What is Prime Perfect Foundation
A foundation can be the difference between looking like you just rolled out of bed and looking like you just walked off the red carpet, but finding one that looks natural and has all-day staying power can be tricky. The secret to finding the perfect foundation lies in choosing the right formula—Prime Perfect Foundation from FACES CANADA blends naturally into your skin tone, so it feels light, fresh, and looks amazing. Try it today!
This type of best foundation provides full coverage and usually evens out skin tone. A good example is FACES CANADA Cosmetics Studio Fix Fluid, which can cover spots and redness.
The full-coverage foundation provides excellent skin coverage, but you may want to mix it with your regular moisturizer if you have dry skin or use a moisturizing primer under it for oily skin.
There are two types of foundation cream. One, which you've probably heard of and used, is called the cream-to-powder foundation. This formula goes on thick and covers imperfections while providing an even tone. Perfect Prime has none of those characteristics; instead, it's lightweight. Even at its fullest coverage, Perfect Prime will be barely visible on your skin—no matter how many layers you apply!
Your foundation makeup should last all day. If it does not, you might have chosen a foundation that is too watery or doesn’t have proper coverage for your skin tone. It is important to choose a primer and foundation made for your skin type.
If you have dry skin, look for primers and foundations that contain hyaluronic acid or other moisturizing ingredients. If you have oily skin, look for mattifying products instead.
Natural and Undetectable
This formula for the best foundation for dry skin is crafted with ingredients that help give you a light, natural-looking finish. It contains over two and half times more antioxidants than traditional foundations. Additionally, it has SPF protection and can last up to 24 hours. This foundation will cover up your skin’s imperfections while still letting your natural beauty shine through.
Suitable for All Skin Types
So many foundations out there only cater to one or two skin types. Finding one that works for all different kinds of complexions can be difficult and often expensive. Fortunately, there is a foundation that works on all skin types, without too much hassle.
This best foundation for oily skin doesn’t leave behind flakes or uneven texture and it doesn’t cause you to break out more than usual. This foundation is available in many shades, so finding your perfect match will be easy and convenient. If you want flawless-looking skin without spending hours in front of a mirror, try Perfect Prime. You won’t regret it!
Why use Prime Perfect Foundation
Prime Perfect Foundation Brush has hit the makeup world by storm, and it's easy to see why! The weightless foundation provides coverage of the most expensive brands without leaving your skin feeling oily or heavy.
It also doesn’t clog pores, causing breakouts, or irritate sensitive skin like other products on the market can do. So what makes Prime Perfect Foundation stand out from its competitors? Find out with these 10 reasons why you need Prime Perfect Foundation in your life!
1) Ultra Long Wear
One of the best ways to reduce shine is to use a long-wearing foundation. Many women have problems with makeup fading and sliding off their faces during a long day. Whether you're working, commuting, or hanging out, makeup that lasts all day is something every woman deserves.
Prime Perfect foundation for dry skin provides hours of durable coverage without losing color or drying out your skin. It doesn’t matter if you’re standing around or sitting at your desk; it won’t budge until you wash it off.
While not a typical makeup characteristic, waterproof foundations are meant to protect your skin from sweat and water, which can easily break down cosmetics. That means that if you're someone who frequently perspires or spends time near water (swimming, getting caught in a rainstorm), the waterproof foundation for oily skin is worth considering.
With such an oily skin foundation, you can work out with ease or spend quality time with friends by the pool without worrying about ruining your look. Waterproof products contain ingredients like dimethicone and silicones (although these also make it difficult to wash off). They are ideal for those who exercise regularly or live active lifestyles. Plus, they typically last much longer than other formulas so there’s less need to touch up throughout the day!
3) Best Coverage For Acne
I'm a 23-year-old who has tried nearly every drugstore foundation out there. When I was 17, I started getting acne on my face and nothing worked to get rid of it--or even cover it up. Most products seemed to make it worse, leaving my skin red and irritated. It wasn't until recently that I discovered how sensitive my skin is and exactly what it needs.
