Makeup: How to apply primer and foudation

*Apply Primer

1. Make Sure Your Primer Complements Your Foundation.

Whether oil or water, your primer and foundation should share the same base; otherwise, they will repel each other or just slide off your face, making it difficult to blend. A good start guarantees a good finishing, so ensure to effortlessly blend the primer and foundation for a clean and subtle look.


Dabbing a little amount of primer around your eyes dramatically minimizes the appearance of crow’s feet. Less product is more around the eye area especially on thinner skin with fine lines. If you need more coverage, work in thin layers. The trick with mature under eyes is: moisturizer, moisturizing primer, thin layers of concealer ( no foundation underneath) and a small amount of loose powder pressed into the skin with a powder puff.

*Apply Foundation

1. Right Application For Right Coverage.

It is commonly believed that while putting your foundation on, if you want sheer coverage, you should use your fingers. But, if you want a full coverage, you should opt for a foundation brush. However, It is important to note that formula is key to achieving the kind of coverage you want, irrespective of the application style. The best application for any foundation is to smooth over skin with fingers or a brush and then blend out any lines with a sponge.

Avoid Peach Fuzz

2. Avoid Peach Fuzz

The secret to applying your foundation is by using downward strokes. Most of us have a thin layer of hair on our face, and applying foundation in an upward stroke will make the hair strands stand out. However, even with perfect makeup, given the right light, peach fuzz will be visible. The best way is to remove facial hair. You can opt for derma planing or use a small facial razor with oil to remove peach fuzz and get a natural and perfect glow.
