#AtoZChallenge F- Foundation

One of the most widely used and accepted product amongst us women is Foundation. No matter who you are, of what age category you belong, a foundation is one product found in every woman’s vanity.

Every time there is a party to attend, all of us take out our foundation and doll up our pretty faces. And why shouldn’t we? This single product gives so much of sheen and makes the skin so clear, flawless, and spotless and gives an instant glow.

But sometimes we aren’t able to buy the right shade and due to this mistake, our makeup turns out to be cakey and gives the impression of simply painting our face white just because of the heck of it.

The answer lies in the technique of selecting the right shade for your skin tone. Please, ladies, NEVER allow the sales girl to show the product by swatching on your hands, wrist, arms, fist, wherever. They are not the right places to judge the right foundation for your face.

My two cents? Here they are:

- Always swatch a little product on your jawline, or below the cheeks/ears. Blend it into the skin and see if it has completely blended in.

- If the product is too light for you, your face will look painted.

- If it is dark, the skin will look dull.

- If it blends completely, that is the right shade for you.

- NEVER buy a shade lighter than your skin tone. The aim of the makeup is to keep it as close to the skin tone (and natural) as possible.

- Try to use a foundation brush for the application. And when you apply the foundation, apply the product downwards. The strokes of the brush have to go towards the downside of the face and NOT UPWARDS.

- Then take a beauty blender and slowly dab the foundation into the skin. The better the blending, the better finishing you get.

I have made two videos. One showing on judging the correct shade of foundation 

And the other showing the right application of it.

  2. Hello, fellow A-to-Zer! I loved this post and also the videos included within it! I don't wear make-up often, but when I do wear it, I like to go to extremes, so foundation is a must for that, as it is for all sorts of make-up users. Great!

    1. Yah! Foundation sure is a saviour for many of us!


  3. Yupp, it's a normal practice at most Indian stores to sell you a shade lighter, coz that would make you look "fairer", they say!
    I didn't know you have to keep the strokes downwards. Thanks for sharing these tips yaar!

    1. Yes! And in actual, you should never buy a shade lighter than your skin tone. Always buy a shade that matches the shade of your face and again, not wrist!


  4. Yes foundation or a good base is very important when doing makeup.