Now that I've found Prime Perfect Foundation by Heritage Products, my skin looks and feels amazing! The coverage is incredible for mild to moderate acne like mine, with no added irritants or acne triggers. It's super lightweight and blends into your skin flawlessly without looking cakey or heavy.
4) Adjusts To Every Skin Tone
The lightest shade of Prime Perfect Foundation Waterproof adjusts to every skin tone while still giving you a smooth and flawless finish. Once it's set, it doesn't budge all day long so you can have peace of mind when you're working up a sweat.
No Touch Up: Not everyone has time to touch up their makeup throughout the day and there is nothing worse than having your full coverage foundation running down your face because you didn't want to take a break from work. Whether you're at work or play, Prime Perfect Foundation lasts for up to 24 hours with no touch-ups needed so that'll never be an issue for you!
5) Quick and Easy Application
Gone are the days of caking on foundation HD makeup for coverage. Now you can get a flawless finish without spending all night applying your foundation. With just one dab, Prime Perfect Foundation provides an even, natural-looking finish that lasts all day.
It’s great for both women who want to spend less time on their makeup routine and those who need full coverage or want to even out skin tone.
All shades of Prime Perfect foundation liquid have been specifically formulated to give you a soft, smooth, and flawlessly blended base. The advanced water-based formula is quick-drying and stays put, allowing you to continue with your daily routine while wearing your perfect shade.
Plus, with SPF 15 to help protect against sun damage and long-lasting anti-aging benefits, it's easy to see why our foundation deserves a place in every woman's life. Get ready for compliments!
7) Budget Friendly
Whether you’re saving for a special occasion or just trying to stick to a budget, it’s important to make sure that your beauty foundation powder products won’t break your bank.
With Prime Perfect foundation stick, you get more foundation for less money. For example, other liquid foundations might cost $60 while our product only costs $45—and offers five times as much product. That's why we call ourselves Prime and Perfect. We want our customers not only to enjoy their purchase but also save some green along the way.
8) Made From Natural Ingredients
If you’re looking for a cruelty-free and vegan foundation, look no further. This revolutionary formula is made with plant extracts and filled with antioxidants that nourish your skin. The best part is that it contains no harmful chemicals.
It goes on light, but it also gives your skin a nice dose of moisture while it stays true to its medium coverage claim. If you want full coverage, then make sure to apply two layers of the foundation. Its SPF 15 content will help protect your skin from damage caused by UV rays, too! Here are a few more reasons why you should get some Prime Perfect foundation today
9) Protects Against Sun Damage
If you’re not already wearing sunscreen foundation primer every day, now is a great time to start. It can help prevent wrinkles and reverse sun damage before it's too late. And it makes an excellent primer for your foundation; your skin will look smooth even when you wear it underneath. We recommend SPF 30 or higher for extra protection against harsh rays.
If you have sensitive skin or allergies to makeup, Prime Perfect Foundation can be applied without worrying about irritation. It is compatible with all skin types and has no dyes or irritants that could cause allergic reactions.
Best of all, it goes on evenly to create a smooth, even surface over your natural skin so you can avoid rashes and other issues that result from irritated skin. If your allergies make it difficult for you to find a foundation that doesn't trigger reactions, try Prime Perfect Foundation and see how easy makeup application can be.
Different types of foundation
Foundation is one of the most important parts of your makeup routine – without it, you’ll be left with serious flaws and uneven skin that just won’t go away. As such, it’s crucial to choose the right kind to meet your specific needs, as well as a formula that’s right for your skin type and tone. Although this part of your routine may seem simple on the surface, there are dozens of foundation options out there, with more being released every day.
1) Coverage foundations
Coverage foundations are thicker and fuller coverage than BB or CC creams, yet they feel lightweight on your skin. They often include anti-aging ingredients like peptides or retinol to give you a complexion boost.
This is one foundation that can truly replace your heavy concealer, BB cream, and CC cream. Also known as a full coverage foundation.
