Finding the perfect foundation may seems an easy task, but most women delay, and, to set the tone and the foundation type suitable for your skin, and if there’s one thing we all know is that this is the one that can transform basic products in a Californian or a friendly ghost diva and, in a matter of seconds, and it takes us hours to finish.
To try to make it a little easier for you, I decided to make this post to explain a bit about the properties of some foundations and for which skin types are indicated.
Before choosing a foundation, two questions need to be asked:
- 1) Why do I want a foundation? To cover imperfections, moisturize, protect from the sun, work, use at night. …
- 2) What is my skin type? Oily, normal, dry …
As soon as you answer the two questions above, it is a little less complicated to decide your foundation!
To begin with, to talk about the type of skin that, you will need a greater knowledge of the facts, my skin is super oily, so to avoid the makeup dripping from my face, I use more glossy and brighter foundations. The ideal bases are oil-free, i.e. those who have in their formula a greater amount of water than oil or gel. Currently my darlings are the foundations with Matte or opaque finish, they hold steady even in humidity and leave a velvety aspect that ends up dismissing the use of the dust on a daily basis (I only use when I want a more dramatic look with 0% of imperfections).
Dry skin usually looks dehydrated and desiccated. Those who have that kind of skin should use the foundations with matte effect. Here the general rule is reversed and the ideal are the bases that have components like emollients and moisturizers, with a larger quantity of oil than water in its composition. I prefer foundations that are liquid or creamy, as these tend to hydrate the skin.
For those pretty divas with perfect skin, everything is easier, because in this case there is no compound to be avoided. Here the important thing is that you know what effect you want to achieve (opaque or luminous skin), which cover (light, medium, or high), how long, and so on. Any foundation type can be a good thing!
In choosing the tone of your foundation it is important to ALWAYS TEST on the FACE, because the tone of the hands, arms or any other part of the body will never be exactly the same, which can end up causing the error. In addition, it is important to remember that your tone will always be the one thing that “disappears” on your skin, i.e. the foundation cannot be clearer, or darker than your tone, the ideal case is to look like you’re not wearing anything, your skin is perfect and you are the diva who doesn’t need to put on makeup.
And then girls … Is the above of any help?
I hope I’ve been helpful!
