e. Some foundations even contain medication to dry up pimples;
f. They improve our looks by evening our skin tones, improving our skin colour and texture, disguising blemishes;

How does Foundation help?

Your skin is not all of the same color tone. Foundation does so much, so well. It evens out your complexion, makes flaws seem to disappear, making you look better. Some say foundation harms the skin by logging the pores. On the contrary, it may be good for your skin by protecting it from the sun and harsh weather conditions.

In foundation, there is a light variety for the every day sheer, shine free look and a rich creamy variety for the radiant, formal evening look. Remember it to apply it over moisturizer for easy spreading and blending.
Foundation for Prominent Marks?

To conceal a prominent mark or a pimple on your face, dab a little extra foundation on that mark.

Press lightly with a finger. Do not try to blend by separating the foundation, it will show up again. Just press lightly till dry

Foundation for your Face Shape

1. The ideal face is oval. If the shape of your face is not oval and not to your liking, it is good to use two shades of foundation in order to create the illusion you desire. But perfect blending of the two shades is very important to avoid a patchy look.

2. Choose a shade which matches your skin color and another which is just a shade darker than this one. Keep in mind that dark colored foundation recedes and light colored foundation projects.
