Foundation is a tricky product to get right at times. The general idea is to disguise the imperfections that you are self conscious about on your face; the spots, the scars and tired shadows under your eyes. Choosing the right foundation can feel tedious though, because too much and you look like a clown, too little and the result will look patchy.
No need to panic though. Foundation is easy to figure out, so long as you understand your skin, and what products work best for that type. Then when combined with your new haircut from Rush Hair or the local salon, you’ll look a million dollars as you walk down the street. Just remember the points below, and you’ll in theory find the perfect foundation.
Skin tone – You should test foundation on your hand before you buy it, to make sure it matches your skin tone. Too light, and you’ll look washed out, too dark and your face could look orange. Using a lighter shade in the daytime, and a slightly darker one at night is a good idea.
Dry skin – If you have dry skin, you should use a liquid or hydrating powder foundation. The liquid one will have a creamy consistency, while the powder has ingredients that together offer a little moisture, and also go further than the average powder.
Oily skin – Use oil-free powder or liquid foundation if your skin is oily. The powder absorbs the oil, helping keep your skin smoothly finished, and the liquid foundation will not add to your natural oil, leaving your skin with less embarrassing shine.
Combination skin – This skin type is tricky, and ought to be tackled with a powder foundation, rather than liquid. Powder will mean you can apply it wherever you are the most oily, and not anywhere else, meaning you can control the amount on your face better.”