2) Matte foundations
This type is ideal for normal, oily, and combination skin types. On top of providing coverage, it also allows your skin to breathe.
Using a matte foundation will help reduce shine and control excess oil. Be careful though, as they tend to look cakey and mask-like if you're not careful! Look for ones that are labeled matte or natural matte so you know it won’t be too drying on your face.
3) Glowy foundations
These are foundations that contain micronized pigments and a high level of shimmer that can give you a dewy, glowy finish. For example, products like FACES CANADA Shimmering Skin Perfector and FACES CANADA Custom Enhancer Drops contain unique blends of ingredients to help them pack a luminous punch.
If you’re looking for an alternative to shimmery foundation, be sure to check out FACES CANADA Compact or Chanel’s Les Beiges Healthy Glow Serum—these complexion products have light-reflective properties but won't look sparkly once they're on your skin. These are some foundation options
4) High coverage, full-coverage, pro-coverage foundations
These are what you’ll find in department stores and large makeup counters. These high-coverage foundations tend to come in a jar or compact, and they offer a full mask of coverage, so all or most blemishes are covered.
If you want that special occasion look, where your skin looks airbrushed and perfect all day, choose one of these foundation formulas. These also can double as a concealer for under-eye circles, but be aware that if you're planning on sweating or swimming later in the day (or right after application), it won’t hold up under water very well. Again, you’ll probably want something waterproof (and usually higher priced) for an extended outdoor activity like that.
5) Full matte finish foundations
Full matte finish foundations are a perfect option for oily skin types as they don't clog pores or exacerbate shine. They typically last all day without fading or smudging but be aware that these can sometimes look flat or heavy on dry skin and might leave you looking more caked than covered.
Luckily, there are some excellent options on both ends of the price spectrum (from drugstore brands like FACES CANADA Stay Matte Pressed Powder and more expensive options from Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation) so you can find something that works with your budget. And as always, remember less is more when it comes to applying foundation—just a small amount will do!
6) cream-to-powder foundations
Sometimes called cream foundations, these usually have a creamy texture with pigments mixed in. This makes them ideal for people who have oily skin, as creams tend to provide more coverage without looking heavy or powdery. Cream-to-powder foundations are also perfect for retouching, as they can be applied quickly and easily.
However, one downfall is that many cream-to-powder foundations only come in light shades, making them ideal for lighter skin tones but less effective on darker ones. The other big downside is that they don't last very long at all. Cream-to-powder foundations need frequent touchups, which means more time in front of mirrors and more money spent on the product.
7) Sheer coverage, light coverage, natural coverage, buildable foundations
it can be overwhelming trying to figure out what kind you need. Thankfully, we've broken down the foundation for combination skin into 10 different categories so you can zero in on exactly what you’re looking for. From sheer coverage foundations that offer light coverage but buildable options as well as sheer foundations that are a little bit more heavy-duty and keep your skin smooth all day long, there is a foundation out there for every need! Find your perfect match with these 10 essential types. Here’s how
8) Brightening foundations
Brightening full coverage best foundations are designed with specific undertones in mind, usually pink or yellow. They help bring out a natural glow in your skin and work well on people with dull complexions.
Using a foundation that matches your skin's undertone can make you look more alive by not only bringing out underlying tones but also masking any discoloration that may be present on your face (dark spots, acne marks, etc.). What's more, is that brightening foundations tend to photograph better? When it comes time for you and your friends to take those Instagram photos while sitting poolside at an upscale resort, you’ll want some extra glow!
9) Primers and BB creams (including colored BB creams!) as foundations are also included here.
Primers and BB creams (including colored BB creams!) as foundations are also included here. The type of foundation blender you’ll want to wear is going to depend on your skin type, natural coloring, and texture. These guidelines will help you figure out which foundation is best for you.
