What is your skin type like? Are you oily, combination skin or normal? Depending on what your skin
type is and what kinds of needs you are looking for depends on the formula to look for. Usually when shopping online for
foundations, you can click the description of the product and it can tell you who the foundation is best for. When you go
shopping and a sales person will say something like "Who it's for: Normal to oily skin." which is super
helpful when seeing if a formula works for you. You can also look for shade ranges that offer added skincare benefits or
mention how it is formulated to wear on the skin. When shopping for foundations look for a range that offers not only a
wide color range but also undertones - like warm, neutral or cool.
An undertone and skin tone are two different things to remember when shopping for a foundation.
Under the skin is your undertone, an easy way to remember. During the seasons, especially summer or winter when you may
be more tan or fair, your skin tone can change. But, your undertone never does. Cool undertones contain more blue. Neutral
undertones are versatile and can wear neutral, warm or cool foundations and are between yellow and blue. Warm undertones
are a little more on the yellow side.
do you know if you have cool, neutral or warm undertones? Check your veins. If you have purple or blue veins, you're cool.
Blue or green, then you're neutral. And green or olive veins, when you have a warm undertone. Now that you've got your undertone
figured out, lets tackle the skin tone.
Makeup Advice For Mature Skin.
very nature of powder is that coats and matte's your face. If you're oily, this can be great, but oil production slows as
we age. As we get older, powder starts looking dry, ashy, and dusty on our skin, which visually ages us. What we really want
is a youthful glow. Instead of powder, use a setting spray to keep makeup in place. Add an extra layer of moisturizer to
dry or dehydrated areas before applying any makeup. Many finer lines can be reduced or eliminated with extra hydration.
Additionally, use liquid foundation with light-reflecting particles, and cream blushes and bronzers. I would recommend going
to your local MAC store and making a appointment with a professional on which type of foundation to use for your skin range.
Cleansing the face is very important and when there are
creases in the skin make sure to double wash the face. Mascara has a tendency to really hold to the creases of the under
eye's. Use a toner if your skin is oily, and also a moisturizer if the skin is dry. I would also recommend a equalizer for
the skin before the application of your makeup. This will provide you back up for a smooth appearance, and will even out
the porosity of the skin. The object is to even the porosity and have a clean palette to work with for the best application
for your client. And again be careful of using dry powders.
