Liquid Foundation may not be for everyone. If not for you, there might seem to lack of light-to-medium coverage foundations. If your skin is oily, we can confirm that you’ll want to opt for a foundation powder that absorbs the oil and gives a matte finish. If you have combination or dry skin, you may hesitate to use this light option because it might look cakey.
Read on for tips on applying powder foundation correctly on every skin type. This will give you a flawless finish that will last all day. Are you ready to master this formula? We thought so too!
Moisturizing your skin is the first step
Applying a thin layer of moisturizer to clean skin is the first step in preparing it for powder foundation. The skin is moisturized, which will help the powder adhere to the skin, resulting in a seamless, long-lasting makeup look. No matter your skin type, a lightweight cream will do the trick. Try L’Oreal Paris RevitaLift micro Hyaluronic Acid and Ceramides Line Plumping Water Cream.
The traditional foundation brush is not the best choice for powder application. A blush brush is a better choice because it has a larger circumference and allows you to blend powder foundation easily around your nose, chin, and hairline.
Tap off any excess powder foundation, such as L’Oreal Paris Infallible Powder Foundation, Up to 24H Fresh wear. Start by gently buffing the powder foundation onto your face in circular motions. Apply powder foundation away from the eye area.
Do not bend your bristles when applying!
Avoid pressing too hard on the skin when you are buffing powder foundation. This will minimize caking. You’re using too much pressure if the bristles bend. Use a light touch to stipple in the product.
Remove oil from the skin before you touch up
If you need to touch up throughout the day, use a dry sponge or blotting paper, and remove any oil spots on your face before applying a new layer of powder foundation. Powder over oil will oxidize makeup. To prevent this, remove oil from your skin before applying powder foundation. This will help your powdered foundation to last for hours.
