Beauty Tip

When applying foundation, always match your base to your neck and any visible areas of your decollete.  Matching foundation to your face will amost always cause there to be a difference in the color of your face and neck.  This is a 'NO-NO', but very common with women of color.

Foundation Cleared Up

Foundation Cleared Up

By Denise Tunnell

Detailed below is an article that was recently included in the Illusions Cosmetics Newsletter.
When choosing makeup products, some are often confused about which foundation product to use. Hopefully the following glossary of foundation terms will help to clear things up.

Foundation formulations:

1) Tinted Moisturizer - A light textured moisturizer with a hint of color. It's intent is to add moisture to the skin while providing it with very light coverage. It is great for any skin type. It can be applied with a sponge or with your fingers as you would normally apply moisturizer.

2) Liquid - A liquid base formula used to apply coverage to the face. It gives a light to medium coverage. Based on the formula of the liquid foundation (oil free or moisturizing) it can be used on all skin types. It may be applied with your fingers, a sponge, or a foundation brush.

3) Cream - A cream based formula used to provide a full coverage to the skin. It is mainly suited for people with dryer skin types or those needing extra coverage. Its best applied with a sponge or foundation brush.

4) Stick - A stick foundation is a cream based formula in a stick packaging. Your personal foundation may be swiped onto the face directly from the stick. Maybe used on all skin types depending on the formula.

5) Cream to Powder - A cream based formula that transforms into a velvety powder finish when it makes contact with the skin. Most formulas are buildable and gives a light to full coverage.
