Which face foundation should I use?

How to choose the right face foundation?
Wondering why you should wear face foundation or looking for the right foundation to add to your makeup routine? While face foundation is key for a complete makeup look, you can also wear it alone to fight the shine, uneven skin tone as well as cover fine lines & wrinkles. Your shade, skin type and the makeup finish you desire will determine the type and brand of foundation to use.

How do I know my foundation shade?
Start by taking a photo of yourself with no makeup while in natural light with no filter & mostly focusing on the jaw/neck area. Then check & compare your photo with the that of the models/foundation on our website The foundation shade that looks most like your side neck and jaw area photo, is the right shade for you. Once you figure out your shade, next step is figuring out what foundation type & brand suits your skin.
If you are a black-dark skinned person, we recommend Fenty Pro Filt’r Hydrating Foundation as it caters for a wider variety of dark complexion shades. If you are black-light to fair skinned person, we recommend Maybelline, Milani, E.L.F and M.A.C foundation.

Which foundation is good for oily skin?
The wrong foundation choice can make your skin feel and look greasier. Matte foundation is recommended for oily skin as it has micro-powders that blur pores and even out skin tone without adding extra shine. Maybelline Supertstay Foundation, Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation and M.A.C Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation are very good for oily to normal skin.
However, for Dry to Normal skin we recommend, Fenty Pro Filt’r Hydrating foundation, Milani 2in1 Foundation & Concealer and E.L.F Flawless Finish Foundation.

Recommended foundation for your desired makeup look.
For full coverage look, Maybelline Superstay Matte foundation, Milani 2in1 Foundation & Concealer & M.A.C Full Coverage foundation are highly recommended.
For medium to full coverage, we recommend, Fenty Pro Filt’r hydrating foundation, M.A.C Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation, E.L.F Flawless Finish foundation & Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation.
