No one ever started using foundation and perfected a flawless base on day one. We all long for that flawless look but it’s not always easy to achieve no matter what products you use. With some practice and a few easy methods, that desired look can become an easy result of your daily makeup routine.
Use a damp sponge
Be it Beauty Blender, Real Techniques Complexion Sponge or any old makeup sponge, make it damp. It’s so much easier to create an even coverage with a damp sponge. Using a damp sponge will also take away any unnecessary excess leaving your face looking more natural.
Don’t be gentle
You may be thinking that really working a sponge into your face is a guaranteed path to unwanted spots. This is apparently a total myth and since adapting this technique myself, the overall condition of my skin has seen no differences. Don’t be afraid to really push down onto that sponge as this will leave foundation looking more desirable and light. No cakey formula for me thank you very much!
Set with powder
Don’t let your effort go to waste, you want that base to last don’t you? Use a loose setting powder to set necessary areas by applying to the Tzone. Best applied with a damp sponge, leave to work it’s magic and brush away. This little addition will keep you looking fresher for longer.
Grab your foundation and sponge and let’s get started.
