They say foundation should look like your second skin and if it doesn’t then there’s something you’re doing wrong. While finding the perfect shade and formula is winning half the battle not everyone is a pro when it comes to applying foundation. So, today let’s go back to the basics and learn the right way of how to apply foundation on the face in just 3 simple steps!
Step 1: Start from the centre
Prep skin with your regular CTM routine and spread a pea sized amount of primer all over the face. Now pour some foundation on the back of your hand and apply on your face starting from the center and slowly blend it out. Take special care around the mouth area which is prone to shadows and discolouration. Don’t forget to apply foundation along your jawline and neck to make it look natural overall.
Step 2: Tap and dab. Don’t paint
There are three ways to apply foundation – makeup brush, sponge and fingers. No matter which method you use always tap or dab the foundation on your skin instead of rubbing it in. While blending is important to remember that it’s your skin and you need to be gentle while applying any beauty or makeup product on it.
Step 3: Set it
The foundation that isn’t set properly can look patchy, therefore use a setting powder or translucent powder to gently sweep over your face. This will keep the foundation in place and leave your skin looking smooth and beautiful. If your skin produces a lot of oil, this will also prevent excessive oil and ensure your makeup lasts longer.
