The Right Makeup Foundation For Your Skin color

I believe that there is not a single woman in the world who doesn’t understand the value of a clear and healthy skin.  To be able to step out into the world everyday without having to worry about makeup and covering facial flaws would just be liberating, to say the least. Women born with perfectly smooth, clear, almost like photoshopped skin are always the envy of other women.  However, that is a gift that only very few women are blessed with and,

sadly, not the reality that the rest of us is probably ever gonna wake up to. For most of us, we have no other choice but to get by with a little help from our friends” cosmetics (particularly, makeup foundation)!

before you go selecting your shade, make sure you read this tip: Makeup Foundation artist Orlando Santiago says many Latinas make the mistake of choosing a foundation based on how light or dark they are, when we should be looking at our undertones. We are either neutral, cool, or warm. Click through to see what foundation works best for you!

Make up colors change with fashion styles and seasons. The latest new color may or may not be right for you, so how do you take the gamble out of buying make up? You can get a professional makeover to help you choose the colors that are best for your skin tone, or you can learn to choose the best colors.

When shopping for a foundation, look for the word non-comodenogenic (the fancy term that means it doesn't clog your pores). makeup tips The product's claim should also be that it goes on evenly, or better yet, that it makes your skin glow.

Test the base on the back of your hand. If it blends into your skin without a visible line or dramatic tone difference, this could be the one.

Blend, blend, blend. Foundation isn't a mask. Your true skin should shine through. Concealer should be one shade lighter then your base. Make sure that you dot under the eyes (use your pinky!) and dot over any blotchiness, blemishes or redness, and then blend some more. (Did I say blend?)

Final words: Don't hide behind a mask of makeup as I once did. It took me years(!) to learn not to use heavy powder, especially under the eyes because it screams to the world
