Choosing Foundation For a Perfect Appearance

Choose the right shade for your foundation if you wish to establish that flawless skin appearance!  Are you fair, medium light, or darker-skinned?  Be careful because artificial lighting in many stores often be insulting to the complexion.

Testing colors on your hand and wrist is also not only  a waste of time but also deceptive. The nature of your skin on your arm is different from  your face, and the color will be too. The truth is that any part of the body other than your face may be darker or lighter than other parts.  The only spot to effectively test the shade is the area where it is going to be worn.  This is why department stores are a great place to test foundation colors since they will let you try it right in the store, Just be sure to use one of the alternate lighting sources that they often have available.   Be sure to remove any foundation you are currently wearing in order to test the color.

Choose foundation that appears similar to what you believe is your own shade, then choose a few shades up or down from which to compare. Typically, yellow-based foundations look the most natural, and warm on medium light, and darker skins. Be careful with a pinker base, which works more effectively on cool complexions, because it can often enhance reddish tones that you are trying to conceal.

You also need to evaluate your foundation color every season, as the skin color changes during the year, and also at critical points in your life such as adolescence, and pregnancy.
