Avoid Cakey Foundation With These 5 Proven Tips!
Who doesn't like flawless makeup?
We prepare our skin well but after some time when we go out with full confidence and see ourselves in a mirror, our foundation has become cakey giving us a dull appearance which is quite disappointing. We spent hours doing our makeup right and it still doesn't work out!
So here are the common mistakes we are doing when we apply foundation and tips on how to avoid it so it doesn't become cakey.
1) Applying Too Much Product
One of the common mistakes we do when we apply foundation is the use of too much product, if you don't know how much foundation you should apply, a coin-sized amount on both cheeks is enough to give you a proper coverage.
2) Not Applying Primer and Concealer
Primer polishes out the skin and makes it more even and concealer sits on the top of the skin, hides blemishes, spots, and assures foundation doesn't smudge. It's impossible for a foundation to not become cakey after application, but using primer and concealer this is delayed for a long time.
3) Choose The Right Foundation
One of the reasons that your foundation becomes all cakey is not choosing the right foundation, maybe the foundation you are using is of a very thick consistency if that is the case try opting for a lightweight foundation. They blend into the skin well and avoid forming a thick layer which is the main reason why our foundation gets cakey.
4) Choosing The Right Tool For Application
Are you one of those girls who use fingers to apply foundation? Applying foundation with hands isn't a really good way for application, using fingers will cause an increase in sebum production which makes the foundation looks cakey. Always use a beauty blender or a makeup brush to apply the foundation.
5) Use Makeup Fixer
Do you know why this is called a makeup fixer? because it fixes makeup! Obvious right? And if you are skipping this after you are done with your makeup and invested a long time while doing so, skipping this will ruin your makeup, so every time you are done with your makeup, use a makeup fixer so your makeup stays in place.
Now we have learned about the mistakes we commonly make when we apply foundation and the ways to avoid it, girls get ready to stun everyone with flawless makeup! Don't forget this Mantra of using concealer, a beauty blender, and the makeup fixer so your makeup stays in its place.
