Foundation Application Technique

It’s amazing how something so simple and easy makes such a huge difference in your foundation application. Sometimes something so obvious can be easily over-looked, but if you think about it, it all makes sense. When you apply foundation, never ever apply it in circular or upwards motion. You are only gonna highlight the peach-fuzz and make the facial hair more visible and prominent than they actually are. Plus they’ll stick out and look very very bad. The technique you should be using is simple, Always make sure you use downwards strokes whilst applying your foundation. Almost like smoothing down your peach-fuzz. You don’t wanna highlight it, you wanna minimize it. So, take some foundation on your finger tips, apply it in the downwards motion, and repeat the process. You will see how different your foundation application will be. It will minimize the appearance of facial hair and also give an even foundation application. Same goes for the powder, always use downwards strokes, especially around cheeks and jaw area.
