Foundation shades to suit all skins

The way you apply foundation shades also matters a lot for giving desired effect on your skin. When you apply it more naturally, it gets easily blended with your skin tone. This is one reason why most women can apply more than one foundation shades. If you are a person with dry skin, liquid or crème foundation which moisturizes your skin is the best. A person with oily skin should choose liquid or powder foundation which is oil-free or oil-controller. If you have combination skin, then the best thing to do is to check whether it is more dry or oily and then choose the apt one. You need not worry about the type of foundation you use as long as you have normal skin.

Once you have choosen the ideal formulation for you, your are ready to choose the perfect foundation shade to match your skin.

Ensure you are in natural daylight when trying out foundation colours, so you can see exactly how your ksin will look once you leave the shop.

Foundation Shades Chart

Select a couple of shades to try, whichh look as though they will match your skin.

Do not try foundation on your hand or on your wrist - they are a different colour than your face.

Stroke a little colour onto your jawline to ensure you get a tone that will blend with your neck as well as your face. The shade that seems to disappear into your skin is the right one for you.

Tips to remember while choosing foundation shades:

Once you are done with your ideal formulation, you can choose foundation shade suitable for you. But, it is advisable to choose colors in broad daylight as you can know exactly how it works on your skin. Start with a couple of shades as trial and then decide on one which is really matching your skin. Don't try foundation on your hand or wrist as the color of your face varies from them. Just applying a tinge of the shade on your jaw line will help you know how it matches your neck as well as your face. The shade that blends naturally to your skin will be the best choice.

Is it necessary to have different foundation shades?

In most cases, it is necessary to mix a few shades to get the desired result. This is true even with makeup artists. As we know, hormonal changes, sun tan, aging can bring a lot of changes to your skin on regular basis. So foundation shades which suited you earlier may turn out to be the wrong choice today. So, even in such situations, a combination of shades really does wonders. It is always good to choose shades that suit your skin tone naturally. Mixing shades is just like mixing cool and warm together as it creates a balance in skin tone.
