It’s no secret that Solenn Heussaff is a woman of many talents. But being most popularly known as an “artista,” people tend to forget that this 31-year-old stunner is also a trained makeup artist. She definitely knows her way around the beauty department! And when it comes to foundation, Solenn sticks to her tried-and-tested tricks:
1. It’s important to choose the right shade that perfectly matches your skin.
Solenn uses: L'Oreal True Match Liquid Foundation in G3, available in department stores
“In choosing your foundation, get the closest to your skin tone. We tend to have a lighter face than our body, so you can swatch it on your jaw or try it on your upper chest area... I use L'Oreal's liquid foundation in G3. It’s really lightweight and yet it covers all imperfections.”
2. Have at least two shades of foundation in your beauty arsenal, one of which should be a shade darker.
In case you love hitting the beach or you just happen to be a naturally outdoorsy person, “it’s nice to have two shades of foundation at home because you never know when you’re suddenly getting tanned. This way, you have at least two options [if you become a shade darker]. You can even blend them together.”
3. Keep things as au naturel as possible.
“You don’t have to put too much foundation on your skin. If you already have nice skin to begin with, then applying on the T-zone area should be enough.”
