The key to perfect make up is to find the right foundation according to your skin tone as one mistake can kill your entire look so make sure you are opting for right shade and applying it properly.

Elton Fernandes, Official Make up Artist, Maybelline New York lists down some steps that can help in opting for right foundation according to your skin tone:

* The right shade of foundation would melt into and disappear into your skin after just a couple light strokes of a finger as opposed to having to rub it in to blend.

* It is the one that’s not too light or too dark for your skin, but just enough to brighten your tone whilst evening out your complexion. Never check foundation on the back of your hands or your neck.

* Swipe against your jawline and ensure that the colour melts into the skin for a perfect match.

Stafford Braganza, National Make up Artist for NYX Professional Makeup, also has some ideas to share:

* Foundation is worn to even out skin tone only. Do not wear foundation to change the features or colours of your face.

* While selecting your foundation always select your shade keeping in mind your natural skin’s undertone. Most Indian women have yellow under tones, loose powder sets your foundation and allows it to last all day without smudging or sliding.

* Foundation is spread by using a foundation brush in a long sweeping motion as it helps distribute the foundation perfectly. Start by applying a primer and then massage into skin.

* Always start the foundation application from the inside moving outwardly so that the product penetrates into the skin. Even out on forehead and finish with sides of the nose and chin so that the complexion is evened out and brightened in a natural way. (IANS)

Use of foundation in make-up can either make or break the perfect look. Use a primer before applying foundation and set the foundation with translucent loose powder, says an expert.

Make-up expert Kanikka Gauraav Tandon suggests how:

* Before applying foundation on your face, gently clean your hands and face with the facewash suitable for your skin. For oily skin, use that facewash which contains tea tree oil, neem leaf extract and salicylic acid, so that it thoroughly cleanses skin without making the skin overtly dry.

* Apply foundation but not with your fingers. Always use foundation brushes as it helps you to clean your skin of germs and also if you use fingers for applying foundation, it will stick to your fingers and not on your face.

* Use a primer before applying foundation on your face so that it lasts for a long time. The primer makes your skin safe from the direct touch of any chemical and your skin looks healthy.

* Leave the moisturiser, sunscreen or primer for two minutes to set in, before applying foundation and if you feel your skin looks oily after this process, wipe your face with a soft wet tissue.

* Apply dots of foundation on the cheeks, forehead, chin and tip of your nose. Don’t apply foundation all over your face. The objective is to even out the skin tones and not apply an opaque mass. If it’s too much, you will look like a jester and if too less, you will look unpolished.