Fair/Light: If you have light skin with pink undertones, yellow/olive undertones, or peach/pink undertones then a fair-skinned woman will likely suit your needs with a fair-skinned shade that's between ivory and pink. They should appear neither too pale nor too dark; those closest to beige will match most fair-skinned women well.
10) Colored tinted moisturizers/tinted skin balms/tinted serums
Whether you’re going for a glow or trying to cover imperfections, you need color. The best-tinted moisturizers and balms have light-reflecting ingredients like mica, titanium dioxide, and zinc oxide that actually help correct skin tone—and boost radiance in other areas (like your cheeks) as well. Bonus: The fewer layers on your face, generally speaking, the better.
How Prime Perfect Foundation is different from other foundations
Traditional liquid foundation for dusky skin absorbs into the skin and settles onto pores, making them more visible and even more enlarged. Prime Perfect Foundation is different from other foundations; it fills in pores from beneath your skin's surface so you can see smoother, clearer skin.
The formula dries to a powder finish, which means you can easily apply additional makeup over it without looking cakey or pasty. Plus, it blends with existing makeup for a custom color that’s always perfect for your skin tone.
How to choose your foundation shade
To choose the right foundation, you’ll first need to know how to pick your shade. Knowing your skin tone and undertone will help you figure out if you’re warm, cool, or neutral, and choosing the correct shade will ensure that your foundation lasts all day with the perfect color match.
Plus, keeping your makeup routine as simple as possible will ensure that you keep it fun and don’t overwhelm yourself by trying to choose an entire makeup collection at once! Check out these ten ways to choose your foundation shade below!
1) If possible, try before you buy
In the future, the salesgirl at a Faces Canada foundation cosmetics counter will try a swatch of foundation on you, and she should be able to tell you how it looks, but ultimately you have to decide what is best for your skin tone. Instead of waiting until you have an appointment with someone who knows her stuff, take time out of one day each week or month (if possible) just for trying on different shades of makeup.
2) Go between two shades
Choosing a foundation color is not as simple as pointing at one on a wall or in a book and calling it my color. It's all about finding something that works with your skin tone and minimizes any discoloration you may have.
A professional makeup artist can be helpful if you want to avoid looking like you're wearing too much makeup, but if you'd rather do it yourself, here are some tips: Use two shades that are close together on either side of your neck or jawline. Compare them by swiping them on opposite sides of your face and then blending them—this way, you can find a middle ground between warm and cool tones.
3) Consider your undertones
Foundation comes in three different undertones – pink, yellow and neutral. To determine which type you are, try applying some foundation to your jawline. If it disappears into your skin or creates a grey cast, you have cool undertones (if not, move on to step 2).
Next look at your veins: if they appear blue then you have cool undertones (if not go to step 3). Your nose can also be a good guide – if it has a purple tinge when you apply pressure to it then you most likely have cool undertones. If that doesn't work for you then apply some lip balm on either side of your face, where the cheek meets the brow bone.
4) Pick a shade based on how it looks in different lighting
If you’re using a matchbook, for example, look at yourself in natural light and check out how it looks under bright fluorescent lights.
Go outside on a cloudy day, into direct sunlight, and then into the shade. These different types of lighting will show you how well a particular shade works with your skin tone. If it looks different everywhere you go, don't buy it! Find something that works for you in any kind of environment.
5) Wear lighter foundations for evening makeup
If you're opting for medium or full coverage makeup, switch up your shades. Makeup artist Tania Coleridge recommends putting on a lighter foundation just before going out to balance out oily skin. As the day progresses and your skin oiliness builds, you will naturally have more product on your face. If you use a darker shade then, it won't appear as natural, even if you still want high coverage.
6) Consider online reviews
If you're new to buying cosmetics online, it can be a little tricky figuring out how much of a product is needed and how it should look on the skin. One way around that is looking for reviews by other consumers who've already tried it out.
Before you spend money on any new foundation, read as many online reviews as possible, especially those written by women with similar skin tones. People generally won’t post negative reviews (even if they hate something), so chances are you’ll only see glowing praise. On top of that, not all shades will look good on every person, so don’t assume that just because it works for one woman in her 20s with light skin means it will work for you too.
