Today I’m sharing some foundation applying make-up tips I find useful to give you a pretty soft finish. Below I have attached my two favorite foundations!
1. Start with clean skin. Wash with a gentle cleanser or simply use a toner to wipe away any impurities from your skin.
2. Dab on a tinted moisturizer or a light foundation to your skin. Apply just a few spots with your fingers to your forehead, cheeks, nose and chin, then blend with fingers or a foundation brush( my favorite), working the spots outwards from the center in all directions. If you want more coverage, you can use a makeup sponge to apply, using the same blending technique.
3.Put a little concealer under the eyes. Use a small pointed brush to dot a bit where under-eye circles are darkest, usually at the inner and outer corners of the eye. Add a speck to other blemishes that aren’t covered by the foundation and blend into the skin. There’s a little controversy about whether a concealer should be the same shade as your skin or ever-so-slightly lighter; however, it should never be lighter than one shade away from your natural tone. Look for something as close as you can find to your skin tone and err on the lighter side if need be.
4.Set the concealer and moisturizer with a translucent powder. Apply it to your face, ideally using a velvet-y powder puff . Use a powder brush to flick off any excess. If you are using a powder brush to apply, tap off the excess powder before applying to your face in circular motions.
