If something is wrong, the foundation can play a cruel joke with you - it can easily add 5-10 years. Anastasia Marchenko, makeup artist at La'Queen beauty studio (@laqueen_msk), listed the worst mistakes in choosing and applying foundation and how to avoid them to Letidor readers. Mistake 1: you chose the wrong shade An unsuitable shade of foundation can completely ruin your makeup. When choosing a tone, do not apply cream to your wrist. This way you will never guess with a touch! How to do it right: you can choose the right shade by testing it on the chin. It is important that the tone is in harmony with the skin color on the neck and practically does not differ from it. If the complexion with the applied foundation differs by at least half a tone from the skin color on the neck, it will look at least ridiculous. Plus, you will look like you forgot to wash the mask off your face. Mistake 2: you are applying too thick a tone Many people think that foundation should be applied all over the face. But in reality, this is not at all necessary. If you have chosen a shade that is most suitable for the complexion, then you can apply it only to problem areas (however, you need to remember to shade the borders well!). When using dense, heavy foundation textures, the face will look unnatural. And all the wrinkles will be immediately visible on the aging skin!

For older girls, it is advisable to choose products that include light reflective particles. Then the wrinkles will not be accentuated, and the face will appear younger and fresher. Mistake 3: you excessively "whiten" the area under the eyes. Do not apply foundation on the bags under the eyes, otherwise you risk getting wrinkles earlier than you would like. This product is simply not suitable for the delicate skin around the eyes. It has other functions. How to do it right: To hide bruises and bags under the eyes, you need to get a concealer. As a rule, the concealer should be darker than the foundation itself. A peach-colored concealer works great at masking bruises under the eyes. The product should not be applied to the lower, motionless eyelid itself, but to the bruise. Do it like this: draw a triangle, the sides of which will run parallel to the line of the nose, the line of the eyelid, and the third side will stretch towards the temple. Then spread the product with a damp sponge. If you apply the product on the lower eyelid itself, then a wrinkle-like fold is formed, which in fact is not on your face! Mistake N4: You Don't Prepare Your Skin Before Applying Foundation This mistake is quite common among girls. Someone is lazy, and someone simply does not know how to do it correctly. Some people don't even realize that the tone should be applied to the base! If you apply foundation directly to your face, it will clog your pores. In addition, peeling may be visible due to lack of moisture.

Mistake 5: You are trying to hide scars and acne under a thick layer of foundation No matter how hard you try, you will not be able to do this with foundation.You will not only translate the product, but you will also have a lot of makeup on your face, coupled with unmasked pimples. How to do it right: To hide redness on the skin, use a green concealer. It is he who is able to cope with traces of rashes and scars. You can cover your skin with foundation only after you have thoroughly “crushed” the concealer. Mistake 6: you have the wrong foundation technique Yes, and there are a lot of tricks in this matter. If they are not mastered, problem areas cannot be masked. Moreover, you will draw attention to the remains of the foundation on the hair in the forehead or temples. And this, to put it mildly, does not look very aesthetically pleasing. How to do it right: the foundation should be applied with a soft wide brush or a damp sponge to evenly distribute the product. It is recommended to start applying the tone from the center of the face, smoothly blending the cream to the temples and to the forehead. Mistake 7: you use powder without a purpose And thus you are guaranteed to add yourself several years. This is especially true for older girls.

Never powder your face! Otherwise, every wrinkle will be accentuated, and what we are trying to hide will become even more pronounced. Mistake 8: you paint your eyes after you apply the tone. Of course, your goal may be to look like a panda. If so, you can continue to apply the foundation first, and then do your eye makeup. But if you do not want the particles of dry cosmetics to fall directly onto the lower eyelid zone, do the opposite. How to do it right: first of all, you should make up your eyes (especially if you plan to use shadows!). And it is important to use the foundation at the last stage.
