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.
