Starting Off Your Cosmetics Looks
The first step in getting a gorgeous look with foundation and other facial cosmetics is readying your face for makeup. This can be done with a primer, a product that allows cosmetics to go on evenly and remain in place for longer. BB creams
offer another way to prepare your skin for makeup. These products act as primers but also moisturize, perfect and brighten the complexion while providing anti-aging benefits and SPF protection. CC creams
are a third option and offer all of the benefits of BB creams plus ingredients that normalize skin tone.
Correcting, Covering and Concealing
After you have readied your complexion, you can apply a foundation
to perfect your skin all over your face. Foundation comes in powder, cream, liquid and stick forms in a variety of shades to match every skin tone. When imperfections remain visible even after a layer of foundation is applied, you can use concealers to make them harder to spot. Correctors can also be applied to reduce the appearance of certain imperfections, such as fine lines or redness. To promote healthy, youthful skin, it's best to apply a sunscreen or use a foundation or other facial cosmetic that contains it on a daily basis.
Finishing Your Face in a Flattering Way
Your face isn't finished after you've applied foundation, concealer and correctors. To enhance the contours of your face, you can apply blush
to your cheekbones, bronzers to areas that are naturally covered by shadows and highlighter and shimmer products to spots that you want to stand out and appear brighter. Once your look is perfect, loose or pressed powders, setting powders or setting sprays can be applied to keep your makeup in place.
