Of all the mistakes you can make while putting on your makeover, messing up your base is the worst.
Blending and setting your foundation perfectly is an art. It takes much time, practice, and patience to get that flawless-looking skin with makeup products. From picking the right tool and makeup to treating your skin right, there is no shortcut to creating a flawless makeup base.
Here are some general steps you must follow to achieve a flawless makeup look.
Step 1: Cleanse, tone and moisturise
Cleanse, tone, and moisturise are the three cardinal principles of having healthy, moisturised skin. Your makeup will look spotty and uneven if you have dry skin. So, to perfect your base, you must first begin by performing your fundamental CTM program.
First, cleanse your skin with a gentle cleanser without soap to remove all the impurities and dirt from your skin. After that, apply any face toner you like to clean your face further and tighten the pores.
After one or two minutes, apply a moisturiser according to your skin type to hydrate and moisturise your skin. Follow this routine regularly for the best skin results.
Step 2: Priming
After preparing your skin with step one, you need to layer up your skin with a primer. You can go for any gel-based primer, as those are lightweight and can be blended easily on your skin.
Primer gives your skin a canvas to apply foundation. It also helps to last your makeover for an extended period. Choose any primer that your skin will suit well.
Step 3: Applying foundation
The exciting phase is about to begin, which is applying your foundation. Apply a perfect cover foundation with maximum coverage to your face and neck.
Using a foundation brush or a damp beauty sponge, the foundation should be blended outwards toward your ears. You can make a flawless, streak-free base by doing this.
You don't have to worry about selecting the right foundation shade because it has several hues that complement all Asian skin tones.
Step 4: Concealing dark spots and areas
Still, have stubborn blemishes peeking through? You need an excellent concealer to cover up all those imperfections and black patches. The concealer comes in various hues and may help you hide your imperfections, dark circles, and discolouration while shielding your skin from sun damage. Apply it only where you need extra coverage, such as on spots, blemishes, and the area around your eyes.
Step 5: Using a setting powder
The final step only requires applying a small layer of translucent setting powder. The powder helps the base last longer by helping to set the foundation and remove extra makeup for a more natural look. To set your base, take a large fluffy brush, swirl it in the tub, and softly brush it over your entire face.
Try the popular K-beauty trend if you're willing to go the extra mile for a flawless base. Perform the above actions, submerging your face for 15 to 20 seconds in icy water. The cold water tightens your pores, hydrates your skin, and aids in removing extra makeup.
