Can you just not figure out, how that neighbour of yours looked so gorgeous in that bland dress, with you not being able to make the cut? Well, it could just be the correct application of foundation!
Yes – the trickiest of makeup that could give you a flawless or extremely flawed skin. Are you now realizing that maybe the shade you chose was not up to the mark with that peach dress of yours?
Well, with a slew of parties awaiting this New Year, do make it a point to not miss out on some of the most important pointers while you do up that pretty little face of yours!
Foundation mistakes – Better get your base right!
The mistake that most of you make and get your face all puffed up!! Well, ladies, before you get your foundation pack, do know your skin type. For the oh-so-oily skin ladies, a foundation with oil absorbing formula is what you need while the drier type skin, a hydrating foundation is your best bet!
What if you have sensitive skin or belong to the summer- oily winter- dry type, then make sure you choose a foundation with a mineral base that does not have any traces of dye or preservatives in it. This will help to keep your skin away from rashes.
Also, make sure you test the colour of your foundation away from the lights of the shop, in areas like jawline and nose. This will help give you the correct combination, and you will be able to choose the perfect colour for yourself.
Have you set your makeup well?
Choosing an ideal makeup setting spray is also important. This (which most of you tend to ignore), will help in enhancing your foundation base and on the whole setting your makeup.
What about your primer?
Primer – after you are done with your spray, a silicone base type primer can be your ultimate touchstone. This helps in setting your make-up in the correct manner and gives you an inherent glow.
Too much – won’t give a better glow to your skin!
Ladies – please get this correct that too much can really be ‘too much’! Don’t cake your whole face with this paint, rather apply only a thin lining that helps to cover the blemishes well and gives you that perfect look.
What if you have your face caked already? Just swipe your face with a damp cloth and you are ready to go!
Moisturizer? Did it dry out?
The moisturizer helps to give your skin the much-needed hydration. But a combo of foundation and moisturizer can result in a mess! So, just let your skin enjoy its inner nutrition before your foundation gives you that outer glory!
Get an applying brush:
Your boyfriend or husband may pamper you with golden words as – ‘your fingers can work magic’ but your foundation doesn’t really appreciate it!! A brush or a damp sponge is what you need for getting a fine and beautiful effect on your skin.
Also, when you are applying this on your neck, you have to make sure that its tone is comparatively lighter than your face. This will enhance the effect on your skin, and give you the required glow!
Your concealer comes next!
Concealer first, foundation next – if that is the routine then switch it now itself. With concealer already there on your skin, putting the correct amount of foundation is not possible. Hence, conceal those dark circles with a pointed brush after you have applied the foundation – for just the perfect blend.
Just 7 steps to correct application of foundation – and you are ready to be touted as the next ‘party queen’! What are you waiting for ladies?? Pick up the correct brand and be THE WOMAN!