7) Learn about color combinations
To get a sense of how colors interact with each other. It's important to know about color combinations because two pigments that look amazing on their own may not play well together.
For example, neon green and bright red won't ever be friends but if you mix them in equal amounts you get a beautiful green—so test out different color pairings before you commit. With foundation shades, it’s common for people who have cool undertones to look better in shades with blue notes while those with warmer undertones tend to suit orange-based tones better.
8) Beware of skin colors marketed as universal or nude
When choosing a foundation, don't just go by what color it looks like in its bottle. Because the skin is made up of different levels of redness and yellow or green, there's no such thing as a one size fits all skin tone, which is why one color will look very different on different women.
To help you get it right every time, follow this 10 tips:1. Go by undertones: If you have an oval face shape, choose a foundation with golden undertones if you want a warm finish; or if you have an angular face shape (if it looks triangular from above), opt for more pinky undertones for a cooler finish.
9) Shop at stores with knowledgeable makeup artists
It's always easier to try on a range of products with a makeup artist who knows their stuff. (That's why even if you're buying online, you may want to take time for an in-person consultation.) The sales associates at any department store worth shopping at can help make sure you get matched correctly, as well as offer tips on what color will work best for your skin tone and coloring.
If they don't have time, steer clear of any stores that don't invest in good customer service or product knowledge. The money isn't worth it if they don't know how to help you find what works best for you.
10) Practice makes perfect
Like anything else, choosing a foundation color will take some trial and error. Before you buy a product at full price, test it out. Go to an area store that has testers or use inexpensive brands (like FACES CANADa) until you get an idea of what color works best for you.
There are several tricks people have used over time including looking at certain items such as a white napkin, swiping lipstick on cheekbones, or holding products up against various spots on your face. The truth is that there’s no right way, so practice different methods and pick one that works for you. It may take some trial and error but finding that perfect shade of foundation is well worth it!
How to choose foundation according to your skin type
Foundation is one of those tricky beauty products to shop for because it comes in so many forms (stick, liquid, mousse) and shades. On top of that, there are a ton of other factors to consider—it's gotta be lightweight but not cakey; natural-looking but long-lasting.
To make things easier on you, we’ve put together a foolproof guide to choosing a foundation according to your skin type. So whether you have dry skin or combination skin—or even sensitive skin or acne-prone skin—we’ve got advice that’ll work wonders no matter what.
How to properly prep your face for foundation
Applying foundation onto clean skin will help your make-up stay in place throughout your day, so it’s best to cleanse and moisturize beforehand. If you have oily skin, look for a foundation with oil-control ingredients; if you have dry skin, avoid oily formulas and opt for one made with hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid.
Using foundation primer is another great way to ensure your foundation lasts through an entire workday. You can apply it before or after your moisturizer; both methods will help keep your makeup intact longer. For brightening up dark spots or acne scars, look for a concealer with a lighter tone than your foundation, and be sure to blend well so there are no lines of demarcation on your face.
How to apply Prime Perfect Foundation properly
Application is key, here. Prime's natural-looking formula makes it easy to apply as a layer of primer or on its own. But how you do it matters—as do your tools. After cleansing and moisturizing, use a foundation brush (try FACES CANADA #63 Precision Foundation Brush) to apply just three stripes of product onto your forehead, one along each cheekbone and one down your nose.
Blend with a sponge-like FACES CANADA Collection Classic Multitasker Sponge Applicator or any makeup sponge that suits you best; my personal favorite, Ward says, is The Original Beauty Blender.
Tools to apply Prime Perfect Foundation flawlessly
You can use a makeup sponge, a brush, or your fingers to apply Prime Perfect Foundation. For an even, natural-looking finish, we recommend using a makeup sponge like RT Airbrush Sponge.
