Prep your skin

The most important and basic step for flawless base is to prep your skin which means you need to apply primer according to your skin concerns. There are a lot of primers of different companies are available in the market, all you need to know about your skin issues. Basically primer fills up the pores and smooth up your skin texture to make your foundation last long. I’ve already shared review on this elf mineral infused face primer, if you are interested to know how it works then click here.

Correct Your Skin

After applying primer you need to color correct your face which means hiding all the discoloration. As we all get blemishes, spots and dark circles that is why we need to correct it before using concealer. There are different color correctors available from which you can choose according to your skin concerns. All you need to do is apply little amount of color corrector on discoloration/ spots and dab to spread the product.

Apply Your Foundation

Next step of getting flawless base is your foundation. Pick foundation according to your skin type and skin tone. Never pick foundation shade too light from your skin tone as it will make you look grey or too dark from your tone as it will oxidize and will give you a muddy look. Always pick your foundation 2 tones lighter than your skin ( which is not that easy I know girl, I can feel your pain) because most of the foundations does oxidize. All you need to do is apply your foundation on your face (leaving under eye area) and neck. Tool for applying foundation depends on your skin type and your choice like which kind of coverage do you want. Will make a different post on this soon.

Conceal blemishes/ dark circles and highlight

Next step is to conceal your color corrected area which is a final step of getting even skin tone. Apply a one tone darker ( from your skin tone) shade concealer onto your dark circles where you did not applied your foundation because layering your under eye area will crease and make your fine lines visible. These Maybelline fit me concealers are my holy grail, I have these in shade 25 and 15. Now you have to highlight your high points of face with a 2 or 3 tones lighter concealer. Apply your highlighting concealer onto middle of your forehead, under eyes, bridge of your nose and cupids bow.

Set/ bake your skin

Lastly you need to set your base with a loose powder. Loose powder will make your foundation sit properly and if you want to make your foundation last long then you need to bake your face which will prevent your base from cracking or creasing.
