Shopping for foundation isn’t easy but with these foolproof tips you’ll be able to pinpoint your perfect match in no time.
KNOW YOUR SKIN TYPE
If you suffer with dry skin, you’ll notice that some formulas cling to certain areas, causing skin to look pigmented and dull. Opt for a base with moisture-rich ingredients for a dewy, radiant finish.
KNOW THE OCCASION
If you’re after heavy coverage that lasts into the night, look for a matte, long-wearing liquid. Or, if you want something light for daytime touch-ups, try a powder-based compact.
KNOW YOUR SHADE
Gone are the days of limited selection – some foundation ranges now come in as many as 40 different shades. Visit your local House of Fraser beauty counter for a colour match.
