The prototype of the modern foundation was born in Ancient Egypt and Greece. Women shaded the face with grated chalk and pounded beans. Later, the Polish make-up artist invented a tool that changed the tone of the face and fell on the skin in a thin layer. Now, without a tonal remedy, not a single woman can do it.
The best foundation creates an even coating
Among the variety of tonal creams in today's cosmetic market is very difficult to make a choice. It is necessary to know the signs by which it is easy to determine the best foundation. First of all pay attention to the texture of the cream. Is it heavy or light? Reminds of a dense cream or an air emulsion? Keep in mind that a dense composition well masks such deficiencies as redness, pimples, pigmentation spots. With it, you can easily remove the circles under the eyes, and also make the complexion smooth. A thick foundation often creates a matte coating that lasts a very long time. However, one of the drawbacks of this cream is the mask effect. Light tonal emulsion also corrects minor imperfections, but it is much easier to shade on the skin. Therefore, with her help you can make the complexion beautiful and monotonous. The advantage of a light foundation is that it is almost invisible to the skin. The delicate and creamy texture of the foundation will not attract attention to the problem areas on the face: peeling, unevenness, redness. On the contrary, this texture will smooth them. Often, manufacturers add light-emitting tonal emulsions to light-reflecting particles that create the effect of highlighting on the face. This should be borne in mind a young lady with oily skin, which shine on the face and without that enough.
The best foundation has caring components
Of course, the best foundation cream has caring ingredients. The cream can up to 50% consist of mineralized water and therefore protect the skin from overdrying. With this cream there is no feeling of tightness and discomfort, on the contrary, moistening is felt throughout the day. Some manufacturers add fruit extracts to the formula of foundation. So, melon provides moisturizing, apricot gives radiance to the skin, apple promotes rejuvenation, and ginger has a tonic effect. Often in the composition of creams there are absorbent components: they eliminate greasy shine. If the foundation in the heat flows from the face, this means that it does not have enough absorbing substances. This cream has to be constantly corrected. A very popular caring component in foundation is vitamin E. As you know, it has excellent antioxidant properties, so it is indispensable for age-related skin.
The best foundation is hypoallergenic
Manufacturers of the best foundation creams necessarily test them for safety. One of the most common culprits of allergy is perfume. Then follows a variety of preservatives, lanolin, fats. The term "hypoallergenic" means that the amount of these substances is minimized. However, it should be remembered that even a safe foundation can not be applied to a dirty or sweaty face and even unwashed hands. This can easily provoke an allergic reaction: the appearance of redness, small pimples and so on. Also at the end of the day, you need to thoroughly wash the foundation to prevent clogging of the pores.
