Make-up Tips lesson 1

How to choose a right foundation?
Foundation is the base for flawless make-up and it helps to make your skin tone appear even. There are so many foundation products available nowadays. You may be overwhelmed by the variety and find it difficult to choose the most suitable foundation for yourself. Always choose a foundation with a yellow undertone as most Asians have a yellow skin undertone.

What is the difference between a cream foundation and a liquid one?
Liquid Foundation
- provides natural & light coverage
- water-based/oil-free liquid foundation is good for oily and combination skin
- moisture
-based liquid foundation is suitable for dry skin
- finish with loose power/compact pressed power to set foundation

Cream Foundation
- provides medium to full coverage
- suitable for mature skin, very dry skin, freckled skin and heavily pigmented skin
- normally comes in compact or stick form
- finish with loose powder/compact pressed powder to set foundation better

Two-Way Cake
- provides medium to full coverage
- it's a 2-in-1 foundation
- combination of liquid foundation and loose powder
- can be applied wet (on dry cheek) or dry (oily T-zones)
- suitable for all skin types, especially for combination and oily skin
- great for touch-ups
- loose power/compact pressed powder is not necessary

Tips: The correct foundation colour should looks as natural as your "second" skin under the sunlight.
