Five tips for using foundation


NEVER TEST foundation on your hand it’s always a different colour from your face. Always apply it to your jaw line. The right shade for you is the one that disappears into your skin.

If you can’t decide between two foundation shades, go for the one that matches neck.{{more}} Matching foundation to the lightest areas of your face can make you look ashy, while matching on darkest areas can cause you to look overly make up, so matching on the neck normally is a balance between the two.

You’ve been wearing too much foundation if you can’t see any of the pores on your skin. Your natural texture is supposed to show through a little.

If your make up starts to shine, use blotting paper rather than reapplying powder, which can often start to look too heavy and caky.

For a softer look on a night out, apply your foundation before you take a warm bath the warmth sets the foundation and creates a dewy look.
