In this book, Dr. Jaishree Sharad talks about the fundamentals of the road to a glowing skin. From identifying your skin type, paying attention to the fine print on labels of various cosmetic products, to the newest advancements in skincare treatments. While solving all your skin problems this book also provides you with some of the best tips in order to choose the right make-up for yourself, keeping in mind what suits your skin and would’ve have the best effect.
Here are a few tips in order to help you choose the right make-up:

Never use alcohol-based toners and make-up removers. Alcohol is known to take the moisture away from the skin, leaving it dry. Instead, using oil-based make-up removers, balms, micellar water or rose water is better.

~

When buying make-up supplies, look for Matte products and avoid thick or solid make-up products like stick or creamy compact foundations.

~

A serum can be used as an effective primer before make-up, as it feels light on the skin and doesn’t create a thick film on the face. Choose a serum that will cater to your specific skin type.

~

If you have a family history of pigmentation, then it is advised that you avoid foundations and concealers as they can make it worse.

~

If you suffer from dry skin and have crossed your twenties, then you should choose a mousse or a cream or oil based foundation, making your skin look smooth and even.

~

If you are in your teen or twenties, you should opt for a non-oily, lightweight liquid foundation minimizing your breakouts.

~

If you have a highly acne prone skin, you should opt for a non-comedogenic foundation with salicylic acid. Another option could be Matte-finish liquid foundations.

~

Using a liquid concealer, for oily and acne-prone skin is the best to hide the blemishes.

~

Do not use fragrance-based make-up if you have sensitive skin.

~

If you have chapped lips, do not use matte lip cosmetics or smudge-proof lipsticks. They lack oils and certain emollients that helps keep the lips hydrated. Using glossy lipsticks and choosing lighter colours is better, as darker shades have more chemicals and make the lips drier.
