Foundation for the Ethnic Bride
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.
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.
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.
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.
