The right foundation is key to your overall look. If your foundation is the wrong shade or looks blotchy, it can drastically change your image. To find a foundation that looks natural, you’ll want to check out these four tips.
TEST FOUNDATION ON YOUR JAW LINE
Many women rub a little foundation on their hand or arm to test the color, but this isn’t the best way to find the right shade. The best place to test the foundation is on your jawline.
CHECK YOUR LOOK IN NATURAL LIGHT
You should have natural light while testing out new makeup. Just take a mirror over to a window to get a glimpse of the new look. If you don’t have access to a window, be sure to test your makeup out once you’re home. If you don’t like it, return it. You’ll want to check on the return policy before you buy it.
DIFFERENT SEASON, DIFFERENT FOUNDATION
One shade does not fit all. Your complexion changes with the seasons. You don’t want to use the same foundation in winter and summer. In winter, your skin is sun deprived and pale. During summer, you’re bound to get a little tan. All the more reason you’ll need two different shades of foundation.
