Factors to Consider Before Choosing Foundation for Textured Skin

It is important to get the right kind of foundation that is suitable for your skin. Some of the factors to consider when trying to identify the best foundation for your skin type include -:

  • 1
    Use the Right Shade of Foundation for Your Skin -: There are several types of foundation shades that are designed to match different skin undertones. You will have to get the right shade of foundation for your skin to get the best results from your makeup. You need to know your skin undertone to be able to correctly pick the right shade of foundation.                                                                                                          There are basically three kinds of undertones, these include -: cool, warm and neutral. Cool represents blue, red or pink skin. Warm represents golden, yellow or peach skin and Neutral means your skin is a combination of cool and warm colors.

    Get the Right Foundation for Your Skin Type -: The different types of foundations (powder, liquid, sticks) are made with different kinds of constituents or ingredients that are supposed to cater for the different types of textured skin. Some of the different textured skin types include oily skin, dry skin, skin with large pores or acne scars etc. You need to pick the right foundation with ingredients that address the specific needs of your skin type.                                                                                                         For instance, you need to avoid oil-based foundations if you have oily skin or acne prone skin. Stick foundation or one with moisturizing and hydrating components will be the best option for dry skin. Avoid foundation with ingredients that your skin reacts to if you have sensitive skin or consider buying one that is hypoallergenic. Another good idea to consider all the time is to get foundations with SPF sunscreen to prevent your skin from harsh effects of the sun.
