Building Beauty on the Right Foundation

When the right shade is applied properly, a great foundation is the perfect start to a flawless finish. But with so many Mary Kay® formulas and shades to choose from, selecting the right one to build on can sometimes be confusing. Here are a few foundation facts that can help you find your perfect match.

TimeWise® Luminous-Wear® Liquid Foundation

TimeWise® Luminous-Wear® Liquid Foundation is an age-fighting formula that instantly makes skin look firmer, younger and healthier. Enriched with ingredients that deliver lasting comfort and hydration, like skin-loving jojoba, it’s formulated to keep normal to dry skin feeling moisturized and looking luminous and radiant all day. Skin looks immediately brightened as skin texture is visibly improved and skin imperfections are visibly reduced. The lightweight formula provides a long-lasting luminous, dewy finish.


TimeWise® Matte-Wear® Liquid Foundation

TimeWise® Matte-Wear® Liquid Foundation is the perfect age-fighting formula that instantly makes skin look firmer, younger and healthier.  Special microspheres work all day to absorb oil and control shine while visibly reducing the appearance of pores.  Formulated for combination to oily skin, the lightweight formula provides a long-lasting matte finish.


Mineral Powder Foundation

The Mary Kay®  Mineral Powder Foundation combines the feel of a powder with the coverage of a foundation. Lines, wrinkles and finer imperfections seem to disappear. Weightless and skin-perfecting, the powder provides natural coverage in the sweep of a brush. For a flawless look, a specially designed mineral foundation brush should be used when applying this type of foundation.


Medium-Coverage Foundation

This liquid foundation is generally best for normal to oily skin. It provides even coverage and helps control excess oil.


Creme-to-Powder Foundation

A lightweight, two-in-one product that glides on like a cream and then dries to a powder matte finish. It’s great for women who like more opaque coverage and/or need to hide minor imperfections and blemishes. The foundation pan was designed to fit beautifully into the Mary Kay® Compact and Compact Pro®.


Day Radiance® Cream Foundation

A rich, creamy foundation that helps seal in moisture, so it’s great for women with dry skin. The foundation pan was designed to fit conveniently into the Mary Kay® Compact and Compact Pro®. (Not all Independent Beauty Consultants offer Mary Kay® Day Radiance® Cream Foundation, so check with your Beauty Consultant for availability.)

Find the Shade for You

Find your perfect foundation shade.

Once you’ve found the perfect formula to fit your needs, the next step in achieving complexion perfection is finding the right shade. In addition to evening out skin tone and helping protect the skin from environmental damage, foundation can make the skin look smooth and flawless. Here are a few tips for nailing down the perfect hue:

  • Yellow-based foundations work well on almost everyone. Foundations with a little yellow will even out almost every complexion. Yellow minimizes red, which may be inherent in skin’s coloring as a result of tanning, aging or broken capillaries.
  • Test a shade on your jawline or cheek. The correct shade should literally disappear into the skin and blend with the skin tone of the neck rather than the face.
  • When trying a new shade, it's best to test in natural light. Also be sure to allow a few minutes for the foundation to adapt to your skin before making a decision on the color.
