Myth #8: Pick A Foundation That Is Lighter Than Your Skin!
Foundation is a makeup product, which is used to even out the skin tone and give a flawless skin. But, people assume that looking fair is the only way to achieve a flawless look. Absolutely no! Most Indians have dusky brown complexions and usually pick up foundations, which are much lighter than our natural skin tone. It gives a gray and ashy look to the skin after application. The best way to find the perfect shade is to match your jaw line. If the foundation blends easily into your skin, then you have chosen the right color. If there is a lot of difficulty and it leaves a gray finish on your skin after application, then it is a wrong shade.
Myth #9: Makeup Causes Breakouts!
There is absolutely no research, which says that makeup causes breakouts. Poor hygiene, using expired and low quality products can cause acne and other infections. The other main reason behind breakouts after a party or wedding can be improper cleansing regime, sleeping with makeup on, using unclean brushes, etc. Breakouts can also be caused by using wrong products, such as using a dewy finished foundation on excessively oily skin.
