Foundation coverage tips – How to use foundation to target your skin’s needs

How do you usually apply foundation? Do you spread it all over like a mask and layer it with other makeup products until you create the look you were after? What if we told you, that’s not how you wear a foundation, yes you read that right. Not every skin requires a heavy coverage, especially for daily wear, here are three ways to wear your liquid foundation and target your skin’s needs.


Mix with moisturiser

Wear all over

If you have dry skin and no blemishes, this type of coverage will work best for you. Ideally you should invest in a BB cream such as the Ponds White Beauty BB+ Cream. It evens out skin discoloration as well as protects skin from UV rays. In the meanwhile you can mix a pea-sized liquid foundation with a dollop of your daily moisturiser and control the coverage on the problem areas without looking like you’re wearing too much makeup.


Apply only on spots

Wear all over

Sometimes all you need is a foundation to apply only on certain spots, for example enlarged pores or a few blemishes on your cheeks. With a foundation that is the perfect match of your skin tone and blends effortlessly on your skin such as the Lakme 9 to 5 Naturale Foundation Drops, you can pat heavily on problematic areas and lightly elsewhere. This way the foundation will conceal what you want to hide without covering the beautiful areas of your skin. Pat some compact or finishing powder to blend and make everything look even.


Wear all over

Wear all over

A wear all over foundation coverage should be reserved for special occasions where you want to look absolutely flawless or hide those pesky marks. Wearing around a heavy layer of foundation in daylight can make your foundation look cakey. Therefore, save it for events where the focus will be on you or when you’re going for an extreme makeup look. We recommend the Lakme Absolute White Intense Skin Cover Foundation for such looks.
