It’s all about the perfect foundation! Most of us think of foundation as an extra step, extra layer of makeup or extra cost. I think a great foundation can even out your skin and create an effortless look for day or night.

There are many types and brands of foundation, find the one that works well with your skin and makeup needs. If you don’t want to commit to any entire bottle of foundation, go to your local beauty store and ask for a small sample to try.

Applying your foundation can make or break your entire look. Now that you have your Beauty Blender (refer to previous post), find the perfect foundation to match! The amount of product you put on your face will determine the light, medium or full coverage of your look.

Apply your foundation effortlessly with these few steps:

  • Make sure you are using the right color.
  • Making dots on your face with the foundation before blending works well.
  • Foundation is the base of your makeup, apply evenly using your Beauty Blender.
  • Let your foundation set for a minute before adding other products to your face.
