Do you struggle with how to apply your foundation? If you’re a beginner, you have probably encountered days when your application is flawless and some days are terrible. The key to achieving a flawless foundation application is taking your time in every step and blending the product.
Here, we share step by step guide on how to apply foundation to achieve a flawless finished look.
Preparing And Priming Your Skin
Always ensure you incorporate your daily skincare routine- it helps give your skin a lift by brightening and hydrating it. After your skincare routine, you need to apply primer. Primer smoothens the face, helps minimize the appearance of pores, and ensures that your makeup can stay put throughout the day.
Start With A Small Amount
Using the foundation of your choice and skin type, start with a small amount. You don’t want a heavy, caked-on look. It’s best to start with a little bit of foundation and add more if you need to.
Spread The Foundation Outward
Start your foundation application from the centre of your face and spread the foundation toward your hairline and neck. For a light and even coverage, use a synthetic brush- ensure you buff in small circles. Alternatively, for fuller coverage, use a damp sponge (ensure you clean your sponge regularly to avoid bacteria buildup).
Blend Your Foundation
Ensure there are no noticeable lines on your face where your foundation starts and ends. Use your preferred tool to blend your foundation until it looks skin-like.
Set Your Foundation With A Translucent Powder
To ensure that your foundation does not move or slide around, you need to finish up by setting your face with a translucent powder.
