How To Choose The Right Makeup Foundation?

Many women don’t really know which makeup base is suitable for their skin tone, nor the correct lipstick colour!

The Makeup foundation is used to equalise the skin tone and gives it a defined texture, using it in your daily makeup routine is a MUST.

On this article you are going to learn some easy tips that you will need to follow for choosing the right foundation colour for your skin tone. Also, how to match it with the suitable lipstick colour for you.

To make this process easy to understand, we are going to split this into two types of skins only. From there, you will need to place your skin tone either by getting closer to the whitest tone or to the brownest tone.

White skins: For white skins you need to choose cold colours. Always one or even two tones more than your skin colour, but not more. You need to make sure you don’t go further than two tones as you don’t want people to see the difference between your neck and face, or the rest of your body and you face. When it comes to the rest of the makeup, for white skins, red and pink lipstick colours are very good. They look spectacular as well as smokey eyeshadows with dark colours.

Brown skins: For brown skins you need to choose warm colours. But, here the difference between brown and white skins is that, brown can play with the tones a bit more than the white skins. Besides going further than their skin tone by two tones, they could also decide if those two tones can be darker or lighter. Depends if you would like to look like you just came back from your beach holidays, or you would like to make your skin look a bit lighter. Just remember no more than two tones, as you don’t want to get that unnatural look!

The Mate lipsticks look gorgeous on brown skins. Also, using dark colours it makes the lips standout and look more juicy.

Colours such as chocolate tone or even purple for the brave ones are amazingly beautiful.
