How to pick the perfect foundation shade
  • Use your jawline to determine your skin tone

The first step in picking the right foundation shade is to determine your skin tone using your jawline as this part of your face is the most accurate representation of your skin complexion. Once you have established your skin tone, that information can guide you in selecting your foundation.

  • Try different shades as close to your skin complexion as possible

Now this is the fun part. Once you have established your skin tone, it is time to try various shades as close to your complexion as possible. Sometimes you may find that you need to mix 2 different shades of foundation to achieved desired results, which is why testing similar shades is an important step in picking the perfect foundation shade.

  • Select the right coverage

If you want your foundation to stay on all day or you have hyperpigmentation/skin issues you want covered, then you may want to go for full coverage foundation. If you are unsure of the type of coverage you would need, then you can opt for light or medium coverage as you can wear your foundation lighter or heavier with more application.

  • Get the right finish for your skin type

When it comes to selecting the right foundation finish, you would want to opt for the right type for your skin. For oily and combination skin, matte finish are usually best, while dewy foundations are usually more suitable for normal and dry skin.

  • Make use of virtual try-on tools

Many beauty brands and retailers now provide opportunities to try out makeup virtually. This is a great idea if you rather try makeup from the comfort of your home rather than going in stores. Plus, it is a lot healthier for the skin as well as you won’t have to worry about how frequently the makeup brushes are cleaned and all.

  1. Have a Skin Care Routine

You can start taking care of your skin at a young age, and you will continue throughout your entire life. If you want your skin to look healthy, you need to keep it clean and hydrated. The right skin care will ensure that your skin stays smooth, hydrated, and glowing. You can use sunscreen to protect your skin from the UV light of the sun, and choose a moisturizer that keeps your skin hydrated. It is important to choose skin care products that are designed for your skin type, age, and other factors. When you take care of your skin, it will look great for many years to come.

  1. Try Mink Lashes

Many people today are trying treatments to enhance their lashes, and mink lashes are very popular. These lashes are made from both real mink fur and material that is similar to this fur, and they are light, soft, fluffy, and natural looking. If you are looking for a full look that still looks natural, this is a great option. Some people say that they last longer because they are lighter than other materials that are used. They come in different lengths and thicknesses, so you can customize your look. This type of lash is great for building volume, and you can get them for both top and bottom lashes.

  1. Take Care of Your Teeth

Your teeth are important to you throughout your entire life. When you take care of them, they look great and function as they were intended. Your smile is closely connected to your beauty, and when you are uncomfortable with your teeth, you are less likely to smile. However, when you are pleased with your teeth, you can smile. In addition to brushing and flossing, you can get whitening treatments. There are many other cosmetic procedures that are available if you need to repair a broken tooth or improve your smile.

  1. Manage Your Stress

When you are stressed out, it shows in your face and your body. Stress can have an impact on your skin and your hair. It can cause increased sebum production that leads to clogged pores, and it can cause other skin disorders such as psoriasis, eczema, and more. Stress also lowers your skin’s ability to heal itself, and it can cause you to neglect some of your self care practices. You can work on reducing stress by trying meditation or exercising.

  1. Take Care of Your Nails

If your nails are dirty or broken, people will notice. It is important to make sure that you clean your nails to keep them healthy and strong. You can paint them and shape them, or just wear them naturally, but make sure that they are clean. Pay attention to the nail polish you choose because some can leave stains. Start with a clear coat to avoid any staining.
