Beauty Tip of the Week : Moisturizing and Applying Foundation

Wait at least 5 minutes before you apply your foundation after applying your moisturizer and primer. When I first started wearing foundation, I noticed that some areas of my face seemed darker than others and a little cakey. This was because those areas of my face were still moist from my moisturizer or primer so my foundation kind of clumped up on my skin (along with my finishing power and bronzer). I learned quickly that I needed to make sure my face had absorbed all of the moisturizer before applying my foundation. You simply can’t put powder on top of moisture and expect it to look flawless. Once I started giving my face some time to dry, my problem was solved! If you are short on time, find something else to do like your eye makeup or eye brows while you wait.

Also, when it comes to moisturizer, less is more. I know it sounds strange, but a great moisturizer doesn’t need to be slathered all over your face. A little more than a pea sized amount on key areas (cheeks, chin, forehead and nose) is all you need. Only 60 to 90 seconds is needed for your moisturizer to dry if you apply it this way.
