Things to know before applying a foundation
Before applying or investing in a foundation, here are certain things you should keep in mind.
1. Skin Type
Consider your skin type while finding a foundation that suits your needs. After all, be it dry, oily, sensitive, combination or dry, every skin type has different needs. For instance, a foundation for dry skin may not suit oily skin. Similarly, a foundation for oily skin may not suit dry or other skin types.
2. Understand your skin tone and undertone
You should also take into account your skin colour and your undertone while picking the right Maybelline foundation shade. Undertones are broadly categorised as follows –
• Warm - Your skin has hints of yellow or golden
• Cool - The underlying colours in your skin are reds, blues, or purples
• Neutral - You have a mix of both, warm and cool hues
Here is How To Determine Your Undertone Before Finding Your Foundation Shade. To find your ideal Maybelline foundation online, you can use the Maybelline Shade Finder tool that will help determine your skin tone in just a few clicks, from the comfort of your home.
3. Decide on your desired level of coverage
Depending on the kind of makeup look you’re going for (a full-glam or no-makeup look), you can opt for a natural to medium or a full coverage foundation.
Choose a formula (liquid, cream, powder) that complements your skin type and offers the desired finish. A liquid foundation is ideal for dry skin while a powdered foundation is best suited for oily skin. If you have combination skin, you can top off your liquid foundation with some powder foundation.
5. Swatch Test
Test the foundation on your jawline or wrist to see how it blends with your skin.
Look for long-wear or water-resistant options if you need the foundation to last all day. A long-lasting foundation can save you some time and money in the long run.
Types of foundations
1. Liquid Foundation
This is one of the most popular types of foundation. It comes in a liquid form and offers various levels of coverage, ranging from sheer to full. Liquid foundations are easy to blend and work well for most skin types. From the Fit Me liquid foundation to the Superstay full coverage foundation, Maybelline has a variety of liquid foundations to choose from.
2. Cream Foundation
Cream foundations have a thicker consistency than liquid foundations and provide more coverage. These face foundations are suitable for dry to normal skin types and often come in compact packaging.
3. Matte foundation
Matte foundations are a type of face foundation that provide a non-shiny finish to the skin. Unlike foundations with a dewy or luminous finish, matte foundations have a more velvety texture, which helps control excess oil and shine on the face.
If you prefer a natural-looking matte finish that blends seamlessly into your skin, try the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation. The Maybelline liquid foundation has a lightweight texture that delivers a flawless matte finish, making it ideal to use for people with oily and normal skin types.
4. Stick Foundation
Stick foundations come in a solid, stick-like form and are convenient for on-the-go touch-ups. They offer medium to full coverage and work well for normal to dry skin types.
5. Full coverage foundation
Full coverage foundations are designed to provide maximum coverage and effectively conceal a wide range of skin imperfections. This type of face foundation is highly pigmented and is intended to create a flawless and even complexion, covering blemishes, dark spots and other skin concerns.
If you prefer a full coverage foundation that can last all day, the Maybelline Superstay Full Coverage Foundation can be the right match for you. The saturated colour pigments in this long-lasting foundation deliver 24-hour wear for a concentrated coverage that does not fade or shift all day.
6. Foundation with sunscreen
Foundations with sunscreen, also known as a ‘foundation with SPF,’ is a type of face foundation that combines the benefits of a foundation with the added protection of sunscreen. These face foundations not only help even out the skin tone but also shield the skin from the harmful effects of the sun's UV rays.
The Fit Me Fresh Tint is a makeup tint similar to a natural foundation with an added benefit of sun protection with SPF 50. Enriched with vitamin C, it has a lightweight formula that easily blends into the skin.
How to pair a foundation with other makeup products?
Pairing a foundation with other makeup products is essential to achieve a cohesive and well-balanced makeup look. Here are some tips on how to effectively pair your foundation makeup with other makeup products:
1. Complete your face makeup
Start with a makeup primer that helps create a smooth base for the foundation, extends its longevity, and minimises the appearance of pores and fine lines. After applying the foundation, use a Maybelline Fit Me Concealer to spot-conceal any remaining blemishes, dark circles, or imperfections. Choose a concealer that matches your foundation or go a shade lighter to brighten the under eyes. Then, set your face makeup by using a face powder.
2. Apply a blush and highlighter
Choose a blush shade that complements your skin tone. Apply it to the apples of your cheeks and blend it slightly upward and outward. For a luminous and radiant glow, apply a highlighter to the high points of your face, such as the cheekbones, brow bones, bridge of the nose, and cupid's bow.
3. Start with your eye makeup
4. Complete the look with lip makeup
