Transcript:Foundation for Fair Skin Tones
Hi! My name is Ana Crane Simpson with Applied Cosmetic Services for About.com, and today I’m going to show you what to look for when purchasing foundation for fair skin tones.
Choosing a Foundation
Foundation is a makeup that is liquid, cream or powder based that gives the appearance of even skin and conceals any imperfections. If you have relatively smooth skin that is free of any spots and blemishes, then you can opt for a light tinted moisturizer for daily wear. It provides you coverage while letting your skin breathe. But if your skin requires more coverage for an important event, or even just a night out on the town, then you definitely require a good foundation.
Skin Type and Coverage
But always remember: the most important thing to consider while buying a foundation is your skin type and the amount of coverage you will need. This will also determine the products you will need and how much money you will need to spend. Today we will be discussing the best foundation for Sensitive Skin.
Find a Matching Shade
If you have light or pale skin, you probably have yellow and pink undertones. You will need to match the foundation for your specific tone. Try two or three different shades on one area of your face, and check them under natural sunlight. You should be able to notice immediately which tone is best for you, as some will look too light and others too dark. And those are just a few tips on what to look for when shopping for Foundation for fair skin tones.
