Use the following tips the next time you apply your foundation for a natural, healthy glow.
Prime Your Skin
Creating an even and smooth canvas is one of the best ways to set yourself up for foundation success. The more healthy and hydrated your skin is before applying foundation, the better it will look.
As dead skin cells accumulate on your skin over time they can create a rough texture that is hard to cover with makeup. They can also harbor bacteria, causing acne breakouts! To keep your skin smooth and youthful exfoliate about 3 times a week. There are chemical and physical exfoliants, and you should choose carefully according to your skin type and condition. Read our blog about Exfoliating for Your Skin Type to learn more.
Keep your skin hydrated to maintain a healthy moisture barrier and even skin texture. Choose a moisturizer that allows your skin to breathe and won't clog your pores like Oxygenetix Hydro-Matrix. Moisturize your skin right before applying your foundation. Oxygenetix Hydro-Matrix is an ideal foundation primer due to its ability to plump and hydrate the skin without making it greasy.
Apply From the Center Out
Start applying your foundation from the center of your face outwards. This way you get maximum coverage where you need it and can easily blend out your neckline and hairline.
One way to do this is to use a clean finger or tip of a brush to dot foundation on areas that need most coverage before blending and buffing.
Tap and Blend
Using a foundation brush, buff product onto skin using a light tapping and sweeping motion. Once you have covered your whole face, buff down your neck to blend out any potential line. Blend the hairline as well, avoiding getting foundation in your hair.
Take a damp sponge and lightly tap your skin where you have applied foundation to avoid brush streaks on your face or uneven areas.
Adding More Coverage
If there are areas you want more coverage, such as blemishes or discolorations, apply more foundation using a tapping motion. Make sure to wait until the first layer has set before adding more product and only add more to the areas that need it.
Look Natural With Oxygenetix
Using these techniques with any foundation won't look as good as they do with Oxygenetix breathable foundations. Oxygenating Foundation and Acne Control Foundation are aloe based, easy to blend, and set to a satin matte finish that mimics skin perfectly.
