Learning how to apply a foundation base properly is the key to your whole makeup look. Follow these steps for a smooth and flawless complexion.
1. Apply moisturizer five minutes before you start your makeup. All bases will on much more smoothly if your skin is well hydrated. Tissue off any excess, while hydrated skin is good for foundation, greasy skin will make it slip and slide.
2. Remember less is more, so don’t apply big swathes, instead put a few dots around your face. Now, using your fingers or a foundation sponge, blend those dots together. Make sure you blend well around your hairline and jaw. If you’ve chosen the right shade there should not be a join, but it’s better to be safe than sorry.
3. Once the foundation has settled into the skin, check if there are any obvious under-eye shadow or blemishes showing through. If there are, use concealer on these. I will tell you how in the next pos. If you want a matte fresh, apply loose powder with a brush, or heavier coverage press it into the skin with a soft puff.
