HOW TO FIND THE RIGHT FOUNDATION

GET TO KNOW YOUR SKIN, FIND YOUR SHADE AND DISCOVER YOUR FEEL-GOOD FORMULA

Let’s face it; foundation is fundamental to all our make-up routines and serves as a canvas for other products! Your foundation needs to meet the needs of your skin type as well as giving you the desired coverage and colour. Get your base right and master your feel-good make-up look! Here’s how to select the right foundation for you.

UNDERSTAND YOUR SKIN TYPE

Does your foundation get restless and run rogue? Your skin type will affect how a foundation sits on your face. You want it to feel comfortable and stay put! So grab your mirror and get ready to analyse…

• Is your skin looking oily? For skin that loves to shine at the worst times, try a mattifying formula like our tea tree enriched Matte Clay Skin Clarifying Foundation.

• Got sensitive skin in need of the delicate touch? Try our Fresh Nude Foundation enriched with Community Trade organic aloe vera, known for it’s soothing properties.

• Got combination skin that can’t make up its mind? You may need to combine products or switch up your foundation depending on the time of year. Our Fresh Nude Tinted Beauty Balm SPF 30 provides that extra boost of hydration and can be worn under a fuller coverage foundation in dry-skin weather.

HOW TO FIND THE RIGHT FOUNDATION SHADE

1. IDENTIFY YOUR UNDERTONES

If you have warm undertones you probably tan easily, have greenish veins and look great in gold. If you have cool skin undertones, you probably burn easily, have bluish veins and look great in silver.

2. TEST THE SHADES

Next, test the shades that you think are a good match on your jawline in a well-lit environment.

3: Watch It Disappear

If a shade stands out, it’s too light or dark. If the test shade ‘disappears’ into your skin, it’s a match!

4. TAKE IT HOME

Once you've chosen your shade, pick up a 7-day sample of a foundation of your choice in store to try before you buy!

HOW CAN I TELL IF I HAVE WARM OR COOL UNDERTONES?

Warm skin tans easily, has greenish veins and suits gold jewellery, while cool skin burns easily, has bluish veins and suits silver jewellery best. If it’s tricky for you to tell, you have neutral undertones.
