4- The Right Way To Apply Foundation

The right foundation will even out your skin tone & give you the appearance of flawless skin. But you have to do it right, otherwise you risk looking like a ... clown. Follow these steps for a flawless complexion.
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: 2 minutes

Here's How:

1- Begin with clean hands and a clean face

2- Apply a moisturizing sunscreen that's perfect for your skin type. All foundations will go on more smoothly if the skin is well-hydrated.


3- Let the moisturizer set for a few minutes.
4- Wipe off any excess moisturizer with a tissue. Greasy skin will make the foundation slip and slide.
5- Camouflouge your dark, under-eye circleswith a concealer.

6- Using a makeup sponge or the tips of your fingers, apply dots of foundation on your cheeks, chin, forehead and tip of the nose.


7- Using the sponge or your fingertips, blend the dots together. Pay special attention to your hairline and jawline to ensure there's no obvious line where the foundation abruptly stops.

8- Set the foundation with loose powder immediately after application.


  1. You don't have to put foundation all over your face. Try spot-fixes for those areas that need coverage (likely around your eyes & nose & on your chin).
  2. Don't want to go all out with a foundation? Tinted moisturizers may be all you need if your complexion is dewy, but you want a light, sheer wash to even out blotchiness.
  3. The tips of your fingers work well, but I like to use a sponge. Make sure & wash out the sponge well so it doesn't start harboring all sorts of nasty bacteria.

What You Need:

  • 1 makeup sponge
  • foundation for your skin type
  • concealer
  • moisturizing sunscreen
