How to Flawless Foundation Application

One of my most asked question is “how do I get flawless foundation application?”. There are so many types of foundations it actually can be tricky to pick one that works for you, but the truth is, it’s not just about the foundation. Using only foundation is not going to give you the results you want. There’re a lot of things that go in to achieving a flawless foundation application. Foundation is a base to any makeup products you put on top, it can either make your skin look youthful and glowing or dull and cakey.

Prep your Skin

It’s not just about the foundation you use. If your skin is exfoliated and well moisturized most foundations for your skin type will work for you. Make sure you exfoliate your skin twice or thrice a week. Take any dry and dead skin cells off because not only it’s gonna make your skin look better without makeup, but also there’ll be no dry dead skin patches for your foundation to cling on to. Any gentle facial scrub would do the trick. Secondly Moisturization is the key! I can’t emphasis enough. Don’t go straight into foundation application after washing your face. Always follow your skincare regimen and give it a while to sink in before applying foundation.

Extra Help

If you have overly oily or dry skin, or you’ve acne prone skin. Give your skin the extra help it requires. Use a hydrating face mask every now and then, replace your regular moisturizer with moisturizer for acne prone ,oily , or dry skin, whatever the case is. Use a facial mist that caters your skin needs, or a primer. I keep primers for special occasions, but if you really want a flawless foundation application, a primer is the easiest and quickest way to achieve the look. There’re pore minimizing, hydrating, mattifying, luminizing, color correcting primers. There’re so many to options. Use them.

Perfect Foundation

Finding your perfect foundation can be tricky. But if you’re well aware of your skin type, and skin tone it’s not as difficult as you think. Go to the store test out different foundations, or take the help from the lady on the counter, ask for foundation samples, or use the ones you get with your purchase and find the perfect formulation that works for you, and make sure you choose the right shade. Try it out on your jawline and make sure it blends in with your face and neckline and makes everything look even.

Right tools

Use the right tools. My personal favorite is beauty blender. But a buffing brush works fine too. Right tools makes a world of a difference. And helps your foundation look very natural and flawless on the skin. Using right tools will make sure your foundation doesn’t look streaky or go patchy or uneven.

Less is more

Start with a light layer. Using a lot of product at once only makes your face look cakey. Always go for really thin layers and build the coverage where it’s required. After your foundation application,use a concealer if you need to cover up any blemishes or “imperfections”. If you use concealer first, firstly it’ll move around while you buff your foundation in the skin, and secondly it’ll just look cake and won’t cover the blemish either.

Setting Powder Application

After you follow all those steps you’ll see your foundation will look absolutely stunning, so don’t destroy it with excessive setting powder. Of course you need to set everything in place, but again work in light layers, and only where it’s required. If you’ve very oily skin and setting your foundation everywhere is a must, opt for luminous setting powders.

Setting Spray

Setting sprays are a great way to make your foundation look as natural as possible and it keeps your makeup looking flawless all day long.

  1. Hy zunaira hru ? I just simply love ur blogs i wanted to ask i have a dry skin specially in winters therw is always a dry patch here and there on my skin bcz i dnt use mouisteuzer i think it makes my face too dull i dnt know why i end up nt applying it can u just recoment me a good moisturizer for me ill be very thankful and yes i used bodyshop seaweed mouistizing day cream that is nt so bad but i just dnt give complete results like even applying that i can see dry patches and i think that doesnt suits me either pllzzz help love :)

    1. Try Clinique Moisture Surge Intense, it’s great for dry and sensitive skin. Also Exfoliate your skin once or twice a week and use GlamGlow Thristy mud mask twice a week, or more if needed + Avoid using setting powder where you can.
      hope that helps :)

      1. Thanks it did help me can u tell something budget friendly cuz clinque product are quite expensive zbd not even easily available in my city so if any alternative of clinique plus u said dnt use powder but i only use a little bit powder on daily basis bcz foundation daily isnt my cup of tea so i just apply powder and lipistick and i am ready so what should be my alternative for winters of u could tell if not powder then tell something light for daily use plus do tell the brand that i should use for winters and gets result?? Thnku

        1. if you have dry skin I don’t think it’s a good idea to use powder foundation anyway, it doesn’t work well for dry skin. I personally like Maybelline and Garnier BB cream, and they both are affordable. Use a bb cream or tinted moisturizer instead. Garnier Moisture rescue is a good affordable alternative to clinique moisture surge. Hope that helps :)

  2. Alrite thanku it helped ill use maybelline bb cream for daily use plus moistruizer of garnier or if clinque available here ill try to grab that thnku love :)
