Hello, my darlings. Today I want to talk to you about how to choose the right foundation for your skin tone. And the first thing you need to know is your skin type. And there are four skin types: dry skin, oily skin, normal skin, and combination skin.
Oily skin– If you have oily skin, use powder foundation or an oil-free liquid one. These contain powders that absorb oil, leaving you with a smooth, matte finish. Mineral foundation can also work well with oily skin.
Dry skin– If you’re someone with dry skin, choose a hydrating powder foundation, a liquid or a stick one. These have a creamy consistency which delivers moisture to the skin and offer great coverage.
Combination skin– If your skin is oily in some place, and dry in others – you’re stuck in the worst of both worlds. Than you should strategically mixing and matching formulas and avoid foundations that are formulated to be emollient or oil-rich.
Sensitive skin– If you struggle with acne-prone and sensitive skin it’s best to avoid certain ingredients that can irritate your skin like alcohol and fragrance. Also, mineral oil and talc is a big no-no.
And last but not least is how to choose the right foundation for your skin tone. And first of all, you need to know your skin undertones. One of the ways to figure out your undertone is to look at the color of your veins. If they appear bluer or purple color, you have the cold undertone. But if veins appear more greenish, you have a warm undertone. You can also figure out your undertone by looking at your bare skin, think about how golden (yellow toned) or rosy (pink-toned) it appears. If you’re golden, you have a warm undertone, and if you lean towards the rosy side, you’re probably cool-toned. If it’s a combination of the two, you have a neutral undertone. And once you know your undertone and your skin type, you will have no problem choosing the perfect foundation for your skin.
