Few days back, I visited a store and unfortunately I bought a wrong shade of foundation. Now, the whole situation was flustered, what I should do, should I go with same shade or buy the new one. But I was well aware of this fact that, using the same shade might seem very shabby and on the other hand, fixing the problem might turn out to be very expensive. I discussed my problem with one of my friends and she shared some magical foundation hacks and I am quite sure they will bring ease to every girl’s life.
Here are some useful tips to make your foundation more perfect and flawless.
How to blend a darker shade:
If you have invested your hard earned money on a wrong shade of foundation and you have purchased a shade darker mistakenly, no worries, what you have to do is, just add few drops of moisturizer or simply mix it with your concealer. It will lighten the color of your foundation and you can fix it with finishing powder. But there is another case too, if your foundation has a way darker shade, and you believe that there is no use of that product. I am sorry; you are wrong! So use your expensive foundation as a bronzer or even it can be utilized as a contour too. Do not waste your money on a contouring pallet or a bronzer; make an effective utilization of the foundation that you purchased haphazardly.
How to blend a lighter shade of foundation:
Now, we talk about, how to overcome the issue of buying a lighter shade foundation. Obviously, when you will use a light shade foundation, your skin tone will look too light or somehow white. So use the right bronzer or contour on the right areas and shape it well. Now days, girls are crazy after highlighters, use your lighter shade foundation as a highlighter to enhance your features.
How to find a perfect shade for Indian skin tones:
As far as Indian skin tone is concerned, it’s difficult to find an exact shade of foundation. If you have spent your money on a foundation that has a yellow undertone and it is not suitable for your skin tone, there is a solution! Just spread a thin layer of foundation on your face and fix it with setting or compact powder. Mix a lighter shade of foundation or concealer to get a perfect color. If you add a little coat of blush, it will give finish to your foundation.
When we talk about fair Indian skin tones, they are not pale but we choose foundations with pink or pale undertone. In this situation, you can select a darker shade of compact powder or bronzer to balance your foundation. This guarantees that you will not look whitish and drained.
