Just step into the cosmetics aisle of any department or drug store, and you’ll find there’s just about as many different foundations as there are ways to apply it. Whether you’re new to using makeup or you’ve done so for years, applying foundation can sometimes seem like a war zone. You must have a strategy that will work once you’ve paired your skin tones with the right shade of foundation. In this week’s blog, Salon Sora will help you win the war against your foundation that will help your skin to look it’s best.
Old School, isn’t so old. After washing your face thoroughly and before applying your toner, use an ice cube to help minimize pores. This step is perfect before applying a primer and will help the products go on with a smoother finish.
Don’t go for the White Racoon Effect! Highlighters and Concealers are excellent tools for contouring the face. However, if they aren’t applied correctly, you could look like a raccoon with white eyes! As we learned from the Kardashians, concealers in different shades create a great base and show off bone structure avoiding unwanted ghostly looks.
Before applying mist the face and your brush with some mineral water. Once the water starts to dry, dab your primer on and blend well with a brush. Beauty blenders work well too. This method should allow you the maximum coverage with the most minimum work.
When you live in a place like South Florida, it’s important always to wear foundation with a good sunscreen. What many people don’t know is there are ingredients in sunscreen that can help moisturize but also prevent ‘crepey’ skin. Another benefit that sunscreen has is its ability to hydrate dry eyelids. Apply sunscreen or opt for foundations with high SPF factors. This method will not only make your foundation look healthy but will also protect your skin from radicals and sun rays.
Depending on the weather once you’ve applied your foundation use a setting spray or face powder to finish. If it’s humid, we suggest a setting spray if it’s dry out or you’ll be indoors mostly, then powder is suitable. South Floridians should adjust according to the elements.
In closing, most of these methods are going to be a trial and error solution. Don’t worry; this is common amongst the civilian makeup artists everywhere. If you’re having a difficult time figuring out the most efficient ways to wear your foundation, spend a day with one of our cosmetics experts. They can teach you what will look best for your skin.
