Figuring out on how to choose a foundation can be quite overwhelming for a few people. But if one has to do proper makeup then they have to choose it right.
Wet n Wild photo focus foundation do have various shades but before buying them, one has to figure out how to choose the right shade and the perfect foundation for themselves. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
Know your undertone
One musty have heard other people describing their skin tone and the foundation shade as ‘warm, ‘cool’ or ‘neutral’. This is the most important factor which is needed to find the right foundation shade which matches one the best. Undertones are those colours which actually come through and add the overall hue to the skin. Undertones do not have anything to do with the skin colour as skin colour can keep changing because of a tan but one can never change their undertone. People who have warm undertones can have an overall yellow, peachy glow while those who have cool undertone can get hints of reds, pink and blue. If one has a neutral undertone, then it remains the same. One has to check the colour of their veins to holding a white sheet of paper next to the face to determine that and they go for buying a foundation.

Know Your Skin Type
Knowing one’s skin type is also very much essential to find the right product in case of foundation. The major skin types are dry, oily, normal and combination. One has to use a foundation which is meant for their skin type. The best foundation for the oily skin is the one which is mattifying and that which controls excess oil. In case of dry skin, one has to pick up something that adds hydration to the skin and at the same time does not look greasy. In case of a combination skin satin-matte combinations work the best because it does not add to much shine to the face, nor it turns cringy.
Know The Level of Coverage You Desire
It is another important thing to know. One has to know to choose the right foundation based on its coverage. It can vary from light, medium to full. If one is looking to even out the skin tone without fully covering up, then one can easily go for a sheer light coverage. They look almost natural to the skin. It just covers up the blemishes and spots apart from hyperpigmentation because in that case one needs a full coverage. A medium coverage lies somewhere in between the light and full coverage.
Swatch Foundation The Right Way
One has to apply the foundation evenly to the face and neck both. If the neck colour does not match with the face, then it can look quite unnatural. The best way to avoid any kind of stark line is to swatch the foundation through the jaw line.
