How To Get The Perfect Base In No Time
A flawless look is every girl’s dream. No matter where you’re going, clear and even skin makes you feel confident but unfortunately many external and internal factors like dirt, pollution, lack of sleep and water act as obstacles when it comes to achieving and maintaining the perfect skin texture! And the result? Lots of skin problems! Achieving the skin of your dreams through diets and detox is one way to go about it, but makeup is an easier and a faster way to achieve it!
You will need the three heroes of the makeup world - Foundation, Concealer and Powder primarily to get flawless skin. In addition to that, a moisturiser, primer, a highlighter and a mascara act like a cherry on the cake!
Invest in a good primer as it’ll act as the perfect base for your foundation to sit on as well as reduces the appearance of pores. So your pre foundation process needs to include priming and moisturising. You can also use an under eye hydrating cream to protect the thin skin around your eyes.
If you have oily skin, use a mattifying foundation and for people with dry skin a good hydrating foundation will be great for you!
Cream concealers offer fuller coverage compared to stick mousse concealers. So depending on what your skin needs, pick that.
A damp sponge or a beauty blender works wonders to buff the products into your skin seamlessly and prevents caking. Alternatively you could use a stippling brush and like the name suggests, you need to blend in the foundation using stilling motions.
If you have a combination skin type and are looking to achieve a dewy glow, use loose powder only on your t-zone. The NYX Ultra HD setting powder is a great option.
The process may sound like a LOT but trust us, its going to only take a minimum of five minutes for you to get a perfect base, so don’t hesitate to incorporate this into your everyday beauty routine.
For the blessed who need very little coverage, opt for a tinted moisturiser or a foundation that offers sheer coverage.
Don’t underestimate the power of a highlighter as that’s the secret to looking all fresh and glowing and finally finish off your look with generous coats of mascara!
