For makeup lovers, enthusiasts, and professionals, the face serves as the blank canvass in their artistry for beauty. And like any canvass should be, the face must be smooth and clean as much as possible for a nice finish. Although a clear smooth skin should initially serve as a good natural makeup, not everyone is blessed with it. Women with imperfect skin, however, need not to fret because face makeup would serve handy to them. Face makeup creates that perfect base on your face for all other cosmetics to start with. It covers your skin imperfection and lays down a smooth canvass every makeup brush would love to stroke.
A foundation, concealer, and press powder are basically examples of face makeup. There is a lot of it in the market. Some women try to get all the three and the best brand. But the secret really in buying a good face makeup is to get something that matches up your skin. Later, you will realize that you don’t really need to have the three and you will be surprised how much money you can save.
Thus, before hitting beauty shops for a face makeup, know you skin type first. Determine if you have oily, dry, or combination skin. A particular face makeup is especially designed for the type of skin you have so you would achieve the look you want. If you have an oily skin, for instance, you should get a foundation that would not melt into your skin or that would not easily fade due to the skin’s oil.
Usually, oil control liquid foundation and a stick foundation are recommended for people with oily skin especially the ones with acne. Using some blotting paper before applying the foundation is also advised for best results. If you have dry aging skin, you should get luminescent and dewy foundation styles. Putting on a concealer would also help in hiding those wrinkles away. If you have a combination skin, which is very common, liquid or cream foundation will do. If you have ruddy red skin you must apply yellow based foundation to reduce redness. But if you’re blessed with a good smooth and clear skin, sheer liquid foundation is only advised and even just a tinted moisturizer will do for a face makeup.
If you want to save on face makeup, it is important to take care of your skin and always keep it clean as much as possible.
