Using Foundation Tips

Many women opt out of using foundation because they think it will give them that “caked on” make-up look. If foundation is applied correctly this can be easily avoided. There are a few common mistakes that women make when applying foundation.

The first most common mistake is using foundation as a concealer. This is what often gives that caked on look and causes the foundation to be easily visible. Foundation should be applied in a light layer over the entire face.

Make sure to blend the foundation with a sponge or fingertips. It should be blended into the hairline, and past the jaw line to avoid those unsightly foundation lines. Make sure to choose a color that is as close to one’s skin tone as possible. If the under eye area still looks a little dark, use a concealer or eye primer to correct the problem. Adding a nice slight face shimmer after foundation is a good way to get that bright fresh face look.
