Makeup is an amazing invention that lets us change the way we look, hide our imperfections for a while and also try out different looks. A full on makeup includes doing the eyes, the lips, the eyelids, cheeks and a complete overhaul of the face. But before you can apply the makeup on your face, you have to make sure that you have cleaned your face well and that it is dry. The next and the most important step in your makeup routine should be the application of foundation. Just as the name suggests the foundation forms the basis for your makeup and determines how long your makeup stays on and how good it looks. Your makeup depends a lot on how much and how you apply foundation and here are some great ways to use foundation to get the mesmerizing effect.

1. Get a foundation that goes closely with your skin color

The most important thing to do when buying a foundation is to match it with your skin tone. A darker shade or a lighter shade will always let it out that you have piled on the base. Choose a color that gets as close to your skin tone as possible. Since this is the base, it will set the tone for the rest of your makeup.

2. Apply the foundation evenly on your face

Depending on the foundation; it can be either liquid or powder foundation, take a little bit and apply it uniformly on your face. Uniformly applying foundation reduces splotches on your face and also gives your skin a clear and glowing look.

3. Use your fingers to apply the foundation

When you use your fingers to apply the foundation, it interacts with the natural oils in your finger and gives you the natural sheer look. You can also use a sponge or a brush if you do not want to get your fingers dirty. A brush also can give you the sheer effect, but the best way to go about it would be to apply it with the fingers.

4. Blend well

You need to scrub and dry your face well before you put on the foundation. The secret to applying foundation for a mesmerizing look is to blend it well. It is very rare for everyone to have an equal skin tone all over the face and this is where the blending comes in. Apply it in the center of your face and take it outside. Make sure you get the even effect.

5. Look for problem areas in your skin and work a little extra on concealing them

Before you can apply the concealer, you will need to apply the foundation to cover the problem areas, dark patches or scars. Although a concealer will do the trick, a foundation does much more to cover up.
Get a bronzer or a powder that can be applied on top of the foundation so your face does not look all caked up. Blend well and choose the right tones to create a mesmerizing effect and not a scary tired look.
