Choosing the perfect color
You can try out different colors before choosing one that is best for you, one way to test is to apply a little on the jaw line and check it. The color is perfect if it disappears on the skin without blending. If you cannot get the perfect color, consult the cosmetologists to choose for you and get a sample for future reference.
Moisturizing the skin
The first and vital step is to moisturize the skin before applying foundation makeup, whichever the skin type. In a case where the skin is dry apply a moisturizer and wait for five minutes for it to get into the skin, it may leave dry patches if it is done quickly
Most or all people do not have the perfect skin; this therefore calls for the use of a primer, for a perfect base. A good make up base aids in minimizing imperfections and leaves a smooth base for the foundation make up.
Using a concealer or corrector
A concealer is beneficial to people with dark circles under the eyes, the concealer hides them and leaves a perfect eyelid. Moisturizing the area before putting concealer is vital in that the concealer is much drier than the foundation itself. You can apply the concealer and pat until all the feckless, blemishes or cover spots are hidden.
The best tool to use
The texture of the foundation mainly determines what tools to use; a sponge or a brush will work magic in perfecting the visual effects. For a thick and creamy foundation a brush with a flat top is the best, this is vital in that a flat top brush saves the foundation. A little amount is required and that will cover the neck and the whole face. A flat top brush is also beneficial in that it conceals pores and the skin looks clearer. A sponge on the other hand, is good in that it leaves the face with an adequate amount of foundation giving the face that semi matte finish. However, the problem with it is that it will consume more of the foundation than the flat brush.
Use loose powder
Using loose powder as it prevents the skin from showing or becoming oily or shiny. Finishing with a luminous translucent powder will reflect light aiding the skin to glow and shine. The best way to do this is to start with the hairline on side going to the cheek bone and to the nose area, the process should be repeated on the other side as well.
