How to Pick the Right Foundation


Picking the right foundation makeup can be tricky. Wrong shade, improper application, and you’ll look like a clown. Without a doubt, choosing the right one can be an epic quest, especially for those who are not really into cosmetics. Here’s a simple guide that will help you on how to pick the right foundation.

Consider Your Skin Type

You can’t tell if the foundation suits your skin color by simply looking at the bottle. Don’t hesitate to try it on your skin before you buy. Consider your skin type and decide whether you want a powder, spray, cream to powder or liquid type of foundation. If you have an oily skin, you may want to pick the powder foundation as it mattifies shine. On the other hand, if you have a dry skin, opting for a cream foundation is ideal as it helps moisturize your skin.

No-Makeup-Look Foundation

If you want to achieve a no-makeup look, pick a flesh-toned foundation. This will give you a more natural look as if you’re not wearing a makeup at all but enough to cover up your blemishes and redness.

Pick a Foundation with Higher SPF

Sunscreen Protection Factor or SPF is essential for your skin to protect it from harmful ultra violet radiation. Majority of the foundations these days come with SPF. The higher the SPF, the better as it offers more protection.

Always aim for the better. Do not rush. Picking the right foundation can be a tedious task. But, if you take your time finding the right one that works best on your skin, then you’ll surely achieve the look that you desire.

A Message from Old Friends

I am a bit skeptic every time an old friend tried to get in touch with me. It’s not that I am not happy, it just that sometimes most of them don’t actually get in touch to reminiscence the old times and really want to stay in touch to see how you are doing right now. Most of them get in touch and then after contacting several times, they offer some insurance products or anything they sell and then they expect you to buy it from them. I am tired of this kind of offer. And if I rejected their offer then they don’t contact you anymore.

That’s why I am a bit skeptic when there is one email from an old friend or a friend request on my social media because in the end, they just want to offer something with me hoping to buy it. No, thank you. I just can’t believe that our friendship only worth like that. The other day, there is one college friend and after emailing me twice, he eventually want to ask me some software program I am expert at. After I have given the answer, he stopped emailing me back. I don’t know why they do that. I am feeling like I am being used. I try really hard to see the good in people, but eventually they only let me down.
