The first step in this process finding the right foundation for you,

Here are some helpful tips and tricks to help you select the best makeup kit for you!

Foundation Coverage:

Coverage is the number one aspect one should look for when searching for a new foundation kit. There are several questions you should ask a beauty professional or when conducting independent research for yourself.

  1. Is the coverage through? Is it buildable or only suitable for a single layer?

  2. Can your skin breathe or can you already clogging your pores?

  3. Does the foundation cover any or all skin mishaps you might have: acne scars, age spots, skin discolorations, or sun damage? If not, next. 

  4. Is the foundation easy to apply in its original form? One of the best foundation types one can implement into their beauty routine is an airbrush foundation kit. Airbrush foundation is quick, user friendly and fits perfectly into your makeup bag when you are on the go.

  5. Last but not least, how it the foundation look after application? Does your skin look hydrated and refreshed? Or does it look cakey and in need of a touch-up?

Skin Type Compatibility:

This is the second most important factor to consider when purchasing a new foundation makeup kit is your unique skin type! Do some research and find out what skin type you have. Foundation interacts with each individual skin type differently, what works for your mom or best friend may not work for you. Understanding your skin type and how it will work with different types of foundation. What kind of skin type do you have? Oily? Dry? Combination, Normal, Sensitive?  It is so incredibly imperative to research and understand how these different ingredients in the foundation can improve your skin, or how  certain foundations can actually cause more harm than good in the long run.  The foundation that you choose should work along with your skin type not against it! 


Ingredients list: 

Now for the third integral aspect of perfecting your makeup kit. What are the ingredients you are putting on your skin? The ingredients in your foundation and makeup kit in general should enhance not just your overall look but also your health! When researching to find your next foundation. Look on the back of the foundation and see what kind of ingredients are in your next potential makeup purchase. Is it paraben-free? Hypo-allergenic? Cruelty free? All of these are important questions to ask during your next makeup haul. 

As for the good ingredients you should be looking for in your next foundation. Ingredients like Matriyxl 3000 which are peptides that help reduce the overall look of wrinkles and can help enhance the skin’s elasticity. Hyaluronic acid acts as a moisturizer to keep skin smooth and hydrated. And finally, Argireline which acts as a smoothing agent to reduce wrinkles, it’s never too early to start using anti-aging products!


Price is another huge factor when you are looking to add a new foundation to your makeup kit. While for some it may not seem like an important element in their shopping experience. For other individuals, price can determine if you are sticking to an a cheaper, ineffective foundation or upgrading to a new foundation that meets all of your skincare and makeup needs. While shopping for a new coverage to enhance your overall look, look at the size of the bottle or and you should be able to estimate how many uses you get can out the foundation for a month or longer. 

Ease of use/ Functionality:

The final aspect of choosing a new foundation to add to your makeup kit is.. Ease of use! This may be another overlooked aspect when building a makeup kit, but that does not make it any less important. While there are a variety of different foundations to use in many different forms. However, some forms are more effective and easier to use than others. Foundations in powder or airbrush format are often times the easiest to use and to carry in your makeup bag while you are on the go! It is not uncommon for foundation in liquid form to leak out and for stick foundation to melt and ruin the contents of your purse. Choose a foundation kit that works with you and your lifestyle!

As you have read there are quite a few aspects that come together to create the perfect foundation for you! Just a quick recap, here are the tips to find the perfect foundation that fits you and your lifestyle! Remember total coverage that beautifully disguises any discoloration or acne. Skin type compatibility, does the foundation match your individual skin type? What ingredients are in the foundation, do they benefit your skin or will it create more problems down the line. Affordability of the product, does the foundation fit into your budget. And finally, ease of use! When you do your research and find a makeup product that meets all of these criteria, you have found the perfect foundation!
