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. With face make-up you can just get rid of those impurities and go out super confident. Why not? But.. there is so much choice between all those products and brands. And which color foundation suits your skin perfectly? We have answered a few questions about facial makeup, so that you can hopefully make your choice easier. Let's get started!
When you think of face makeup, you probably think of foundation and concealer pretty quickly, but there's a lot more! Below we have listed all products specifically for the face.
Picking out a good foundation in the right color with the right coverage is difficult enough, and then there is also so much choice, that certainly doesn't make it any easier. So you have foundation in these different variants:
Are you curious which foundation 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 the skin look healthy and radiant. There are many different foundations in all kinds of sizes, substances, colors and coverages. There are a number of things you can pay attention to when finding the right foundation for your skin: the color tone, your skin condition and the coverage.
Skin condition - First you determine your skin type. Is your skin oily or 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 shade - One of the most important factors in finding the right foundation is the color. Of course you don't want your neck or jawline to have a different color than your face. First, there are 3 types of shades:
With neutral skin you don't have to pay close attention to the undertone, because you can have both undertones. A tip in between: if you test 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 look 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? Then you can also mix different colors of foundation with each other!
Many foundations indicate with the name which color you can expect. For example , L'Oreal Paris True Match Foundationhasan ideal system. L'Oréal has 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, for example, is a neutral, light color. Useful!
Coverage - There is also a difference in the coverage of the foundation. Are you very bothered by impurities? Then it is best to use a full coverage foundation. Do you have reasonably smooth skin? Then you can go for a transparent or semi-covering foundation for a natural effect.
A blush ensures that you get a beautiful, healthy blush and that your cheekbones are accentuated. This color best suits your skin tone:
Blush for light skin - If you have 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 skin - Do you have medium 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 - For dark skin it is best to choose a dark blush with good pigmentation. A red or fuchsia pink blush are perfect colors for your skin. A blush with a warm undertone looks amazing!
You apply a primer before you start your make-up, it's a good base. You take a little on your hand and then spread it all over your face. The primer keeps your makeup in place all day so it doesn't fade halfway through the day, ideal! A primer can also provide a matte effect or a beautiful glow. You can find these primers in our range, among others:
If you wear make-up on your face, it is important to remove your face make-up properly. Both a tonic and lotion are meant to remove the last remnants 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.
You apply facial make-up with a brush or a beauty sponge. Sometimes you can also apply make-up with your fingers on your face, a little bit of concealer under your eyes is fine with your fingers. But in general, the result on your face is more beautiful if you use the righttoolsfor face makeup
For the best result, it is important that you apply your make-up in the right order. We have described it step by step:
This depends on how you take care of your face, it falls or stands together with good skincare. Always clean your face thoroughly, especially before going to bed and before putting on your make-up. After cleansing your face, use a moisturizing facial cream to keep your skin in good condition. In short: face makeup can do no harm if you cleanse your face and use a day cream before applying. It is also important that you always remove the make-up properly (always before going to sleep!) and finish with a night cream. Below we have listed a number of skincare products for the face:
