How To Apply Liquid Foundation: Tips and Tricks For A Flawless Finish
Foundation is the heart of a perfect makeup look and is the make-or-break item in your makeup routine. Foundation is of two types: Liquid foundation and powdered foundation. While powdered foundations are easy to apply, liquid foundations can be a bit harder to deal with. If your foundation does not blend well, even the most expertly applied makeup on it won’t make any difference.
The secret to a perfect finish is applying a liquid foundation with the right tools and techniques. No matter which technique you use, make sure to start by cleansing your face and applying a thin layer of moisturiser and primer. Let it sink in for 15 minutes before you start applying your liquid foundation.
Here are a few tips on how to apply foundation on your face using different types of tools.
How To Apply Foundation On Face With Your Fingers?
This is one of the most common techniques as our fingers are the most used tool in our makeup routine. Before you start applying the foundation, make sure your hands are clean and dry. Pump some foundation onto the back of one hand. Dip your fingers into the product and gently spread it across your skin, starting from your T-zone and blend it out. It’s the quickest way to apply liquid foundation on your face. However, because your hands cannot distribute the product like a blender or a brush, it may need a little more blending.
How To Apply Liquid Foundation With A Makeup Blender/Sponge?
Beauty blenders give a more professional touch and give an airbrush-like finish to your foundation. Before applying the product to your face, make sure you wet the blender and remove the excess water from it. This is a simple trick to get even coverage and minimise product absorption. Dip it in the liquid foundation on your hand and dab it in a set motion to apply it on your face. Use the pointed tip of the blender to apply the product near your nose and eyes. For a flawless look, try Lancôme’s Teint Idôle Ultra Wear Foundation as it is made with colour-true NAI pigments which maintain the PH level of your skin. The liquid foundation is sweat-resistant and humidity-proof and thus lasts for a longer time.
How To Apply Foundation On The Face With A Brush?
Using a brush to apply a liquid foundation can be tough, especially if you do not pick the right brush. Make sure you bring the one with synthetic bristles. Natural bristles can be porous, absorbing a good amount of the product. The synthetic bristles on the other hand will keep the liquid foundation in place on your skin. Apply tiny dots of foundation on your face with your fingers and start stippling with the brush. Stippling is the process of applying makeup in tiny dots that are close to each other, so they mix together to create a perfect finish. Blend it well so you get even coverage on your face. You need the best liquid foundation for this along with a good brush.
You can use a combination of these techniques to give you even coverage. Start exploring these techniques using the Teint Idôle Ultra Wear Foundation by Lancôme to know which one works for you the best.
