10 Tips to Give Your Foundation a Flawless Finish7:30:00 PM
When using foundation, you always want to achieve a flawless finish. Whether you’re going out on the town, heading to work, or going shopping, you don’t want to leave any telltale signs that you’re wearing it. The following 10 tips will help you to get the most flawless finish possible!
Take Care of Your Skin
The better you take care of your skin in general, the better it’s going to look when you apply your makeup. Make sure you have a good skincare routine set up and you stick to it the majority of the time. This should include a cleanse, tone, and moisturise. You should always remove makeup properly too!
2. Use a Primer
Using a primer before your foundation will help make it stay on for longer. Not only that, you’ll look even more flawless than you would without one, as primers are designed to blur out imperfections. There are many different types, so you may want to try some samples.
3. Use Correcting Concealer
Correcting concealers come in shades of purple, yellow, and green. They are designed to go on before your foundation, and cover things like red spots and purple eye bags. Providing you blend your foundation properly, it should cancel out any color that is affecting your face.
4. Choose the Correct Shade of Foundation
Choosing the correct shade of foundation is so important. Yours might vary depending on the season, so make sure you keep an eye on your skin color. If you want to try out a few different types, then go for a free makeover at a beauty counter. Just be prepared to buy a foundation afterwards, as they are spending valuable time with you!
5. Use a Small Amount and Build it Up
Start off by using a small amount of foundation and build it up if you need to. If you want quite a sheer finish, you won’t need much at all. You may prefer a heavy duty coverage for nights out, in which case you can add a little more. Just remember it’s easy to add on layers, not so easy to take it away.
6. Blend With a Brush or Sponge
Use a good brush or sponge to blend your foundation. You’ll need to blend it all around your hairline, and onto your neck to make it look as flawless as possible. You can find beauty blender tips that will help you to achieve the best finish.
7. Use a Regular Concealer to Cover Spots and Dark Circles
When you’ve finished, you can then apply a regular concealer to cover any spots or dark circles you may have.
8. Set Certain Areas With a Powder
If you get oily in areas of the face, you’ll want to set those areas with a powder. It’s always worth investing in a good powder, as you don’t want your makeup to look cakey.
9. Use a Setting Spray
A setting spray will help your foundation to stay on, so make sure you use one lightly after applying your makeup.
10. Check it Out in Natural Light Before Going Anywhere
You must check out your foundation in natural light before you go anywhere. This is the only way you’ll see imperfections and lines.
