What is a Foundation?

A foundation is the base when it comes to make-up. The first step in making our look as the best look is by using the right foundation. A foundation prepares the skin before one applies make-up.

Stick Foundation Makeup: The maximum coverage is done by a stick foundation whose main component is cream-to-powder foundation.Initially, this product gives a creamy, rich finish on first application but at the end, it gives a matte finish. In the case of a stick foundation, the coverage can vary from matte to creamy. Many of them also have an added benefit called sunscreen protection.

Stick Foundation Usage: The stick foundation can be used on the areas that plead coverage by simply dabbing them on skin. They can be used directly on the face and the neck. They provide a smoother base and more coverage than any other forms of foundations.

Common make-up mistakes you can avoid

It’s easy to make mistakes, especially when trying to use make-up as paint brush. Most women make the mistake of trying to hide nature’s flaws with make-up. Fact remains that if you have not hit the genetic jackpot, then the only wise thing to do is play to your existing cosmetic strengths.

With that as a new make-up motto, let’s look at some of the most common make-up fiascos.

Ignoring skincare: We all know the sin that using make-up is on bad skin. Good skincare is the first step to great make-up. Don’t smoke, stay hydrated with water and moisturizers, get good sleep and use sunscreen every few hours. Glowing skin can help you go a long way in your effort to make a great impression.

Thin eyebrows: Your eyebrows enhance your eyes and basically define your entire look. While the job is best left to the professionals, budgets and time don’t always allow so. Let the professional define the line once and then tow it. Don’t get carried away plucking.

Wrong foundation: Stick to the colour closest to your natural skin shade. If one colour doesn’t fit the bill, but a few, mix and use; also you’ll need different colours at different times of the year.

Not Staying age appropriate: Don’t change your make-up with changing fashion trends, that’s for teens and young girls. As women, stick to enhancing your features rather than experimenting. Also, stay away from glitter.

Not Blending well and/or excesses: This advice applies especially to foundation and blush. Use the right tools, clean them regularly andspend time doing your make-up well. But this doesn’t mean you slather your face in bronzer for a glow, you’ll just look orange. This goes for powder too, lest you look ashen. Remember that using too much makeup in general is not a great idea.
