~The number 1 is to apply the base of your makeup in a correct order to stay longer and fresh throughout the day. You have to apply your moisturizing cream 5 – 10 minutes before, but if you will use a silicone primer apply your moisturizer 30 -60 minutes before, otherwise your makeup will start melting; It will not last as much as you need it.
After your moisturizer, prime your face and let it sit on your skin for another 5 minutes and then if you have acne, fine lines, discoloration or very dark circles, which is natural, apply the color correctors where needed. Then your foundation and then your concealer, highlighter and contour followed by foundation and translucent powders.
- Colour correctors
- Highlight & Contour
White (1): Highlight
Yellow/ bright beige (2): Calms the mild redness
Orange (3): Covers intensive dark circles and combats dark spots
Brown (4): Contour
Purple (5): Neutralizes yellow undertones and cover dark circles.
Green (6): Fixes red areas on all skin types
Pink (7&8): Covers light dark circles
Choose the right foundation type for your skin. Foundation comes in 3 types of coverage, the liquid, cream and powder. If you have (almost) a smooth skin and you love the natural flawless result the best for you is the light the liquid foundation with a light coverage. If you have any age spots and blemishes you have to buy a medium coverage and if you have acne, large pores, dark circles and fine lines you need one with full coverage or a heavy coverage to cover scars etc.
The A to Z is not only your skin type, but also the weather plays a significant role. The winter dry’s our skin so choose a cream foundation to cancel this, in addition the summer make our skin to look oily (with sweat) and the best choice is to use a powder foundations with touch ups throughout the day to prevent the foundation to run out.
In general people with dry skin should use liquid and cream foundations and oily skin people should use foundations with mat finish.
Extra tips: Start applying the foundation from the center of your face – which is the most problematic area – and work outward to cheeks, forehead, necks (and ears).
Try those tips and you will look seamless, younger and like that you photoshoped your face.
