Applying your foundation in different weather and on different skin tones is one big issue that every person with each skin type has an issue with. Which product to apply, when to apply and how to apply is the biggest concern one could ever deal with when it comes to makeup, but do you know there are methods and techniques that could actually change the whole makeup game in no time? Read below to learn and achieve the best foundation regimen at home without needing a professional makeup artist.

For this look all you have to do is:

  1. Cleanse, tone and moisturize your face before applying any makeup product
  2. Remove all the residue left with a cotton ball
  3. Start your makeup routine by first applying a primer all over your face before the foundation, make sure you choose the right primer for the right skin type.
  4. Apply the foundation next starting from your forehead down till your collar bone and don’t forget your ears, you don’t want a different skin tone on different areas.
  5. Apply the concealer next on the high points of your face to highlight the face. The best areas to apply a concealer are the under eyes, the bridge of your nose, the lower chin and the t- zone.
  6. To set the foundation and the concealer the last step you need to do is set it with a makeup setting powder, lightly dab the powder with a big fluffy brush and buff it all over the face or on the areas where you have smile line or fine lines or even wrinkles.
  7. To even make it better you can use a makeup setting spray before applying the powder and after applying the powder as well and fan your face with the help of your hands as fast as you can, across your face.
