How To Apply Foundation Correctly?

1. Know Your Tone To find the right shade for your foundation is first to understand the undertone of your skin. Are you warm toned, neutral toned or cool toned? Be sure of the answer before proceeding further. Look at the insides of your wrist. If the veins appear blue or purple, you have a cool undertone. If they look green, you have a warm undertone and, if you have a difficult time in deciding the exact hue or they look like a blend of blue and green, you most likely have a neutral undertone.

2. Check The Shade On The Cheek & Neck Never swatch a foundation on your wrist or hands as the skin shade is different from that of your face. Always swatch it on your cheek and neck, allow it to settle for a while, and then see if that is the right shade for you.

3. Swatch It On Your Forehead Swatch it on your forehead and blend and let it stay for a while. Look close and see whether the shade has disappeared or not. If it has, it is the right one for you.

4. Look For a Well Lit Spot While Swatching For the best match, make sure you test the product in good light. Because the foundation shade is likely to look different in a place that is dark or does not have sufficient light.
