Easy beauty hacks for Insta-ready skin!
It’s important first to test the foundation you’re interested in buying – not just at the counter but by getting a few samples from several brands to try at home.
Some foundations cater for various skin types, such as oily, dry, mature and skin with pigmentation spots.
Testing the colour
- Primer makes your foundation appear flawless and adhere better to your skin.
- Some primers deal with skin problems before you apply foundation, for example minimising shine if you have oily skin or softening lines if you have wrinkles.
- A sponge or ‘beauty blender’ absorbs foundation but creates a lighter and more natural look compared to a brush and blends foundation well without leaving streaks.
- A brush absorbs less foundation than a sponge but deposits more on the skin, so works well if you need heavier make-up. The downside is it can leave streaks.
