Have a love hate relationship with your foundation? It can be tricky achieving a natural looking foundation, as if you aren’t wearing any. How you pick and apply your foundation can make or break one's goal of achieving a flawless but natural look. Below is one of the biggest mistakes mature women make with foundation along with 4 tips from experts on getting the best application!
One of the biggest mistakes made with foundation is it’s too pale.
Skin tends to lose its color/becomes more translucent with age, so it’s time to ditch the rule that says you should match your foundation to your skin. Matchy-matchy foundation can leave you looking pale. So next time you go for foundation go with a slightly warmer tone to put life back into your skin. You can also blend foundations to get a more custom color as well. You won’t believe how many compliments I got after just doing this.
Below are 4 more tips for a more natural, flawless look to your foundation
1. Always work with a clean face.
It’s very important to cleanse your skin to help prevent clogged pores and remove any dirt that may be dulling your natural radiance.
We suggest our Real naturals foaming facial cleanser made from natural and organic ingredients. Thoughtfully formulated with all natural ingredients, our foamy lather gently removes dirt, makeup and pollutants without stripping away nutrients or moisture.
2. Less is more in the case of foundation.
There is nothing worse than ending up with a face caked in foundation. Always start by applying just a little bit of foundation, and then build until you have the correct amount of coverage you are looking for.
3. Work from the inside out.
Start in the center of your face where blemishes and redness tend to be more prevalent. Start with just a dab of foundation on each side of your nose, and in the center of your forehead and chin, then blend toward the outer areas of the face.
4. The ears, don’t forget them!
Ears are a part of your face, too and are often forgotten. You want your ears to blend in with the rest of your face… so if you have red lobes, don’t forget to lightly sweep your foundation brush over them.
To top off a natural flawless foundation looking we suggest pairing it with a natural looking lip to add the finishing touch to a healthier glow. Take a look at this article for finding the perfect nude lipstick!
