Great make-up starts with great skin. Which is why it is crucial to perfect the flawless skin we’ve all been trying to achieve. With the right products and proper application, faking flawless skin is as easy as 1, 2, 3.
Lucky for you though, we bring you the ultimate fail-proof guide faking flawless skin that includes tips and tricks you probably never heard of before.
1. Prep your skin
Before anything else, start by prepping your skin with moisturizer and primer. The moisturizer will help keep your face from drying out throughout the day and also make the application 10x smoother and easier. The primer, on the other hand, will help keep your makeup stay on all day. Whether you have oily or dry skin, this is NOT optional.
2. Find the perfect shade of foundation and apply
It should be a general rule that when it comes to applying foundation, one must not look like a white cast or an Oompa Loompah. Meaning, never go too light or too dark on your base. To find your right match, take three different foundation swatches on your face and blend it out to see which color matches your skin perfectly. L’oreal’s True Match collection has a wide selection of foundation color that would definitely make color-matching a breath-taking task. When you find your perfect match, blend it with a damp sponge or with a foundation brush. Remember, leave no streaks behind.
For those areas foundation can’t quite cover (hint: dark circles), take a shade or two lighter and conceal the areas to brighten up your face. This will instantly give you a more awake and refreshed look.
4. Set your makeup
All the hard work will be of waste if you don’t set it with powder. Take your favorite translucent powder and set your makeup into place. This will ensure your makeup to last all day long.
5. Add blush, bronzer and highlight
And finally, add some color back to your face by taking your favorite blush and bronzer. Don’t forget the highlight too. Because everyone deserves that sun-kissed glow.
