No make-up bag is complete without the perfect foundation to even out your skintone and make your skin look totally flawless.
But you have to find the right foundation and apply it correctly in order to achieve those desirable results. Whether you have dry skin
or oily skin
, or prefer powder foundations
, make sure you find the perfect foundation for your skin tone.
Once you’ve found your perfect coverage, it’s time to learn how to apply foundation
properly. And here to teach you how is make-up guru Bobbi Brown
. As a professional make-up artist, founder of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics and author of eight books about make-up and beauty, who better to teach you everything you need to know about applying foundation?
Just follow these five easy steps, and a flawless complexion
will be yours.
Before you start, remember to clean your face and moisturise properly. Foundation will glide on much more smoothly on a well-hydrated surface (and you’ll avoid that dreaded cakey look!).
Now you’re ready. The important thing to remember is that you don’t want your foundation to be noticeable. As Bobbi Brown says, 'The right foundation will make you look like you’re not wearing any foundation at all.'
So the first step for how to apply foundation
like a pro is selecting the right one. Go the the beauty counter and swipe a few different shades on your face to choose a colour. Make sure you do this in daylight, where you can really see what the colours look like on your face. The correct foundation for you will look like your natural skin tone. Don’t be tempted to go one shade lighter or darker – this will just end up looking fake!
