I admit it!! I have messed up my foundation way too many times but who hasn’t ? It’s completely alright! I have even seen celebrities with patchy, cake up foundation and uneven makeup.
Every girl tries to fix makeup errors, like smudged kajal, eyeliner, mascara & lipstick once in a while and kind of achieved success, but fixing a foundation is a pretty tough and time-consuming task. Foundation is the base component, so it has to be applied in the correct manner, one incorrect stroke and you will end up with an over done base.
Over the period of time with my observation, practice and few methodical steps, I have tried to master the foundation application process and here are the 5 hacks for you:
HYDRATE YOUR BODY AND SKIN:
Hydration is the prime resource which keeps body and skin healthy. So, drinking a lot of water will reduce the acne and pimple growth, which in turn will make your base application much easier. Also, try to hydrate your skin with a very good moisturizer and let it dry properly before applying foundation. This will surely help you with a smooth and even application.
PRIMER IS A MUST HAVE
Even after achieving a picture perfect even look, i always used to wonder why does my foundation evaporates after an hour? The reason is PRIMER. If you want your makeup to last long and also get a flawless look then Primer is your thing!
BUY THE RIGHT TYPE OF FOUNDATION
There are tons of foundation products in the market like Cream, liquid, Powder, stick and gel foundation. It is very confusing indeed, but don’t get overwhelmed. I usually go with a foundation which is recommended for all skin types. First try to understand your skin type and then choose a foundation formula which suits your skin. Do ask for help and suggestion from the shop makeup counter.
BUY THE RIGHT SHADE
Picking up a wrong shade will make your face look either too made up or too dull. Buying a right shade for your skin is not actually very difficult! You need to buy a shade which is very closer to your skin tone. Applying the right shade will complement your skin and give you the perfect look.
BLEND, BLEND AND BLEND
I have always tried to spend a good amount of time in blending the foundation well. Blending is the most important part, whether you do it with your finger, makeup sponge or make up brush, a proper blending style will make it look perfect. My trick of getting that flawless look is, i always use a wet makeup sponge to blend it all.
Hope these hacks will help you get closer to a perfect makeup look 🙂 🙂
