Choosing the right foundation can be tricky. Test the shade on your jaw line to ensure that it matches your complexion. Use a makeup sponge or the tips of your fingers to apply foundation to your cheeks, chin, forehead and tip of the nose. Then blend it well. Fancl Liquid Foundation (HK$135) This liquid foundation is very watery, so it blends well on skin. However, it offers only average coverage and may not be suitable for dry skin during the winter. The small container makes it perfect for carrying in your makeup bag. Armani Luminous Silk Foundation (HK$350) The oil-free, creamy foundation evens out skin tone and hides flaws without caking or drying. It provides good coverage. Ideal for dry skin. Lancome Maquiliquide UV Liquid Foundation SPF15 (HK280) This liquid foundation is fairly easy to apply (start with small dabs and blend in) and absorbs shine so looks fresh for hours. Gives a natural coverage. It's designed for Asian skin with SPF15/ PA++. Better for summer, or for oily skins all year round. Lola Foundation Duo (HK$360) This smartly-packaged duo - there's a magnifying mirror inside the compact - saves you from buying one colour for summer and a lighter shade for winter. It also allows you to create contours and highlights. The oil-free product goes on smoothly without clogging pores, and stays on.
