All you need for the perfect beauty regime
For makeup fans, you all know that the right combination of foundation, highlighter, blusher and powder can transform your face. When your face is looking its best, your mood is likely to follow.
It doesn’t matter if you want to be contoured to high heaven, or prefer something more natural, there is the perfect look for you.
Use this guide to help simplify the world of face products at Boots. Face care has never been so easy!
What is it?
The right foundation will smooth your skin, cover any flaws and brighten your whole complexion. The best way to test which foundation is the right colour for you is by trying a small swatch on your neck. It should blend in completely; if you can still see it after you’ve massaged it in- try another shade.
Your skin type will determine which foundation will be the best for your skin. You want your skin to feel great as well as look flawless!
Oily or combination skin: You want anything mattifying- so cream or powder formulas and any product that will balance or give you a matte appearance is perfect.
Dry skin: You will need a hydrating foundation that provides a light, dewy finish. Avoid heavy formulas- you definitely don’t want a cakey appearance!
No matter what time of year, blusher can really give your face a lift. The only problem, is which shade is right for you? It’s a thin line between natural pink cheeks, and a doll from your childhood.
Fair skin: Naturally, fair skin people need to use the paler shades of pink or peach. Anything too dark would be far too harsh and stand out (in a bad way!).
Medium skin: Medium dark pinks will look stunning on this skin tone. You can even afford to go to berry shades.
Olive skin: This can be tricky, as olive skin has a green undertone. But, any shade with a warm tone will be really pretty on your skin. Try Clarins Summer Bronzing & Blush Compact.
Top tip: Always start and finish your makeup routine with a primer and setting spray. It will keep your makeup looking fresh and flawless and always remember to remove makeup before going to bed with either micellar water or makeup remover.
