Many women struggle to find the right foundation colour for their skin tone, so if you have problems when buying foundation you are not alone. If your foundation is not making you feel great, maybe it is time to try a new one.
Foundation is important because it forms the base of your makeup and holds your other makeup in place, meaning it stays on longer! It also protects your skin from the ageing effects of the environment so choose ones with SPF.
The right foundation colour should blend with your skin tones and be a natural extension of you. The right foundation will camouflage areas you want to hide while highlighting those you want to enhance. It will give you a natural and healthy glow. It is perfect for smoothing out the lines on your face and covering any uneven tones in your skin.
Tips for selecting the right foundation
- Make sure the colour is right for your skin tone. When testing the colours against your jaw line, wait a couple of minutes to allow it to dry. This will give you the best result to select the colour most resembling your skin tone. It should not be obvious you are wearing foundation
- You may find that your skin tone changes with the seasons. If in the summer months you find your skin tans and darkens slightly then your foundation should match this. In the winter months your skin will most likely revert back to its natural colour and you will need a lighter shade of foundation
- Remember that if your foundation is too light, it will wash you out and if it is too dark it will give you a distinct line between your face and neck
