using Foundation

Most young women and adult women too, use makeup foundation on their skin to even out skin tone, cover up blemishes or scars, and give an overall soft appearance to their facial skin. While makeup foundation can look great and very natural, some people do not use the correct foundation for their skin type and color, and they may be using the wrong application process as well. This article will aim to clear up any questions or concerns you may have about using foundation as a part of your makeup and skincare routine. Read on to learn more.

First of all, you need to find your perfect shade of foundation. Makeup foundation comes in several different consistencies or types: liquid, cake to liquid, cake powder, loose powder, cake form in a stick, and mousse form. There are advantages to each type of foundation, however generally speaking, if you have oily skin you should opt for a loose powder or cake powder, and if you have dry skin, you should opt for a cake form of foundation or a liquid form.


Foundation For skin



To find your perfect foundation shade, go to a makeup counter at a department store. Talk with a makeup artist or makeup consultant, and try a few different shades. Always test out your foundation on your chin line, as this is the most accurate representation of your entire facial skin tone, and it shows how the foundation will look next to your neck. You do not want your face to be a different color than your neck.



Foundation routine – how to get a flawless face

Once you find your perfect color of foundation, ask for a sample. You need to use a sample before purchasing an entire bottle of product, because then you can try it out at home before spending a lot of money.

At home, wash your face thoroughly with a gentle cleanser, pat dry, apply a light UV protective moisturizer, wait until the moisturizer dries, and put on a makeup primer. Now cover up any blemishes with a concealer, and finally, you are ready to apply your foundation. Use a foundation brush or disposable sponges, and use light gentle strokes in your application. Make sure to blend every bit into your skin so that there are no stroke lines in the foundation. More skin protection guides by New York Skin Solutions.
