Struggling to find your foundation fit? Use these tips to help get your best base ever.
Don’t test on your hand. Use your jawline. The shade that ‘disappears’ into your skin is your colour.
Can’t reapply during the day? Try long-lasting formulas. They offer the best all-day coverage.
Don’t apply it like moisturiser. Use a small amount. Start at your nose and work outwards—you’ll never get tide lines this way.
Feel like foundation gives you a chalky complexion? You need a more hydrating formula, and always apply primer first.
Suffer serious shine? Ditch the liquid ones and go for a compact foundation instead. The consistency is naturally heavier, so it easily conceals excess oil.
Foundations can cause sensitive skin to break out. Switch to a mineral foundation (in either powder or liquid form) to nix any irritation.
Lucky enough to have great skin? Ditch foundation and use tinted cream instead. Or mix base and moisturiser in equal proportions for a super sheer coat.
