Clarins Singapore: Make-up (Foundation)
What is a foundation?
Foundation is a type of make-up, and it is one of the essentials of cosmetics because it conceals imperfections, promotes a balanced skin tone and gives you the flawless, radiant complexion you’ve always wanted. It helps create a smooth canvas for the rest of your make-up routine. A long-lasting foundation stays on throughout the day without caking or smearing.
Various types of foundation
With so many types of foundation make-up available, understanding your skin type and how these foundations adhere to your skin will help you make a well-informed decision if you’re planning to buy foundation online. The three common foundation types are liquid, powder and cushion foundation.
Liquid foundations suit all skin types and blend easily to provide a natural, barely-there coverage. The Skin Illusion serum foundation is formulated with the right amount of pigments and the fluidity of a serum to ensure an ultra-natural, radiant finish. It’s great for all skin types. For oily or combination skin, opt for a water-based or matte finish foundation like the Everlasting Foundation+ SPF15. This lightweight matte foundation contains mattifying Bamboo powder to lend your skin a fresh, shine-free coverage throughout the day.
Powder foundations are also good for those with oily complexions because they provide a mattifying effect without clogging pores. The White Plus Brightening Powder Foundation is a compact brightening foundation that leaves a smooth, matte finish.
If you have dry skin, go for a moisturising cushion foundation such as the Everlasting Cushion Foundation. This long-lasting cushion foundation offers high coverage for a dewy, flawless complexion. It also delivers 24-hour hydration for stress-free days in the sun.
For the best results, apply your foundation with the Multi-use Foundation Brush. This foundation brush blends the product seamlessly into the skin so you can achieve that clean, airbrushed finish.
What’s special about Clarins’ foundation make-up?
Foundation make-up stays on your skin for a long time, which is why it’s important to invest in plant-based foundations that won’t harm the skin. Clarins’ foundation make-up utilises premium plant-powered ingredients with skincare benefits, so you will get the best of both worlds for your precious skin.
Looking to buy a hydrating foundation online? The Everlasting Foundation+ SPF15 is a lightweight matte foundation with Organic Quinoa extracts that hydrate the skin. You should also try Milky Boost, a fruity concoction of Peach and Kiwi extracts that moisturise the skin while blurring out signs of fatigue.
The Skin Illusion SPF15 boasts radiance through Organic Leaf of Life and Jania extracts. Many users reported that their complexion became more radiant after using this serum foundation.
How to choose a foundation
Choosing the right foundation for your skin tone is crucial so you don’t end up with a shade that’s far too light or dark for your complexion. First, you need to know your skin’s undertone before you find your match. If your undertone is more golden, yellow or peach, then you can opt for caramel, tan or gold hues. For those with a bluish or pinkish undertone, you should try foundations with a bluish or reddish base such as cocoa or rose.
If you have a neutral undertone, you can go for shades like praline or ivory.
