perfecting  your base makeup only to watch it falling out    as the day drags on we all want our makeup to  stay put and look fabulous all day long right    but here’s the thing even if you’re using  top-notch makeup products the real secret    to achieving a Flawless long-lasting look is  in the prep work you do on your skin before    you start applying your makeup one thing to  keep in mind before putting on your makeup    is to keep your skincare routine as minimal  as possible applying too much heavy skincare    can make your skin greasy which could then cause  your foundation to not stick properly to your skin    so less is definitely more when it comes  to Skin Care before makeup before you go    ahead and apply your foundation the very first  thing you should do is figure out your skin type    if you’re not quite sure what your skin type is  don’t worry a quick Google search can help you    find out this is important because our individual  skin type can have a huge impact on the types of    products and makeup techniques that work best for  you no matter what your skin type is all you need    is two skin care products before applying makeup  if you have oily skin just use a refreshing toner    followed by a lightweight moisturizer for  combination skin use a toner and a slightly    more hydrating moisturizer for dry skin you can  use a toner with a rich moisturizer or lotion    and if your skin is extremely dry you can apply  two to three layers of toner to hydrate your skin    if you always experience extensive flakiness  caking and peeling when applying foundation    you can use a heavier moisturizer on the affected  areas before applying makeup typically these areas    are around the forehead nose mouth and laugh lines  massage the Moisturizer in circular motions for a    few minutes and then wipe off the excess dead skin  cells and oils using a damp cotton pad that is    soaked with your toner this technique works like  a charm for people with dry combination skin type    once you’ve applied your skin care give it about 5  to 10 minutes to be fully absorbed into your skin    when you touch your face with your fingers  you should feel that your skin is plump    and well hydrated with a slightly tacky  feel like it’s had a good drink of water    this is the perfect condition for applying makeup  and your foundation will stay put on your skin    while it can be tempting to apply a sheet mask  right before applying your makeup it is not    recommended if you have an upcoming big event  or special occasion that requires a Flawless    makeup look a better option would be to perform  a deep cleansing followed by a skincare mask and    lotion the night before this will ensure that your  makeup stays put on your skin throughout the day    if you’re struggling with fine lines under your  eyes that crack through your foundation it’s    recommended to use a light non-pilling  eye cream and apply only a small amount    second sunscreen product selection and application  sunscreen should be the last step of a skincare    routine and the first step of makeup issues  such as pilling and white casts that appear    after applying sunscreen are usually caused  by incorrect application techniques or using    unsuitable products before applying sunscreen  you have to make sure the skin care products    are completely absorbed and touched dry select  sunscreen which is suitable for your skin type    to ensure the effectiveness of your sunscreen  it’s recommended to apply two lines of sunscreen    directly onto your index and middle fingers using  too little sunscreen can reduce its Effectiveness    but applying the entire amount on the face at  once can cause white patches and pilling the    correct way should be applying half of the amount  evenly over the face gently Pat it onto your face    in One Direction avoiding vigorous rubbing or  circular motions especially if the sunscreen has    a thicker or heavier texture use your fingertips  to lightly Pat the sunscreen all over your face    then for the remaining half of the amount  apply a second layer over the nose cheeks    and other oily areas of your skin don’t forget  to apply sunscreen to the corners of your mouth    hairline and jawline and don’t be afraid to  apply a little extra to your neck remember    to wait for three to ten minutes to allow time  for the sunscreen to sink into the skin properly  next primer is a makeup primer really necessary  well it’s not but it will enhance the longevity    of your makeup or improve skin texture there are  severalof primers available including color    correcting primers hydrating primers Well  Control primers and silicone-based primers    color correcting primers come in two types  tinted primers and Prime color correctors    Prime color correctors commonly used are  purple and green the purple Hue helps to    even out dull yellow skin tones while the green  Hue neutralizes red patches tinted primer help    to brighten up your overall skin tone if your  skin is already well hydrated and moisturized    during your pre-makeup skincare routine you  can skip using a hydrating primer altogether    for those with oily skin the oil control primer  is your best friend this type of primer will give    your skin a natural matte finish it’s recommended  to only apply the primer to the areas that tend to    get greasy easily such as the nose forehead and  Chin silicones and primers can help to blur out    imperfections on your face fill in fine lines and  wrinkles and reduce the appearance of pores this    creates a clean base for your makeup allowing it  to be applied more evenly and look better overall    remember that you don’t need to apply this type  of primer all over your face if you want your    skin to look smooth overall you can apply a thin  layer to