Foundation Makeup Step 5 Apply foundation
When applying foundation use a cosmetic sponge - using your fingertips can result in an uneven, greasy finish. Dampen the sponge first squeezing out the excess moisture - this will make foundation application easier and prevent the sponge from soaking up too much foundation. Place a small amount of foundation on the back of one hand. Dip your makeup sponge into it. Apply foundation by dotting it on your forehead, cheeks, chin and nose and then blend each one with your sponge. Blend out to your hair and jaw line until the foundation vanishes. Pay special attention to blending around the nose, mouth and jaw line. When applying foundation, slightly rubbing toward the neck area helps create less of a line around the face!
Foundation Makeup Tip: Be sure to blend, blend, and blend. Special areas to watch are the hair and jaw line. And be sure that your face isn't one color and your neck another.
Foundation Makeup Tip: When putting on foundation, always do it in a bright room or by a window. This way, you can see what hasn't been blended-in properly.
Foundation Makeup Step 6 Set the foundation with powder
This is an optional step that you may find beneficial. A light brushing of powder on your foundation sets the foundation making it longer lasting. If oil surfaces during the day, blot the area with a tissue then apply a light dusting of powder. Always apply powder to set make-up and reapply throughout the day to prevent shine.
Makeup Tip: The light dusting of powder also helps with
eye shadow application and also makes the eye shadow longer lasting.
