Fast Foundation Advice – Tip #1

Hi Lovelies,

Foundation is probably one of the most important steps in creating a flawless look, so applying an undetectable base is the first step!

Here are some simple tips to ensure you make the right choices.

Tips:

If you’re shopping at a department store

#1 – Swipe three possible matches on your lower cheek or jawline (the shade should closely match your neck as well as your face)

#2 – Take a mirror and head towards a window or outside so you can see what it looks like in the natural light (very important)

#3 – The colour that fades into your skin without .much blending is the winner

If your shopping at a drug store/chemist 

#1 – Determine whether your skin tone is pale/medium or dark

#2 – Using your skin tone, use the bottle shade name as a guide

#3 – Pale skin tends to have redness, so it’s best that you stay away from pink-tonned foundation, look for colours like beige or buff to neutralise redness

#4 – If you are in the middle/medium look for tones that have warm undertones. Choose colours like warm , medium or golden.

#5 – Dark skin hues should look for colours like tan, sable or chestnut

Remember these handy hints next time you are looking for the right foundation. Be sure to keep in mind that the right foundation does not mask your face but simply blends out any of your imperfections and still shows the true beauty of your skin.
