How to apply foundation
Become a pro! Learn how to apply makeup and the makeup tips and tricks that makeup artists use for flawless foundation application.

How to apply foundation step 1
Don’t wear the same foundation with a summer tan as you would in the winter. Skin color changes with the seasons, so your foundation should change, too.
How to apply foundation step 2
For the most professional foundation application, use your fingertips or a triangle sponge to apply foundation. Natural sea sponges don't cover evenly — save them for your bath. Instead, try foam wedges — the smooth surface strokes on evenly and the tapered edge blends makeup into tough-to-reach spots like the inner corners of your eyes.
How to apply foundation step 3
Double-check your neck when applying foundation. To avoid a severe line where your makeup stops and your neck begins, start at the center of the face and blend outward, gradually applying with a lighter touch as you approach your neck and hairline.
How to apply foundation step 4
Always shake the bottle vigorously before applying a liquid foundation.
How to apply foundation step 5
To smooth fine lines, normal to dry skin types should prep their skin with a makeup primer to even out skin tone for a smoother makeup application.

Great Tips! February 22, 2015

I always use my fingers when applying foundation. I get the fullest coverage and the best blending that way and I also don't waste as much product. :)
