Steps To Applying Flawless Foundation

Creating a flawless foundation may appear difficult especially after several attempts that will end up with blotches, patches and caking. When you look at magazines, you will see cover girls with full coverage and flawless foundation—no no caking, streaks, or patches. The truth is, there are tips that you can follow to achieve a flawless foundation application:

•Wash your face.
It is always important to have a clean face before applying foundation. Using a good facial cleanser, gently cleanse your face. Continue to work on a lather. Remember to wash and not rub. Rinse your face thoroughly with lukewarm water.

•Apply a toner.
Apply a facial toner after washing your face. It removes the excess dirt from your skin. It also removes the residues from your facial cleanser. It not only freshens up your skin but also balances you skin pH after washing. It is best to chill the toner before use to help close your pores.

•Apply moisturizer.
Facial moisturizers help solve issues such as drying, oiliness, and aging of the skin. Most of the moisturizers out in the market contain organic ingredients that help keep the skin healthy-looking. If you have sensitive skin, it is best to choose a moisturizer that has a label saying “non-comedogenic” and “fragrance-free”. For the blemish-prone skin, experts recommend the use of tinted moisturizer. This type helps even out the skin tone and discretely covers the blemishes of the skin. Apply a hefty amount of moisturizer. This is good for the skin since it re-hydrates the face and brings back the lost moisture due to facial cleansing and chemical exposure. Be sure to apply the moisturizer all over the face and the neck. Let it stand for about ten minutes before proceeding to the next step.

•Apply primer.
Apply a primer over your face. This serves as a makeup base for smoother application of make up. Primer can help prolong your makeup application. The advanced formulation of makeup primers helps treat, protect and smooth the skin. It also helps in fighting off the appearance of wrinkles caused by sun exposure and aging. Best buys are those that contain botanical extracts that help diminish redness and blemishes. Some primers also contain sunscreen protection to protect the skin from the harmful UV rays emitted by the sun.

•Choose a foundation.
Select a foundation that is suited to your skin tone. Try on at least three different tones on the back of your hand to determine the best foundation that suits your skin. Apply a small streak from the lower cheek to the upper cheek evenly using a dabbing motion.

•Foundation application.
After choosing the best foundation tone, you can now proceed to coverage. Apply a quarter cent-amount of foundation at the back of your hand. Dip a damp makeup sponge or foundation brush into the foundation. Make sure to keep both sides coated. Apply the makeup in dots over your forehead, cheeks, chin and neck. Blend in an outward motion working toward the hairline and jaw line. Use gentle outward strokes. Finish off by brushing some loose powder over the face and neck.

For a slightly sun-kissed look, apply a hint of bronzer over the cheeks, chin and forehead. Applying your makeup foundation using these methods could help you achieve a flawless look.

MUFE PRO FINISH MULTI USE POWDER FOUNDATION REVIEW

I can’t recall the last time I used a powder foundation, when I first started to get acne I wanted a fuller coverage and it’s only recently now I am left with just a few scars I have been reaching for some lighter bases and so when I was given the chance to test out the Makeup Forever Pro Finish Multi Use Powder Foundation* I was excited to say the least but what you are probably wondering is, is it any good?

My Thoughts On MUFE PRO FINISH Multi Use Powder Foundation:

Now this powder is marketed as a product that you as the user can control the amount of coverage you want, as this foundation powder can be used either wet or dry the finish and coverage is different on both. The wet version gives you a more sheer coverage with a lovely dewy finish and the dry version gives you a fuller coverage with a matte finish. However in terms of coverage this powder is on the light side,  it covers what it needs to and that’s that. If you are one who likes to cover all blemishes etc this isn’t for you and for someone like me it won’t cover your acne scaring that well but that being said I love this powder.

The first reason I really like this product is the texture. This powder has an almost creamy like texture and when it goes on the skin it just leaves it silky smooth. I have uneven skin tone and this powder seems to just smooth all that out effortlessly. Another reason is the ease of use, like I mentioned I haven’t used a powder foundation in a long time and just being able to sweep this over the skin and getting it to cover the bare minimal and making my face acceptable to face the public is so impressive.
