Figuring Out Foundation
“You can layer these foundations. For example, start with CC Cream for a great primer and then add a liquid foundation for more coverage.”~Amy Wilson
Let me just start off by saying foundation is a struggle for most women, and for us blind beauties wow. So I thought I would do two things for you today.
- One, talk about what types of foundations are out there.
- Second, discuss where to apply it so it doesn’t look like a mask.
Let’s get some of you off the foundation struggle bus. Lol! I am going to start with the easiest and work my way up to the tougher ones to match. Now I admit I am totally biased on this one because it’s my favorite., it’s CC Cream. The CC stands for complexion corrector.
This CC Cream is a powerhouse. It does multiple things for your skin all at once: it moisturizes, primes, sunscreen and of course foundation. This product blends to match your natural skin tone and it’s the easiest foundation to match for anyone.
Other Types of Foundations
Mineral powders are a popular one. They are great for light coverage. Many different companies make mineral powder. They typically come in circular containers. You shake some of the product onto the lid and apply with a powder brush.
Tip: Investing in a set of quality makeup brushes will take you far and take your product even further. I know by using my brushes I lengthen the use of my foundation and other products. I can recommend different brushes you may want to use.
Now let’s bump it up to some more coverage for that beautiful face.
Timewise Liquid Foundations
Mary Kay has what we call our Timewise Liquid Foundations. These have age-fighting ingredients included in the foundation. It comes in two different types:
- One is matte-wear for those ladies who have combination to oily skin. This formula won’t make your face as shiny.
- The second one is luminous-wear for a skin type of normal to dry.
Tip: Checking the foundation on your jawline is the best way to find your match. Remember Mary Kay consultants will let you try these before you buy. We want you to love the products, satisfaction guaranteed.
Medium Coverage Foundation
There is a Medium Coverage Foundation which gives your face 8 hours of coverage. Its been described to me that it can give you that airbrushed look.
Cream to Powder Foundation
Finally, there is Cream to Powder Foundation. From my understanding, you can either love or hate this one. For myself, having a normal to dry skin type this one sounds nice. I am sure if you have really oily skin this one could be frustrating.
Wow! That’s a lot of information about foundation. I hope you find it helpful.
Tip: You can layer these foundations. Example start with CC Cream for a great primer and then add a liquid foundation for more coverage.
Now let’s talk about how to apply foundation to the face.
- Start in the middle of your face and blend towards the outer part of your face. You can apply in your T-zone (this is your forehead and straight down the middle of your face).
- When getting to the jawline, make sure to take the foundation to your neck. If you stop at your jaw it can look like you are wearing a mask and that’s not good.
Alright, I will wrap it up and wish all of you a fresh and fabulous day!
