How To Pick The Right Foundation

Lots of women get overwhelmed when it comes to picking out the right foundation color.

Too dark and you look like a clown; too light and you look like a ghost.

If you want to find the perfect fit for you — look no further.

How To Pick The Right Foundation

Pick A Foundation That Works For Your Skin Type.

The first step to picking out the right foundation is knowing your skin type.

Once you know your skin type, picking the right formula is a breeze.

If you have dry skin you want to choose a liquid foundation and hydrating powders only.  Anything else could cause your makeup to flake off.

When your skin is oily make sure you use oil-free liquid or powder foundation. These types of foundations contain powders that absorb oil and give you a matte, smooth finish.

With combination skin, the best strategy is to apply a powder foundation.  This will allow you to distribute the oil-absorbing makeup where you need it and NOT where you don’t.

Match Your Shade To Your Skin Tone

The second step to picking out the right foundation is matching your skin tone.

I find the easiest way to see if a foundation matches your skin is it to put in on your jawline from your ear to your chin.

Look at your face in natural lighting to see if the shade you have picked blends well with your tone.

Also, don’t be afraid to mix colors.

I use two different foundation colors — one in the summer that is a little darker than the one I use in the winter.

In between seasons, I like to mix the shades together to get the perfect match!

Extra Tips

Use a primer before you put on your foundation to get a polished and flawless look.

Make sure to always blend your foundation onto your neck as well to create a perfect match.

After you apply foundation use a good makeup setting spray so that your makeup doesn’t rub off on anything.

It really is that simple now that you know all the steps to pick out the perfect foundation!

Being armed with this information you will now have the confidence to feel good in your foundation.  If you still have questions please drop me a comment below and I will be glad to address them.
