Reasons why your foundation doesn’t look beautiful

Reasons why your foundation doesn’t look beautiful: And so you solve them very easily!

You are using the wrong foundation for your skin type.

There are many different types of foundations: powder, cream, and liquid. If you have oily skin, powder foundation helps to smooth out imperfections and make oily skin less visible. If you have dry skin, it is best to use a cream foundation, this will prevent flaking and dryness of the skin. And if you are lucky enough to have a normal skin type, you can use a liquid foundation. Of course, some brands have foundations that are intended for certain skin types, for example, various liquid foundations are made for oily skin, combination skin, and dry skin.

You don’t mix the foundation well with your skin.

There is a discussion about how best to apply the foundation, up or down? We have learned from a professional that it does not matter how you apply it as long as you mix the foundation well with the skin so that you do not see streaks or spots on the skin.

You do not allow the skincare to absorb properly before applying the foundation.

It is important that you give the products time to absorb before applying foundation right away. When you apply the foundation immediately after you have applied your daily skincare, you drag your entire foundation over your face.

You are using the wrong color.

A foundation that is too light or too dark for your skin will never look good unless it’s for carnival. Buy a foundation that is almost the same as your skin tone. If you still have a foundation that doesn’t quite match your skin tone, you can use a bronzer or a highlighter, so that you get the right matches with your skin tone.

You smear it everywhere.

Apply the foundation in the center of your face. Don’t smear it all over, that will make your skin look flat and dull without contouring. Finish your look with a bronzer and blush to give your skin tone a warm glow.

You apply it the wrong way.

The brushes you use to apply foundation are important! Liquid and cream foundation is best applied with synthetic powder brushes. Natural brushes are better when you work with powder. The natural hairs of the brush absorb the powder better. Make-up sponges such as the Beauty Blender ensure skin without streaks or blemishes. You can also use a clean finger to create the same effect.

The expiry date has expired.

The last thing you want when it comes to your face is foundation that is so old that the oil has separated and the consistency has changed, throw it away!

You skip the primer.

If you want your make-up to last all day, then a primer is the best solution. Choose a primer that best suits your skin so that it gets what it needs.

You don’t take good care of your skin.

Yes, it is true that foundations and concealers can provide coverage and even skin. But keep in mind that makeup that can’t magically get rid of blemishes can make your skin even worse.
