Foundation Makeup

Finding the best foundation match for your skin among countless combinations of foundation texture, shade, finish and coverage can be intimidating at first, but it becomes almost painstakingly obvious once the basics are learned.

Finding the perfect shade is often the most difficult step, as you may need to test foundation makeup on the back of your hand under different lighting before you can be totally sure. Determining the best foundation for oily skin or best foundation for dry skin depends on foundation texture. Oil-free, liquid to powder and matte powder foundations work with oily and combination skin to create a flawless finish, while dewy liquid foundations will offer coverage that will continue to hydrate skin along with your moisturizer.

Go with a sheer coverage foundation for natural everyday looks and get flawless night out looks with full coverage foundation. Whatever makeup look you want to achieve, L’Oréal Paris provides the best full coverage foundations, medium coverage foundations and sheer foundations.

Experiment with your makeup looks and your hair with L’Oréal Paris semi-permanent hair colour.

How to apply foundation with a brush?

Applying foundation makeup with a brush is a great way to ensure flawless coverage. The brushes to use to apply foundation makeup depends on the type of product - whether it is a liquid foundation or a powder matte foundation. L’Oréal Paris offers a wide range of foundation makeup formula that cover your specific needs.

1. Liquid foundation makeup:

Step 1. Use a flat foundation brush. Simply dab the foundation around the center of your face with the brush and start to evenly spread the liquid foundation outwards. A flat rounded brush will make it easy for you to get into the corners of the face like around the nose area.
Step 2. Use a buffer brush to further blend out the product, to seamlessly blend it into your skin. L’Oréal Paris offers different finishes from the Infallible line of liquid foundations, including Infallible Glow, Infallible Full Coverage and Infallible pro-matte - a matte foundation in liquid form.

2. Powder foundation makeup:
Step 1. Use a large foundation brush to apply the powder all over your face. You can use a fluffy brush to apply a thin light coverage area or a dense, kabuki brush for fuller coverage. If you are looking for a powder formula without being an extremely matte foundation, L’Oréal Paris’ True Match compact offers a natural finish with high blendability. For combination skin, you can apply a matte foundation or setting powder to your T-zone with a fluffy brush to mattify skin just where it needs it.
