Learning how to apply foundation the correct way can make all the difference between looking natural and flawless, or looking as if you are wearing a mask. With a few basic guidelines, you can achieve the flawless look and become a pro at applying your own foundation. You might even get asked to start doing your friends’ makeup!

If you’ve prepared your skin with gentle cleansing, acne treatment, and moisturizer it should be in good shape for makeup.  After preparing your skin, you should have applied concealer wherever needed, though some people prefer to apply concealer after their foundation.  Now you are ready to put your preferred foundation on.

where you need it least, back on your acne.  This will only make your acne worse.  Clean
the brush every day with a little mild soap and water.  If you do it at night the brush will be
dry by morning.
