I'm not very up on make-up and only wear it if I'm going out but a good tip I learnt was dot the foundation around your face and then always blend it in a downwards movement, never circular or upwards as this clogs the pores, also you should get a more even coverage.
Sorry if you already know/do this but I only found out about a year ago that this is what you should do and I'm 28! It seems to work too. I use Avon's foundation
Oh my gosh!! I have the SAME problem. It looks great when you put i on in the shop, next day, its the wrong colour, texture etc..its just a matter of trying different ones to see which one looks best on you.
I dont like matt foundations even though my skin is slightly oily as they make you look older and sit in fine lines giving you a caked out look. Go for more dewy light reflecting ones, such as Bobby Brown skin smoothing foundation �23 in a pot, Chanel vitaluminere again in a pot, they look quite thick but they are liquid and go on lightly with a nice glow with meduim coverage. Never choose foundation that is too pink toned if you have yellow toned skin or too dark for you as you'll look yuk. Try MAC Studio Tech foundation �22, and get it from selfridges where they can put it on for you. Another good one is Christian Dior Airbrush spray foundation which looks nice, like magazine skin and prob the only one which will resemble that, but remember these models pics are very airbrushed (hence the foundation name) and no one looks that great in real life, not even them! It costs �26 and you can build it up if you want. Get your face done with it at Selfridges.
Remember the key thing, always step outside and look in a mirror to check how you will look in daylight. as the light in stores is decieving.
If you cant afford that for foundation then try maybelline rewind foundation �6.99 it looks quite nice, and forget those matt mouses as they dont look nice.
