DON’T go overboard… Dot foundation onto your forehead and nose, then blend before looking to see if other areas need coverage or can be left bare.
DO prep the skin… Give your moisturiser 10 minutes to sink on before you start to apply foundation or it will just ‘slip’. You can also mix foundation and moisturiser, then pat onto skin. Powder after five minutes.
DON’T let foundation sit on your skin for too long without blending – you’ll end up looking blotchy.
DO finish with loose powder to set the face and stop shine from breaking through. Use a powder puff or small brush and dust the powder lightly down the face to reduce the appearance of pores.
DON’T scrimp on application time… Extra time spent applying your foundation will ensure your foundation stays on all day.
DO experiment with foundations… If you’ve been wearing the same foundation for years, try something new. And always change your foundation seasonally.
