Every woman dreams of a clean, healthy, flawless skin. Unfortunately, not everyone has this kind of nature, so they correct the deficiencies with the help of toning means. To work, they need to be selected correctly.
Determine the skin tone
Tone cream should be chosen only under its own skin tone. Allocate 3 basic tones: warm, neutral and cold. But there is also a mixed type, for example, neutral-cold. To understand what your skin tone is, sit close to the light and examine your wrists in daylight. It is not bad to listen to the opinions of others, because it is often more visible from the outside. Look at the signs of what tone you have more.
Cold skin tone:
- The veins on the wrist have a bluish or purple hue.
- Silver products look better on the skin than gold.
- In the sun, the skin has a bluish tint.
In people with a cold skin tone, a pink color with bluish veins predominates. Hair is often black, dark brown, ashy or light with a platinum tint. Eyes blue, gray, green, dark brown. They go cool pink, red, blue, black, yellow. The skin after the tan becomes red, and after a while gets a copper tide.
Neutral skin tone:
- The veins on the wrist have a blue-green tint.
- The skin looks great both silver and gold.
- In the sun, the skin has a greenish tinge.
If you can not determine whether your skin is warm or cold, most likely its tone is neutral.
Warm skin tone:
- The veins on the wrist are green or olive shade.
- Gold looks better on the skin than silver.
- In the sun, the skin has a light yellowish hue.
People with a warm tone are dominated by yellowish shades with greenish veins. Hair most often with a red tinge, dark red, warm brown and golden hues, light with golden tint. Eyes brown with yellowish veins, gray. They are brown, warm green, cream, brick, coral, terracotta. After sunburn, the skin becomes yellow-brown, often with olive tinge.
Sometimes it's olive tone. It is considered extreme in warm colors. In such skin yellow and green shades predominate.
How to choose the right foundation
Before you go to choose a foundation, you need to prepare the skin for this. Use a scrub, moisturizer and nutrients. In the store where you choose makeup, there should be good lighting. But this may not be enough, so, if possible, go outside and see how much the tone of the skin matches the tone of the skin. Test the funds need not on the wrist, but on the cheek. If it is not visible – the choice is made correctly.
First of all, study the composition of the tonal or foundation. Mineral bases are good for any type of skin. With a voice-frequency cream not so. For oily skin it is important that the oils were as little as possible. The packaging should be written oil-free, oil-control or mattifing. For dry skin, the product should contain oils and moisturizing ingredients. The packaging says hydrating, moisture-rich. For combination skin, cream powder is perfect.
If the skin is clean, foundation should be a light texture. If there are problems, you need to use solid bases. You should prefer tonal creams with a yellowish podton: they fit more often and look more natural.
If the foundation is not selected correctly, you can try to make it lighter or darker. If the cream is lighter than the natural complexion, add fat brown shades, dark rouge or brown lipstick. Do this gradually, do not overdo it. The product will become slightly darker. If the tonal remedy is darker than the natural color of the skin, mix it with a moisturizing liquid cream. The color will become lighter. Or correct the color of the tonal means with a light powder.
