So today, I want to do a post about foundation (after all, it’s called foundation for a reason…). It’s so important to get this step right because it’s always obvious when someone is wearing foundation that is cakey or isn’t the right color for their skin tone. The point of foundation is not to look like you have layers of makeup on but to help your skin look its best. Here’s a good place to start…
Here is some of my Favorite Foundation and how looks on the skin , I'll link the links for the products , on the pictures .
Matching a Shade to Your Skin Tone
A good trick for finding the right shade of foundation is to match it to your chest—especially if you’re good at protecting your face and neck with SPF. You can also test a color on the back of your hand and then walk outside if you don’t trust the store lighting. Either way, leave it on for a few minutes to see how it changes as it is absorbed into your skin. Also, don’t be afraid to mix colors. I use two different foundation colors for summer and winter (depending how much sun I’ve gotten), and mix them together in between those two seasons.
Never apply foundation to un-moisturized skin. If your skin is on the drier side, you’ll also want to exfoliate prior to applying any products. If your moisturizer or foundation doesn’t have SPF in it, you’ll want to apply sunscreen pre-makeup too. Then, warm the foundation in the palm of your hand, and then sweep it across your face and neck using clean fingers, a foundation brush or a beauty blender. When you’re applying foundation, don’t forget about the spot where your jaw line meets your neck! Make sure your face and neck match by blending the foundation into the top of your neck as well.
So I hope you enjoy this tips , and can use on your daily makeup routine. Xoxo Paula Forrest
