Does your face match the rest of the body after foundation application? Or your hairline stands out in contrast to your face after using foundation? Read this!
In recent times, foundation application has gotten a bit easier, but a lot of ladies still struggle with flawless application for daily wear.
With foundation application, it’s best to know first, what product works for your type of skin.
For an oily skin, a water-based foundation is best and for dry skin, an oil based one might be best.
For wear, one should consider coverage; full, medium or sheer which usually depends on the state of the skin.
Note that if the skin is blemished or plagued with breakouts, it should not be masked with foundation, but be treated first.
In fact, most times it’s best to let the skin breathe by staying off makeup to help clear those areas of the skin before proceeding with foundation and the rest of the face makeup.
Foundation should sit ‘skin perfect’ on the face – meaning it should blend seamlessly into the skin and other areas as the hairline, ears, neck area to create a perfect canvas for other makeup products.
Whether using a foundation brush or beauty blender product (foundation) should be worked into the face in gentle strokes in a way that it’s pushed gently into the skin.
The foundation brush should be gently worked around areas of the face for seamless coverage, pushing product into the skin in a downward stroke.
When applying with beauty blender, product should be pushed in gently into the skin in short dabbing strokes.
Note that if wearing a light foundation, you can build up application to get a medium or full coverage effect or till the desired coverage is achieved.
