Makeup is the best solution for all those who want a flawless skin when they step out. Not everyone is blessed with a healthy flawless skin that they can flaunt at all times, without any products on it. Applying makeup is not a simple task. One needs time and practice to get the techniques right. The products used should also be right as this plays a major role in the final look you are aiming for. Here are a few tips on selecting the right products for your skin type:
The foundation you choose will depend upon your skin type and color. There are different shades of foundation these days to suit different skin tones. First you need to find out the undertone of your skin. This can be found by looking at the veins that runs to your wrists. If the veins are blue or purple in shade, you have a cool undertone. On the other hand if they are greenish or yellowish in color, you have warm undertones. If it is a mix of it all, then you need to select a neutral shade.
Next you need to factor in the type of skin. Is you’re a sensitive skin? Then you need to opt for the best foundation for sensitive skin because one cannot risk getting some allergic reaction. Then no amount of foundation can reverse the damage in few minutes. This will leave you with a skin worse than what you were trying to cover up.
When you have found the shades, narrow down your search to two shades – one lighter and one darker than your skin. Now apply both alternatively on your face. Apply the lighter shade in a triangular shape on the center of your face. This shade will be suit your skin if it blends well with your skin. If it is too light, it will appear chalky. Next take the darker shade and blend it on the sides of your face. Apply it fro m the sides of your cheek to your neck. Many ignore the neck are but this is also a part that is exposed and hence should be covered up properly. If this blends well with the lighter shade and your face, then it is the right shade.