your T-Zone and areas with larger pores    smooth it along the direction of your pores  in areas where your pores are more visible    using too much is unnecessary as  it will cause pilling of your base    if you have different skin concerns in different  areas of your face for example your T-Zone is oily    and your cheeks are dry you can use different  primers with different functions for each area    for areas with large pores such as the T-Zone  and nose veins you can use a silicone-based    primer for dry areas you should use hydrating  primers to prevent flaking and Fine Lines    to prevent the foundation from budging on your  skin avoid applying too much product and rubbing    or patting it in vigorously remember to  apply the primer in One Direction only    all these can make your foundation  look dead white heavy and oily looking    if your skin doesn’t have any of the concerns  mentioned earlier feel free to skip the primer  have you ever pondered the best order of applying  foundation and concealer rest assured that you’re    not alone this has been a topic of discussion  among many makeup enthusiasts and even on the    Chinese appsial hongshu well there’s no right  or wrong answer to that only the best technique    that works for your skin however most of the  tutorials we came across on see how hung Shu    recommend applying concealer before foundation  this technique is useful to cover up large patchy    blemishes such as dark circles discolorations or  rashes by applying concealer before foundation you    can even out the uneven skin tone of blemishes  color correcting concealers are often used to    neutralize the pigmentation of these blemishes  which means less Foundation is needed afterward    this creates a more natural looking finish in the  end on the flip side while Prime color corrector    concealers are pretty popular in the western  Beauty World but they are less recommended by    the Chinese Beauty gurus this is because these  concealers are highly saturated and pigmented    which can make it challenging for makeup  beginners to use them hence the liquid or    cream concealer with Shades close to your skin  tone is the best option if you’re a newbie or    you have less blemishes to conceal in conclusion  to know if concealer should come before or after    Foundation the color of concealer and the type  of blemishes should be taken into consideration    concealer with shade close to skin tone  should be used after Foundation blemishes    appear in larger areas with discoloration  should be color corrected before foundation  the application technique plays a crucial  role in concealing blemishes as using the    wrong technique can result in ineffective  coverage and the product easily falling off    first if you’re using a concealer palette pick a  shade slightly darker than your actual skin tone    warm it up by rubbing it in circular motions using  your fingertips this will help to create a creamy    texture next swipe the concealer onto the back  of your hand then use a concealer buffer brush    to apply the concealer onto your skin before  applying it directly onto your skin brush it    onto the back of your hand to ensure that the  brush has an even amount of concealer on it    tap the brush onto the acne marks vertically  then blend out the edges of the concealers    remember never blend out the center of your  concealed areas if you do your brush will    just smudge off the concealer that you’ve applied  to your blemishes and you won’t get full coverage    so be careful not only that if you dip your brush  directly into the concealer palette you’ll pick up    too much product and it will look heavy and  Cakey on your face which can lead to caking    this way of applying concealer will give a more  natural looking finish without any visible brush    Strokes on the face for dark eye circles warm  up the peach shade on the palette and dab a thin    layer of concealer underneath your under eye with  fingertips or flat concealer brush dab out the    concealer in One Direction both below and above  the concealed region then Pat it out lightly with    a wet cushioned sponge to blend into your skin  better see the difference the dark pigmentation    has been neutralized and now all you can continue  with the following steps of your makeup routine    do you still notice your dark circles and  tear grooves even after applying foundation    don’t worry you can further conceal them  with a simple spot concealing technique    after applying your foundation use  a concealer shade slightly lighter    than your foundation shade to highlight  the tear Groove area Beneath Your Eyes    take a flat concealer brush and apply a tiny  amount of product directly to the groove    let it set for about 10 to 20 seconds before using  a tissue to clean off any excess product on the    brush then gently dab and blend the concealer into  the base for an even finish if your tear grooves    are not very noticeable you can certainly skip  this step for those who conceal before applying    foundation it is best to set the concealed  areas with a coat of setting spray this extra    step can help the concealer to stay put on the  blemished areas when Foundation is applied later    on the other hand small blemishes such as pimples  bumps or acne scars can be dealt with after    applying foundation after applying your foundation  get a high coverage liquid concealer that is close    to your foundation shade gently dab the concealer  onto the bump of your acne with slight pressure to    ensure that the entire area is fully covered allow  it to sit for 30 seconds to dry then get an angled    concealer brush to blend out the edges without  touching the center of the concealed area at this    point your acne is mostly covered but you may  still notice