How do i choose the right foundation?

It is not easy to choose the right foundation unless you know what kind of skin you have.

Creating a beauty routine that incorporates all the best skin care products and makeup for your skin type is essential.

How do I choose a foundation?
It may seem overwhelming to choose the right foundation for your skin when there are not only different formulas and shades, but different textures and consistencies. There are powders, liquids and creams. Clarins realizes the importance of selecting products designed for your skin and offers many different foundations based on the different skin types. Each product provides great, long-lasting coverage and is non-comedogenic, but the specific benefits vary depending on the various skin care needs. Whether you have sensitive, dry, oily, or combination skin, Clarins provides a tool to help you select the right foundation for you: Find Your Perfect Foundation.

For optimal results when it comes to applying foundation, be sure to familiarize yourself with Clarins' array of bases and highlighters. It is essential to moisturize and, ideally, prime your skin before using foundation. Moisturizers and primers also have the added benefits of hydration, nourishing qualities and anti-aging properties. When selecting bases and highlighters you will want to keep your skin type in mind.

Which shade of foundation should I use?
When choosing a foundation shade, go for as close to your natural skin tone as possible, or perhaps a shade lighter. If you have a pinkish complexion, lean towards beige-colored shades for foundation, whereas if you have olive skin, try a rose-beige shade. Apricot shades works great against darker complexions.
You will perhaps want to adjust your foundation (and general makeup) shades based on the season, as well. With summer weather you might want to try darker shades and for the winter months you will want to do the opposite and go lighter. For more tips and tricks for those summer months, refer to Clarins' sun makeup section.
