Flawless Foundation Application Tips

       
Thursday, November 27th, 2014

Flawless Foundation Application TipsOne of the most important cosmetics to apply to the face is foundation. It works to create an even canvas for all your other makeup. The product should appear natural and hide any imperfections that may distract from your other makeup. To apply foundation like a professional and make it look flawless, follow these tried and true steps.

Begin with Primer

Beauty experts recommend applying a liquid primer product to the skin before foundation is used to ensure that the product lasts throughout the day. It will create a smooth base and will also minimize open pores or wrinkles. For those with oily skin, the primer should mostly be applied to the t-zone to reduce shine.

Use a Brush

For a professional finish to your skin, apply the makeup with a brush and begin working it on the center of the forehead before moving outward. The dry side of the brush can be used to blend excess foundation that can look too heavy or caked on. Use smooth, swift motions with the brush for even application. You can also use your fingers to apply the foundation, which will warm the product with your body temperature and will create an even finish.

Don’t Forget Concealer

After your foundation is applied, it’s important to use a flat concealer brush to apply liquid or cream concealer to hide any blemishes or darkness under the eyes and sides of the nose.  Avoid applying it on wrinkles, which can make them appear more pronounced.

Blend with a Sponge

To create an airbrushed glow to your skin, use a small sponge to even out each area of the face to ensure that the product is pulled and spread evenly. Work it into the jawline and neck for an even blend.

Set the Foundation with Loose Powder

To finish off the foundation and make it last all day, apply loose powder and set it with a dense brush. Excess powder can be brushed off by lightly sweeping the skin with the brush. Translucent powder should be used to prevent changing the color of your skin tone.

Congratulations Jackie on being our December YouTuber of The Month!

Jackie has such a kind heart and she shares amazing beauty tips, tutorials, and hauls.

What do you love most about having a YouTube channel?

I always call my channel my little child I care for, and it’s so cool to see something you love just grow and evolve over time, but what I absolutely love most about having a youtube channel is being able to inspire others and put smiles on peoples. It’s crazy because I’ve never met these people, yet I am able to brighten their day no matter how far away they are.

What are the most challenging things about being a Youtuber?

With anything in life, no matter how great, there are always going to be many struggles and obstacles. I mean, I could go on and on about things that I have found difficult like learning to film, edit and upload all the way to dealing with cyber bullying that comes with putting yourself on the internet. But my greatest advice is to continue to pursue what you love and never let anyone bring you down, because then with that you will never fail.

What is your favorite beauty product at the moment?

Since it’s Fall I’m going to have to say that my favorite beauty product at the moment would be MAC lipstick in Hang Up which is a beautiful black cherry color. I love darker vampy lips during Fall and that is one of my reoccurring favorite every Fall time.

What beauty products can you not live without?

There’s a fews and the first is pretty boring but I can’t live without a good moisturizer because I have dry skin so that’s really important to me and I love Origins Starting Over. The other beauty products I can’t live without would be Anastasia’s Brow Wiz eyebrow pencil because I always fill in my eyebrows it frames your face and completes any look, and a good foundation to cover all my freckles and sun spots. My current favorite foundation is Make Up Forever HD Foundation.

Who is someone who inspires your beauty sense?

Without a doubt my mom inspires my beauty sense because if you look at my tutorials they’re all very natural and wearable, almost as if I’m not wearing any makeup. My mom is a natural beauty who never wears makeup and I’ve always grown up learning to love my own skin so when I stated getting into makeup I only used it to enhance my features, never to hide or bury my face in makeup.

Name 5 products that are in your purse right now.

I have my wallet, big sunglasses, a cute little notebook because I love writing and the front of the notebook says “You can never have enough shoes” which I totally agree with! I also have my current book I’m reading, Uprising by Erwin McManus and I always keep Summer Eve’s Cleansing Cloths in my bag too. You never know when you need to freshen up!

Which celebrities do you look to for style inspiration?

I absolutely adore Ginnifer Goodwin, she was the one that inspired me to chop my hair into a pixie back in January. I also love Lauren Conrad for her simplistic SoCal girl style and Victoria Beckham for her classy and elegant LBD style. All three woman are complete opposites but I think when you combine all their styles together into one you get sorta my style.

Has your daily beauty routine changed in the last year?

As far as beauty products it’s always changing because I love trying new products but overall I keep the same beauty routine as far as washing my face morning and night using a 4 step method with a cleanser, serum, eye cream and facial moisturizer. For beauty routine that changes every season. During Spring and Summer I’m more into fresh natural makeup maybe with a pop of color and during fall and winter I like to go a little heavier on my makeup with darker eyes and lips.

Thanks so much Jackie for taking the time to answer our questions, you are doing amazing with your channel! Keep up the great work! =)
