in Foundation

Have you ever had the urge to run up to someone and blend in their foundation? Have you ever been distracted by, just plain bad makeup fashion? We have all had these moments and probably have been the brunt of a few stares ourselves. Perhaps the problem lies not with the makeup, but with the lack of knowledge and purpose of the makeup. And who can place blame? There are so many foundations from which to choose; liquid, cream, cream to powder, mineral, hypoallergenic, and the list goes on.

Foundation and Its Purpose

Foundation is exactly as the word implies : it is the foundation (basis) for a beautiful face. The purpose of foundation is to even out the skin tone and hide imperfections. Its purpose is not to disguise the face, draw attention to inevitable flaws, or even shock the viewers. It is the primer for which to showcase the features that we most adore.

Types of Foundation

Foundation comes in three basic forms; liquid, cream, and powder. Given these three forms, combinations arise such as moose foundation, cream to powder foundation, mineral foundation, and tinted moisturizer.

Foundations may also come with specialized formulas to fit the needs of specific skin types. For instance, foundations are made for sensitive skin, oily skin, and dry skin. There are foundations for rosacea, birthmarks, and scars.

With so many types of foundations to choose, let's begin with the basics: liquid, cream, and powder.

Liquid

Liquid foundations are wonderful because they are easy to apply and are very natural looking when applied in makeup fashion. Liquid foundations offer medium coverage. They are well suited for dry skin types because of the high moisture content. Look for liquid foundations that are oil free. Brands like Clinique and Clarins have a selection of foundations formulated to meet most skin types.

Cream Foundation

Cream foundation offers excellent coverage that is milky and flawless. Cream foundations come in a compact or stick. They are convenient and quick to apply in makeup fashion. Cream foundations are so versatile that they can be used as a corrector. With a high moisture content, the cream foundation is a perfect choice for dry skin. Look for creams that contain moisturizer for a smooth finish. Arbonne stick foundation provides botanical ingredients to improve the quality of the skin. A promising product to try is Cover FX . This cream foundation comes in a compact and is recommended by dermatologists for rosacea and acne.
