How to Apply Liquid Foundation
Foundation is applied on the facial skin as a basis of make-up so as to heighten the glow on the cheeks. Foundation can be applied with the fingers or with a mak-up sponge. Choose a make-up foundation of a colour to the top of the pigmentation of your skin and apply it in light layer. The make-up foundation must hide the imperfections, and unify the dye but its goal is not really to colour the skin.
Follow These Steps - How to Apply Foundation
1. Cleanse your skin with deep cleansing milk.
2. Take a small quantity of foundation on your left palm and apply a little on your face with the fingers of your right hand. Instead of fingers, you can also apply it with a cotton wool swab dipped in rose water.
3. Apply foundation on your neck also, otherwise your neck will look darker than your face.
4. Foundation is applied in an upward motion from the chin onwards, with the tips of fingers, thus it gets absorbed in the skin.
5. If you prefer applying liquid foundation: dap a tiny amount of foundation on your forehead, nose and chin before blending it in.
5. Let foundation dry before starting your makeup.
6. For dry skin it is necessary to apply glycerine with a cotton wool swab before using foundation. If the skin is oily, use astringent lotion mixed with rose water or two drops lemon juice.
7. Now apply foundation and make it even by rubbing the face lightly with tissue paper. Then clean your face, eyebrows and eye lashes to remove all extra foundation sticking over them.
YOU HAVE POWDER-SET A TIDEMARK? Try sweeping inward from face edges with a clean latex sponge. Still there? Work in a tiny bit of moisturizer, then tissue off. Sponge-blend the area, then fluff over with powder again.
FOUNDATION HAS SUNK INTO CREASES? Use a cotton bud to clean out and re-blend.
Applying foundation that is too pink does not look good on olive skin. Pour a little foundation inside the lid of the bottle and dab with a sponge. Using gentle strokes, cover the larger areas of your face first (the cheeks, forehead, and T-zone), following, their natural contours. Blend well under the jaw line and onto the neck, as well as around the hairline.
Test foundation on your cheek as the backs of your hands are darker, and the inside of your wrists paler, than your face. Check in daylight.
Match your concealer to your foundation. If it's too pale, it will highlight the blemishes you're trying to hide.
Don't try to warm a pale skin with a darker base -your face will contrast with your neck. Use a complexion primer or a slightly warmer shade of powder.
Foundation is not only the base of make-up; it is also a protecting agent of the skin, as well as effective medium to hide pimples, shadows and other spots.
If your foundation looks heavy or blotchy regardless of whether it was applied with a finger or a sponge, run a makeup sponge across the skin to soak up any excess foundation.
