Day 19: Foxy Advent Calendar Tip Of The Day

Patrice Boudreau brings us our Day 19 beauty tip. Consider this tip a teaser to a more thorough post in the future which cover all that you need to know about foundation.

As a professional freelance makeup artist, Patrice has been working in television and on feature films for the past 20 years. You may have seen some of his work in Robocop or on the TV series Suits. I was fortunate to meet and work with Patrice when he was a full-time makeup artist for Clarins. He was the star attraction of events in my store, and women loved getting their makeup done by Patrice because of his talent, professionalism and of how he made them feel like a star themselves!

“When looking for a new foundation, you need to be prepared and keep in mind these 3 fundamental choices:

  1. What kind of coverage am I looking for? Do you have anything to camouflage or are you simply looking for something to enhance your complexion? Maybe you are looking to refine the texture of your skin and have the foundation make it look smoother?  
  2. What texture do I prefer on my skin? There are different textures available now to meet the needs of the most demanding customer. They range from the ever so light mousse foundations to the most comforting of creams, and don’t forget the practical powders.
  3. What is the final result I am looking for? Are you expecting your face to stay matte all day? Maybe you prefer a radiant look or that of a sparkling star on the red carpet – just keep in mind what you want your result to be.”


Foundation can be a tricky purchase for a lot of people, and it is certainly good to go in shopping prepared and with some ideas of your own. Thanks Patrice and looking forward to more from you!
