How to Choose the Best Foundation

Choosing the best foundation could be an overwhelming job. Like purchasing skin care products, there are lots of foundations to select from that it could be hard to choose which one is perfect for you. Below are tips to help you choose the right foundation to suit your budget and your skin as well.

Skin Type

The first important thing to consider when buying a foundation is your skin type. Do you have dry, oily skin or a combination of both? In case you have dry skin, you should buy a moisture-rich foundation. If you have oily skin, you must search for a foundation that helps in control oil. When you have a combination of dry and oily skin, it is best to consider where you are more oily or dry and utilize that as your starting point.

Shade or Colour of Foundation

To start, select a few diverse colors that you believe are closest to your skin tone. It’s always best to choose yellow-based foundations due to the fact that these look natural for a lot of skin tones. If you’re extremely fair, you might need to try a pink, cooler shade of foundation. Take time and compare the colors.

Trying the Foundation

A lot of buyers or shopper will dab a foundation on their hands. On the other hand, this is basically extremely diverse in texture and shade of your face, so try it on your jawline to know if it blends or complements the natural color of your skin.

Trying on a foundation in a department store that does not have natural light could be hard. If possible, walk outside with a small amount of foundation on your jawline and use your own mirror to tell how the color looks in natural light. It must not be so dark that your neck is a contrast to the shade on your face. Go for a natural shade.

Things to Look for in a Foundation

Investing in your skin is very essential. When it comes to makeup, you do not have to spend a lot but you must not compromise on superiority either.

Foundation must be long lasting as well as suit what you need. For example, if you like long wear and strong coverage, buy a foundation made to do just that. In case you like a light weight foundation, search for foundations which provide that amount of coverage.

You might event need to purchase two diverse foundations. One for day use and one for night time use as you may need different things from a foundation on various occasions. 

A reliable foundation is oil free and water-based in order to sit well on skin. It must contain active ingredients to protect and hydrate the skin while wearing it.
