If you’re like me, foundation is part of your everyday makeup routine. There are 3 no no’s you need to keep in mind when applying foundation! Read on to find out what they are. 

1. Find the right match: Forget matching your foundation to the tops of your hands or bottoms of your wrists. The best way to find the right color is by applying a small amount to your neck or jaw line. By applying the foundation to your jaw line, it should disappear perfectly on your neck. Our faces and necks are slightly lighter than the rest of our body so make sure to match the foundation correctly. And that, my dears, is how you know if you found the right match for your skin tone!

2. Use either foundation or concealer: It’s your choice! The fact is that if you are applying both, your face will look cakey and it causes breakouts! Wearing too much coverage causes clogged pores, which is no good! You want to have natural looking makeup without covering your face in makeup. What some people do instead is replace concealer with translucent blemish powder. It is much lighter and won’t clog your pores!

3. Say hasta la vista to powder foundation:  Powder foundation will not give you a flawless natural look. The bad thing about powder foundation is that it only stays on for a few hours, and then fades off.  Another downfall is that it fades into the creases of your face, which brings out the look of wrinkles! The easy solution? Swap your powder foundation to liquid. Liquid helps achieve that smooth clear look and stays on almost all day!

 

Hope these tips help!
