18 Best Platforms 2022 – Top Platforms for Your Face
What should you look for in a platform?
Knowing your skin well is key to finding the perfect foundation, as certain formulas can make or break your entire routine. Here’s what you should consider when buying your next foundation.
Shade range – The wide shade range makes it easy to find shade close enough to your skin tone. When considering shades, understanding your tone is especially important because a good tone match will result in a seamless makeup look. You can always ask the salesperson to help you match your skin tone or consult our guide here.
Network coverage Depending on your preference, most foundations are divided into three types of coverage: light, medium, and full. Lighter consistency similar to skin tone and BB/CC cream; they’re sheer and lightweight, and flatter your skin, but don’t necessarily cover blemishes or dark spots nor provide fuller coverage. Medium and full coverage formula covers most (if not all) spots and hyperpigmentation.
End: There are many types of foundation you can choose from, including matte, natural or dewy. Dry skin should prefer foundation with a natural or dewy finish, while oily skin often chooses matte/soft foundations.
What is the best way to apply foundation?
To avoid tangle-free foundation, it’s best to apply foundation with a brush. But certain recipes require other tools. Light foundation can be applied with your fingers if you’re looking to accentuate your natural skin in a subtle way. For thicker formulas, makeup brushes and sponges help coat your skin evenly and can be used to create your desired coverage.
