Here’s another tip for Tip Tuesday:

Today’s tip is about A Makeup Mistake When Applying Foundation:

When applied correctly, makeup can give you an instant confidence boost, but when not done right it can also be a quick way to make you feel like wearing it was a big mistake.

Being the base, the foundation of your makeup, it is very important to get it right. The formula and color of foundation you choose can make all the difference.

Here are the previous Foundation Tips we have discussed

1: Properly prepare your skin

2: Choose the correct formula

3: Blend your foundation down past your jawline

4: Set your foundation correctly.

Todays’s tip is: Change your foundation formula along with the changing seasons.

Just because your go-to formula works great in the spring and winter doesn’t mean it’ll be as effective during the heat of the summer. Not all foundations perform the same way during different weather conditions.

While you might find that the formula of a hydrating tinted moisturizer is exactly what your skin needs for the dry winter months, whereas switching to a powder or matte formula might work better for your skin during those sweaty months of the summer.

Some of my favorite foundation formula variations are the L’Oreal Paris True Match Mineral Foundation and Almay Smart Shade Skintone Matching Makeup

If you make this foundation faux pas, don’t be too hard on yourself, we all make mistakes. 😉

  1. This is true for some but not everyone. I live in Florida and since we don’t experience extreme season changes gets, my skin stays the same year-round. So I don’t have to change formulas and can use the same ones in the winter or summer.