some bumpy texture from a distance    to address this apply finishing powder with a puff  sponge again do not pull or rub the puff sponge    just tap on your skin and lift it the matte finish  of the powder can help to reduce the appearance    of the bumpy texture making it less noticeable  however it is impossible for a bumpy pimple to    be completely concealed so we should only aim  for a natural and clean makeup look overall  whether you’re a beginner or a makeup Enthusiast  Foundation is an essential step in creating a    Flawless and long lasting base for your makeup  it not only evens out your skin tone but also    provides a smooth canvas for the rest of your  makeup there are a couple of common mistakes    that many people make when it comes to applying  foundation the first one is pumping the foundation    directly onto their faces or applying a big dollop  in one go onto a certain area of the face and then    blending it out with a beauty blender this method  makes it hard to control the amount of foundation    used and it’s easy to go overboard with it and  ruin your makeup moreover half of the foundation    gets soaked up by the beauty blender so it’s best  to avoid applying too much at once or putting the    entire amount on a particular skin area the other  mistake is pumping the foundation onto the beauty    blender before applying it to your face which  can also lead to an uneven and heavy application    instead start by dispensing the foundation  onto the back of your hand and spreading it    out to check the amount before we dive into the  application process it’s important to note that    many Beauty gurus on xiaohangshu emphasize the  importance of applying foundation in sections    it’s best to avoid applying the foundation  all over your face at once and instead focus    on smaller areas to ensure an even and  natural looking finish foundations with    dryer and quicker setting formulas tend to  set on your skin faster than other formulas    if you apply the foundation all over your face  first it may dry out before you get a chance to    blend it out resulting in Apache and uneven  finish the correct method to apply is to use    your fingers to dab the product onto your face  in sections for your cheeks use your fingertip    to gently dab the foundation from the outer  corner of your eyes towards the mouth corner    start with a thin layer of foundation in the  center of your face and blend it outwards    each dab should be light to create an even and  thin layer of foundation across your entire face    this technique is recommended because the  skin tone is generally lighter near the mid    face and gets darker towards the sides next  take a damp cushion sponge or beauty blender    remember to dampen your makeup sponge as it  aids in smoother product application resulting    in an even streak free finish this technique is  particularly beneficial for those with dry skin    as brushes can leave flakes on the surface but the  added moisture from a damp sponge can be helpful    however be cautious not to use too much water as  it may dilute the product and affect its texture    remember to wring out the sponge well after it  has fully expanded to ensure proper application    then Pat the makeup sponge in a vertical  padding motion onto your skin you can    apply slight pressure while petting so you’re  beating the foundation evenly onto your skin    avoid swiping or pulling the sponge across your  face as this can negatively impact the Finish    by patting the foundation onto your skin you’ll  allow the foundation to blend seamlessly into    your skin if you have already applied concealer  to certain areas of your cheeks you’ll need to    be extra gentle when applying foundation to these  areas just apply a light layer of foundation on    the areas where you have concealed and avoid  dragging or pulling the sponge back and forth    your goal is to even out your skin tone since  you have already applied the color correcting    concealer earlier to even out the skin tone around  the iron area simply use the leftover foundation    on the back of your hand and apply a thin layer  be gentle while doing so as the skin around the    eyes is delicate and it creases easily if too much  product is applied the forehead nose tip and nose    wings are areas that typically have larger pores  it’s best to apply your foundation against the    direction of your pores to create a smoother more  even look to apply to the forehead a nose Bridge    start by swiping a thin layer of foundation in a  downward motion for the nose Wings gently dab the    foundation in a circular motion to blend it evenly  into the skin this technique will help to create    a Flawless finish and minimize the appearance  of pores again Pat it out with a damped makeup    sponge and vertical padding motion remember  not to wipe or swipe while applying and voila    you’ve achieved a clean smooth natural looking  base with minimized pores to get the perfect    amount of product from your cushion Foundation  position your fingers at the center of the pot    this will ensure that the puff picks up just the  right amount of foundation from the cushion avoid    placing your fingers too far forward as this can  result in wastage and cause your base to appear    cakey with too much product applied then remove  any excess product by tapping the puff on the lid    this step is important because taking too  much product on the puff can make your base    look heavier and Cakey next dab the foundation  onto the center region of the outer eye corner    and your mouth corner and blend it out over  your cheeks using a vertical petting motion    this technique is a game changer for anyone who  struggles with creasing and cracking around the    cheeks under eyes and nose region the