Here are some tips to be followed for proper application of the liquid foundation. Girls, have a look!
1. Pick the Right Shade
Know your skin tone before choosing a foundation. There are many shades available in the market. Pick the correct one that goes with your skin tone. Beginners should buy a branded one in order to get a perfect look.
2. Start with Deep Cleansing
It is the professional way to start makeup with a clean face. You may use liquid cleansers, bar soaps, foam face wash, or any mild cleanser for this purpose. These are the best cleansing agents and help maintain the moisture of the skin. If you have pimples, avoid using a scrub as it will cause inflammation and may spread pimple-causing bacteria from one part to another. After cleansing, take a soft towel for blotting the skin.
3. Make Your Skin Ready for the Makeup
Any foundation can be layered out perfectly if the skin is perfectly moisturized. Before you start makeup, just apply a moisturizer to prevent dryness. Leave it for a couple of minutes.
4. Get Your Tools Ready to Cover Up the Areas
Just take a small amount of liquid foundation onto a palette or back of your hand. Dot it on your face and don’t forget to cover the nose, chin, forehead, cheeks, and jawline. Spread it using a strong brush and later, blend it well by moving the brush in a circular motion, to get an even coverage.
5. Give it a Final Touch
Even after spreading the foundation with a strong makeup brush, if you feel the foundation spread was uneven in some areas, then take a sponge and rub it on those areas to get a fine look. Later, use this sponge for spreading the foundation at the upper lip and smile line.
6. Let it Set for 5 Minutes
To let the foundation set is equally important. So, don’t rush as you may miss the most crucial part of the makeup. Just leave it for at least 3-5 minutes to set out.
7. Use Blotting Paper
Now, take a tissue for blotting the complete face, in particular, near eyes, eyelids, and corners of the eyes because there may be the formation of some small lines. The applied foundation may settle in these small lines, so buff it up using the same brush once more.
8. Finish it with Powder
Even after allowing it to settle for some time, apply a compact powder to settle the foundation effectively. Start spreading the powder using a puff or brush, especially under the eyes and in certain low-lying areas. Later, use other powders for blushing effect (if necessary).
Thus, by following this step-by-step procedure, one can apply liquid foundation effectively and can get a flawless look.
