Applying foundation is a wonderful way to give you the full coverage that you need to cover blemishes and imperfections. It has the power to give you the perfect canvas to apply your makeup on. Foundation can also make you patchy and inexperienced if not done correctly. These foundation tips for beginners will make sure that you get a flawless foundation.

Foundation Should Match The Jawline And Neck
Years ago, you were supposed to test the foundation on the underside of the wrist. There was the orange foundation trend of the 90’s none of us will forget. Now, they finally know how to find your true foundation shade. Draw a line down your jaw and your neck. The foundation should look like it’s disappearing if it’s your true foundation shade.
Pick Up Samples From Sephora
You can try it before you buy it. Every time that you go to Sephora you can get a few samples of products. This is considerably better, and cheaper than buying several foundations of different shades only to discover that none of them work.
Try A Brush And Beauty Blender
Some swear by the airbrushed look that a beauty blender gives while others insist on the way that a brush helps your makeup stay on longer. There is no one method that everyone is going to love. Try them both to figure out what works for you.
Start With A Tinted Moisturizer
If you’re not sure what level of coverage you need, start with the least amount of coverage. For example, a tinted moisturizer or a BB cream that will give you an even skin tone. Then, decide if you need to increase that coverage.
Put On Foundation Before Concealer
If you’re wearing both foundation and concealer, try putting on your foundation first. Then, add your concealer. (Full coverage foundation might be all you need to cover those imperfections!)
