Pro Steps For A Flawless Foundation
I have to attend a weeding occasion in the coming week of march and I have not made any preparations for the same as I would be getting all dolled up for the close family affair! But because of my busy schedule I hardly get time to do my skincare routine on a regular basis, using makeup is a distant dream for me and I have given thought on how I am going to end up looking if in case I don’t get the services of a salon at the wedding venue! 🙁
There is no doubt that I have learned a lot about makeup since I joined WiseShe in 2013 and now at least I can presentable get ready for an occasion and also be complimented if I got the time to get ready properly! :-p
For casual makeup looks I mainly rely on BB creams on any given day and it is only for those special occasions that I use any foundation product! Recently, I picked the New Maybelline Fit Me Poreless Foundation and looking forward to try it for my Sangeet and Haldi looks!
Unlike BB Creams, a foundation is not that easy to use and there are certain pre-rituals for applying foundation and so here are some of the best pro tips to help one in getting the most flawless looking foundation!
Make sure before you begin your makeup, you have applied a toning product on the face as it will make the skin restore the normal pH and also reduce the appearnce of skin pores making your foundation look even more flawless!
Dry Skin Woes-
If you have dry skin, it is the mus do ritual for you because in a few hours of makeup application your makeup will start to oxidize and look totally evident! Always apply a hydrating face moisturizer to let your skin remain nourished in case you have to remain in makeup for long hours!
In case you have an oily skin you can skip the moisturizing step and jump on the primer application!
Prep Up The Skin With Primer-
This is an essential step to make sure that your foundation doesn’t look cakey after few hours of application or start looking powdery!
It ensures smooth look after foundation is properly applied on the face! Certain other products like blush, bronzer or highlighter also blend easily when you have properly applied face primer on the skin prior to foundation!
Choose a base product as per your skin type! For dry skin use a liquid based foundation while oily skin can try mousse or mineral foundation to give an even base to the face!
Pour some amount of foundation at the back of your hand and apply with a sponge or a foundation makeup brush!
Cover the imperfections with a single layer of the base!
Conceal Those Imperfections-
Make sure to cover the dark spots and under eye area! Blend the concealer well otherwise it is going to look evident in light!
Always go for brand foundations and consult the SA before buying it or at least try it on the face and compare it in different lights and then pick the right shade! Match your foundation with the face skin tone and not the neck as the common notion goes!
If you tend to follow all these steps in the similar order then you have set your base perfectly and can easily go ahead with eye makeup application or lipstick eventually!
Some pro artists focus on doing the eye makeup first and then going ahead with an eye makeup! This depends of you and whatever you are comfortable with you can go with that! 🙂
