Finding your perfect foundation is a task more daunting than doing your taxes, but it doesn’t have to be! Follow these steps to funding a foundation that will give you a flawless finish!
Determine your undertone
There is cool, neutral and warm. If the veins on your wrist are blue, you’re cool. If they are green, you’re warm. If they are blue and green, you’re neutral. Still not sure? If silver jewelry compliments you best, you’re cool. If it’s gold, you’re warm.
Let your neck be your guide
With all the exfoliating, acids and brightening treatments on the market now, your face is more than likely lighter than the rest of your body. If you match your foundation to your face and get your picture taken, it is going to look like your head doesn’t belong on your body. If you match it to your neck, you get a seamless transition.
Determine your skin type
Now that you know what color to be looking for, formulation is just as important. If you wear a mattifying formula with a drier skin type, you may just be enhancing the dryness. Same with dewy on oily skin.
Everyone is always satisfied surrounded by the lights of the department store. Ask for a mirror and go outside, the natural lighting is going to be your best judge. If it still looks great out in the sunlight, then you have found the winner.
