Apply Right

Hey Beauties..hope everyone is enjoying their wkend...holiday season which means crowded in the stores...i love it though, not the lines lol but just seeing everyone out with their loved ones enjoying the season. Thanksgiving is next wk, i know im so ready to eat, and boy can i eat lol... okay on to the subject...

Apply Right...Foundation

Prime:: Before you smooth on your foundation, prep your face with a primer, which will create a base for the makeup and help hold it in place all day. Look for a primer that's silicone based, which helps seals skin imperfections, creating a smoother surface. I use MAC prep and prime.

Brush up:: A foundation brush helps the product go on smoothly and covers imperfections without creating a cakey appearance. Using your fingers can cause skin irritations, because bacteria beneath your nails can be transferred to your face...breakouts. If you are using a cream or liquid foundation, choose a brush made from synthetic fiber such as nylon. For powder foundations and finishing powders, go for a natural goat-hair brush such as MAC 134.

Blend it:: Pour a quarter-size amount of foundation onto the back of your hand or into a small, clean bowl. Then dip the brush into the product, just enough to cover the bristles, you don't want to drown them-then smooth it onto your skin with even strokes. Begin with one side of your face underneath your jawline, and work your way up to your cheekbones. Then continue to just below your brows and across your forehead. Repeat to the other side. Blend-Blend-Blend! This is the key beauties. If you need more coverage, let the first layer dry then proceed to the next layer.

Hope this helps beauties.
