Most women in their 20s are very interested in eye makeup versus foundation and concealer. The focus is making the eyes stand out and concealer is only used to cover pimples.
As you enter your third and fourth decades, your skin goes through many changes due to aging. It’s not BAM! all of a sudden, the changes are subtle. Don’t worry, don’t beat yourself up and spend a fortune on skin care regimens, just learn how to apply foundation that blends into your skin tone and evens out all of your new skin issues.
Common skin issues that can be minimized by foundation or concealer:
Under eye darkness
Brooken blood vessels
Blotchy or uneven skin tone
Try these 4 simple steps:
Select a light to medium coverage foundation that matches your skin (if it looks yellow on skin – it’s too dark, if it looks ashy or chalky – it’s too light). Try Laura Mercier, Bobbi Brown, and Armani liquid formulas formulas.
Apply starting from the center of your face (where you need more coverage) and blend out using a sponge (or brush).
Build coverage (apply another layer or two!) around your nose, under eye and any other spots that need more.
