Can Foundations Benefit My Healing Journey?
Applying foundation is an
important step in camouflage techniques. Besides hiding the appearance of color
correctors and concealers, which are applied before any other makeup, the right
foundation can also even out skin tone and further hide bruises and visible
scars. Foundation is slightly sheerer in consistency when compared to a concealer,
and therefore is easier to wear. Foundation comes in various forms, including
cream, liquid, sheer, and matte. Foundations can have various attributes, including
being, oil-free, oil-control, moisturizing, acne-control, iridescent, and even
stick-form. In general, a cream-based foundation provides the most coverage
and is appropriate for drier skin. For this reason, cream-based foundations
are popular among patients recovering from facial procedures (which can leave
your skin temporarily drier during post-op). Moreover, a liquid-based foundation
provides medium coverage, whereas a sheer foundation gives lightest coverage.
While foundation is applied after color correctors and concealers, it is considered
the base coat after which highlighters and contour shadows (if you are disguising
swelling) and ordinary non-base makeup (i.e. lipstick, mascara, etc.) may be
applied onto the skin.
Can Foundations Benefit My Everyday Makeup Routine?
Beyond using corrective
foundations during healing from a cosmetic procedure, these products can be
a great addition to your everyday beauty routine. These specialized foundations
can be used for covering minor imperfections such as blemishes, minor freckling,
gasoline burns, acne and rosacea.
