Foundation – one of the biggest staples that every girl needs in her makeup bag. If you’re anything like me, who can barely manage to put on mascara without getting it all over her face, you probably have some troubles using foundation. Until very recently, I didn’t even know how to use it properly, and I’m still slowly but surely learning the tricks of the trade when it comes to something as vital as foundation. But the first thing that every girl needs to know is that there are hundreds of different types of foundations, and not all foundations are going to be right for your skin.
Every foundation has it’s own perks and downfalls to it, doing different things to skin on some than it does to skin of others – so it’s very important for every girl to find the perfect foundation that matches her skin type and skin tone.
First thing’s first, you have to do a bit of studying on your own skin. Is your skin generally really dry most of the time? Does it feel greasy a lot and uncomfortable with all of the grease that’s just sitting on your face throughout the day? Do you have a lot of acne or blemishes that you want to hide? These are all questions that you really need to ask yourself before you decide which foundation is best for you, as different ones are designed specifically for certain types of skin.
It’s also worth mentioning that if you have a lot of skin problems, you’re going to want to be very careful when it comes to choosing a foundation. If you’re prone to breaking out after having things on your face, it might be best to get something that has good ratings when it comes to a dermatologist. These generally have been tested for many different allergies, used with much higher quality ingredients in them, and will be less likely to end in your face breaking out over it. These will probably be on the pricier side, but if it works and it works well without any problems, a good quality foundation is definitely worth it.
There are BB creams that are the best for people who either don’t have a ton of time in the morning to get ready or just don’t like having added steps to deal with, as this is a moisturized and a foundation in one! This particular type also has other benefits built into it, like antioxidants and even built in sunscreen for those days where you just can’t avoid the sun! No need to be putting on suntan lotion on top of your perfect foundation and getting messed up, and you don’t have to sacrifice burnt skin to look fabulous either!
Once you’ve figured out the logistics of your skin, then it’s time to find the perfect color to match your already existing skin tone. To be honest, this can be a huge pain in the butt to girls who are impatient or don’t want to take the time to try on a bunch of different shades, but the wrong shade of foundation will make your entire face just look weird and wrong. It’s important to take the time and actually go into the store at least the first time to pick out foundation, and only switch to ordering it online when you absolutely know that the shade and type of foundation works well for your skin.
A lot of women like to opt for a foundation that is super light and almost feels like you’re not even wearing it, but it’s hard to find. Many of these types are very expensive, and although they’re coming up with cheaper versions of a lighter, cleaner foundation that will cost a lot less money, the best ones for that particular type are definitely on the pricier side.
