Knowing how to apply foundation properly isn't as simple as dabbing it on and smoothing it in.

But it doesn't take long to learn or apply.

Careful application will help ensure a fabulous flawless face, and you'll love the way it looks.

So try these tips on how to apply foundation …

1. Preparation

Preparation

The first step in how to apply foundation flawlessly is to prepare your skin.

Like any canvas, you can't just slap the paint on!

You will need to apply moisturiser and wait five minutes for it to sink in.

If you put foundation on straight after moisturising, the foundation will simply slide off.

2. Perfect Shade

Perfect Shade

Nothing looks more obvious than using the wrong shade of foundation;

we've all seen celebs with the face that's darker than the rest of their body.

But how do you choose the right shade for your skin?2

The lighting in stores won't give you an accurate picture, so always check the foundation in daylight.

Just pop outside the store if necessary.

Or ask the assistant for a sample that you can try at home.2

3. Lighting

Lighting

You don't want to look like you're wearing a mask, so always apply your foundation in a room with good lighting.2

This is the key to getting a blended, natural look.

Blend your foundation well around the jawline.

It's also useful to apply your foundation looking into a magnifying mirror.

This allows you to see where you most need coverage and check that your makeup is properly blended.

4. Primer

Primer

If you want your makeup to last all day, use a primer under foundation..

It's an excellent tool for helping your makeup last longer.

Primer acts to 'set' your makeup - remember the point about preparing your skin properly.

Apply it after moisturiser;

dab all over your face and blend in.

You'll need to wait a minute to let it dry before applying the foundation.2
