With so many brands of foundations on the market it can be difficult to select the right shade and formula for your skin type.

Use these tips to help you on your next purchase.


Find out what your skin type is. Is it oily, dry or combination???

If you have oily skin, use a powder foundation or an oil free liquid foundation.

For dry skin use a liquid or cream stick foundation.

For combination skin use a powder foundation or a tinted moisturizer.

Test the selected product out by applying to your jawline or for sealed packages hold close to your jaw line. Make sure it is the right color by looking at it in natural daylight. The correct foundation is the one that seamlessly blends into your skin.

If you buy a foundation that may be a bit lighter or darker, no worries, you can keep these for highlighting and contouring. Many drug stores and cosmetic counters have great beauty return policies so if its not the right color you can return it with no hassle.
