Beauty Wardrobes buying guide
Finding the right foundation can be every girl?s beauty-mare. There?s so much to think about. What is your skin type? Are you oily? Dry? Combination? What type of coverage do you want? Full coverage? A sheer complexion? Natural radiance? To help you here?s a pick of the best to help you achieve a dewy flawless canvas.
Tinted moisturizers are a great option if you don?t need a lot of coverage but do want to even out your skin tone and relieve dry skin. The slight hint of foundation gives just the right amount of colour coverage whilst the moisturising formula nourishes, softens and protects the skin.
Liquid foundation is a popular option as the smooth silk like consistency glides effortlessly onto the skin and easily blends.
Cream foundations come in a compact or stick and are a great handbag must-have if you?re on-the-go. Both options not only act as a foundation but can be used as a concealer and corrector to even out the skin tone.
Cream-to-powder foundations go on as a liquid and then dries to give a powder finish. The lightweight formula gives you versatility to build on, going from light to full coverage without the need for powder.
Concealers are particularly good for problem areas such as under the eyes and to hide pimples and spots. For best results apply before foundation.
