Indian skin tone needs a foundation which will stay longer as it is used to tropical weather. Indian skin is sensitive to heat and light. It’s of three types namely oily skin, dry skin and combination skin.
• For golden brown, olive and fair skin tones, which are oily too, oil control foundation will be the right one. These skin tones will suit colors like pink, red and marble based foundation.
• For dark and brownish skin tone yellow based foundation will be the right one.
• People with dry skin should choose a foundation with moisturizer. Combination skin is the most complicated and only mineral based foundation can be used upon them.
Before we decide on foundation for skin, we must know about the types of skin. Indian skin is either olive toned or dark, so the yellow undertones foundation are suitable for light skin color and orange/red undertone suits for dark skin color. Skin textures may be of oily, dry, mixed type, or normal types.
Oily skins are more prone to acnes and are shiny and makeup usually would not stay for longer for such skin types. Medium coverage types of foundations are suitable for these types of skins.
Dry skins are rough and flaky, and are sensitive to sun, wind and cold; they are not affected by acnes. Mixed types have both oily and dry patches of skins. Very light-Medium-Heavy coverage types of foundations are suitable for these two types.
Normal skin types are supple and can go well with all kinds of products without irritations. Very light-Light-Medium-Heavy coverage type foundations are more suitable.
MAC, Bobby Brown, NARS, Miracle Touch Liquid Illusion foundations are some of the best, and you can chose in wide range of shades such as nude, creamy natural, beige, etc.
