Choosing and Applying Foundation
Foundation helps to smooth out your skin tone, cover blemishes and offers you a healthier glow. Applying makeup without a foundation base actually accentuates unsightly skin problems, rather than conceal them. Selecting and applying foundation is a simple procedure, but there are pitfalls. The following are the step-by-step procedures, which enables you to choose and apply foundation.
Step 1: Decide what type of look you want. Foundations generally include coverage from sheer to heavy and finish that range from matte to satin. Degree of coverage and type of finish is purely your own personal choice.
Step 2: Once you have chosen the ideal formulation for you, you are ready to choose the perfect shade to match your skin tone. There are good selections of foundation shades available from the lightest of shades for pale skin to shades for the darkest skin tones. The following are the ways, which allows you to know how to select the perfect shade for you.
Steps to select the perfect Shade
Step 3: Begin with clean hands and face and apply the moisturizer appropriate to your skin type. Allow your skin to moisturize for a few minutes, particularly if your skin is oily.
Applying foundation to clean moisturized skin ensures you have a perfect base with which to work.
Apply foundation at least ten minutes after moisturizing. If you do not allow the moisturizer to absorb into the skin, your foundation may come-off.
Step 5: This step is optional but you may find it beneficial. A light brushing of powder on your foundation sets the foundations thereby making it long lasting.
If oil surfaces during the day, spot that area with a tissue and then apply a light dusting of powder.
