Easy Foundation Hacks For Flawless Application

No-Makeup look does sound easy, but unless you have an exemplary diet, a 28-step skin-care routine, or some seriously smug genes, it's pretty hard to make skin look deliciously fresh, dewy, and notably “natural” without foundation giving the game away. Hence, When you're looking to sport a makeup trend, it's important to have a well-set base. Without that, even the most natural or in-vogue makeup trends can look tacky and unappealing.

The foundation without any doubt is one of the most important elements in a makeup routine. Using a foundation that complements your skin and using it correctly can really take your entire look to a higher level. On the other hand, if it turns gray, cakey, or oily, this simply ruins your entire look.  Therefore in order to help you ace your next makeup look, we have come up with some easy-to-follow beauty tips and tricks to help you get the most flawless foundation application ever! These hacks will make your skin look great all day long! 

Prep is the key!

Prep is the key!

First and foremost, a primer is essential to apply before your foundation. Good makeup always starts with a great skincare regime. The better hydrated your skin is, the less likely your makeup will look cakey. Furthermore, it reduces the appearance of your pores, which is one of the biggest skin issues a lot of girls face. In addition to that, if you have oily skin the primer will help make your pores less visible, whereas, for girls with dry skin, it helps you avoid that cakey look we get sometimes. After cleansing and toning, prep your skin with essence to add a surge of moisture and finish with a moisturizer. You can even use hydrating mask sheets in order to prep your skin for a flawless foundation application.

Call To Action

Use a Dampened Beauty Sponge

Using a dampened beauty blender while applying your foundation, will help you blend your foundation much more easily, giving you a much smoother finish. Additionally, this will help you even out the foundation on your face, so you won’t get a cakey look.

Here’s how you can do it: Wet your clean beauty sponge slightly under tap water, squish off the excess water and wrap it in tissue paper so it can absorb the extra moisture, and then use it to blend your foundation! 

Tip: While shopping for beauty sponges, make sure they are fluffy and soft in order to get the best results.

Translucent Powder is a savior!

When you use liquid concealers and foundations, they tend to crease and create harsh lines within a few minutes of application. One way to combat this issue is by using the baking technique. To do so, apply translucent powder under your eyes after you’re done with the base. Let the powder sit for 5-10 min, then wipe it off using a simple powder brush, and You’re done! 

Don’t Forget the Setting Spray

Ladies, this is the key to making your makeup last all day! What it does is set your makeup into place and keep it there, so this is a must-have product!
 

Use a Concealer for Extra Coverage

 If you need more coverage, it can be tempting to just pile on a bunch of foundations. But don't! Instead, find a good full-coverage foundation and concealer. One layer of one of the full-coverage foundations should be enough, then use a concealer to target any areas that still need coverage. Check out our range of full-coverage foundations.

Use your fingers for a Natural Finish

To get a softer finish, apply your foundation with your hands. The warmth of your hands will help the formula melt into your skin. This technique is a firm favorite among makeup artists. First, warm the product between your fingertips, then apply using outward circular motions.

You can either gently pat and blend with your fingers or fine-tune with a damp makeup sponge after working in with your fingers. Don’t forget to blend with your neck!

Last but not the Least: Don’t Forget Your Neck

Don’t forget to blend down your neck! If you don’t want to continue your foundation all the way down your neck, continue it underneath your chin and dust a bronzer or matching powder on your neck instead.

These were some of the easiest tips & tricks for a flawless foundation application. Hope these help you achieve the look of your dreams!