key is  to avoid applying too much product directly    to these areas which can make your pores look  more noticeable and cause your base to crack    for extra coverage on blemishes dip the puff back  into the cushion and gently Pat the foundation    onto these areas finally blend everything  seamlessly by quickly patting the entire area    this will help you achieve a porcelain  like finish that looks Flawless and natural    if you’re worried about larger pores a  good technique is to dab your finger on    the cushion to pick up some Foundation  then swipe it evenly onto the areas of    your skin with larger pores and gently  Pat it out to blend it in seamlessly    this method will help minimize the appearance  of pores and create a smoother more even finish    when it comes to picking the right foundation  finish it really depends on personal preference    Some people prefer a matte finish While others  prefer a dewy look however if you have more skin    blemishes larger pores or oily slash combination  skin a dewy finish may not be the best option    for you the glow from a dewy finish can actually  make your blemishes more noticeable in this case    a foundation with a matte finish would be more  suitable finally we are moving to the last step of    the base makeup routine now it’s time to set your  makeup to make it last longer throughout the day    setting your makeup also helps to prevent oiliness  and shine in this section we’ll show you some easy    steps to set your base makeup and give you  some tips to ensure your makeup stays put    to set your base makeup there’s another option  aside from setting spray which is setting powder    setting powder helps control oil and gives  a natural finish without compromising your    foundation you can choose between tinted or  translucent powder translucent powder has    no concealing effect while tinted powders have a  slight tint that can also provide color correction    different setting tools provide different effects  using a powder puff to set your makeup can result    in a porcelain like soft matte finish which is  perfect for those with oily or combination skin    however be careful not to apply  the powder directly onto your skin    to apply loose powder start by tapping the Powder  Puff to pick up the powder then fold the puff in    half and gently press and rub it to distribute  the powder evenly before applying to your face tap    the puff on your hand to remove any excess powder  then lightly press and Pat the puff onto your face    you will immediately notice a soft focus effect on  your skin continue patting to set your makeup for    areas with finer details such as under the eyes  and around the nose fold the powder puff and use    the pointed tip to set the makeup if you notice  any creasing on the eyelids use your fingertips    to smooth it out before setting it with powder  finally press a little more firmly on the T-Zone    to set it in place after setting your makeup you  will achieve a soft and natural looking finish    your skin will feel smooth and seamless without  any damage to your base makeup on the other hand    the bristles of a brush are more Loosely packed  so the Finish achieved with a brush is more sheer    and translucent making it suitable for dry skin  to apply loose powder with a brush first press    the brush into the powder and swirl it around the  container do not apply the powder directly to your    face rub the brush in your palm a couple of times  to evenly distribute the powder onto each bristle    avoid using circular or sweeping motions  as your foundation is still wet and this    movement can remove the coverage of blemishes  that were previously concealed furthermore The    Damp liquid foundation mixing with the dry  setting powder can cause a patchy appearance    to set your makeup use a gentle tapping motion  all over your face for more precise areas like    around the eyes or nose flatten the brush head  or switch to a smaller brush to set your makeup  the resulting makeup will have a matte finish  with a subtle glow getting a fresh and translucent    effect makeup setting spray is another good option  if you prefer a light weight natural finish and it    is also suitable for all skin types it is sprayed  onto your skin to form a film above your makeup    which helps to hold makeup in place and prevent it  from smudging or transferring throughout the day    to achieve the best results hold the makeup  setting spray bottle approximately six to    eight inches away from your face this distance  allows the spray to reach all areas of your    makeup that require setting providing an even and  comprehensive coverage however spraying too close    to your face can cause a Mist to form droplets on  your base and this can make your base look patchy    Begin by spraying in an X and T formation to  ensure that all parts of your face are covered    any Mist areas can then be spot sprayed  as required although this step may not be    necessary in most cases make sure you  let your setting spray dry naturally    this allows the spray to fully sink  in so your makeup won’t smear later on    it has become necessary to wear a face mask  which is now somewhat of The New Normal    as a consequence your beauty routine may be  impacted especially in terms of makeup application    the current dilemma is finding ways to prevent  your makeup from transferring onto your face mask    to combat this the sandwich setting technique was  highly raved by all of the beauty gurus on xiaohu    shu the sandwich technique introduced by the  famous makeup artist Wayne goth has

hours    continue applying it using the blending method  mentioned earlier once you’re done with your base    set it again with setting spray make sure to wait  for it to completely dry and sink into
