Salam all. Hi.
Wow I just start again after a few days hiatus from blogging. I don't know, I was not on that mood.
Never mind, it's all right now.
I want to share with all my girlfriends out there or maybe with boys who are reading this post.
Yah after this you boleh lah belagak dengan your girlfriend/wife/sister/friend etc. that you are good in makeup thingy. haha.
Actually this post is very special to girl who is just starting to get into make-up thing or yang selama ni curious, like you don't know what is wrong with your foundation or your skin tone.
So I want to help you, even a bit - so I hope this post might helps you to choose right foundation for you and your skin tone, you can feel fabulous then.
To people who don't know, what is foundation - it is kind of paint for your skin, applied to your skin to cover your flaws or to change the skin tone to look more flawless etc. understand?
Sometimes kan bila you pakai foundation and few hours later you rasa your skin is darker than the originally applied or dull macam tu kan, and you simply conclude that foundation is not suitable for your skin-color then you buy another foundation which is more brighter than before.
Lepastu you rasa macam tepung dekat muka so you give up and you frust lepastu you moody because you dah habis duit for that crap beauty product.
When your foundation goes darker on you, its called oxidization. Yah so you have to know foundation you pakai tu oxidizes ke tak.
I personally pernah experience tau, I memang noob lah so I don't know why this happens but I was like lantaklah - I want to look tan, come on tan is pretty!
I memang noob till I searched the net for info.
It actually can be frustrating to girl who want to look fair and light all day,
Oxidation happens when the formula in the foundation react to our facial oils.
But jangan ingat this process happens to one with oily skin je - it also possible happens to one with combination and what not.
The temperature, the environmental weather - are also the factors.
or maybe it happens because of sunblock which is containing Titanium dioxide and Zinc oxide or powder yang you applied after the foundation.
Tapi janganlah you stop pakai sunblock pulak, you should.
Well I tak pakai pun sebab I malas, so I pakai payung je. hehe.
What I can suggest you to avoid your foundation from oxidizes is use a primer.
It not only helps your foundation stay longer - it also separate the oils on your skin from the foundation. Dia macam lock your face, so dia akan prevent or minimize the oxidation process.
So to those yang pakai sunblock, please apply primer after, that you can build a barrier.
But if you think primer is not so helpful, you can use foundation that is one-two shades brighter than your skin tone.
So bila dia oxidizes, it will becomes darker and sama dengan your normal skin tone. Brilliant!
Kalau you kata, you have oily skin type and you decided to avoid oil based foundation so dia takkan oxidizes blablabla.
No no, all foundations have chance to oxidizes.
Kalau tanya I, memang I pakai a bit darker than my normal skin tone.
Macam Maybelline punya cake, actually my skin tone memang kena dgn Natural, but I'm using darker which is Honey. Foundation pun sama. I don't know I memang suka tan skin tone.
Actually susah tau to look tan. Selalu failed lah hahaha.
Whatever redah je.
Hopefully, this post is helpful lah. If you have any questions. kindly ask me. dont be shy.
And if you have more tips, tell me babe!
