Applying foundation might seem the easiest part while doing makeup but it is totally the opposite of what you think. The foundation as the name shows provide a base for the makeup that is why it is called a foundation. If your base is not applied correctly then even if you apply other makeup products like a pro, then nothing will look good on your face.
Here is how to apply foundation perfectly every single time.
- Cleanse and moisturize your Face
If you want to make your foundation look smooth and not cakey, then you need to prepare your face for it. Wash your face properly with any face wash so there is no residue of makeup, oil, or dirt. Now, apply any cream or lotion on your face and let it sit for 5-10 minutes. You can use Venus Face Oil for moisturizing. Your face is ready for the makeup!
- Don’t Forget Primer
If you are someone who doesn’t use a primer, then you are doing it wrong. Always prime your face before applying foundation as it helps to minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines. The primer also helps to make the makeup last longer. Try Venus HD All Matt Primer to reduce shine and control sebum.
- The Application Process
Take a foundation brush and start applying from the center of the face and spread it towards the outer area. Don’t wipe or rub the foundation but gently tab it using fingers, sponge, or brush. Blend the foundation until you don’t see any harsh line and even skin tone. Get your hands on Venus Ultra Foundation for a smooth and natural-looking finish.
- Apply Setting Powder
After you have applied your foundation, it is time to use a setting powder. Use a fluffy makeup brush and swirl it all over the face. This step will help your foundation from sliding around and prevent oil buildup. The Venus HD Loose Powder is best for this job.
