There is nothing that can ruin a good makeup look faster than creasing foundation. If you don’t prep your skin well before applying foundation, the product will settle into your fine lines and wrinkles and make them more promi… yikes! But worry not, we have a simple makeup hack that will stop your foundation from creasing, especially around the mouth and eyes. Take a look…

creasing foundation hack

Step 01: Moisturise: One of the main reasons why your foundation might crease is because of dry skin around the mouth and eyes. Use a lightweight formula like the Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Oil-in-Creme to hydrate your skin without making it greasy

Step 02: Use a gel-based primer: Apply a gel-based primer like the Lakme Absolute Under Cover Gel Face Primer to fill in your pores, fine lines and wrinkles, and give your foundation a smooth, even base to glide over

Step 03: Go over your problem areas with an eyeshadow primer: This is where the magic lies! With a flat brush, apply an eyeshadow primer to just your problem areas, like around your mouth and over the crow’s feet around your eyes. Using your fingers, pat the product in gently. An eyeshadow primer is formulated specifically to stop your eyeshadow from creasing and works equally well on other parts of your face as well.

Step 04: Follow up with a translucent powder: The trick of layering a translucent powder BEFORE applying your foundation has been promoted by many beauty gurus. Do the same to stop your foundation from creasing as well. The Lakme 9 to 5 Naturale Finishing Powder stops the oiliness from breaking down your foundation and makes it last for longer hours.

Step 05: Apply your foundation: Once you’re done taking care of the creases, apply your foundation the usual way. Silicone-based options like the Lakme Perfecting Liquid Foundation, applied with kabuki brushes are perfect for giving you an enviable creaseless base!
