Foun­da­tion FOOT­NOTES

Strug­gling to find your foun­da­tion fit? Use these tips to help get your best base ever.

Cosmopolitan (India) - - FAST GLAM -

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.
