5 No-Nos of Applying Foundation

1. Finding The Right Match

No more matching your foundation to the tops of your hands or bottoms of your wrists. That is not your face color!  The best way to find the right color is by applying a small amount to your actual face.  Doesn’t that make more sense?  What is wrong with us sometimes!  Our faces and necks are slightly lighter than the rest of our body so make sure to match the foundation correctly. By applying the foundation to your jaw line, it should disappear perfectly on your neck.  Your neck is lighter than your face, so you want to find a shade that is blends your face with your neck perfectly.

    I disagree with the concealer and foundation part. The majority of professional makeup artists and all the women I know always use foundation and concealer. You just have to use the right techniques to make it not look cakey.

    • Anna

      I agree. I have never heard of anyone suggesting to do either-or when it comes to foundation and concealer. It makes no sense. Its about the application and amount of each product you put on. You can use foundation, concealer, bronzer, highlighter, blush and still look natural.

    I use mineral foundation that is powdered, and all you need is a good setting spray and it doesn’t fall off!

    Also, your skin absorbs liquid foundation, so all of those ingredients that are toxic are absorbed into your body.

  • Kaley

    Exactly. I use powdered foundation, set it with spray, and I don’t have to reapply it during the day. I have super oily skin, but it never shines through. So I’ll just keep doing what I’m doing hahah

      I also have super oily skin and have struggled finding a good foundation. Do you mind sharing which one you use?
