Foundation is undeniably the trickiest purchase when you go to the cosmetics store. Choosing the right color for your skin, the right formula and the right product are all important factors you need to consider when buying a foundation. Normally you can get away if you’ve bought a product two shades deeper but when it is your wedding day, you don’t want to make that mistake.
If you want to avoid the clown face on the altar, here are a few tips that can help you choose the right foundation for your makeup.
Choose the Right Formula
Some women prefer liquid foundations; others are a fan of stick or cream. So which one is better? There really isn’t a clear-cut answer for that. Different skin types are suited for different foundation consistencies. If you have dry skin, a liquid foundation will be your best option. If you have oily skin, powder or stick foundation is the way to go. Alternatively, if you are an advocate of a particular type of formula, say liquid, then you can use it and blot out the excess shine and oil with a translucent powder.
Powder and stick foundations are generally easier to apply so if you’re an amateur, these formulas should be your best bet.
Selecting the Right Shade
Ah, the greatest hurdle to choosing the right foundation. Selecting the perfect shade for your complexion is the key to the right foundation purchase. The most easiest and effective solution would be to ask a professional makeup artist do your color-matching.
The best brand suppliers usually color-matching equipment and it won’t hurt to try them out. Test the shades on the back of your hand and test multiple shades on the same hand. Don’t forget to blend it out to see how its final color looks on your skin. The perfect shade will blend and almost disappear on your skin.
Hire a Professional Wedding Makeup Artist
If the stress of choosing the right shade for your foundation is too much coupled with all the other stress of a wedding, you should hire a professional to do your makeup on your wedding day. Professional makeup artists will have the best shades of foundations and the top brands that will make your wedding look flawless.
