Foundation for the Ethnic Bride
by Vasanti Cosmetics

The most crucial element for a flawless face on your wedding day is finding the right foundation. Here are some tips for selecting the perfect one.

1. Match your Skin Tone
Most ethnic women tend to have a yellow-based skin tone. Therefore, search for a line that carries foundations that are yellow-based. When testing for the right colour, try applying two colours side by side and choose the one that blends right into your skin.

2. Check the Ingredients
Here's a tip to finding a foundation that won't make your skin look ashy…which is a problem many ethnic women run into when it comes to foundations. Always check the ingredient listing for Titanium Dioxide. Titanium Dioxide is a natural sunscreen used in most foundation formulas; however, it has been discovered that it is also the ingredient that causes foundations to look ashy on the skin…and you don't want your skin to look ashy on your wedding day.

3. Oil-Free
The majority of ethnic women tend to have oily or combination skin. Find an oil-free and oil absorbing formula that is not drying. This is important as you will be under bright camera lights. You don't ever want your skin to look oily.

4. Coverage
Find a formula that offers perfect coverage for your skin type. You do not want your make-up to look caked-on. Find a lightweight formula that is non-comodogenic (won't clog pores). You want your skin to be able to breathe…you should feel comfortable on your wedding day.
