HOW TO APPLY PERFECT FOUNDATION

‘A perfect painting needs a perfect canvas’. So if we consider our makeup as painting then a perfect base is our canvas. That means a proper base makeup has to be perfectly done and it should be neat. Getting a perfect foundation base is not that easy (neither the toughest battle 😀 ). It consists of several steps and each steps are important.
When I have started doing makeup, it was a true struggle to achieve the perfect foundation base. Sometimes it glided down from the skin, again sometime it wouldn’t blend properly. So I researched a lot, learned a lot and most importantly tried a lot. But finally I got to know the exact process to apply foundation perfectly. Over the time I realised the importance of each steps to get the flawless base makeup. Now, in this post I’m sharing with you the entire guidelines to apply foundation perfectly and here’re the steps:

1. Cleansing – The first and most important step is to clean your face properly. In this step I would recommend to do ‘Two- Step’ cleansing. Firstly use any oil based cleanser to clean out all the dirt from core of the skin and after that use a water based or foam based cleanser to clean the upper layer of the skin. This process will make your skin smooth and soft.

2. Exfoliating – After cleansing the face, the next step is exfoliation. If you do shave your face then you can easily go ahead with that in this step because shaving is a good exfoliation of skin. But if you don’t like to shave then take generous amount of a mild face scrubber and massage for 2 to 3 minutes and wash it off.

3. Toning – Exfoliation makes skin pores open. So in this step all we need to do is to apply toner. Just dab the toner onto the face using cotton pads and let it for 3 to 4 minutes.

4. Sheet Mask Application – After toning our face we will apply sheer mask. Choose the correct mask according to your skin type and keep it for 15 to 20 minutes. After that take out the sheet mask and massage the serum on the face. This step is very important as this will give a nice natural radiance to the skin and it will also help to stay the makeup for longest time.

5. Moisturising – Next is moisturising. You need to keep your skin much hydrated and moistured to eat the makeup properly. So in this step apply a good eye cream and moisturising cream on the face and massage for 2 to 3 minutes. You can also mix your strobe cream with moisturising cream and apply it. It will make your skin glowing. Don’t forget to apply lip balm to the lips because chapped lips can destroy you entire makeup.

6. Primer Application – Now proceeding to the makeup part from skincare, this step is to apply primer. Apply the primer all over your face and leave it for around 5 minutes. It will help to get the perfect photo finish makeup base and also help to stay the makeup on place for long time.

7. Colour Correction – Then we will colour correct all the areas of our face where we need. Apply colour correctors according to the skin issues. You can read the entire guidelines on colour correction here.

9. Blending – Now we will blend it properly. You can blend it with a foundation brush or buffing brush. But for me a blending sponge works the best. Although sponges eat some amount of foundation but gives a very nice finish of foundation.

10. Concealer – Now when we have already applied foundation, it’s time for concealer. Apply it on your dark circles, hyper pigmented areas, scars and areas where you want to highlight. Then you can apply some loose powder on the areas where you feel oily (if you have dry skin then no need to use loose powder) and your base is perfectly done.

11. Loose Powder – Apply generous amount of loose powder on those area where you feel your skin gets oily the most. Under eye area, beside nose and lips. it will help the foundation to stay for longer time.

 

 

I hope now you have a fair idea about how to apply foundation perfectly. Remember, skin care is equally important for base makeup. So go ahead and conquer your makeup! 🙂 🙂 .
