Ever wonder why makeup gurus have such perfect looking skin? The secret is simple - they know exactly how to apply and wear foundation and what works for them. Here are a few makeup secrets to make your foundation look flawless and last all day long.
1 - SKINCARE:
A regular skincare routine is a must for flawless makeup application. Gently exfoliate your face with a facial scrub and a special sponge to remove dead cells and excessive oil.
2 - HYDRATE & MOISTURIZE:
To ensure smooth application and even coverage, moisturize your skin with a lightweight cream.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT PRODUCT:
Selecting the right foundation texture and consistency based on your desired results may be challenging but is also crucial for flawless application.
For a natural, seamless coverage, choose a sheer bb cream, it will moisturize your skin and protect if from UV lights. If you are in need of full coverage makeup, try out a professional cream or liquid foundation, that provides a full cover effect. Can't find your shade? Don't be afraid to mix different shades of foundations together and create your own custom color.
3 - PRIME & PERFECT:
Apply your makeup products in the correct order. Start off with a primer, gently massaging it into the skin. Makeup primer will minimize the appearance of large pores, blackheads and fine lines. Give your primer some time to absorb into the skin and continue with color correction.
4 - FOUNDATION APPLICATION:
The next step is foundation: apply a thin layer of your favorite foundation with clean fingertips or a synthetic foundation brush. Buff the foundation into your skin with fingers or a makeup sponge. After this step, you can conceal dark circles and other problematic areas.
5 - LOCK IT ALL IN WITH SETTING POWDER:
One of the last and very important steps for a flawless makeup is setting powder. Use a soft and fluffy powder brush and apply a thin coat of powder.
Setting powder will 'lock' the foundation and concealer into your skin, providing a beautiful satin finish. Powder will also make your foundation last all day long and reduce oiliness.
You can also seal your foundation with a makeup setting spray, but this step is optional.
