3 Hacks For Finding The Right Foundation - Guest Post

Finding the right foundation for your skin type can be one of the most challenging and frustrating things about makeup. Not only do you have to find a makeup base to match your skin tone, but you also have to find a formula that suits your skin condition. Moreover, with so many options available, it’s almost impossible to know where to start. Finding the perfect match can give your skin a flawless look, makes you look better in pictures, and even helps to make your makeup last longer. This year, make a beauty resolution to find a foundation that makes you look your best. Here are a few hacks for finding the best foundation for your skin.

Swatch several shades at the same time

To find the right foundation for your skin, try swatching at least 3 shades of foundation on your face at the same time. To do this, simply swatch them on your jawline. The shade that seems to disappear into your skin is your perfect match. But don’t stop there. Wipe off the swatches, then smooth the best match all over your face and neck. Head outside and check your foundation in natural lighting. See if it truly matches your complexion and observe if the formula cakes or pills on your skin. If your makeup base looks as good as it does inside the department store or drugstore, then you’ve found yourself a winner.

Pick a formula for your skin type

Matching your foundation to your skin tone is not enough—you need to pick a formula that works for your skin type too. If you have oily skin, a formula with a matte finish or a powder foundation may be best for your skin as it can eliminate shine and makes you look fresh. Dry or combination skin will benefit from a moisturizing foundation as it can make skin look radiant and younger.

Choose a foundation that fits your lifestyle

The last thing that you have to consider when choosing a foundation is your lifestyle. Do you usually spend a lot of time doing your makeup and prefer a more polished look a la Kim Kardashian? Then a professional grade liquid foundation may be your best bet. If you’re low maintenance and often go for a natural look, a tinted moisturizer, BB cream, or CC cream may be the perfect base for you. If you’re always on the go and don’t mind doing multiple touch-ups, a cushion compact can help you achieve that glowing and flawless look throughout the day.

Finding the perfect makeup base can take some time, so try a few brands from department stores, drugstores, and you may also want to give organic foundation a whirl to see what’s best for your skin. Try these hacks for finding the right foundation and look your best in 2018.
