How To Choose The Right makeup Foundation and How to Apply it

Choosing the right foundation for your skin can seem like a difficult task. Applying your foundation and then wondering if you haven’t overdone yourself seem to be pretty daunting and tiring. Don’t worry a professional course isn’t needed. All you need is an amazing foundation and just a few tips to an unidentifiable layer of perfection.

Shopping in a departmental store, can get you confused with all those different types of foundation products, almost feels like you have to test all those goods to find your true match, resulting in a lot of time consumption.

You as a consumer need to know your skin type and then according to that choose your Formula base. Oily skin types need to see under the section of, ‘’oil-free’’ or ‘’oil control’’ printed on the container. Or for dry skin go for “hydrating” or “moisture-rich” written on the bottle. Whereas Cream/Powder formulation bases work best for combination skin types.

Good skin? Then no need to go for heavy cover-ups, just need to cover up some rough or dark patches underneath the lips or eyes then go for light coverage. For ladies with visible and uneven skin tones try medium coverage. (Mineral foundations are a big hit with women needing heavy coverage)

Select the color tone which u think goes best with your skin type. Apply four different skin colors on your cheek and select the one which disappears. That will be your true match. After the application, stand outside to see which one looks best under natural light. It must blend in so healthily, still invisible to others.


Testing makeup products before buying is essential, it will give you the correct picture when applied. When testing a product, you need to know the key areas to applying your foundation to make sure you get an even layer. (Especially when dark areas are visible on face, E.G Chin, under eyes)

  1. Revlon’s Colorstay works wonders for my oily skin. It has a medium to buildable coverage that covers up pretty much everything. The god of foundations to me!
