Admit it—you’re a diva. You love nothing more than dressing up and looking pretty for any occasion, be it work, a party, or even a fun day of shopping with the gals. You pull out all the stops to make sure you’re well-groomed and styled each time you leave home. But what about your makeup? When it comes to your face, less is always more. If you apply foundation incorrectly, your face can appear cakey, and cakes belong in the kitchen, not on your face. Check out these 3 easy tips to ensure it doesn’t happen to you:
Take Care of Your Skin
Rule 1, the most important. You can do everything in your power to apply foundation in such a way that it looks flawless, but unless your skin is healthy, it’s pointless. No amount of skincare and makeup tips can save you.
Exfoliate, cleanse, tone and moisturise are the 4 mantras for your skincare regimen.
Dirt clogs your pores resulting in makeup that looks blotchy. Exfoliation and cleansing will take care of this. Exfoliating your skin with a gentle scrub will remove some of the dirt and dead skin cells from your face.
After exfoliation, use a good quality cleanser that suits your skin type-normal, dry or oily.
A toner will seal open pores, so particles of dust and dirt can’t seep into it quite as easily.
Once your skin is cleaned up, use a moisturizer to seal in the moisture and prevent your skin from drying out. This will give you a beautiful healthy glow, and will have your skin looking smooth, fresh and supple.
