No matter if you’re a makeup junkie or a newbie, you probably know that foundation is one of the most important products in your makeup bag. And even if you’ve found yourself the perfect foundation makeup, knowing how to apply it the right way can make a huge difference in making or breaking your final look. Not sure how to achieve a smooth and flawless foundation base? We’re here to help you understand how to apply foundation makeup with ease.

How To Apply Foundation Makeup?

  • Step 1: Cleanse thoroughly

Get rid of dirt, dust and impurities from the skin by cleansing your face with a gentle cleanser. This helps your skin to feel fresh, supple and healthy.

  • Step 2: Exfoliate well

Smooth skin is the key to a good base. Exfoliating will help to unclog pores, slough off dead skin cells and reveal a radiant glow. This, in turn, will make it easy for your foundation to automatically glide on like butter and also look natural.

  • Step 3: Hydrate and protect

Moisturised and nourished skin is the first step towards achieving flawless foundation makeup as parched, dry and dehydrated skin will stop you from getting the desired results while applying the product. So, make sure you hydrate your skin with a soothing cream that maintains skin hydration and makes your foundation makeup look better. Apart from moisturising, don’t forget to protect your skin from the harsh UV rays of the sun by applying a lightweight UV protection SPF.

  • Step 4: Don’t skip the primer

Priming your skin helps to prep it and create a smooth canvas for the rest of your makeup. Apply a mattifying face primer to fill in pores, create an even texture, and help your makeup look fresh and last longer.

  • Step 5: Pick the right shade

One of the most crucial steps to achieving the foundation makeup of your dreams is by applying the right shade, the one that matches your skin tone and undertone. Not sure of your ideal shade match?

  • Step 6: Dot and blend the foundation

Dot the foundation makeup all over your face and spread it evenly. Move the makeup sponge with a short and stippling or bouncing motion to blend the foundation into your skin. Follow the ‘less is more’ mantra, and apply more foundation only if needed. We recommend opting for liquid foundation makeup like the Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation which leaves the skin feeling perfectly smooth and comfortable all day. It is made with a unique, blendable texture that allows your complexion to stay perfectly fresh, shine-free and unified. Available in various shades and formulated with colour-true NAI pigments, the Lancôme foundation maintains the skin’s pH level so that the colour stays true all day, without caking or creasing.
