The 4 largest foundation no-no’s
With a good foundation, you have a perfect and spotless-looking skin all day long. In any case, it should not be noticed that you are talking about it. But if you make a mistake – think of a brush sweep here, a pancake effect there – it is suddenly very clear that you have used it. That is the last thing we want! You can read here four foundation misses and how to prevent them.
ERROR # 1: Your neck and face do not match.
The trick to let these two match is by using the three-line trick. Make three stripes along the jawline; one stripe with a foundation that is lighter than your skin, one with a tint that you think is the perfect match and the last stripe with a warmer color than your skin color. The foundation tone that fits seamlessly with the neck is the best choice. Is your match not included? Try mixing the colors.
ERROR # 2: Visible pores.
You can easily prevent this miss by using a primer and applying your foundation in a rotating motion with a brush.
ERROR # 3: Not the suitable product for your skin type.
When it comes to skincare, we take into account our skin type. The same applies to the foundation. Do you want a flawless skin? Then choose a species that meets the needs of your skin. For example, dry and dehydrated skin needs a different type than oily skin.
ERROR # 4: Pancake effect.
This is perhaps the biggest mistake, the infamous pancake effect. In other words, a foundation that is applied too thick and is therefore very visible on the skin. The key is; less is more and build up the layers quietly. Start in the middle of your face, work outwards and blend it with a sponge or brush. This way you will not get visible edges.
