Makeup when applied properly enhances your natural beauty by concealing the blemishes and irregularities on your face. A right foundation is vital for a perfect make up as an incorrect foundation application can spoil your overall make-up. Here are some of the foundation mistakes that you can avoid in order to obtain a radiant look

1. Testing the foundation on the inside of the wrist

Most of you follow the age old tradition of testing the foundation on the inner side of your wrist. If you follow the same trend, then it’s time to change it. According to Greg Wencel, a renowned
Cover girl make-up artist, the shade of your foundation should be tested along your jaw line, underneath your eyes, on your nose or in the areas surrounding it.

2. Not using a primer

Often, women fail to realize the importance of using a primer. Few are not even aware that it exists. While even those who are aware that it exists, often fail to use it as they do not know its importance. Primer helps in better and smooth application of your foundation. It not only enhances the application of your foundation, but also helps in sustaining the foundation for a longer period of time.

3. Making use of concealer under foundation

Avoid using concealer and foundation at the same time. It is better to use either of them. However, if you still insist on using both, it is always better to make use of concealer on the top of your foundation. Do ensure that the two have blended well. For perfect blending of the concealer and the foundation, try using the same brush with which you applied the foundation.

4. Failure in proper blending of the foundation

To get the perfect make-up finish, even blending of the foundation is absolutely necessary. You can attain smooth and even blending results by utilizing the right tools such as sponge or foundation brush. You can ensure perfect blending by emphasizing more on the jaw line, upper lip, areas around the eyes, nostrils and also the hairline.

5. Failure in setting your foundation right

Setting or locking in your foundation is as vital as applying a primer or moisturizer. Try locking in your foundation by applying a translucent powder. This will give you more of a natural look by preventing your make-up from looking too very shiny and flashy. It will also prevent your makeup from sliding off.
