A quality foundation can enhance your natural skin tone and conceal any flaws or blemishes that you want to camouflage. To achieve a "flawless look" and get the best results don't be afraid to experiment with different shades to find the most complementary. Before applying or purchasing a new foundation follow these steps to achieve an improved and more youthful appearance.
Cleanse and moisturise your face morning and night - even when you are too tired to care because the best canvas to work with is one that has been looked after.
Test foundations along your jawline or on the back of your hand to select a suitable match. Depending on your skin tone, and especially if it is olive, sometimes it's advisable to go one hue darker.
Blend, blend, blend - whether you are using your fingertips, a sponge or brush. Start from the centre and work your way out. Don't forget to put foundation on your lips and eyelids as this will also seal other makeup that you apply to these areas.
Mix a small amount of moisturiser with your foundation if you think it's too thick for a smooth coverage.
