A smile is the best make-up you can wear - true ... but what a big smile we get from make-up! A great way to express yourself, sometimes just get rid of those impurities and go out the door super confident. Why not? But what a choice there is, between all those products and brands. And which color foundation suits your skin perfectly?We have answered a number of questions about facial makeup, so that you can hopefully make your choice easier.
In our range you can find make-up from the primer to the lipstick. These are all products specifically for the face, such as foundation or blush:
Choosing a good foundation in the right color with the right coverage is difficult enough, and then there is also so much choice that it certainly does not make it any easier. So you have foundation in these variants:
Are you curious which one suits your skin type? Then check the next question!
Foundation is the basis of your make-up look. It evens out the skin and makes it look healthy and radiant. There are many different foundations in all kinds of sizes, substances, colors and coverings. There are a number of things to consider when finding the right foundation for your skin: the color tone, your skin condition (greasy or dry) and coverage.
Skin condition - First you determine your skin type. Is it greasy, or is it dry? With this you determine which type of foundation suits your skin. We have listed a number of factors and two examples of foundations:
Color tone - One of the most important factors in finding the right foundation is color. Of course you don't want your neck or jawline to be a different color from your face. First, there are 3 types of shades:
With neutral skin you do not have to pay close attention to undertone, you can have both undertones. A tip in between: if you are testing a foundation, it is best to do this on your neck or on your jawline, not on your hand. If you know what your undertone is, you can start looking at how light / dark your skin is, pay close attention to the difference between your neck and the foundation. Is your perfect color not listed? You can also mix different colors of foundation together!
Many foundations already indicate by name which color you can expect. L'Oreal Paris True Match Foundation has an ideal system, they have put letters in the foundation name: Warm (D / W), Cool (R / C) and Neutral (N). In addition, the colors go from light (1) to dark (10). Then N1 is, for example, a neutral, light color. Useful!
Coverage - There is also a difference in the coverage of the foundation. Do you really suffer from impurities? Then it is best to use a full coverage foundation. Do you have a fairly even skin of yourself? Then you can go for a transparent or semi-covering foundation for a natural effect.
A blush ensures that you get a beautiful, healthy flush and that your cheekbones are emphasized. This color best suits your skin tone:
Blush for light skin - For light skin, it is best to choose a light blush with a light pigmentation, so that the blush is not too strong and intense.
Blush for medium-toned skin - Do you have medium-toned skin? Then you can actually have all colors, lucky girl! The best colors to choose from are peach or coral blush. These colors will accentuate your cheekbones beautifully.
Blush for dark skin - With a dark skin tone, it is best to opt for a dark blush with a reasonably good pigmentation. A red blush or fuchsia pink are the perfect colors for your skin. A blush with a warm undertone looks amazing!
You apply a primer before you start on your make-up, it is a good basis. You take a little bit of your hand and then spread it all over your face. Thanks to the primer, your make-up stays in place all day long so that it does not fade halfway through the day, ideal! A primer can also provide a matte effect or with a nice glow. You can find these primers in our range:
Both a tonic and lotion are meant to remove the last traces of your make-up, but what's the difference between them? A tonic often contains alcohol and is therefore less suitable for dry and / or sensitive skin. A lotion almost never contains alcohol and that is why a lotion is suitable for every skin, including sensitive skin.
For the best results, it is important that you apply your makeup in the right order. We have described it step by step:
This depends on how you care for your skin, it stands or falls with good skincare. Always clean your face thoroughly, especially before going to sleep and before putting on your makeup. After cleansing your face, use a moisturizing face cream to keep your skin in good condition. In short: make-up can do no harm if you clean your face before applying and use a day cream, and always remove the make-up well (always before going to sleep!) And finish with a night cream. You could use these products for that:
