Selecting The Right Foundation


There are lots of different foundations that cater to any special needs your skin has. Consider what else you need your makeup to do for you other than even your skin tone before you run out and get it.


  • Hypoallergenic (for sensitive skin)
  • Full coverage
  • Long lasting
  • Waterproof

Makeup Finishes


Just like the special need your skin has, makeup also comes in a variety of different finishes depending on the look you’re going for. Here are some of the different textures of the foundation.


    1. Liquid: The lightest of the three types, it’s best if you want sheer coverage. This is the most widely used daytime makeup. It’s very easy to apply and spread with your fingers and it’s harder to make mistakes since it’s not heavy.


    1. Crème to Powder: This type provides medium coverage. Because this is an ‘all in one’ type of product it’s great if you’re on the go. This type tends to work well for people with oilier skin types and dries to a powdery matte finish.


  1. Crème: These come in stick and compact forms and are the most common type used. They are very easy to apply, give full coverage and a flawless finish but can be a bit heavy if not carefully applied.


The number one rule of how to put on makeup is to always test the color of your foundation in natural light since that gives the best color match result!

What Are The Different Types Of Concealers?


    1. Cream Stick: This is the heaviest so it’s ideal for discolorations and blemishes. It’s the most difficult to blend into the skin so it’s not recommended for areas that are delicate or have fine lines.

    1. Tube: Creamy and easy to blend, it’s lightweight and tends to wear off faster than the stick or pot versions.

Tips On How To Put On Makeup Concealer


Here are some tips on how to apply makeup concealer and choosing the right one for your needs.


    • Don’t try to match your skin color; always go one shade lighter. The point is to lighten the dark marks. Depending on the darkness of the area going a shade or two lighter is best.


    • Choose a concealer based on the type of imperfection you want to cover and the level of coverage you want.


  • Warm the product up on the back of your hand before applying. This makes it easier to spread and prevents it from going on thick and cakey.
