How to get a poreless, flawless face instantly
Primer, Foundation, and Baking Tips!
Everyone who loves makeup knows there’s nothing better than learning new trends and techniques to make your makeup routine easier. I recently did a live video of applying my daily routine make up with my favorite New Year look and wanted to give those who missed out a chance to get to know my favorite tips and hacks.
First- Primer: I know personally I was always skeptical about primers…I just saw it as another product for the industry to make use makeup addicts fall into but ladies! LADIES! Primer is a must! It helps smoothing fine lines, wrinkles and large pores. Once you apply the primer think of your face as a beautiful blank canvas, for makeup to go on flawlessly and stay on all day! My go to Primer is Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer!
Next Foundation Application: Everyone has their own preference on applying foundation but after using everything in the book I found my one true love, which is my Urban Decay Pro Optical Blurring Brush. But regardless of the brand using a brush is by far the best way to apply foundation. Why? When used properly, a brush is one of the fastest ways to apply foundation. They blend foundation seamlessly giving skin an even, airbrushed finish. They provide great coverage. Hygienic You can layer easily, giving you more control over coverage. They are good for getting into hard to reach nooks and crannies and they buff foundation into the skin for natural-looking results. In comparison to a makeup sponge…you are just pressing the product right onto you face, sponges are meant to adsorb...so you will be going thru your product a lot faster..also sponges need to be replaced frequently..so buying yourself a nice foundation brush is the equivalent of going thru 5 sponges. The difference is undeniable! The Brush works best with my favorite foundation.. Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation!
Baking: Here's how you can pull off poreless, picture-perfect skin and brighten your eye area... BAKING! My favorite! which refers to letting translucent powder sit on your face for five to ten minutes, which allows the heat from your face to set your base foundation and concealer, and then dusting it off your face, leaving you with a creaseless, flawless finish. It also works as a matte highlighter on your face for those who don't like that shiny sparkly look! My Favorite product to bake with is Dermablend Loose Setting Powder!
