Foundation Drying on Skin
Foundation cracking up on your skin again? Here is what you need to do.
Who doesn’t love to doll up and look flawless all day long, don’t we all? With the weather getting chilly every day and the dryness kicking in, most of us experience foundation crack down in the middle of the day. YIKES! A good makeup day starts with a flawless base makeup. Ain’t nobody got time to fix a cakey face which is why it is extremely important to start right. Your foundation dries up on your skin due to two main reasons, a) You forgot to prep your skin before makeup b) The formula of your foundation is very matte which will cling to any dry patches on your skin and exaggerate texture and tightness on your face. Don't worry here are few tips and tricks that will help you get covered throughout this winter season.
if you're someone with dehydrated and dry skin, you already know that your moisturizer is your best friend! Apply an even layer of your favorite moisturizer or facial oil all over your face and neck using your fingers. The 24K Gold & Roses serum by Beautify by Amna is an option, it is organic and sinks right into the skin without creating any greasy mess.
The second step will determine how your foundation will layer on your skin. If you're someone who has large pores (don't we all, honestly?) then use a pore minimizing primer on your T-zone to smooth out the area and blur the imperfections. The PORFADE PRIMER by Beautify by Amna is a suitable option for all skin tones and skin types. It is transparent and 60% water based that leaves your skin smooth and flawless.
If you're going for an all matte look, mix in one to two drop of your favorite facial oil in 2 pumps of your favorite pro matte foundation and use a blending sponge instead of a foundation brush to blend it into your skin. The sponge will give you an even application with a natural finish and the facial oil will add a slip to the foundation which will help it blend better into the skin for a flawless look.
Set your base makeup by using a makeup setting spray that will lock in your face makeup for the entire day. Try using the Smashbox Primer Water or Milani Make it Last setting spray. The mist will take away the powdery-ness from your face makeup and add another layer of hydration to your face.a
