Choosing the Right Foundation

Firstly most important is to know your or your model’s skin type:

  • Oily skin – use oil free products
  • Dry skin – use moisturising products
  • Sensitive skin – use fragrance free products

Secondly to get the right colour, test the foundation on your jaw line (never on your hand!).

If the colour looks too orange this indicates it is too dark for you. If colour looks too grey, this indicates it is too light for you. The correct colour foundation will almost disappear on your skin.
