My name is Shelli and I am a Freelance Make-Up Artist and Beauty Advisor.
I used to work with Bobbi Brown in Myer Brisbane City. I consider myself a beauty junkies. I love make up, beauty and skincare products. I guess in my own experience shopping around is the key to find the perfect products that works for us. Some women when they hear the word "Foundation"  seems to have bad associations kinda translates like serious thick cosmetic artifice. The keys are to find the right formula, match skin color and how to apply it. And here is my guides how to find the right match color foundation for you. Lets start.


Buying Foundation

Please do not scrimp here as this is the essential item in your makeup kit. You can buy the rest of your makeup from discount stores but if its possible purchase foundation in department store. Not only you get professional guidance in choosing formula and shade, you also can test the product at the counter, consult with the salesperson plus you may ask for a small tester to take home. And the most important this is the base of your makeup steps which stay longer on your skin. 
  1. Oily Skin: Choose for an Oil-Free liquid/compact foundation
  2. Normal to Oily Skin: Choose a stick foundation
  3. Normal to Dry Skin: Choose a creamy liquid foundation or a stick foundation 
  4. Dry Skin: Choose a moisturizing cream compact/balm

The best part of face to find the right color is along jawline. Blend the foundation and see how it looks on your skin. The right color one is the 'disappear' one, means the product blends well in between your face and neck color. It looks naked enough but gives the illusion of better skin. Now from that point you have to be your own makeup artist. Carry a mirror outside to see how it looks in natural light. Yes it sounds too much and weird enough but remember the mission here is to find the perfect product.
