In today's blog I decided I'm going to give you a step to step guide on how to apply foundation to that pretty little face of yours !! so here we go .
The right shade ?
we all have the difficulty on finding the right shade of foundation you know where you pick up the wrong shade of foundation yes you do know don't lie we have all done it so I'm going to give you a tip on finding the right one for you when you are making the purchase of foundation always test it out on your hand or an even better area to do it is on your jawline make sure its in day light though if the colour is right for you it should disappear with out the need of blending it another little tip if you can't splurge out on a more expensive foundations at a department store don't be afraid to you up to the beauty adviser and ask them what shade would suit your skin tone and try it out here's another little sneaky tip ask them for a sample to take home so you can bring it to the drug store to find your closest look !
Prep your skin !
For the prefect canvas you need to make sure your skin is clean and well moisturized make sure you wait a good 5 minutes before applying your foundation to let your moisturizer soak into your pores . Primmer I use primmer from time to time but its really up to yourself if you want to use it the best thing about primmer is if you need a look to last all night then apply it before your foundation it will help minimize pores and enhance the foundation a little tip if you are having a lazy day then just apply primmer to your face to give you a smoother complexion .
Applying your foundation !!!
when applying your foundation I strongly recommend you purchase a beauty blender even if you don't want to splurge out on one w7 cosmetics have dupes " Power Puff face blender " they only cost around 3.00 euro and they do just as good they are available in a wide range of colours they just leave the right amount on your skin after you buy them they become your best friend , before you apply your foundation to the beauty blender soak the beauty blender in water it doubles in size and it helps even out the foundation better .
Apply the foundation to your beauty blender dab the foundation only in areas that you need it to cover up any redness in then skin or to help even out your t-zone to get a nice even finish blend in the foundation all over always start in the middle and work your way out one thing I'm going to say is don't pile on the foundation on to your face less is more .
By applying concealer after your foundation you will use a lot less and what ever you do don't put on a shade way to light than your skin colour it will just come off as fake looking always use a shade slightly lighter than your skin colour make sure its only one shade lighter not two or three shades lighter it just wont work !! use a small pointed brush to apply your concealer in a triangle under neath your eye to cover up any darkness and blend in if you have any other areas of redness that the foundation didn't cover then pick you your small pointed brush and apply your concealer those areas of your skin .
Last but not least apply a foundation powder all over your face to help make the foundation last longer and don't for get to blend it really in with your big blender brush !!!
