– When matching a foundation to your skin, it’s best to test on the face. Apply a thin stripe of two to three shades of foundation above and below your jawline to see which suits your face and neck. The right shade of foundation should match your natural skin tone; if it disappears on your face, it’s the right colour. Always apply a testing stripe as thinly as you’d normally wear, as too much product will distort the colour into looking darker than it is.
– If the skin on your chest is darker than your face, select a foundation one shade darker or use a bronzing powder to achieve the desired look, remembering to apply down onto your neck as well.
– Liquid foundations are best applied to the back of the hand first to warm before applying to the face.
– Control sheerness by blending and spreading, using broad, light strokes.
