How to choose foundation

Makeup experts recommend picking a foundation colour and formula that properly suits your skin type. When choosing a foundation colour, pick the closest to your natural skin tone. Remember that foundation can also darken your complexion and will make you look like you are wearing a mask. When buying foundation consider choosing one for summer and one for winter, to allow for your summer skin being naturally darker and your winter skin being lighter. During in between months you can mix them. If your skin is oily, matte foundation will do the trick. For dry skin, pick a foundation with a hydrating formula.

Skincare for makeup application

The golden rule for maintaining good skin that is suitable for makeup and cosmetics is to exfoliate, moisturise and cleanse. Exfoliating will help your makeup to go on more smoothly, while cleansing and moisturising will help with makeup absorption. When exfoliating you can use face scrubs, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, beta alpha hydroxy pads or any Vitamin A product like Retin-A.

Makeup tips and tricks

  • Apply foundation within a minute of applying primer or moisturiser.
  • Apply concealer before foundation. Concealer can be used under the eyes, along the nose or on the chin.
  • Make sure that your foundation is blended properly. Always start in the center of your face and blend outward.
  • Try blending mismatched colours to find the perfect colour of foundation and concealer for you.
  • If you want to hide dark under eye circles, apply peach or yellow tone concealers on the inner corner of the eye.
  • Get a sunkissed look by applying a good facial bronzer on the areas where the sun hits such as forehead, cheeks and nose.
  • When applying moisturisers or primers, be sure to choose one with SPF.
