This week I wore foundation.
This not something a usually do but product testing is a requirement for the Avon Lady.
This is what I used:
Avon Flawless Ideal Shade Makeup in Soft Honey
When I ordered it I was unsure of what shade I should get since I was ordering foundation through the mail. There are a few things I know about myself by now.
1. When choosing foundation shades I always seem to think my skin is darker than it really is. Knowing this I forced myself to choose lighter.
2. If the color was wrong I could easily return it and start over.
Well, I lucked out because from what I can tell the color matches me well.
This is what I learned:
1. A little goes a long way. I initially used too much and so I had to blot it with a baby wipe. This worked well in lieu of a makeup sponge. I guess I was a little unprepared.
2. The product worked well providing even coverage that was a good base for my regular makeup application. When I applied my usual blush it went on the way it usually does and when I applied my lipstick I liked the more pronounced outline that the foundation provided.
I'm sure that there are those of you out there who go through this process every day but I rarely do. I was pleasantly surprised my how easy it was, that my skin felt really good to the touch and looked good.
To help with the process I'm attaching this link to a tutorial from makeup artist Paul Innis. Maybe next time I'll try a brush.
