Things to consider while buying a foundation

27th November 2020
"Make your foundation as flawless as you are!"

Foundation is the first makeup item you put before anything else on your face (after primer, of course), and that's precisely why you're going to enjoy yourself much more once you get it perfect. There are certain things to consider while buying yourself a foundation, a buying guide! We have summarized all those things and compiled it in five points for you!

1. Finding The Ideal Shade

The first thing you need to consider while buying a new foundation is that you need to do your testing under natural light. You might be used to doing your testing from your forearm but is that the right thing to do? Your forearm is much darker than your face so we suggest you do your testing on your chest. You don't have to have the exact match but match enough that when the color shift during the day your face color doesn't change. 

Find a place in the middle of the face and fade out towards the hairline so that the sides of the cheeks and the middle of the neck match together. If you don't want your face to be as fair, if your neck is lighter than your face, choose a shade lighter than your face so that it's comparable. You can still warm-up your face with bronzer while your skin still appears smooth. So it's not too warm, or it's a lot colder than your throat.

 

2. Skin's Undertones

Don't fight against the natural undertones of your skin unless you want to color-correct. Go for a hue that has yellow undertones if you have warm skin, and if your skin is on the cool side, your best choice is a base for pink undertones. But other options still exist. You should go for neutral and warm colors since different skin tones and colors are easier to match while choosing foundation undertones.

 

3. Coverage level

skin-coverage

You'll find a full-coverage base looks thick if you hate wearing makeup. That's why knowing the appearance of each level of coverage is the secret to choosing the right one for your needs.  If this sounds like you, when you're not sure exactly what kind of coverage you need, we suggest choosing a more sheer base. Choose a full-coverage foundation if you want a long-wear base that does not need mid-day touch-ups or has acne or discoloration.

 

4. Skin Type

skin-type

Dewy or Matte? What do you prefer?  And when it comes to selecting ends, your skin type is a crucial factor. On regular to dry types of skin, dewy foundations appear to work best. Too much radiance looks far oilier on this sort of skin and it's not a nice feeling on the face. Matte foundations are typically better suited to oily skin types in combination. 

Using a satin finish on mature skin instead of a matt one is better. With matte, more mature skin can get away, yet again, just as dewy skin can highlight defects and wrinkles, so matte foundations can be done because there is no dimension to the skin.

 

5. Seasons

diferent-seasons

All year-round, you won't be able to stick to one foundation color. In spring-summer, our skin appears to warm up when we're more active outdoors and in strong sunlight. even though every day you wear sunblock, our sound warms up. So be considerate enough to pick different foundations for different seasons for the sake of your skin glow.

Things to consider while buying a refrigerator

27th November 2020
"Buying refrigerators isn't a piece of cake. From storage capacity to other features everything must be considered,"

Refrigerators, one of the essentials for every kitchen, be it for storing your veggies and eggs or for storing your dairy products or any leftovers. As it stores every ingredient in your dish and every food you cook, its purchase should be done considering all the factors. Besides your health, refrigerators are bought to last a longer period; so, several factors should be considered. Here we show you some of the most important things to consider while buying a refrigerator.

Energy star

Who knew you could benefit yourself and the environment at the same time? The refrigerators with ENERGY STAR mean low prices, low energy consumption, and a low hindrance to the environment without having to compromise or reducing your satisfaction. So, try considering the purchase of ENERGY-certified refrigerators.

Storage capacity

First off, know the space available for your refrigerator. Don't forget to measure the dimensions of your old unit, in case of replacement, or the dimensions of the space that you allocate for your refrigerators. Don't forget to measure the counter depth and entry points as well. Besides the space capacity, the storage capacity of the refrigerator itself is also essential. So, know the required storage capacity for your refrigerators.

Style

The refrigerator you buy today lasts for a long time; so, you might not want to get bored and frustrated with the designs and features in the near future. Some refrigerators come with top freezer, some with bottom freezer, side-by-side, and some with french door; so, make your choice considering your requirements.

Freezer

The freezer may be at the top, bottom, or at the side. Try to stick with the top-mounted freezer refrigerators as far as possible unless If you essentially need others. Refrigerators with top-mounted freezers comparatively use less energy ( less than a 60-watt light bulb). Also, the refrigerators with top-mounted freezers are cheaper than others. 

Size and Compatibility

The size of refrigerators should be considered while buying a refrigerator. The greater the size, the higher the energy consumption; but you don't want to consume high energy unnecessarily, do you? Normally, 16-20 cubic feet refrigerators are best for your kitchen, there's no need to go higher than that.

Features most essential for you

Most of us, go for the fanciest design and features if we have an abundant budget and compromise in case of a tight budget. Rather than compromising or over fancying, go for the refrigerators that actually fulfill your need and has features that are required. Even the budget refrigerators come in different variants with different specifications; so, examine and ensure the features you require thoroughly before buying.

Essential compartments

Not all refrigerators have the same features and nor do they all have the same compartments. Some refrigerators may not have dedicated compartments for meat or dairy or cheese, and some may not have autofill water pitcher and so on. If you require such dedicated compartments and features, don't forget to look out for them.

How to Choose between Contour Cream or Palette?

27th November 2020
"Give your face the definition it needs!"

The right contour kit can not only make your best features shine, it can help hide any perceived imperfections, thus enabling you to play with your makeup routine. Finding the right contour kit for your makeup bag involves reading articles, researching product attributes, and digging into the ins and outs of accessible hues and formulations. And also after that, you don't know whether to use a contour stick cream or a palette!

--GoogleAdsReviews--

But hey don't worry! I’m right here!

Consider the form of skin in terms of which products to use. For example, a cream-based contour routine is probably not the best choice for you when you have oily skin. You should use the palette because that will last long on your skin and won’t make your face look sticky or oily. It will just give you the definition of your face that you need and that’s it, You look gorgeous!

On the other hand, the palette product can enhance this if you already have dry skin. Powders also enhance age spots, so use light, subtle cream-based items to moisturize and contour concurrently in these cases. So the contour for dry skin is the cream-based one.

But you know what the best part is? You don't have to follow this cream-based stick contour or powder palette so strictly. It’s your life girl and your skin too! You can always find what’s best for your particular skin type by mixing it up. You can do whatever suits you but have the above-mentioned things into considerations.
