Clean Your Face
The first step to applying foundation is to make sure that the base is as clean as possible. You should exert the effort to clean your skin with a gentle formula. You need to eliminate some leftover makeup from the day before, grime, oil, etc. Use gentle cleansing water so that your skin is a blank slate that is free of oil. Any trace of face oil can make your foundation run and that will be drastic for you. You can use some cotton balls or face wipes.
Prepare Your Skin
The reason why some foundation jobs look flaky, patchy, or dry is because of user error. You can make your skin work better with the liquid foundation by sufficiently prepping your skin. Add some toner to make your skin tight and firm. Use a moisturizer to make it more hydrated. Make sure to use an oil-free product to avoid any complications with your foundation of choice. Let the moisturizer sink into your skin for about five to ten minutes before you proceed to the next step.
Begin Applying Foundation
Take your bottle of liquid foundation that should be the same color as your skin. For daily use, it is best to go with something creamy and medium-coverage. It should be able to perfectly match your skin type and skin shade. Take about to pumps on the back of your hand and then dip your foundation brush into it. Dab the product into your skin. Start at the center of your face and then blend the product outward. You do not have to spend a lot of time worrying about how to make it perfect. That is for the next step.
Take your beauty blender and then damp it lightly. Make sure to squeeze out any excess droplets of water. Gently dab it onto your skin in order to blend it in. use the pointed edge of the blender to maneuver around your eyes or nose. This step is crucial in order to achieve that natural finish.
Concealing some areas of your face is a step to fine-tune the whole look. You can simply dot the concealer on glaring blemishes or pimples and then blend them into your skin. Use this step to hide a glaring pimple or any other distracting detail on your face. You can also use it to hide your eye bags.
