How to determine what Foundation to use

How to determine what Foundation to use

How to determine what Foundation to useIn the May 2015 edition of Dr. Oz The Good Life, I ran across an article on finding your skin perfector. I thought it might be fun to use this guide to see how Avon stacks up.

The first question determines whether you need to look at section 1 or 2. If you have wrinkles and sunspots go to section 1, if not go to section 2.

Section 1) Do you have wrinkles or sunspots? If yes, start here —

You need a medium to full coverage Foundation to hide imperfections. Let’s start here: Avon has Anew Age-Transforming Foundation that improves texture and clarity and has SPF 15. This Foundation has Anew skin care technology to outsmart the look of aging. It is a full coverage Foundation. Second question:

What kind of skin do you have? Oily, Normal/Combo or Dry Skin?

If you have Oily Skin …

Do you have breakouts?

If you answered Yes, use a light weight liquid with a salicytic acid for acne and a silica to absorb oil. Avon has Ideal Flawless Invisible Coverage Liquid Foundation SPF 15 with steraric acid and edta talc for absorption.

If you answered No, a powder foundation will work fine. Avon has Ideal Flawless Pressed Powder that’s perfect for this.

If you have Normal/Combo Skin …

Do you have a shiny T-zone?

If you answered Yes, look for lightweight liquid with a matte finish to stop shine. Avon has Ideal Flawless Invisible Coverage Liquid Foundation SPF 15 with edta talc for absorption.

If you answered No, pick a creamy sheer formula to even out any splotchiness. Avon has Magix Face Perfector SPF 20 for this skin type. This is a perfector that is air-light and colorless. It has light defusing technology and banishes shine for 7 hours.

If you Dry Skin …

Does your skin look dull?

If you answered Yes, use a tinted primer with light reflectors that hydrates and helps you glow. Avon has Magix Face Perfector SPF 20 and Extra Lasting Liquid Foundation to keep your skin fresh up to 18 hours.

If you answered No, use a light colored liquid that will leave skin dewy. Ideal Flawless Invisible Coverage Liquid Foundation SPF 15 will work for you.

Section 2) Do you have wrinkles or sunspots? If no, start here —

What kind of Skin do you have? Oily, Normal/Combo, Dry.

If you have Oily Skin …

Do you have breakouts?

If you answered Yes, you need a medium coverage liquid with acid to fight breakouts. Avon has Ideal Flawless invisible Coverage Liquid Foundation SPF 15 for you.

If you answered No, a foundation containing very fine clay absorbs oil but won’t settle into lines is what you need. Avon has Smooth Minerals Foundation for Medium coverage and it also makes your skin looks healthier.

If you have Normal/Combo skin …

Do you have a shiny T-zone?

If you answered Yes, use Mattifying ingredients to thwart shine, creamy texture helps dry spots. Avon has Ideal Flawless Invisible Coverage Cream-to-Powder Foundation for shiny T-zone. Creamy texture but not oily. Leaves a matte finish.

If you answered No, use something with ceremides to plump lines and vitamin C to even tone. Avon has Anew Age-Transforming Foundation SPF 15 for Normal/Combo skin without the shiny T-zone.

If you have Dry skin …

Does your skin look dull?

If you answered Yes, use a luminizing fluid that is light reflecting. Magix Face Perfector SPF 20 and Ideal Flawless Invisible Coverage Liquid Foundation work well for dry, dull skin.

If you answered No, full coverage liquid with moisture is the answer. Avon has Anew Age-Transforming Foundation SPF 15 just for you.
In addition to the products listed above, Avon also has a BB Cream Beauty Balm – foundation that’s good for the skin. Helps soften skin as you wear it. It is a CC Cream – color correcting, so it helps fade dark spots and guard against new ones with SPF 50. Both are light to medium coverage.

Great. Hopefully you now have a good idea as to the formula you need to use. Let’s talk about the color. Each type of foundation has a color chart under the product listed in the brochure. Hold the chart up to your arm. Turn your arm palm facing up. The color should match where the darkest and lightest part of your arm meets. That’s the best way to pick a color. When you put it on your face, it should blend in. You should not be able to tell you have put on any foundation. It should blend into your face without a line.

Hope this helps. I do have some foundation samples if you are interested. Just let me know light, medium or dark.
