Makeup has the power to cover common skin concerns like acne, blemishes, dark circles and more. It also has the ability to make your skin look young. That’s true, with the right tips and tricks you can achieve younger-looking, flawless skin in minutes. Want to learn how to apply foundation to get youthful-looking skin? Let’s jump right to it without wasting another minute!
 

Start with a moisturiser

Start with a moisturiser

Skipping moisturiser before applying foundation is a huge mistake. Dehydrated skin often looks dull and mature; therefore, it is vital to complete your CTM routine before reaching out for the foundation. Your foundation will glide on easily on well-moisturised skin and won’t look patchy.

 

Apply primer

Foundation can easily settle into fine lines and wrinkles and accentuate their appearance. Applying a primer smoothens the skin by filling in pores and wrinkles, allowing your foundation to blend flawlessly and prevents the natural oils of your face from oxidising your foundation. The Lakme Absolute Blur Perfect Primer would be the perfect choice for anyone looking to cover their pores.

 

Use a damp sponge

Fingers and makeup brushes can be used for applying foundation, but if you want younger-looking, flawless skin, a makeup sponge is your best bet. Pour some foundation on the back of your hand and using a damp makeup sponge, dab it all over the face. This will give you sheer coverage, which is key to a youthful glow.

 

Start from the centre and move outwards

Start from the centre and move outwards

Start at the centre of the face and slowly move outwards. Focus on the area around the mouth and the corners of the nostrils, as it’s prone to pigmentation. This will give you even looking skin.

 

Spritz setting spray

While powders are used to set the look in place, they can settle into the pores and lines making your skin look older. Spritz a setting spray once you are done creating the look to achieve younger-looking, flawless skin.
