5 top tips for choosing the right colour foundation
- Colour is the key. Foundation needs to match your “under” skin tone to look natural. Make up artists and colour consultants use different techniques to determine what colours are best for you. But when it comes to foundation for mature women, my 13 years of experience tells me that beige, neutral and pink tones are more flattering to older women.
- Choose a foundation you cannot see on the skin. This sounds counter intuitive but a lustrous skin look is gained with a foundation that isn’t detectable on the face.
- Apply a sheer layer of make up. Foundation looks more natural if it’s applied very thinly and not like a mask
- Don’t go to light. To avoid a wishy washy look that makes you look tired and lacklustre don’t choose a foundation shade that is too light or white
Make up is too light and white
- Don’t choose a colour that’s too dark or orange.
Many make up manufacturers use a base that is very yellow or orange. Young women seem to like this look, but it gives a heavy coverage and a dark, heavy and aged look
Make up too orangey and dark
