Who doesn’t want their base makeup to look flawless, skin-like and natural? But making your foundation look non-cakey is a struggle for many, especially if you have bumps, acne, scars and large pores, aka textured skin. Applying foundation on textured skin can make it look patchy and cakey.

But fret not; we’ve got you covered. Scroll down to find out how to apply foundation on textured skin in four quick and simple steps. Consider this your holy-grail base makeup guide to cover up skin texture successfully.

How to apply foundation on textured skin: Step-by-step guide

Step 01: Before applying makeup, it is really important to prep your skin. After cleansing and toning your face, apply a generous amount of lightweight moisturiser like the Pond’s Light Moisturiser Non-Oily Fresh Feel all over your face and neck. The lightweight texture and gentle moisturising benefits hydrate your skin without the greasiness.


Step 02: Next, cover up skin texture, fill in pores and make your base resilient to sweat and oiliness by applying a coin-sized amount of the Lakme Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer all over your face and neck.


Step 03: Next, take about two to three drops of the Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation and dot it all over your face and neck. Blend the foundation in a gentle dabbing motion using a damp makeup sponge. Make sure to apply a thin layer and build-up coverage as you go.


Step 04: Finally, take a little bit of the Lakme 9 to 5 Naturale Finishing Powder and dust it over the areas that tend to get too super oily, and your base makeup is ready!
