Get Your Foundation Shades On Point!
Makeup shopping isn’t as easy as it looks, especially when you’re still discovering and learning about your own skin, complexion, what works for you and what doesn’t. This has happened with all of us when undecidedness and indecisiveness has kicked in and made us buy foundations that either make us look as bright as a halogen light or darker than what our actual complexion is. If at all you have faced these issues with foundation, cut yourself some slack because everyone makes mistakes!
We at glamrs are on a mission to solve this issue and trust us, there’s no rocket science to getting your shade right! Before you set out to buy your foundation, do some homework on what your skin type is and what you want to achieve. Check out our video on how to buy the perfect foundation according to your skin type to understand what exactly will you need. When you know your skin type, half your job is done as the foundation that you will buy will compliment your skin texturally.
At most drugstores, foundations are tested on the wrist. Remember that the skin on your wrist is lighter than the skin on your face, so specifically ask to test the foundation on your jawline as instructed in the video. Compare the foundations and blend lightly and see which one disappears into your skin seamlessly. If you feel you haven’t found the perfect shade, mix two foundations closest to your skin tone.
You can also try mixing a foundation with a tinted moisturiser to achieve your desired shade. Remember, beauty blenders are your bffs when it comes to blending and making the foundation literally look your actual skin! Sheer coverage foundations look extremely natural and finding the same in your skin tone is relatively easier!
Hope these tips help you get your perfect shade! :)
