How to Choose the Right Foundation?

Finding the right makeup products that suit your skin type or discovering colors that complement your skin tone is not always easy. When looking for a foundation, should you choose a liquid or compact texture? Do you need to use loose powder? Get makeup tips on foundations and how to choose them. Find all the answers to your questions here.

1. Choosing Texture Based on Your Skin Type

This is the first question to ask when looking for a foundation!

Dry Skin

For dry or sensitive skin, opt for a hydrating and skin-friendly foundation. A fluid foundation, whether liquid or creamy, like the Perfect Matte Foundation SB Make-Up, can provide a smooth and moisturizing base. Its creamy texture will even out your complexion, even if you have minor imperfections like diffuse redness on the cheeks.

Oily Skin

Choose a compact foundation for oily skin. It may be thick, but it covers imperfections well, such as acne, and lasts all day, even with excess sebum. The following professional foundations are thick and can be easily stretched, avoiding a too thick layer.

Normal or Combination Skin

This skin type supports both compact and fluid foundations. You're in luck! You can choose the texture you prefer. Remember to set the compact foundation with loose powder.

Mature Skin

Opt for a foundation that smoothens fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes or mouth. We recommend choosing a powder foundation with a fine texture, such as a mineral foundation.

2. Choosing the Right Color for Your Foundation

Regardless of the texture of your foundation, whether it's fluid or compact, choosing the right color is crucial. The foundation color should be identical or nearly identical to your skin color. If your skin tends to be orange, choose an orange-toned foundation. If your skin tends to be rosy, choose a slightly rosy foundation. Match your foundation to your skin tone – light for fair skin and not darker, and vice versa for dark skin. If testing the foundation is challenging, refer to the color chart.

How to Apply Foundation?

Work your foundation before applying it to your skin. Regardless of the texture of your foundation, always place a small amount of foundation on the back of your hand and work it with a sponge or foundation brush. The heat from your hand "softens" the foundation, making it easier to apply, especially if it's a compact foundation. Start by placing a few dots of foundation on the forehead, cheeks, and chin. Then, spread the foundation from the forehead to the bottom of the face, finishing under the chin, passing through the eyelids, around the eyes, and around the mouth. If you've chosen the right color for your foundation, there should be no traces of makeup! Feel free to apply foundation on the eyelids to enhance your makeup. You can use your fingers or a slightly pointed sponge to help shape small areas, such as the inner corner of the eye or the wings of the nose.

Accessories to Choose for Proper Foundation Application

Accessories to facilitate foundation application:

  • The Pro Foundation Brush for ultra-professional application.
  • The round foundation brush helps not to apply too much material on your skin, as you should place the fluid foundation in the small hole intended for this purpose.
  • The bell sponge is a sponge with a small point and curves to facilitate its passage on the skin, in small hollow areas like the wings of the nose or the inner corner of the eye, and rounded areas like the cheeks and chin.
  • The blender sponge is a simplified bell sponge. Its role is to blur the foundation in large areas of the face, such as the forehead or cheeks.
  • The silicone sponge allows you to apply a thicker foundation and, therefore, more coverage because it does not absorb the foundation and deposits the entire amount taken from the skin.
  • The triangular foam sponge is an ultra-professional sponge. Larger than the other sponges, it allows for faster application!

Having a Perfect, Well-Unified, and Natural Complexion: What to Use and How to Apply It?

Some tips for a very natural complexion:

  • Test your foundation before buying it or seek advice from the seller.
  • Apply your foundation to clean skin, to protect your skin and after applying makeup. If using a compact foundation, don't forget the powder.
  • In summer, opt for a slightly golden or sandy foundation for a tan complexion.
  • Never apply too much foundation on your face, as it would mark your skin and harden your facial features.
  • Use a concealer if you have dark circles or spots to conceal.
  • For the evening, if you want a more sophisticated look, use a compact foundation.
