How to Find the Perfect Foundation in 2 Simple Steps
The ultimate makeup mistake of all times has to be wearing the wrong foundation for your skin. No matter how much effort you put into that makeup look, if your foundation is too cakey, or isn’t the right shade for your skin tone, it’s all ruined. Foundation is supposed to look natural on you, just like a second — but flawless — skin.

It’s all about creating the illusion of healthy, glowing skin with consistent coloring from your face to your decollete. But picking the right foundation can be overwhelming and tricky. How does one differ from the next? Here’s a good place to start to find the perfect foundation.

How to Find the Perfect Foundation in 2 Simple Steps

Step 1 – Discover your skin type

The first step in finding the perfect foundation for your skin, is actually knowing your skin. Skins can be classified into 3 different types, so examine your skin carefully:

● If you have dry skin, go for a cream or liquid foundation. It will give you that moisturizing sensation your skin is missing
● For oily skin, any powder foundation will give you that mattifying effect to avoid looking greasy
● If you have combination skin: use cream or liquid foundation and then mattify with setting powder the areas where you tend to get oily, such as your T-Zone
Step 2 – Pick the right shade

In order to achieve that flawless natural look, you need to find the right shade of foundation that matches your skin perfectly. For this reason, take a close look at your skin. Are your undertones warm, cool or neutral?

If you have warm undertones, your skin is slightly peachy, yellow, or golden and you tan easily. If you have cool undertones, your skin will lean pink, red, or blue and burn easily. And if you have neutral undertones, your skin will have some mixture of these colors.

● For fair skin with cool undertones, pick a yellow based foundation to cancel out some of your redness
● If your skin has warm undertones, you may want to opt for a pink-based foundation to neutralize these
● When in doubt, ocher-based foundations tend to be match most skin tones

Before purchasing, make sure to test the shade properly first. But please, do it on the right spot! Swatch shades along your jawline to take into account the color of your neck, which is often paler than your face. Take a good look in natural light. The right shade should disappear into your skin.

And be sure to spend a decent amount of money on your foundation — it’s one of the cosmetics worth splurging on to avoid breakouts and look your best.
