- Don’t use a beauty blender. Just because youtubers do it doesn’t mean it’s the best thing to use. Ask any makeup artist and they will say they use brushes (I recommend a stippling brush real techniques do a good one)
A Beauty blender will: Cost more as you have to replace them often, use more product, take a lot longer, give less coverage, and it’s harder.
- Use a primer
- Don’t load your face with concealer like youtubers do, less is more. Only put it where you need it and don’t use it to highlight if you want it to look natural. (And get your skin colour, not lighter)
- Don’t bake. You’ll look like a drag queen. It will make your foundation look soooo cakey and dry, it’s just not necessary and will use up a lot of powder to make your foundation look worse
- Use blotting sheets then powder when you get shiny instead of just powdering. This will stop you looking cakey
