Best makeup tip someone could ever give is to invest in skincare and foundation products. Flawless skin is a priority and makes big difference in the whole look. Using high coverage products, face could look very cakey ant too heavy for daily look. So how do we achieve flawless skin?
Find your perfect foundation. It’s easy to say, heavy to do? I think there are so many different options, brands and foundation finishes, many bloggers are testing and recommending them depending on skin type. So first thing first, define your skin type and try as many different foundations as possible. You are able ask for testers of many makeup brands, especially for skincare and foundation products.
My chosen two different finish foundations are from Artistry makeup. I always choose long wearing finish and moisturising high coverage type of foundations, which I find most flattering on my dry skin. I got Artistry Exact Fit Longwearing foundation, which holds on the skin for whole day, feels quite sticky at first but setting up with loose powder makes great coverage and basis for makeup. This foundation requires some moisturiser so it works great with Artistry Youth Xtend Serum and also Beauty Blender is a must.
Use foundation applicators. Some foundations as this Artistry Exact Fit requires wet Beauty Blender for smooth application and perfect coverage. Because of its stickiness water makes foundation lighter and applies more evenly. Layering more foundations and concealers works perfect with foundation brushes which ensure better absorption into the skin.
Concealers and setting powders are very important. As I was mentioning before, these extras are very important for flawless skin finish. Concealer is a must with lighter and more moisturising foundations, like Artistry Youth Xtend Lifting foundation, which I love especially when skin gets more dry. Concealer works great to cover up the blemishes and under eye area, while lighter foundation makes beautiful and radiant, more natural skin.
Transparent setting powder as Artistry Exact Fit works perfectly with long wearing foundation and strengthens the longevity of flawless coverage. Also it is easier to blend with loose powders as bronzers or dry contour products after setting face with transparent powder. So layering different products you achieve better results.
Primers not for every day? Primers has some pros and cons, I know not everyone feels positive about them, but for occasional makeup I do not see anything bad to use primers even with silicons. These are not great for everyday use because it clogs the pores, but when going to a wedding- why not. Choose lighter primers or moisturisers as a base is important for daily use. Not all moisturisers you can use with any foundation, because it can slide or make a mess on the skin. So I have picked same Artistry line Youth Xtend Serum Concentrate as a basis for my foundation. It is light, soaks in really fast and works perfect with other products.
Vitamins and skin detox. OK, not only external products works for flawless skin, clear skin comes from inside, that is why clean diet and drinking lots of water is equally important. As well as vitamins, skin washing every day and avoiding sun light is essential for flawless skin.
