Pick the Right Foundation Makeup

Wednesday, September 10, 2008

Wondering how to find foundation that fits your skin tone exactly? Finding that matching paper labels doesn't help?

Go to a large store like a department store, large drugstore or beauty supply which carries multiple lines of cosmetics. Online is a bad choice to buy make-up unless you are re-ordering!
If a beauty technician is available, ask for help or at least ask for an idea to point you in the right direction.
Don't try to get too much out of one cosmetic. One foundation can't take off ten years, even out skin tone, even out skin texture, be shine-free, oil free and be 24 hour wear at the same time. Instead pick one or two needs you know you must have in a foundation.
Determine the undertone of your skin. Is it pink, yellow, peach, brown etc.
Look for a foundation with the same undertone.
Choose your shade by matching the color to your jawline. Since it's between your face and neck (the two places that the foundation should match), it's your best bet. If the shades of your face & neck are slightly different, attempt to find one that's in between.

Look for store samples you can try on your skin before you buy the product.
Ask the beauty technician if she can apply your foundation for you after you have purchased it so that you can pick up tips from her experience.
Don't wear foundation when you go out to buy foundation-it will be much too confusing to determine your natural coloring.
Buy a new foundation for every season. Your skin changes shade and texture from winter to summer.

Throw out foundation after 6-8 months. After this amount of time not only with the make-up develop bacteria, but it will lose pigment, separate and become less smooth in texture.

How to Achieve a Flawless You

Have you had one of those days where you feel fat and ugly? This will teach you how to achieve a great looking and feeling you.

For your face: Don't wear a lot of make-up; maybe only 3 or 4 products will do.
Clean your face with a scrub every morning and night, then moisturize.
Teeth: Brush your teeth for at least one minute. Make sure you're brushing your teeth in a good motion. Use toothbrushes that have rubber scrubs and stuff like that. Make sure you're also using something to treat your tongue, because that's where all your bad breath germs are. You can use a toothbrush that comes with it, a tongue scraper, or your normal toothbrush. You can also use a whitening wash or white strips. It'll make your mouth feel fresh.
Body: Make sure you keep your healthy diet in balance. Junk food is okay every once in a while. But also make sure you play outside enough and get exercise.
Wear clothes that match your mood and your body type. Use your passion for fashion!
Take care of your hands and feet: Nail polish is a great way to make your normal hands stand out. You can use colors that match you or colors that you like. You can go for Rihanna's bright colorful style, or soft colors. A favorite type of manicure is the French manicure.
Attitude: Make sure you try to have fun in whatever you do. Don't be over optimistic, but don't be negative either. Make sure you stay bright most of the time. Remember, you only have one life. Finding what you do best might take a while. So, enter after-school activities, clubs, or just do what you love doing.

Do anything that matches and flatters you.
Treat other people with kindness and you'll make friends easily.

Make sure you never act "show-offs" as this can give the wrong impression to other people.
