Foundation – Make-up Special
Foundation is an essential component in creating the perfect base for your client (or yourself!).
According to Make-up Experts, there are three important tests that you need to complete to find that perfect foundation.
- The correct shade
- The correct texture
- Make sure you apply it properly when testing – and in sufficient light.
Paul Herrington, head of artistry for Bobbi
Brown UK & Ireland, says: ‘When choosing foundation, one of the most important rules is that the shade blends exactly into the natural colour of your skin (never use a foundation to add colour). When the foundation is a good match, it will last longer as you’ll need to use it only in areas to even out the skin tone.’
Light diffusing mineral make-up foundation helps to reduce the visibility of lines and wrinkles.
You can also purchase foundation with anti-oxidising properties and with SPF factors that help to protect your skin.
It is important to select a foundation that matches your natural skin tone, this way it does not look peculiar, nor does it appear blotchy.
Helena Rubenstein says: ‘Adjust your makeup to the light in which your wear it.’
