Creating a perfect base is the most important step in makeup. Base makeup to most people means a mask of foundation, but that’s not necessarily the case ! If you have good skin, then all you need is a dab of well applied concealer and some blusher. However, most of us need a little more than that!
1- Never test foundation on your hand it’s always a different colour from your face. Always apply it to your jawline!
2 – If you can’t decide between 2 foundation shades choose the lighter one, as darker foundations create more obvious tidemarks .
3 – You’re wearing too much foundation if you can’t see any of the pores on your skin. Your natural texture is supposed to show through a little.
4 – If your makeup starts to shine, use blotting paper rather than reapplying powder, which can often start to look too heavy.
5 – Apply moisturiser five minutes before you start your makeup. All bases will go on much more smoothly if your skin is well hydrated.
