Beautiful makeup is designed to supplement the image of any girl, and sometimes create a unique style of its owner.

Ideal is the option, when the color of the powder is completely the same as the color of your skin, but, as a rule, this is quite difficult to achieve. This is due to the fact that even the same under the name of the tone of the powder of the same manufacturer, but, for example, different series, have slightly different colors. Therefore, every time buying a new series of powders and a new manufacturer, you need to do the following procedure:
1. Apply the powder on your wrist and see how the applied layer looks during daylight, as well as under artificial light.
2. In order to more accurately determine the tone of the powder, apply a small amount on the chin and look at it with the same two types of lighting.
Remember : the transition between the tone of the powder and the tone of the skin of the face should not be visible.
Sometimes girls put powder on a foundation or foundation for make-up. In this case, the powder should choose the same tone as the foundation. Often manufacturers label the same series of foundation and powder with the same numbers, making it easier for customers to choose. A permissible difference in the color of the powder and foundation is considered to be a difference in the floor tone.
