This is what you need to know before you apply foundation - the MSM approach to complexion perfection!
START WITH A CLEAN BASE
Make sure your face is clean before you apply ANYTHING to it. Clean skin is the best canvas to ensure your foundation goes on smoothly. Start with cleansing and exfoliating if needed to get rid of dead skin cells. Apply a toner and a good moisturiser t make sure your skin cells and plumped up and as fresh as they can be. Your skin is now prepped and ready for foundation
USE A PRIMER
A primer is a great tool as it creates a smooth base that ensures that your foundation stays flawless. Look for colour correcting primers if you have redness or uneven skin tone.
LESS IS MORE
Be conservative while applying foundation. Start with a thin layer and focus only on areas that need it. Make sure your skin still looks like skin! You can always add more if you feel like you need more coverage.
START FROM THE MIDDLE
The centre of the face is where most people see colour imperfections or blemishes. Apply foundation on the centre of the chin and forehead, and on either side of the nose, and start to blend working outwards. Once you are done blending, take another look and gently add more foundation only to those areas that need more coverage
CONCEALER AFTER FOUNDATION
This is the key! Apply concealer only where needed - areas that your foundation hasn't been able to hide such as dark under eye circles, spots or blemishes. Apply in gentle tapping motions, using your fingers or your favourite blender.
DON"T FORGET TO SET!
Once you are done applying concealer, set your handiwork with a light touch of translucent finishing powder. Focus on your t-zone, under eye area and chin
