Not everyone is lucky enough to have beautiful, skin with an even tone. There are few people who can wake up in the morning and roll out of bed, with a flawless complexion. Most of us have various skin imperfections, like blotchiness or a dull complexion, even if you follow various skin care tips and regimes/routines. But luckily there are ways to make it appear like one has that perfect skin, and below are our suggestions on how to achieve that with three cosmetics:
The very first step is to wash your face. If you have acne, or other skin problems, use the appropriate cleanser, recommended by a dermatologist. If you have skin with only a few blemishes, use a light, gentle cleanser. Wash your face, rinse with cold water and then lightly apply a moisturizer.
This will give your face the priming it needs before you begin applying makeup. In fact, using moisturizer will actually help the makeup to last longer. If you have oily skin, use an oil-free cleanser and oil-free moisturizer, and you may wish to stick with a powder foundation, instead of liquid, to avoid extra shine.
Before we discuss the application, we want to make sure that you have the right color for your skin tone. Here are our suggestions:
Many people wonder what is the right way to apply foundation?
The answer: there are many ways to apply it. You may want to try out these different techniques to see which one works best for you and which you are most comfortable using. One way to apply foundation is to use a cosmetics sponge, like the round disk-like sponges or the wedge-shaped sponges. For applying it all over, try the round sponge for more even coverage. On the back of your hand, put a small amount of makeup, and then dab the sponge in, before applying it to your face.
Another way to apply it is by using your hand. Do this by spreading the foundation over the palm of your hand, and then patting your skin. After you have lightly applied it over your face, use the wedge sponge to blend it in gently. Blend it very softly so that you don’t pull on your skin. If you are having any trouble blending it in, or you want to thin out the coverage, dampen the sponge, just slightly and this will help.
If you are wondering when to apply concealer, you should do that after you have applied the foundation. With the concealer, focus on blemishes, acne, under-eye circles or discolorations. Simply dab a little bit on the problem area and blend it in softly with a wedge-shaped sponge.
After you have applied both foundation and concealer, use a little bit of powder on the areas where your skin tends to get oily, like around the nose, on the forehead and chin. You need to apply powder right after applying both to make sure that the makeup sets and does not rub off. To make your makeup look extra special for evenings, mix just a little bit of shimmer with your powder and apply it on areas like your cheekbones, shoulders and underneath your eyebrows.
