The skin is the most important feature to get right when getting a face-beat done. It needs to be flawless. Achieving the perfect skin finish is easier than it seems – just join me on this journey to conceal wrinkles, pimples, dark circles and more. The following steps will guide you on how to get that perfect skin finish.
After you moisturize, spread on a light primer with a beauty sponge, which has a filling effect. A foundation that is creamy and moisturizing won’t settle into fine lines and wrinkles, but use it sparingly – the more you use, the more pronounced lines will look. We like the Tara Medium Coverage Foundation.
A hydrating primer is best used for dry skin type.
Use a mattifying primer for oily skin.
Choose a liquid foundation and apply with a beauty sponge. Avoid luminous or matte ones (they make the skin appear either too moist or too flat too be natural) look for words like ‘lightweight’, ‘sheer’ or ‘invincible’. Some lightweight foundations won’t mask every flaw though. Tara Medium coverage Foundation does the trick. For extra coverage, you can use with a stick concealer. Try Tara stick concealer (Mrembo, Wuse, Daaku, Mma and Oge).
To find a foundation that matches your complexion, test the color on your jawline to end up with a shade that’s right. Tara Medium Coverage Foundation and Tara Full Coverage Matte Foundation have a wide range of shades to choose from.
Dab on a little quantity of Foundation on your forehead, one each on the tip and along the sides of your nose, and last on your chin. Using a foundation brush or beauty sponge spread the foundation over your forehead, across your cheeks, over your chin, and along the sides of your face. Always blend down or sideways, never upwards to prevent the foundation from creasing.
Blend the liquid toward the perimeter of your face. It will get sheerer as you move closer to your hairline and jaw, preventing harsh lines.
Tap a clean, damp makeup sponge around the nose, over wrinkles and anywhere your base is noticeable to remove excess that could crease or emphasize lines. The beauty blender’s pointed end gets around your nose; its oval base perfect elsewhere.
Dip a large, fluffy brush in translucent powder. (Flawless TS 11-17) Tap off excess and dust powder where you tend to get shiny.
