The daily office-going crowd deserves to look good and working women, in particular, need a bit of extra touch to add to their natural glamour. The choice of cosmetics in the market can send you on a whirlwind spin and hence, selecting ones that are harmless and ones that deliver results is essential.
At one of my makeup courses sessions I was taught about the use of full-coverage foundations to cover imperfections and even the finest visible lines. Such foundations are typically thick and tend to be heavy on your face and hence, must be applied smartly. You don’t want to walk out looking like a white-faced clown.
During the Diploma in Health course, I gained in-depth knowledge of foundations created for complete coverage. These are good on skins that experience less irritation and acne. Sensitive skins do not hit a friendly note with such cosmetics. The choice of available products for acne prone skin is limited and use is minimal. This is why clients with dry to normal skin can handle a bit of heavy makeup, but the only reason why our instructor suggested otherwise for clients with oily to combination and acne prone sensitive skin types, who must be handled differently, is the danger of irritation and infection.
Heavy makeup contains more pigments to be able to cover up redness, acne marks and other flaws and to help you decide, here are a few tips.
SPF makeup helps prevent premature aging. It protects against skin damage and concerns, which is why it is important to choose make up with an approved SPF value and one that is skin-friendly and devoid of ingredients that read as Aerosol spray, Retinyl palmitate and Oxybenzone.
Mineral or Powder based makeup works well to cover redness and pigmentation. It cuts the shine and the finish is flawless.
Beauty classes foundations as per skin types are formulated to cater to different reactions. Hence, choosing the right shade and formula for your skin is essential more than just the foundation type.
