YOU’RE PROBABLY USING THE WRONG FOUNDATION


If there’s one sound piece of advice we can give you, it’s to always make sure your foundation is on point. There’s no step more important in your makeup routine than laying down your groundwork correctly! Get the shade wrong, and it throws your whole look off! Choose the wrong formula for your skin tone, and you could be greasy in minutes or flaking up a storm. We want you to steer clear of all of these roads

1.your foundation to your body, not necessarily your face and neck. “Chances are, one's face and body are not the same color — this is due to sunscreen, lifestyle and tone. “People often think they should match their foundation to their face or neck, which, in my opinion, causes a "floating head“ effect, where body and face look like two different entities. Matching to the left side of the jawline is a great place to test.


2.Another important component to consider is choosing the correct finish for your skin type. For those with dry skin, suggests steering clear of powder formulas as they can highlight “textured” skin and create a less-than-youthful appearance. And those with oily skin should be weary of foundations with a “dewy finish,” since oily skin will make the foundation appear too shiny. Unless glowing is the desired look, stick to matte or semi-matte foundations and powders.
