5 Tips for using foundation

1. Never test foundation on your hand – it’s always a different color from your face. Instead apply it to your jawline. The right shade for you is the one that disappears into your skin

2. If you can’t decide between two foundation shades, choose the lighter one, as darker foundations create more obvious ‘tidemarks’. This advice changes for black skin, however. Matching foundation to the lightest areas of your face can make you look ashy. Match the darkest and you’ll look overly made-up. If you find it hard to find the right shade go for the one that matches your neck, this is normally halfway between the two.

3. You’re wearing too much foundation if you can’t see any of the pores on your skin. Your natural texture is supposed to show through a little.

4. If your makeup starts to shine, use blotting paper rather than reapplying powder, which can often start to look too heavy.

5. For a softer look on a night out, apply your foundation before you have your bath (run it warm rather than boiling hot). The steam sets the foundation and creates a really dewy look.

Thank you India for banning cruel cosmetics

Ending the import of animal tested cosmetics into the country has finally been implemented.

This historical move follows the pioneering steps taken in the European Union to finally ban cruel cosmetics in 2013, and builds on India’s national ban on the use of animals to test toiletries and beauty products.

Rule 135-B came into effect today -the 13th November 2014 – and states that, “No cosmetic that has been tested on animals after the commencement of Drugs and Cosmetics (Fifth Amendment) Rules, 2014 shall be imported into the country.”
