5 tips for using foundation

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.

Best Beauty hacks

Best beauty hacks

1- Curling your lashes – heat your eyelash curler with your blow dryer.

2 – Use your dry shampoo at night before bed instead of in the morning, this way you wake up with fresh hair.

3 – Perfect pouty lips – exfoliate, to get rid of flakes, brush them lightly with a toothbrush, try a plumping balm and before your lipstick use lip liner to define your lips.

4 – Cover up puffy eyes and dark circles – Apply concealer only to the shadow of the bag under your eye! The concealer should be one or two shades lighter than your skin tone. Use a brush to dust a little translucent powder over concealer to help it last all day.

5 – Let the perfume last longer – if you want to keep your fragrance last longer on the skin, apply it immediately after the shower as the humidity of the body helps in this.
