Flawless Foundation Hacks Every Girl Should know.

1.Don’t skip primer.

Whether you want to blur wrinkles, mattify, minimise the appearance of pores or even out skin tone, primers do this whilst creating a velvety base for make-up and helping it to stay put for longer.

2.Mix your face oil with your foundation.

Try adding a couple of drops of your favourite facial oil to your foundation. It will give you light and dewy coverage. It will also stop your foundation from looking cakey.

3.Apply foundation from the center of your face.

Generally speaking, the most coverage is often needed in the centre of your face. Apply your foundation here first, and blend it out towards your jaw and hairline. This will stop your foundation looking like a mask or draw attention to the baby hairs around your head.

4.Use your finger to press the foundation into your skin.

If you’ve used a brush to apply your foundation, it can often feel like the foundation is just sitting on top of your skin. To make it last all day, use your fingertips afterwards to really press the foundation into your skin and buff out any product build-up.

5.Setting spray to finish.

For a really natural finish, use a setting spray after applying your foundation to bring your skin back to life. If you’re going for a sheer cover, use a rose or charged water – or if you’re after a more HD finish, try a setting spray to keep it in place all day.

The Mistakes You’re Making With Your Beautyblender.

1.You’re using beautyblender dry: The best way to use the Beautyblender is when it is activated and damp and completely wet.The beautyblender  is supposed to be used wet. The damp surface gives you streak-free blending and a dewy finish.

2.You Tried to microwave the germs away: The worst possible thing you can do is put it in the microwave.I don’t think it kills bacteria, it just melts everything.

3.You keep it too long: Even though you clean your sponge every day.The Beauty Blender needs to be replaced every three months. The older it gets, the more likely it will rip or tear.

4.You’re scrubbing it too hard: Our beauty blender  can tear if you have super sharp nails or if you’re pulling the ends too hard when you clean the sponge. Instead, use a gentle squeezing motion. While the sponge is soaking wet, pour the cleaner directly on any soiled spots.

5.You keep it in ziplock bag: When you remove oxygen and light from anything that is moist, you have the opportunity for mold and bacteria to start forming. So a damp beauty blender stuffed in your dark, enclosed makeup bag is a bad idea. Instead, use a breathable mesh or organza bag to transport the sponge when you travel.

Foundation Mistakes You’re Probably making.

.Matching color exactly.

Many women get color matched right to skin tone and are unhappy with the results, since it can end up looking too washed out.In these cases, going for a bit warmer of a tone (one that has yellow or golden undertones).If you’re tan or deeper toned, stay away from pinkish hues that can look obvious on skin in natural light.

 

 

.Concealing with heavy coverage.

Whether it’s discoloration, blemishes, or fine lines that you want to cover, heaping on heavy foundation will actually draw attention to the difference in skin texture.Instead, use primers and highlighters to improve the look of discoloration and fine lines, and spot-blend concealer on blemishes instead of caking on the cover-up all over.

.Using the wrong consistency.

Whatever kind of foundation you use.It should seamlessly blend into skin when you apply it. For dry types, powder formulations can settle into pores and lines, while liquids can look too wet on oily skin.Creamy textures often hit the right note of providing flattering coverage with a natural finish on most.

.Thinking foundation looks aging.

Foundation has a bad rap because it’s been used incorrectly by so many, but don’t be afraid to wear it.The right formula evens out aging issues, like discoloration and pore size, to actually make you appear younger.

 

.Apply everything,everywhere.

The sure way to look like you’re wearing makeup is to apply a blanket of foundation and powder to the face and to over-conceal.Finish with powder only in the center of the face, where it’s truly needed; overdoing it can kill your whole look.
