So, the most important step to an amazing makeup is fabulous looking skin and often using foundation is the way to achieve it. Most of us generally don’t like wearing heavy foundations and the wrong foundation is a dead give away to a bad makeup application. As time goes on, products are becoming more and more advanced and it’s now easy to get flawless looking skin with bb creams and foundations. Foundations used to seen as a detriment to healthy skin but now with all kinds fabulous ingredients to help prime, hydrate, protect with spf and help with anti-aging, they can actually be part of a healthy skin care regimen.
I’m happy to see more makeup companies include colors to match tanned and darker skin tones and also love that great makeup comes in all price ranges from budget friendly drugstore brands to high-end department store and pro brands.
A few tips for flawless foundation application:
- I like to mix a little bb cream with the foundation before applying. (I use a cd as a palette)
- Apply with a brush, you will need less product.
- If you need a fuller coverage (for blemishes or uneven areas), apply with a damp beauty blender sponge in a dabbing manner (called stippling) That way the makeup will stay where you put it.
- Set with a translucent powder using a big fluffy brush.
