- To find your shade match, make sure you test out a few samples or at least test it out on your jawline or chest.
- If your skin is oily and acne-prone, opt for a lightweight, oil-free formula, and if your skin is dry and does not break out, try an oil-based foundation.
- To add a subtle glow to your face, mix a liquid illuminator with your foundation.
- Liquid, cream and gel foundations are best applied with a damp beauty sponge.
- Want to make your foundation last all day long? Use a translucent setting powder with a fluffy brush and dust it over your T-zone. You can also set your base with a setting spray.
