So, in the previous part we talked about moisturizing and priming our skin. If you haven’t checked it out yet make sure you do. Anyhow, today it’s going to be all about our foundation.
Foundation is the main part of your makeup. It can make or break your look so it is always wise to use it rightly. By using it wisely I mean picking up the right color, putting it rightly on your skin and most importantly choosing the right formula for your skin type.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT COLOR:
I know girl, it isn’t easy to choose the right color but AT LEAST we can try to find something as close as possible. I know that back in the day there were usually two shades to choose from but now when we have so many brands e.g. Aodour it shouldn’t be hard to find your shade.
This thing annoys me that people want to look fair by wearing a light shade of foundation but instead, they look like a clown. You need to be comfortable in your own skin.
Two preferable ways when choosing the right shade:
1. Go as close to your natural color as possible.
2. Go one shade darker always and use light-colored concealer to lighten up a bit.
3. Make your own by mixing two shades of foundation. ( As in the pic below)
APPLICATION OF FOUNDATION:
Using a beauty blender is the easiest way to apply foundation yet it needs patience. The right way for it is to dab it on your skin if still there are streaks of foundation take your time to blend it in.
However, blenders may not be the best for some of us. For those who use a brush. FIND A GOOD ONE!
The key no streak foundation is to take your time to blend. That’s it.
TYPE OF FOUNDATION:
NEVER use a matte foundation. Go for illuminating and dewy foundations.
Use matte foundations.
Use MATTE foundations during Summers but change to dewy ones during winters or for dry areas.
That’s it you have aced your foundation!!!
