Knowing how to blend foundation makeup is the most important step in applying makeup to your face. Foundation makeup serves as a base, and proper blending is necessary for natural-looking coverage. Your fingertips can serve as the best tool to correctly apply foundation makeup.
Use your fingertips to gently smooth on foundation under the eyes.
Apply foundation to your forehead by making side-to-side strokes then blend up and down to fully cover your forehead.
Dot each cheek with foundation then blend out to the hairline. Sweep your fingertips in toward the nose and then blend downward.
Put a small amount of foundation on your nose and blend up and down then over the sides of your nose.
Make small side-to-side strokes to blend foundation on your chin then move up and down.
Smooth your fingertips along each area of your face and spread your foundation makeup evenly to provide a level, natural surface for your powder.
Tips & Warnings
Shake your liquid foundation very well before application and use small amounts of foundation on your fingertips to apply.
Apply foundation to your eyelids to hide discoloration.
Focus on the center of your face and use less foundation and powder around the edge of your face and hairline.
Do not use concealer under your eyes. Apply foundation under your eyes for a more natural look.
Avoid sponges as they absorb more foundation than necessary. Your fingers are the best blending tool you own.
