Dot foundation on the face and blend with a damp sponge or with fingertips. Don’t forget the neck. Apply loose powder, or try compact powder to set the foundation. Use foundation with beige tones, rather than pink. Beige suits Indian skin colour better. If you have a very fair ivory skin, go for beige with a rosy tint.
If the complexion is fair, but pale (yellowish), avoid pink tones and go for beige or biscuit. Darker complexions look better with brownish beige. Most Indian skin tones look better in beige or biscuit shades of foundation, rather than pink.
Or go for gold foundation for any special occasion. Dot the face with it and blend with a moist sponge, to give the skin a golden glow. When you apply make-up, remember not to smear too much or rub it. Whether it is foundation or blusher, it is best to dot it with a light touch, using a fingertip, or an applicator. It can also be applied lightly and evenly with a damp sponge.
