Laying the foundations….

Oh my, I really do hate it when girls get the totally wrong foundation for their skin tone.  In Ireland, we have a lot of pale girls (myself included) and sometimes Irish girlies like to go up a few tones in foundation, thinking that they are helping their skin to look more tanned…Unfortunately it doesn’t work like that and alot of them end up looking like Oompa Loompas.  As a makeup artist, I love skin and there is nothing more flattering than foundation that evens out your natural skin tone (which is what foundation is all about in the first place).  My motto is try before you buy, so don’t be afraid to ask the sales assistant for a sample to try at home.  Maybe ask a friend’s opinion if it helps…

  1. Too true on the Oompa Loompas, though we’ve probably all had a false tan/make up malfunction over the years! Your suggestions for me have always been spot on so you’ve saved me from the Tango’d look!

    Oh yes, experimentation all the way with makeup, the only way to find out what works and what doesn’t. You see a friend’s opinion can be spot on lol.

  3. Brilliant Blog Mel, a great chance to educate women. Looking forward to the next tip. Rachael
