Perfect Foundation

Don't you just hate when your foundation turns out cakey, splotchy, and just uneven?  I know I do and we all have those days every once in a while.  Here are some helpful tips to get perfect foundation all the time.

1. Before applying your liquid or powder foundation, you want to clean your face by using a gentle face cleanser to remove any dirt or impurities from your face.  By doing this your foundation with go on smoothly and stay on longer.

2.When applying liquid foundation on a blemish or dark spot, you want to use your finger.

3.If you don't want to use your finger to apply your liquid foundation, you want to use a facial sponge to apply the foundation.

4. When putting on powder foundation after liquid foundation, you want to wait until your liquid foundation is completely dry before applying the powder with a makeup brush evenly across your face and blend it out.

5.Sometimes it's a good idea to apply a small amount of oil-free moisturizer to your foundation especially if you are trying to cover a red spot on your skin just to calm your skin. 

6. Once you apply it to your skin double check it to make sure it is completely blended out and is even all over your face and blended down your neck.

7. When double checking, view your face under natural light to make sure your blemishes are evenly and effectively covered as well.

Making sure you have the right foundation for you and making sure it is the right color for you is helpful to covering all problem areas and evening out your skin tone on your face.  I hope these tips were helpful:)
