Foundation Application Tips From Aloette
Following the right foundation application tips can help hide problem spots on your skin and leave it glowing and beautiful
With the right foundation application tips, you can mask those unwanted blemishes, freckles or dark spots, especially if you are in a rush to put your makeup on. Use these helpful foundation application tips to get your skin looking clean and clear every time you leave your house.
Foundation Application Tip #1: Before applying any liquid or powder foundation, make sure you clean your face first. Use a gentle face cleanser to remove any dirt or impurities. This will help your foundation glide on smoothly and stay on longer.
Foundation Application Tip #2: The middle finger is generally your weakest digit; use that finger tip to gently pat liquid foundation on the blemish or dark spot.
Foundation Application Tip #3: If you don't like the idea of getting makeup on your finger tips, then use a facial sponge to gently apply liquid foundation.
Foundation Application Tip #4: Wait until liquid foundation is dry before using a makeup brush to apply a foundation powder, like Fresh Finish Loose Powder, evenly over your skin. The powder foundation helps set the liquid foundation and allows it to stay on longer.
Foundation Application Tip #5: Sometimes it is helpful to add a small amount of oil-free face moisturizer, like Clarifying Moisture Balance, to your foundation, especially if you are trying to cover a red spot on your skin. The added moisture helps calm skin.
Once you have applied the foundation to all your problem areas, make sure you double check your skin. In order to be assured that the foundation looks as even as possible, view your face under a natural light source to see if your blemishes are effectively covered.
