The key to having flawless skin is by wearing the perfect combination of foundation and face powder. However, many women fail to identify a foundation that matches their skin tone and type perfectly.
Following are the signs that show you are not wearing the correct foundation shade:
1. The Color Of Your Face And Neck Do Not Match
A step many ladies forget the most is to evenly applying the foundation on their neck alongside their face. The key to using a foundation is to have a decent, flawless look – something which may not look fake.
2. Applying Powder Leaves A Fake Effect On Your Face
If the compact you are using gives a white, cakey look to your face, there’s something wrong that you are doing. Using a loose powder alongside foundation is a must. The key here is that a powder should coat your face when you’ve applied a foundation. If it fails to do so, the combination you have is wrong. Either your foundation shade is not correct or you are not applying the suitable powder.
3. You Checked The Shade Of The Foundation By Applying It On Your Hand/Wrist
The shade of your face and hands are never the same. Some people have uneven skin color even on their face. Needless to say, do not fall for applying the shades on your wrists to check the shade that suits the best. Check the shade by applying it onto your temples or on the jawline.
4. If Your Foundation Looks Heavy On You, It Is Not The Right Shade
Foundations are supposed to make you feel light. If it is standing out and giving a heavy feel to your face, there’s something wrong with the shade you are applying. Foundations are not supposed to add a fake look to your face.
