Best Make Up Foundation Routine, Tricks, Tips & More:

When it comes to foundation, the most important thing you need to remember is this: It NEEDS to match your skin tone. And not just your skin tone, but your UNDERTONE as well. 

This is so wildly important! 

Skin tone: The color of your skin. 

Undertone: The skin's undertone is the warm, cool, or neutral hue that shows through the surface color of skin.  Although the surface color of skin changes depending on sun exposure and other skin conditions like rosacea and acne, the skin’s undertone remains consistent.  

Okay, not sure what your undertone is?? Keep in mind that you can cheat by looking at the color of your veins on the inside of your wrist. If your veins appear blue/purple, then you fall into the cool-toned group (bluish). If your veins appear green, you are more warm-toned (yellow). Those with neutral undertones will have difficulty discerning the blue/green in their veins. 

Getting bored? 

Okay, okay, enough of that mumbo-gumbo, let's have some fun! 



Tips & Tricks: 

  • Use a brush or sponge to apply and blend in your makeup! You're not finger painting, STOP using your fingers to apply your foundation or concealer
  • Check how well you've matched your foundation in several different lighting's. Maybe you look flawless in that makeup department store, but do you look cake-y in natural lightening or when you snap a selfie? Check, then double, then ask a friend!  
  • Find what type of foundation works best for you by trying it a couple different types - like try a powder one day and then a liquid form the next. 


Okay, so, your skin is completely flawless...Time to add one or more of the following: 

  • Blush 
  • Concealer 
  • Contouring
