We’ve managed to quickly fix botched eyeliner or even smeared lipstick, but if there’s one step in your makeup routine that you really don’t want to mess up, it’s laying down your groundwork, er, foundation. One wrong move and you have to wipe the slate clean and start all over again. This means you might as well call in late to wherever you’re going because this could take a while. To ensure your foundation is right on point every single time, follow these 10 rules of application we should all live by!
#1. Start with a smooth canvas: If your skin is flaking, peeling or oily, you can’t expect your foundation to go on smoothly! Exfoliating once or twice a week will help slough away any dry patches, dead skin cells and excess oil to ensure your foundation goes on just right.
