First things first, get the perfect foundation for your skin. A lot of different foundations cover different types of skin. My skin is more on the combination side, so I tend to go towards Matte, or oil free foundation. Also, determine whether you want a dewy or Matte finish. It may take some time trying to find the perfect foundation, but it’s so worth it in the long run.
Do a Skin Test
To find the right color of foundation, either test it on your neck, or your wrist. I always match the color to my neck, not my body. That is your own preference. Keep in mind, there are so many different forms of Foundation (cream, powder, liquid, etc). You may need to change the color of your foundation for when the seasons change, when we are a bit darker in the summer and lighter in the winter.
Find the Perfect Blender
To blend your foundation, you can use a beauty sponge or a foundation brush. It’s entirely up to you. I prefer a beauty blender because it gives me more of a sheer, soft coverage. If you are using a Brush, It may take longer to get a good even coverage, but it does give you more product to work with. The Beauty blender tends to soak up more product.
