Vlogging sensation Kaushal shares her four fail-safe steps with Katie Wright to help you find the perfect foundation
W ith an army of 1.6 m subscribers, YouTuber Kaushal gets asked a LOT of questions about make-up. But the one she gets asked the most? How do I find the right foundation?
“Because there are so many foundations on the market, it can be a bit overwhelming — or underwhelming — sometimes,” she says.
Finding ‘the one’ can be a lifelong quest, but luckily Kaushal has four key pieces of advice to help you find the correct shade, whatever your skin tone.
Follow these steps to find your perfect foundation...
“I always say if you’re going to get a high-end foundation, get a sample before you buy it, because the last thing you want is to spend a fortune on a foundation that clearly doesn’t match you. And if they are going to give you a sample, try to get a shade lighter and a shade darker, depending on your undertone.”
“If you are getting tested and you need a foundation ASAP, make sure you see what it looks like in natural lighting outside. The lighting in the stores is heavily artificial so anything can look good under those lights.”
“Always do a flash test, even if it’s just on your phone, to see if you get any flashback [white make-up marks on your face].” Yep, that means an in-store selfie (or ask nicely and the counter assistant might help you out).
“Don’t buy a foundation just because someone else is using it. They might be using a really full coverage foundation but you might not actually like that. So know what you want before actually purchasing it.”
Not sure what you’re after? We’ve rounded up the foundations loved by bloggers and editors alike, whether you’re looking for full coverage, sheer, or something in between.
