If you find yourself wasting time trying to get your foundation to look picture perfect, get ready for some good news. Makeup artist Daniel Martin recently spoke to Refinery 29 and revealed a tip to flawless looking foundation.
“After you apply foundation, blot it with a few blotting papers, then dust on powder to set your makeup,” Martin told the website.
Yep, that’s really it. Isn’t it surprising that foundation application can be so simple?
Martin’s trick brings to light the fact that many women think that an airbrushed, cover model look requires slathering on the foundation. The reality? Unless you’re actually being photographed under high intensity cameras, less is absolutely, positively more.
Jane Iredale Facial Blotting Papers are great for dabbing away excess concealer, and come in handy throughout the day to quickly and easily eliminate shine.
If you simply must have full coverage, opt for a pore-minimizing foundation like Joey New York Pure Pores Pore Minimizing Foundation to help yourself along to looking picture-perfect. A tinted moisturizer, like Dermalogica Sheer Tint Moisture SPF 15, will help even out skin tone while still appearing sheer, fresh and natural.
