How To Apply Foundation Perfectly

Foundation is a necessity in every urban woman’s makeup vanity. This magic product not just evens out your skin’s complexion but also conceals flaws. A good foundation is one which is infused with SPF and hydrating properties to give you a non-cakey appearance. Use shade cards to pick one that suits your skin tone the best.

Applying foundation as a base to other complex makeup products can smoothen your skin’s texture while giving it a flawless and fine finish.

How To Apply Foundation: Step-By-Step Tutorial

Foundations are formulated in different textures, including liquid, powder and cream base. It is important to know which type of foundation you should use on your skin and the techniques you can use to apply it. We are here to serve the purpose with our guide that will help you apply foundation like a pro. Here we have covered this amazing blog where we have mentioned how you can exfoliate your face at home naturally.

Step 1: Cleanse And Prep

Cleanse And Prep

Any makeup routine starts with a gentle CTM (cleansing, toning and moisturizing). Commence with washing your face with a mild cleanser to remove all the dirt, impurities and leftover makeup. Use a toner thereafter to smoothen your skin’s texture. Add the final glow with a rich cream infused with SPF to protect your skin from sun damage. Together, this will create a clean slate for applying makeup.

Step 2: Apply Foundation

Apply Foundation

You can’t learn how to apply liquid foundation without incorporating the rolling process. Correct your foundation’s consistency and re-blend the ingredient by rolling the bottle between your hands. Do not shake it as it may add bubbles to the foundation.

Take a small amount of the foundation on the back of your hand. Use a brush, sponge or your fingers to dab the foundation on your skin starting from the center. You may use a primer and color corrector before applying the foundation for an even smoother finish.

Step 3: Blend


Blend it outwards towards your neck and hairline focusing on areas around your nose and eyes. Blending in a bouncing motion will better the result.

Step 4: Fine-Tune


If your skin is a victim of ace, scars and redness, use a concealer to cover them. Apply a small amount of the concealer on a sponge and start to blend it in a bouncy motion. This step will give a spotless finish to your skin.

Step 5: Set


Setting your foundation with a powder can make it last longer. Use a fluffy brush to swirl a translucent or matte powder on your face in concentric circles to finish off the base.

Tips To Remember While Using A Foundation

  • Choose the right shade for yourself
  • Apply the foundation using the right makeup tools
  • Apply foundation on eyelids to reduce redness
  • If your skin is acne prone, do not use an oil-based foundation
  • Apply a primer prior using the concealer in case you have oily skin
  • Set your concealer with a powder to make it stay longer
  • Do not use expired products
  • Avoid pulling and rubbing your skin when applying foundation
