Discover the basics of foundation: what is it and why do you need it?
Foundation is a product used to make the skin even and perfected. It is applied to the face to hide blemishes, redness and uneven complexion.
Foundation also creates a base for other makeup products, such as blush, bronzer and highlighter. It makes your makeup last longer and creates smooth and radiant skin. So, if you are a makeup novice, discovering the basics of foundation is an essential step to creating a beautiful and confident look.
What types of foundation are there?
In the world of foundation, there are several types to choose from. It is important to know which kind suits your skin type and preference.
A popular option is liquid foundation, which is easy to apply and offers natural coverage.
For those who want lighter coverage, there is the option of a BB or CC cream. These creams moisturize the skin and often include additional benefits such as sunscreen or anti-aging properties.
If you prefer a powder formula, you can opt for a compact powder foundation. This is ideal for oily skin because it helps absorb excess oil.
Finally, there are cream foundations, which offer fuller coverage and are great for dry skin.
The important thing is to experiment with different types and formulas to discover which foundation works best for your skin type and desired coverage. Also, remember to find a good color match so that the foundation blends seamlessly on your skin.
What is the undertone and what should I look for when choosing foundation color?
When choosing a foundation color, it is important to know what the undertone of your skin tone is. Your undertone can be warm, cool or neutral and this will affect which foundation color suits you best.
A useful way to determine your undertone is to look at the veins on your wrists. If you see blue veins, you probably have a cool undertone. If you see green veins, you probably have a warm undertone. And if you have trouble determining what color veins you have, you probably have a neutral undertone.
When choosing a foundation, also pay attention to coverage and formula. Do you want a natural look with light coverage or full coverage? And do you have dry, oily or combination skin? Choose a formula that matches, such as a moisturizing foundation for dry skin or an oil-free foundation for oily skin.
Always the right choice: this is how to choose the perfect foundation color!
Finding the right kind of foundation can sometimes seem overwhelming, but with a little knowledge and practice, you can make the best choice. First, it's important to know what undertone your skin has. This can help determine whether you should choose a foundation with a warm, cool or neutral undertone. In addition, it is also essential to choose the right color that matches your natural skin tone.
A helpful tip is to apply a small amount of foundation to your jawline and compare it to your neck. This way you can see how good the match of the foundation is with your skin tone.
Finally, don't forget to consider the texture and coverage of the foundation. If you have dry skin, you may want to choose a dewy, hydrating foundation. On the other hand, if you have oily skin, a matte foundation with oil-absorbing properties may be more appropriate.

Step by step: this is how to apply your foundation perfectly!
A good foundation is the basis for a flawless look! But how do you actually apply it perfectly?
- First, it is important to lay a good foundation base. Make sure your skin is properly cleansed and hydrated before you start. To do this, use a mild facial cleanser and a moisturizer that suits your skin type. This way you will create a smooth canvas on which the foundation can adhere well.
- Use a foundation brush, sponge or your fingers to spread the foundation evenly over your face. Starting in the center of your face and working outward, use gentle dabbing motions for a flawless finish. Remember to include your jawline and neck as well, so there are no visible transitions.
- Finally, fix your foundation with a layer of powder for long-lasting results. By following these steps, your foundation will look perfect and last all day!
