Daily Tip: Picking The Right Shade Of Foundation

Picking the the right shade for your foundation and concealer can be difficult but the wrong shade can throw off your entire look. When it comes to oil free foundation or tinted moisturizer it is important to know that as it mixes with the oils in your face it changes the color, it actually darkens. the same thing happens with concealer so you are better off going with a shade that is slightly lighter then your natural skin tone. If you are unsure you can ask for samples in 2 shades and try it at home that way you can see how it wears all day as well as how it looks in different lighting. 

* If you are older going a shade lighter will actually give you a more youthful appearance. 

* Using a damp sponge will give you a more sheer look and blend better to avoid any lines

* If you use a brush to apply foundation first use the brush to apply your moisturizer the moisturizer left on the brush will give you a more sheer look as well making blending easier

* Tinted moisturizers/bb cream/cc cream are better espically for more mature skin

* Mix a little primer (I like to use Laura Mercier in Radiance) with your foundation or tinted moisturizer for a more sheer/radiant look (translation, youthful)

* Break the rules! I have pink undertones but if I use a warmer (peach) tone it can actually give you a more youthful look. Try the opposit and see how it works for you, if you are nuetral try pink and peach to see which looks good on you. It adds more dimension. 

* Use sparingly. Most of my issues with discoloration is in my T Zone so I apply the dots of my base in that area and blend out

* NEVER use foundation to cover up flaws that is what concealer is for

* Do not use base to darken your skin that is what bronzer is for

* Blend, blend, blend and then blend some more this includes your neck
