Whether you’ve got normal, dry, combination or oily skin, it’s inevitable that your foundation won’t look as good as when you first walked out the door. How can you tell? Well, for example, your T-zone might start to look really shiny, or your trouble spots won’t be concealed anymore… but who has time for touch-ups through the day, right? Here, I’ll show you my best tips and tricks for a flawless base.
Prep your skin
Apply a light layer of primer (such as Elizabeth Arden’s new Flawless Start Instant Perfecting Primer) by squeezing out a pea-sized amount onto clean fingers, and work it all over your face - don’t forget about your jawline and chin as well, because you’ll be applying foundation there too.
Conceal your spots
Using the tip of that same foundation brush, go over any red spots you might have, with a creamy concealer (such as Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Maximum Coverage Concealer).
Powder trouble spots
To lock your look in place, press some powder (such as Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Ultra Smooth Pressed Powder) onto areas that may look shiny, such as the T-zone, or forehead.
