How to Apply Foundation for The Freshest Skin-Loving Finish

November 28, 2023

There’s only one way to apply foundation, right? Well, not necessarily. If you want to even out your skin tone, minimize the appearance of imperfections, boost radiance, and, crucially have that beautiful finish last and last, then there are a few expert tips you need to know.

How To Apply Foundation

Prepare your skin

Make sure your skin is clean and well moisturized before touching it with makeup. This will ensure your foundation goes on smoothly and give you the best, most luminous finish.

After massaging in your moisturizer, apply a light layer of PRIME TIME Hydrate & Glow Primer over your entire face. This serum primer plumps and hydrates skin, while its subtle mineral pigments help to even out skin tone and maximize radiance. Apply it like you would a moisturizer, by dotting a small amount onto your face and blending in with fingers.

For a velvet finish

For a long-lasting sweat and humidity-proof foundation finish that simultaneously mattifies while preserving glow, look no further than BAREPRO 16HR Skin-Perfecting Powder Foundation. This breathable, full coverage formula absorbs excess shine and delivers a beautiful, high coverage finish that lasts all day. But that’s not all, the formula has been infused with skincare benefits and testing shows it helps improve skin tone in just two weeks, and texture in four weeks.

To apply, use the sponge provided to blend the color onto your skin, starting from the center of your face outwards. If you prefer to use a brush, the Luxe Performance Brush makes application quick and easy, thanks to its dense packed bristles.

For a perfected finish

A liquid foundation such as BAREPRO Performance Wear Liquid Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF20, effortlessly delivers 24 hours of breathable, full coverage. This silky formula quickly evens out skin tone while softening the appearance of any imperfections. It gives a beautifully natural, radiant finish.

This is how to apply foundation with a brush, pump a small amount of foundation onto the back of your hand, and pick the color up with the Luxe Performance Brush. Buff the color into your skin beginning at the center of your face and working outward. Once you have applied a light layer all over, you can build up the coverage in certain areas by pressing more foundation onto those areas, like you would a concealer.

Boost Your Radiance

By now, your skin should already be looking beautifully radiant but why not dial up your glow further? If you’re using a liquid foundation, mix a little PRIME TIME Hydrate & Glow Primer in with the formula on the back of your hand before applying to your skin.

If you have applied a powder foundation, blend a tiny amount of GEN NUDE Highlighting Blush in Opal Glow onto the tops of your cheeks, your Cupid’s bow, your brow bone, and the center of your eyelids.

Eliminate Shine

If your skin leans towards oily, now is the moment to reduce shine in certain places, such as your chin, your forehead, and under your eyes. Dust a small amount of Mineral Veil Setting Powder Broad Spectrum SPF25 anywhere you tend to get oily and enjoy perfected, touchable, glowy not shiny, skin all day long.
