It's always a great idea to apply sun screen to your face! Your skin will thank you.
Protect! It is super important to apply a primer or sunscreen first to act as a base between your skin and your foundation. Foundation goes on best when your skin is moisturized.
Wait just a minute! Give you skin a minute or two to drink that moisture in!
Get your brush on! Using your hands to apply your makeup is so last decade. Use a foundation brush or sponge to apply product. If you use a sponge, make sure that you store it properly and replace it as needed, as sponges are the perfect breeding ground for grossness. Yuck!
Dot it up! Apply dots of foundation on your nose, chin, cheeks, and forehead. You don't need to apply all over your face, just uneven areas.
Blend, woman, blend! Using your weapon of choice, blend the dots together making sure you don't have that awful line of demarcation! Triple check your jawline and hairline to make sure there isn't an obvious line!
Set! Set all that goodness in with loose powder!
Last Minute Tips!
Keep up with your tools! Both sponges and brushes should be washed regularly and deposed of when they've served their time. I can't say this enough - these makeup tools are PERFECT for storing germs and bacteria that you DON'T wanna be smearing all over your face!
Wanting to try something lighter? Try a tinted moisturizer instead of using foundation!
This should be obvious, but don't sleep in your makeup! Adopting a good hygienic nighttime routine is essential in maintaining a beautiful, clear face!
You don't always need to cover your entire face! Try doing a spot check. Just have uneven-ness in your chin and nose area? Then just apply and blend in those areas and you should be good to go!
