Choosing the right foundation nowadays can be really overwhelming with enormous amount of customization available in market. Choosing a coffee in Starbucks is easier than choosing the right foundation for your skin, especially when you are a beginner. This article could be your crash course for choosing the right foundation for your skin.
Find the right match :
Foundation oxidizes with wear, and naturally gets darker with the mixture of natural elements along with the oils on your face. Apply potential shades to your chest to see if they are right shade as the most common mistake people make is by choosing a shade by swatches on their forearms but the skin there is darker than face.
Skin undertones matters too :
One foundation can never be enough to match your skin tone. Always choose two foundations to mix and match your skin unless you want to use color corrector. For warm undertones use shades with warm yellow undertones and for cool use those with pinkish undertones.
Level of coverage:
One should keep in mind the kind of coverage they want. If one wants to cover their acne , spots or don't want touch ups then go for full coverage but if you don't like wearing heavy makeup then go for medium or light coverage.
What's your type?
Before purchasing the foundation ask yourself you want matte finish or dewy? If you have dry to normal skin then choose dewy finish and for combination to dry skin go for matte finish.
Season matters too:
Yes! We cannot use the same foundation for the entire year as different seasons have different effects on our skin.
Go ahead and choose wisely between silicone based or normal the choice is yours.
