How to Properly Test Foundation Shade

Face FoundationWearing Foundation is really a personal choice. The most important rule is to properly test foundation shade to match your skin tone.



You should really wear foundation if there is something on your skin that you’d like to cover up, like age spots or discoloration.  Be sure to properly test your foundation shade against your skin tone for maximum effect.

Cover-up products like foundation or powder are useful for evening out skin tone, covering dark spots, and hiding blemishes. When you use the right formula for your skin, it can create a virtually flawless complexion. The general rule for wearing foundation or powder: don’t use more than you need.

When it comes to what type to use, you’ve got a few options:


Liquid Foundation:  Liquid foundation comes in a variety of different consistencies ranging from lightweight to heavy, depending on how much coverage you need. If you’ve got a lot of deep-set lines and wrinkles use a primer before the liquid foundation to prevent it from setting into the folds and making wrinkles look worse.

Mineral Foundation: This type of foundation usually comes as a loose powder, which works best if you apply it using a short, dense makeup brush.  This is great because it gives you a more natural finish.

Pressed Powder: Pressed powder sort of falls between liquid and mineral foundation. It’s still a powder, but it goes on a bit heavier than loose powder. That also means it provides more coverage.

Cake Foundation: This is a very heavy type of foundation for complete coverage. It goes on thick and almost creates a layer on top of the skin’s surface, like a mask. Not recommended for everyday wear—the heavy texture clogs pores, makes it hard for skin to breathe, and it doesn’t look natural.
