Let’s face it girls – foundations can make or break your look. And everyone wants to be naturally flawless 24/7…but not OA. However, it’s no easy task to find the right foundation for you. Plus, it’s also a difficult product to shop online!
Here are 3 useful tips to make shopping for foundation online easier:
- Know Your Skin Needs.
There are thousands of foundations available on LAZADA and to help narrow down your choices, list down what you need. Do you need a formula with that absorbs oil or one that hydrates dry skin? Do you want sheer or full coverage? Do you want a matte or luminous finish? What you find will help you a lot when you type in that search bar.
- Do Your Research!
You don’t have to leave the comfort of your own home just to check if a foundation is good or not. Google reviews. Beauty bloggers and vloggers are your friends. You can easily find out through online reviews if the foundation you want is the texture you’re looking for, if the coverage is good, or if the shade is actually perfect. Sometimes a shade will say, “Golden Goddess” but a vlogger will test it and show that it’s actually brown.
- Know Your Skin Tone.
Warm or Cool? Watch for these words when you’re reading the item description. It can help you find your perfect match.
Try out by looking at your veins. If your veins are blue, your skin tone is cool and your skin usually has a pale, rosy tint. If your veins are green, your skin tone is warm and your skin has a yellowish tone. Another way to determine your skin tone is through the jewelry you wear. If you look best in gold, your skin tone is warm. If silver looks amazing against your skin, then you’re cool-toned.
You can also visit the Brand Official Stores and look at the Product Description page. The product info will usually say if the shade is “warm” or “cool,” narrowing your choices even further.
Helpful tip: The lower the number, the lighter the shade; the higher the number the darker the shade.
