The best make-up, it is said, should not show where your face ends and your neck begins.
Make up mistakes begin right from choosing the colour shades and errors made when applying them on your face.
What should you consider when choosing the best foundation and compact powder?
- The first step to identifying the best make up for your skin is knowing your skin tone, the overtone and undertones. This, you will be able to see by looking at your skin when you are at a place with natural lighting.
- Taking a close look at the veins on your wrist can also help you establish whether you have a warm or cool undertone.
- In order to identify the best foundation for your skin tone, test it on your jawline. There, you will be able to see if the foundation is marching seamlessly with your neck colour. This will show you that the foundation not only matches your face but also your neck.
- After testing the foundation on your jawline, you can look at how it matches your face in different light intensities, more so, in natural lighting.
The same procedures apply to when looking for a compact powder that matches your face.
However, one is allowed to settle for a compact powder that is a shade lighter than their skin.
If you want more natural finish from the compact powder, then opt for one with sheer coverage. On the other hand, a medium or full coverage powder evens out the imperfections and unevenness on your skin.
Even after choosing the best foundation and compact powder for your skin, there are basic don’ts about make-up that you should know.
- Not sleeping with your make-up on.
- Not applying make-up on a dirty face
- Following a trend that does not work for you.
- Smiling when applying blush to the apples of your cheeks
- Applying too much foundation just to seal blemishes.
