Makeup Tip | Flawless Foundation

Tip Tuesday! If you watch Tati from Glam Life Guru then you will know what I am talking about. I know I have already shared with you my desire to post as regularly as humanly possible and this is another way I can achieve that. I love makeup and beauty so I spend a lot of time reading and learning about it, not to mention incessantly watching tutorials. Therefore, you can expect regular posts with neat little tips and tricks to make your makeup look better and last longer. 

Today's tip is about foundation. I have Indian skin (which I am sure you all know by now) which means it is often difficult for me to find a perfect match in foundation in spite of there sometimes being even forty shades available. The biggest makeup mistake that could possibly happen is mask syndrome, you do not want to look like you have a mask of makeup on. 

To avoid mask syndrome, make sure you are matching your foundation to your neck. If like me you struggle to find your perfect shade even with high-end brands, it might be worthwhile to get two foundations that are suited to your skin type in two different shades. These shades will be the one closest to your skin tone, one will be too light and the other will be too dark. With these two shades you can mix them to create your perfect foundation. 

If your neck is a completely different shade to your face, use a traditional flat foundation brush and paint the foundation onto your foundation. Then using a dampened beauty blender, or any damp makeup sponge, dab over the face and neck to blend the foundation into the skin, This will pick up any excess makeup so it doesn't leave a cakey finish. 

If your neck and face are similar, or the same, you can use a buffing or stippling brush for a lighter coverage. In addition, your fingers are a great tool for applying face products as well because they warm the product making it blend easier. This will help your skin show through for a more natural look. If you have oily skin remember to powder, you can use your beauty blender for this as well. Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed this post. Leave a comment below sharing your favourite method of applying your foundation, or just your favourite foundation. Take care. 

Love ♥
