Liquid foundation can be one of the trickiest products to apply. If not applied properly, your makeup can look cakey and ghastly. Here are some tips that can make all the difference in achieving a flawless face.
Step 1: Choose your favorite foundation. Make sure the foundation is right for your skin type and is the correct shade.
Step 2: Prep your skin with a facial primer. The primer will provide a smooth surface to apply the foundation onto and will help keep your makeup in place.
Step 3: Use a dense foundation brush. I personally love the Sigma flat top kabuki brush. It really presses the foundation into the skin for a flawless finish.
Step 4: Squeeze a nickel size amount of foundation onto the back of your hand. Dip the brush into the product. When you apply your foundation it’s best to start in the center of your face as that is where most of the coverage is needed. Dot the foundation on the forehead, chin and nose and lightly buff the foundation into the skin by using small circular motions.
Step 5: Take the foundation on the brush and blend it into your hairline and over the remainder of your face. It’s important to blend the foundation into your hairline as you don’t want to see a blatant change in color. The same goes with making sure that the foundation is blended down into your jawline and neck as well.
Step 6: Apply a loose foundation powder to your face. This will help to set the foundation and reduce the shine.
