    How to Pick the Best Foundation for Your Skin Tone

    If you want an amazing looking skin, then you have to choose the right foundation. Period. Choosing the right foundation will complement the rest of your look and your natural skin tone, helping you to look your best.


    Here are some tips for finding the perfect foundation for your skin tone.

    Know Your Undertones

    Bob Scott is a celebrity makeup artist who has worked with some of the biggest names in the industry. He says that the best way to figure out your skin tone is to look at the veins on your wrist. If they’re green-yellow, then your skin has naturally warm tones. If they’re bluer, then your skin has naturally cool tones. Finally, if they’re a mixture of all those tones, then your skin is most likely neutral.

    If you’re still not sure what undertone you have, you can try something called the “white cream” test. This is where you grab a couple of items of white clothing while wearing no makeup and compare them to your skin. The idea is to choose two slightly different shades of white, one bright white and one off-white or cream.

    If the pure white goes best with your skin tone, then you probably have warm skin tones. If the cream works best against your skin, then you probably have cool skin tones.

    Different types of skin produce different quantities of oil. According to Veer cosmetics reviews, foundations need to be light and thin for those with oily skin. If your skin is dry, then you might prefer a foundation which helps to keep the skin underneath supple.

    Grab a Foundation that Keeps on Working Once You’ve Taken It Off

    It’s all well and good wearing foundation during the day. But once it’s off at night, it’s not doing anything. That’s why it’s a good idea to choose a foundation that keeps on working, even when you go to sleep. Some foundations, for instance, contain firming mushroom extract and hyaluronic acid sphere. Both of these are designed to plump up the skin while the makeup is being worn, helping it look more radiant once the makeup is removed.
    Many other brands also include vitamin C which is designed to provoke the skin into producing more collagen. The more collagen production you have in your skin, the firmer it’ll appear.

    Make Sure That Your Foundation Doesn’t Cause Breakouts

    Some women are prone to breakouts, especially when wearing makeup all day long. As a result, some makeup manufacturers are now making what they’re calling non-comedogenic and non-acnegenic makeup, designed to prevent the formation of spots. This is particularly good if you’re under the age of 25 and still prone to regular breakouts.

    Avoid That “Caked” Look

    One of the problems with cheap makeup is the fact that it’s can sometimes look “caked” on. The good news is that there are many lighter foundations out there that prevent this from happening. Keep an eye out for a lightweight foundation that can conceal problem areas.

    Dr. Brandt laser Fx bright serum Review Dark Spot Corrector Hyperpigmentation

    This is a sponsored post, opinions expressed are solely of the author otherwise stated.

    I have problems with dark spots on my face that I considered very hard to get rid of. I have tried numerous amount of dark spot corrector, lightning agent and even at home remedies but still, the result has not changed positively. I would normally use a color corrector and concealer before applying foundation to cover up the dark spots but I find it takes up a lot of time to apply that much product.

    Dr. Brandt dark spot corrector

    I have been using the Dr. Brandt dark spot corrector for 3-4 weeks now and I have seen a major improvement in the appearance of my skin since the second week of using this product. The dark spot isn’t completely gone but the product is helping to eliminate the dark spots. I use the product at least two times a day along with the Dr. Brandt BB cream with signature FLEXITONE and the Dr. Brandt microdermabrasion skin exfoliant.

    This dark spot corrector has improved the texture of my skin and it has also brightened and faded my dark spots that I have over years and even out my skin tone. This product is for all skin types, so if you have problems with hyperpigmentation, discoloration, dark spots, uneven skin tone don’t be afraid to give this product a try.

    The dark spots aren’t completely gone but they are faded and seem much lighter than before. I’m still using the product on my face to clear up the rest of dark spots completely. I am amazed at the amount of product that is still left in the bottle after I have already completed my four weeks of using this product day and night. I immediately had to check the size of the bottle that’s when I realize it’s a 1fl. oz./30ml bottle and the product is way less than the size of the bottle.

    I would definitely recommend this product to anyone that is having a problem with dark spots and discoloration and I would honestly purchase this product for myself.
    It is recommended by Dr. Brandt to apply on cleansed skin am and pm before moisturizer. This product was created to be used by all skin types. 

    You can also find on the bottle a 4-week guide that you can use to track your improvement to see if this product is working for you or not.

    It has help to fade dark spots, discoloration and improve my skin. My friend actually thought I went to bed wearing makeup; after I sent him a good morning picture of my even more radiant skin. He was like why are you sleeping in makeup? I had to tell him that I don’t sleep in makeup and let him know about this amazing product I received as an ambassador from Dr. Brandt. I also received a lot of compliment about my skin and people started to ask me what I used and they encouraged me to continue using it. 

    What product or treatment do you recommend for dark spot removal?
