Make-up foundation comes in many different forms. The most common include liquid, stick, cream, BB cream, cushion cream, and a powder (mineral, loose or pressed) foundation. No wonder selecting the perfect foundation for your skin can be confusing. We haven’t even mentioned choosing a shade yet!
Foundation is a make-up product that creates an even finish to your skin, matching with your complexion, and is used on the face, neck and sometimes body. As the name suggests, it's the foundation for your make-up. Foundation has quite an interesting history. It’s said to have originated in ancient Rome and Greece, and here’s the thing, back then it was formulated with a poisonous chalk, also known as white lead. As you can imagine there were some pretty horrific side effects including losing teeth, hair loss and skin discolouration. During the 19th Century, foundation formula evolved (thank goodness!) into a liquid form, and it was in the 1930’s when powder foundation was first created, courtesy of Max Factor in Hollywood, who wanted to create a foundation that provided a more natural finish on screen. Its name? Pan-Cake.
