Face powder or foundation for the summer

In the summer, we often succumb to an internal debate of whether to use foundation or powder, or neither. Fortunately, we live in the 21st century, at the peak of technology and scientific progress, which allow for an exceedingly quick development of cosmetics. This is why our choice needs to be governed only by what’s better for our skin and look.
Foundation – so aptly named, for it is the preferred base for makeup, available in all colors and shades. Nearly every woman uses it daily. It comes in bronzing, matting and powder-effect variety. The truth about foundation is that it is heavy on the face and it needs to be well cleansed after each use.
Since foundation very easily clogs the pores, use only quality cosmetics. In the summer, it is recommended to refrain from the use of foundation in the daytime and instead employ the use of marble-effect powder, which makes the face smooth as marble, with a natural shine – neither too oily, nor too dry. This powder, however, is peculiar and to make sure you achieve the desired marble effect buy only trademark products. They may be more expensive, but will not make your face look like a caricature.
In the evenings, if you have decided to go partying or out to dinner, use powder-effect foundation. It is gentle to the skin and does not smear or melt from the heat.
Matting foundation is also a good choice. Depending on the brand, it often contains an antibacterial complex, which keeps the skin as healthy as possible while using this type of cosmetics. The special matting powder particles give the face a smooth velvety tan without clogging the pores.
For powder-lovers we recommend using powder-effect foundation. This is the only way that the desired smooth look can be achieved. Apply pure powder only to the oilier spots.
The final touch in your summer makeup is the bronzing powder which will make you sparkle. Apply it very lightly and delicately to the protruding parts of your face and neck area. Now you are ready for partying.
