With a number of products created for the sole purpose of achieving a perfect base, it could get confusing to understand which product goes on to your skin first. The devil is in the details and layering these products in the correct order is the only way to get a smooth and flawless base just like a pro.
To clear all doubts, we give you the low-down on how to master the art of a flawless makeup base with this informative guide.
Before you begin your makeup routine, always ensure your skin is clean and cared for by cleansing, toning, and moisturising.
Next, apply a primer to your face. A primer will ensure your skin is plump and ready for makeup. There are a number of primers in the market that offer additional benefits as well like blurring imperfections, illuminating glow and so on.
The colour wheel
Time to colour correct your skin. Colour correction should always be done prior to foundation application. This makes foundation application more even and flawless.
Lay the foundation
Choose a foundation that suits your skin type and skin colour, and apply it all over your face using a damp makeup blender. Your foundation application will look even and smooth thanks to the colour correction done and primer.
The final step is using concealer. After foundation application, choose a concealer in the shade closest to your skin tone and dab it over your under eye area and any other blemishes or discolouration.
Set it up
Set your base with a loose powder, preferably translucent. This is a crucial step especially for oily skin types. Don’t overdo it though. Just dab some powder over the areas that tend to get oily such as the T-zone, upper lip, and chin.
Spritz of magic
Want that base to stay strong all day? After you complete applying the rest of your makeup on your lips, eyes, cheeks, and contour, spray on a makeup fixing spray for a long-lasting, fresh makeup look.
