Cleansing and Face Makeup Application
Cleanse and Moisturize Your Face for Best Makeup Results
To maintain a flawless face, you need to include a daily routine of cleansing and moisturizing. If you apply makeup without making sure that your skin is clean and smooth first, then you won’t achieve the best results.
You should wash your face twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. Always remove your makeup before you go to bed. You will retain more moisture in your skin if you apply moisturizer while your face is slightly damp.
Tip: Don’t stop at your face. Be sure to cleanse and moisturize your neck as well. That part of your body is as visible as your face and will give away your age in a snap!
Face Makeup Application
Once your skin has been properly cleansed, moisturized, and primed, you are ready to complete your canvas and prepare it for your face of the day. Learn how to properly apply foundation to make it look like your natural coloring.
Brush: Use the powder brush as a finishing brush to apply loose or pressed powder to set your makeup.
Foundation is applied with your fingers and blended with a sponge wedge.
STEP 1: With your fingertips, place spots of foundation all over the face being sure to include the forehead, cheeks, chin, nose, and neck.
STEP 2: With the sponge wedge, blend up from the neckline up toward the hairline. Always blend in an upward motion, and be sure you cover the entire face—including lips and eyelids.
STEP 3: Blend on the neck and up around the hairline, even putting some foundation over the entire front of the ears.
STEP 4: Set your foundation liberally with translucent powder using the large powder brush.
