How to Avoid Cakey Makeup?
Solution!There is absolutely no overlooking the fact that for most of us our foundations are a gift sent from the makeup heavens. Even we cannot imagine a day where we don’t go out without putting on our base makeup. A good makeup day starts with a flawless base! It doesn’t matter how much money you are spending on your makeup, what matters is whether you have mastered the technique of applying your base makeup. Don’t worry there are no hidden MUA secrets or secret items, all you have to do is follow the below steps.
A good moisturizer in your makeup routine means that you have legit solved half of your makeup problems. If you have dry skin you already know that no one can put a price tag on the feeling that you get when you slather on your favorite moisturizer. A good moisturizer will not only take away the dryness from your skin but will also hydrate and nourish your skin. Your skin will be plumped up and ready for makeup application. Even oily skinned girls need a cream based product or a primer to get a smooth canvas before makeup. If you apply your foundation without moisturizing your face, it will set into the fine lines and wrinkles and accentuate the natural skin texture that in turn gives you a cakey makeup appearance. The beautifybyamna 24K gold & Roses serum is a perfect facial oil that moisturizes and hydrates your skin without making it look greasy at a drugstore price!
The makeup industry, be it drugstore or high end is saturated with priming products. After you have moisturized, the next step would be to use a primer. Primer provides a smooth canvas for makeup application and creates a barrier between your skin and your foundation so that it doesn't seep into your pores and clogs them which can in turn cause acne and breakouts. Secondly primers usually extends the wear of your makeup and address small skin concerns. One of the most common skin concerns that women face globally are large pores and wrinkles. The PORFADE PRIMER by BeautifybyAmna will reduce the appearance of your pores, wrinkles and fine lines and gives you a smooth and baby skin soft face to apply makeup on. It is 60% water based and has a gel like transparent texture which is perfect for people will oily skin and can be used on all skintones.
If you're someone who has dry skin, avoid using matte foundations or mix in a drop or two of BBAmna 24K Gold & Roses Serum so that it can blend better. Similarly oily skinned girls should use a mattifying primer under dewy foundations. When applying your foundation, always remember to apply it in “layers”. It is better to start with a thin layer and then build on the coverage rather than apply a generous layer which is difficult to blend. The latter will not only waste product but will give you a cakey look. The former will blend like a dream, save your product and give a skin like finish.
Blessed was the year when an American based company came out with an egg shaped blending sponge as a breakthrough product for base application. The latex free sponges expand under running water and blend your foundation like a dream by absorbing any excess product which might settle into the texture on the face. The BBAmna blending sponge is manufactured along similar lines and a perfect pocket friendly dupe for the hyped Beauty blender. It has a similar egg shape, the round base is perfect for blending your foundation while the pointy end is ideal for concealer application.
Using a makeup setting mist is one of those techniques which are crucial yet skipped for no reason. A makeup setting mist will not only lock in your makeup for extended wear but will also take away the powderiness and cakey-ness of your base makeup to give you a dewy/matte skin like finish.
