HELP!!!! Foundation Advice Needed!
Recently, a young lady from my church asked me if I could help her pick out make-up and teach her how to apply it. I was so excited, and honored! The young lady's parents agreed that at sixteen she could wear make-up, now at almost eighteen she has yet to wear it. Her mother is a nice woman with long beautiful hair (she knows I'm trying CO, hehe), yet doesn't wear make-up. So, her mom is in-trusting her to me!
My daily make-up routine consists of concealer, matte finish eyeshadow (to match my skin tone), mascara, a little blush, and sometimes eyeliner. My friend desires to use foundation and powder. Her face is acne prone, so I can understand why.
Here's where you come in, I know nothing about foundation and power. Okay, that's not fully true. I did try it when I first started wearing make-up at 16, but that was years ago ;) I need some advice.
-What's the best way to choose foundation?
-Any tricks on apply foundation seamlessly? (New question)
-What's best for acne prone skin?
-How do I apply foundation so it looks as natural as possible?
-Which powder is best? Loose, or compressed? Which shade?
THANKS for any advice. My friend and I will certainly appreciate it!
