HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT FOUNDATION SHADE:
With companies offering up to 40 foundation shades these days it may not be a hassle to get the right foundation shade but it can definitely be a hassle to get that shade match your skin.
So here are a few quick tips that you can use to get your foundation look amazing:
MIXING TWO OR MORE SHADES:
This is a golden rule when it comes to foundations which most of us don’t care to follow or don’t know at all. Whenever buying foundations always make sure that you buy the colour which matches your skin. and to get that perfect combination you might need to mix two or sometimes three shades.
KNOW YOUR UNDERTONE:
This is another very important aspect that we fail to take care of. Knowing your right undertone is important when you are choosing the right foundation.
our sin generally has two undertone-either yellow or red.
Depending on this you can always choose foundations that have a yellow undertone and further go for your shade.
MATCHING THE FACE WITH THE NECK:
This is the last but the most important aspect that 90% of the people don’t know.
Yes,your foundation is only perfect when the face matches the neck without having to apply foundation on the neck).
This is because the skin of our neck is actually the skin of the entire body and once the face matches your neck the other things become a cakewalk.
So, the next time you go to buy a foundation or are trying out the foundation steps of your favorite you tuber make sure to keep these things in mind to get that beautiful warm glowing skin.
Happy foundation selecting ❤
