Letโ€™s talk about foundation.

Thisโ€™s some basic information to help you get started wearing it in a way that feels comfortable and right for you.

Foundation isnโ€™t a terribly complicated makeup product to wear so youโ€™re in luck.

Before long, your skin will look flawless thanks to your new makeup skills.

1. Decide Which Formula is Right for You

Foundation comes in a variety of forms.

The most popular are liquid, cream and powder.

Liquid is probably the easiest to work with and can work for every skin type.

Cream is often chosen for dry skin and powder is versatile but works really well for oily or acne prone skin.

Decide what foundation you feel most comfortable working with.

2. Consider Your Specific Skin Care Needs

Before you shop for foundation you need to consider your specific skin care needs.

Is your skin oily or dry?

Do you have sensitive skin?

Is acne an issue for you?

All of those are questions to think over before you choose a foundation so youโ€™re sure your selection will address your skin care needs.

3. Decide How Much Coverage You Want

Different foundations offer different coverage.

Itโ€™s important to decide if you want light, medium or full coverage.

If you have even skin with few blemishes then you may feel comfortable in light coverage.

If you have more blemishes or uneven skin tone may want a fuller coverage.

I typically choose a foundation with medium coverage.

4. Choose a Shade

Thisโ€™s probably the most difficult part.

Testing a foundation on your neck is going to give you the best results other than on your actual bare face.

Be sure to look at it in natural light as well as interior light.2

If you end up with a foundation that you donโ€™t feel is right for you then return it.

Most stores will allow you to return makeup, even if youโ€™ve tried it.
