Let’s accept it, makeup is not cheap. Things get trickier when you try to buy a shade online. The shades we see tend to be completely different from the actual shade. While shopping on the internet is easy, ending up with the wrong shade can spoil the fun.
1 Identify your Skin Concerns
Every skin is unique and has its own requirements. Identify them before shopping. If you have oily T zones or combination skin, opt for a matte finish foundation. If you are prone to dry and patchy skin, go for a hydrating formula. For sensitive skin, opt for a clinically approved brand that would not irritate the skin or be too heavy.
2 Go with the Yellow
For Indian skin, formulas with a yellow undertone are ideal. It gives a nice, natural look. On the other hand, white or peachy shades tend to leave a chalky look.
3 Choose your Coverage
The kind of finish you choose can make all the difference. A light coverage will give you a light additional layer that enhances your natural skin color. However, if you want something to cover the blemishes and even out skin tone, you would want to go for a medium coverage formula that is buildable.
4 Read Reviews and Google
Always remember to check the reviews before buying any product. Filter out the latest ones and check the ratio of positive and negative reviews. Look for tutorials featuring the product.
