Expert Tips On How To Choose The Right Foundation

Picking up the correct shade as well as type of foundation is a must for every bride to flaunt a flawless face on her wedding day. However, it is quite a tricky thing for most women to find the right foundarion for themselves. In fact, not many brides know the right tricks to choose an “ideal” foundation.

Well, if you also face tough time while selecting the right foundation for yourself, then it is time to shed all your worries. Here are a few fantastic tips to figure out a perfect foundation shade as well as type, so that you never go wrong again!

Choosing foundation according to skin type

Oily Skin

As your skin already secretes enough oil, try avoiding oil-based foundations. Such foundations can cause bleeding of makeup and make your face look patchy. Instead, you can go for oil-free or matte formulations for a flawless finish of makeup. Also, you should remember to set the base with a matching or transparent compact powder to look gorgeous all day long.

Dry Skin

This type of skin is always in the need of extra moisture. Therefore, it is advisable to go for the ones enriched with moisturisers. Such foundations will help you to cover all the flaws of your face while adding the much-needed moisture at the same time. In case you want light coverage, a tinted moisturiser is the best bet for you. On the other hand, go for oil-based or creamy foundations if you require heavy coverage.
