Makeup Basics Series - How To Apply Foundation For A Flawless Base!


I’ve seen way too many girl committing serious makeup blunders when it comes to applying foundation! Given that foundation covers our entire face and is a base for the rest of the makeup to be applied, in my opinion – if you cant get the foundation right, well your makeup isn’t ever going to look as great as it potentially can. Following are the top three tips and tricks I’ve learned from experience over the years when it comes to foundations!




Make sure to moisturize beforehand! 

This has to be one of the gravest mistakes girls make – whether it’s applying a serum/moisturizer or a primer – make sure you have something on your skin that the foundation can glide on to! Applying it directly over dry/oily skin with no barrier will not only make it tremendously difficult to apply – it will also make it go patchy within minutes!


Don’t apply too much! 

Now that you have prepped and primed your skin for the actual foundation application, make sure you do not apply too much! It doesn’t matter if your favorite beauty guru uses two full pumps for her face, if you don’t need – don’t apply it, simple as that. I’ve seen young girls pile on foundation even when they don’t need to not only resulting in a cake-y face but also making them look years older than they actually are!


Blending it well!

It doesn’t matter if you prefer a brush to your fingers, or a beauty sponge – as long as you take your time blending the foundation, you’re safe. There’s nothing more horrific than foundation on your face that has just been slathered on and not blended well. Take your time, and make sure you blend the foundation in areas like the hair line, near the ears and down your chin – it will truly make a world of difference!
