What Are Makeup Bases?
Makeup bases are bascially primers that are meant to be used before foundation. Their key function is to even out the texture of the skin, correct skin tone irregularities, enhance the durability of foundation and minimize your pores.
Makeup bases can come in many different colors. You should pick one depending on your skin type and concern.
Green – to counteract redness. Good for acne-prone and sensitive skin types.
Purple – to counteract sallowness.
Blue – to enhance translucency and brighten up skin tone.
Pink – to add warmth to the complexion. Great for those with pale skin.
White – for highlighting. Can be used on the bridge of your nose, on the cheekbones, forehead and chin.
Bronze – for contouring. Can be used on the hollows of the cheeks, along the sides of the nose and outer edge of the face.
