It's not paint, its foundation

Make up is something that should bring out the goodness in your face. It definitely should not make you look unrecognizable at the cost of being called painted up. Hence, every girl needs to know the right way to apply foundation.

Applied right, foundation creams give an even complexion to your face, hiding the scars and unsightly marks. A well selected foundation base will also moisturize your facial skin, making it appear supple and inviting. To get the best benefits out of a foundation cream, here are few tips to apply it.

Before you begin to apply the cream, take a small cotton piece and remove excess cream or oiliness from around the eye creases and mouth. This will help fix the foundation for a longer lasting freshness. Next, apply concealer under the eyes to instantly get rid of the dark circles. Now, lightly apply a highlighter on the cheekbones and the tip of the nose.

All this needs to be done before the foundation comes on. When you do this, a resultant glow will seem like it is coming from within and not created. To apply the foundation, refrain from using your fingers. Instead, invest in a good, soft brush. Good brushes ensure an even coverage over the skin. Take a little into your palm and apply little amounts all over. Blend it in.

While doing this, don't forget your ears and neck for that perfect finish. Heeding the tried and tested methods of applying foundation will allow you to show off the beauty that you are. The trick is to keep it simple. Top up the glow with an eye popping lipstick and eyeshadow and you're good to go.
