Give Me Perfect Skin
The art of applying foundation is about applying it to where it is needed, not necessarily all over. The result is a less heavy and natural appearance.
Ensure the color of your foundation matches your skin tone perfectly. When choosing color, apply a little on the middle of your cheek and blend it out. If it disappears you know you have a winner. Choose a concealer that is a shade lighter.
If using tools, remember to clean and sanitize them often or use disposable latex sponges.
If using hands, remember the body heat breaks down the foundation.
Do not brush hard or drah on your face. If done repeatedly it wears the skin. For gentlest and best coverage application mode, stipple not wipe.
You can either apply foundation before or after applying eye makeup. Often the foundation will bring out your eye color before applying any eye makeup.
There are multiple tools to use, it all depends on what feels comfortable on your skin but most importantly does the job well!
Types of Tools
Good with cream and liquid foundation.
It is good for all types of foundation and for cream blushers. Use like a buffer brush (see below).
A more luxurious type of brush due to being non-synthetic. Feels great on the skin. Used with liquid or cream foundation.
These are soft on skin, hygenic (disposable) and some (see above) have clean cut edges for more precise application. Often easy to tear apart to creating the shape you wish. Best for cream, liquid foundations and cream blushers.
The ultimate buffer brush. Best for powder foundations such as Bare Minerals foundations. To buff: use the brush in circular movements gently layering the foundation.
Aim: Make the foundation a part of your skin.
