Hello people!! Its been so long! I'm finally done with the semester and I hope to spend a lot more time here!
I will be discussing all things foundation (make up) as there are a lot of issues with this topic. :D
Just in case, Foundation is normally the base of facial makeup (excluding primer and moisturizer ).
1. As the base of our makeup, we MUST and SHOULD endeavor to get and make the best out of it. A lot of ladies don't use the right foundation for their skin color. This can be very embarrassing! Some people choose shades lighter than their natural skin color and others choose shades way darker than their natural skin color. Either way, the idea is not to look like any of these:
Yeah.... We don't want to look like clowns!
So what would be the solution for this? When getting a foundation for the first time (or if you are like any of these ladies), go to the store yourself and get a sample of the foundation tested on you. Make sure this is done under very bright light, in fact when the assistant is done, get up and go outside into the open with a mirror to make sure the shade is perfect! seriously! (Do you want to look great or not?) Now that's the most important thing!
2. Foundation comes in different types. There is liquid, mousse and cream). People have different preference and I use liquid. The liquid either or does not have oil in it. People with sensitive and oily skin should definitely use the oil-free one, in fact oil-free makeup in general because its better for the skin. (Check out Maybelline SuperStay foundation) .
3. A little trick: If you fall into the situation of not having your correct foundation shade, here's something you can do. You can get two different shades one lighter than your skin color and the other one darker. Mix these two together on your palm and voila! You have a shade good enough for you. This is only acceptable in this kind of EMERGENCY (yes, EMERGENCY!) lol.. If this doesn't work for, you then.. umm just stick to using only powder.
3. Another trick to make your makeup application less stressful! Trying mixing your foundation with a tinted moisturizer! It makes it easier and it help to reduce the number of layers of makeup! I encourage everyone to get tinted moisturizer with SPF20 and above. A lot of dark-skinned people don't think its really important to use products with SPF. But trust me it is, you know how when its hot like around summer time, the skin gets darker because of all the sun everywhere, try using SPF and note the difference. your skin will not get as dark, well, depending on the amount of SPF you use!
