Foundation for beginners

A well-moisturized skin, which is one of the steps before applying foundation to our skin, allows all cosmetic products you apply on top to better integrate with your skin. In this step, it is very important to master your skin type. For example, if you have acne-prone skin, you should opt for oil-free moisturizing creams. Normal and dry skin, you can use products with high humidification properties that ensure the fat balance of the skin.

In make-up applications, you should pay attention to lighting so that you can see the result more clearly. Daylight shows the most accurate result of products on the skin. If you use white light mirrors instead of fluorescent or yellow lights, you can provide the closest view to daylight.

Being blonde, brunette or brunette doesn't affect your skin tone. If you choose products suitable for skin underneactment in products such as foundation, concealer, contour, you will get a natural and healthy result. If the veins on your wrist look blue-purple, if they look cold, blue-green, if they look neutral, if they look green-yellow, then you have a warm unders tone.

The most misleading point we go cosmetic shopping is to try the product colors on the wrist, by hand. Especially if you use a product that adapts to your skin type when choosing foundation, you will get a natural result. To do this, try the foundation colors on your chin line and observe the change of color for a while. If you ask the store for a trial product and use it for a few days, you can find the color closest to you.

Foundations are divided into matte and wet finishes. Take care to choose a product from foundation according to your expectations. Wet-finish foundations offer little concealment and make the skin look radiant. Matte finishes, on the other hand, are effective in hiding imperfections on the face with its intense concealment.

Make-up sponges may not be suitable for those who want intense concealer as they will absorb part of the product you apply. If you want a natural, everyday look, you can use a sponge. But do not neglect your sponge cleaning after each application. If you want to use a brush, kabuki brushes give the most successful result in feeding foundation to your face.

Foundation doesn't cover all the imperfections on your face. You can hide your defects such as under-eye bruises and skin rashes with the help of concealer. Beware: if you apply too much concealer on top of a foundation with dense concealer feature, a "layer by layer" image is formed and moves away from naturalness. In addition, fixing your concealer and foundation with transparent powder ensures that your make-up remains intact for longer hours.
