Applying Foundation for Make-up
Foundation is the base of make-up. With the help of right selected and accurate applied foundation you can hide the roughness, spots, pimples, irritated area of the skin. Light liquid foundation contains a lot of oil and moisture that is useful for dry and normal skin. Compact foundation is suitable for oily skin and hides skin imperfections excellently. There are foundations for combined skin and sensitive skin with calming effects. You should use only quality cosmetic of wide known firms, the products of which are indicated with release date and serviceable life.

Always apply foundation that suits your natural skin colour. If your face`s natural colour is light, avoid any dark foundation colour. If you have any blemishes on your face, avoid any pink tints.


  • Applying FoundationCleanse your face, and apply moisture cream on the face and throat. Let the cream be absorb by the skin for 3 - 5 minutes. If your skin is oily or combined then put the tissue on the oily areas of your face (for example the nose, chin and forehead).

  • Dot a small amount of the foundation on the forehead, blend evenly with fingertips, then do the same with the cheeks, nose and chin. Don`t apply too much or too little of foundation, since it looks untidy.

  • Cover small pimple and red spots with concealer or cream.

  • Follow with your favourite loose or pressed powder. It means translucent loose powder for normal-to-oily skin and pressed powder for normal-to-dry skin. The powder must be the same tint that foundation is.

  • Types Of Foundation

  • Matt: Light fluid or powder. Gives oily skin a non-shiny finish.
  • Oil-free: For blemish-prone skin. It gives a matte finish and contains no pore-clogging ingredients.
  • Moisturising Liquid or cream: For dry or mature skin.
  • Stick: Great for all skin types. Mix with moisturizer to make it sheerer under your eyes and around your nose.
