Hey guys! Welcome back. Today I wanted to do something a little different. I talk a lot about makeup and what products I love and don’t love. But I have never written a post about how to choose the right products for you. Just because something works for me or doesn’t work for me, doesn’t mean it will be the same for you. So there are a few ways that you can find the right products for you. I decided to start with the base because foundation is typically one of the trickiest makeup products to choose for yourself. I know I made some mistakes when starting out.
The first thing to keep in mind is that when trying new makeup, you are always taking a gamble. There is no guarantee that any product will work for you. Just because it says it’s hydrating, doesn’t mean it will work with your dry skin. Just because it says matte doesn’t mean only people with oily skin can wear it. It’s a risk you have to take. Some things won’t work, but you will be surprised how many might. With that said, here are the best ways to find your perfect foundation.
1. Know your skin type. Knowing your skin type can help you know what kinds of foundations to reach for more than others. For instance, I have dry skin, so I typically stay away from mattifying foundation. Those foundations tend to dry out my skin and break me out.
2. Know what you want in a foundation. Some foundations wear longer than others. Some are full coverage, some are medium coverage. Knowing what you want in a foundation can help in choosing which one you want. Read reviews online and determine if a foundation will reach your requirements.
3. Choose your shade. Some foundations won’t have a shade to match you. If you really want to try it, you can go with a shade close to yours or mix shades, but if you don’t want to spend money on a foundation that doesn’t carry your shade, move on to the next one. There is a shade out there for everyone.
4. Know what formula you like the most. With foundations come many different formulas. You have liquid, powder, stick, and possibly more. There are so many different kinds of foundations, so knowing what kind of foundation looks best on your skin and is easiest for you to work with will help you immensely.
These are just the basic ways to pick the perfect foundation. Obviously, do your research and figure out what you like the best. And remember, it’s okay if something doesn’t work for you. Just move on. What are some of your tips to finding your perfect foundation? Let us know in the comments! Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this. Please like it if you did.
