How to Apply Foundation Makeup Flawlessly

When it comes to foundation makeup, the application technique is just as important if not more so then the formula that you are using. This beauty product's main reason for being part of your routine is to make your complexion look smooth and even. You are supposed to have a flawless look after you are done applying it. This can only happen if you use the best technique possible.


One thing to remember when you are going to use this process to apply foundation makeup, you need to have a great color match. There is no amount of blending that can make a formula that is not matched well to your skin tone look good.


Step One


Wash and dry your face completely. Apply your daily moisturizer to your skin. Many women do not realize that their skin care routine is actually the beginning of their application of their foundation makeup. You need to have clean and well moisturized skin to start with so that the formula that you are using will glide on easily. You are going to want to wait a couple of minutes after this step to allow your moisturizer to dry and be absorbed by the skin.


Step Two


Take a cotton swab and dip it into the product that you have chosen to use. The cotton swab is going to prevent you from contaminating your bottle of foundation makeup with dirt and debris. It is important to use a clean cotton swab any time that you want to get more product out.


Step Three


Dab some of the product on your forehead, each of your cheeks, your nose, and on your chin. This is more then enough liquid to cover the face for most women. If you are someone that likes a bit more coverage, you can add more to the skin later on as you see what type of coverage that you are getting from the amount that you just applied.


Step Four


You can either use a makeup sponge or a foundation brush for this next step. With a light upward motion start to blend and smooth out the foundation makeup that you have put on your skin. It is important to make sure that you get the liquid to every part of your face as you are blending it out.


Step Five


Feather or blend the edges of the foundation makeup that you are applying along your jaw line. This will make sure that there is a gradual change from your face where the product is to your neck where it is not.


Step Six


Take a large powder brush and lightly dust your face with a translucent face powder. This final step for how to apply foundation makeup will set your look into place so that it stays as you go through your day.
