5 Foundation Mistakes to Avoid
Makeup when applied properly enhances your natural beauty by concealing the blemishes and irregularities on your face. A right foundation is vital for a perfect make up as an incorrect foundation application can spoil your overall make-up. Here are some of the foundation mistakes that you can avoid in order to obtain a radiant look
1. Testing the foundation on the inside of the wrist
Most of you follow the age old tradition of testing the foundation on the inner side of your wrist. If you follow the same trend, then it’s time to change it. According to Greg Wencel, a renowned
Cover girl make-up artist, the shade of your foundation should be tested along your jaw line, underneath your eyes, on your nose or in the areas surrounding it.
2. Not using a primer
Often, women fail to realize the importance of using a primer. Few are not even aware that it exists. While even those who are aware that it exists, often fail to use it as they do not know its importance. Primer helps in better and smooth application of your foundation. It not only enhances the application of your foundation, but also helps in sustaining the foundation for a longer period of time.
3. Making use of concealer under foundation
Avoid using concealer and foundation at the same time. It is better to use either of them. However, if you still insist on using both, it is always better to make use of concealer on the top of your foundation. Do ensure that the two have blended well. For perfect blending of the concealer and the foundation, try using the same brush with which you applied the foundation.
