Here are some tips to help you choose the right foundation:
find out your skin type. Foundations are usually manufactured to match certain skin types. For example if you have an oily complexion you will need to buy an oil free foundation because your skin doesn't need more oil that it already has
decide on what your foundation should do for your complexion. You can choose from foundations which give a light or a heavy look, a silky, matte or illuminating finish
test your favorite foundation to find the right shade for you on the back of your hand because that is where the skin color is most similar to the facial skin color
make sure there is plenty of light in the area where you test the foundation to make sure that the shade is the correct one for you
make sure the foundation blends into your skin well, that way you will know it will penetrate your skin and not remain on the surface
try several brands before you finally decide for one because not all brands produce the same type of foundations. Some might have ingredients which might work better for you than others
After you purchased the best foundation for you make sure you apply it on your face in front of a large mirror where there is plenty of natural light to ensure best coverage. If the foundation is right for you your skin will look soft, silky and flawless.
