5 Tips To Help You Choose Your Best Foundation

  • Test your foundation color before you buy by applying a small amount of foundation underneath your eyes, on your nose and on your cheek. Apply it only on one side of your face so you can easily compare it to the no-makeup side.

  • If you must choose, go darker, not lighter. Keep in mind your perfect shade should totally blend in with your skin – almost as if you aren’t wearing anything. If you are having problems finding your exact match, opt for a slight shade darker, not lighter. This will help you cover flaws more efficiently and warm your skin tone.

  • Use primer. Yes, it’s an extra step, but adding primer makes your foundation look better, appear more natural and last longer. Some even have vitamins infused to soften the appearance of wrinkles and boost radiance.

  • Use a foundation brush (and stop using your fingers). Other than the fact you’re going to use way less foundation with a brush than your fingers or a sponge, foundation brushes are the best way to blend in your product. When you’re looking for the brush, buy synthetic bristles, not animal hair. Wash your brush every couple of weeks with brush cleaner or a baby shampoo to keep it clean and fresh.

  • Stop putting foundation all over your face. Contrary to popular belief, the purpose of foundation is not to cover every inch of skin. Apply where you need it, like around your nose, under any dark circles or over any blemishes. Then blend away!