RT Airbrush Sponge is great at helping Prime Perfect Foundation achieve medium-to-full coverage while evenly blending in with your skin. Apply it by dabbing on foundation and smoothing it out with an upward motion, using your fingers to blend out any harsh lines or streaks that may have formed as you pat on the product.
Prime Perfect Foundation tips for beginners
If you’re new to wearing foundation, here are a few things to keep in mind:
First, choose a formula that gives full coverage. Second, apply it with your fingers (using circular strokes) or a makeup sponge. Most people don’t need to use a brush—although you can if you want (and if it makes you feel better).
Third, wait until your skin is completely dry before applying it. Fourth, buy products that are specifically designed for your skin type. For example, normal/combination skin looks best in satin and silk finishes; oily skin is best suited for matte formulas; sensitive skin does well with mineral-based products.
Prime Perfect Foundation tips and tricks
Applying foundation can be challenging, especially when it comes to picking a color that works with your skin tone. There are hundreds of shades and undertones (and combinations of those) in every brand and type, so it's no wonder choosing a foundation is stressful.
The key to priming your face is to do it correctly and find a primer that works well with your skin type. Whether you have oily, dry, or combination skin, these tips will help keep your foundation looking fresh all day long. First, wash your face and moisturize it before putting on any makeup. Then grab a bottle of foundation primer (which you can apply either with your fingers or a makeup brush) and follow these steps:
1) Locate the largest pores on your nose, along your T-zone (forehead), under each eye area, and around your cheeks.
2) Put primer on one finger at a time and smooth gently over areas where large pores tend to appear.
3) Work in small sections if necessary until you've covered all of those trouble spots.
Prime Perfect Foundation hacks
There are a lot of factors when it comes to choosing your foundation, from skin tone to coverage level, so here are some tips on how to pick your perfect formula.
First up: matching. Don't assume that you can just slap any foundation on your face and be good to go. Every woman has different skin tones, even within their own family—a mom may have a lighter complexion than her daughter does.
How to remove Prime Perfect Foundation properly
Prime Perfect foundation is a medium coverage foundation that has a natural satin finish. The formula contains an SPF 17 sunscreen to protect your skin from UVA and UVB rays.
Prime's specially designed applicator is used to apply a thin even layer of formula on your face, then you use your fingers to blend out any areas you may have missed with more product. The foundation will last on average 8 hours before fading away into nothing. Removing it can be done by either washing it off with water or with makeup remover wipes.
Can I apply this without a primer?
Primer is important. It prevents your skin from absorbing oils and enhances your foundation's wear time. That said, some primers contain silicone-based ingredients that can clog pores and aggravate acne-prone skin, making a primer a double-edged sword. If you do experience breakouts with certain primers, use only once a week or choose those formulated with plant oils instead of silicones, like Too Faced Hangover RX Primer ($29).
Is it long-lasting?
Today’s high-performance foundations are designed to stay put all day—without a primer or setting powder. This type of foundation contains ingredients that keep it from separating (aka moving around on your face) or caking in fine lines, like antioxidants and UV filters.
Another key ingredient to look for is silicone, which fills in wrinkles and makes skin appear smoother. If you tend to have dry skin, try an oil-free formulation; too much oil can make acne worse. Conversely, oily skin types will be happy with a matte formula designed to control excess shine. Experimenting with different foundations is part of having fun while getting dressed each morning!
Can I wear it during the summer?
The key to finding your perfect foundation is making sure you pick a formula that’s right for your skin type. Even within each skin type, there are plenty of options depending on your preferences. If you have oily skin, there are oil-free foundations that don’t give up at lunchtime.
If you have dry skin, it might be best to find a hydrating formula to make sure it doesn't end up looking cakey or flaky by noon. And so on. Each season comes with its own set of challenges when it comes to makeup wearability—but knowing what you need is essential before choosing a foundation.
Is it safe for teenage girls?
Teenage girls are a particularly sensitive group when it comes to skincare. As teenagers, our bodies are still growing and changing, and we're prone to acne outbreaks.
