A quick 5 minute tip on how to master the flawless foundation routine!

Different kinds of foundation brushes call for different application techniques.  Each of these techniques can be used alone but combine the two methods for the most thorough and flawless finish...

Sweep it down- if you have a flat foundation brush it's likely you spend your mornings painting on your product on that's fine but ensure you only use downward strokes to flatten any tiny downy hairs on the face and not brushing them upwards!  Use the tip of your brush to get right in to the corners of the nose and under eye area.   Also be sure to 'mould' your foundation in with your fingers by pressing  your finger tips over your applied product this will get rid of any brush marks and keep it looking natural.

Whisking it round- for using a buffing or kabuki brush.  This is when you use your a round brush in a whisking circular motion to really buff product into your skin.  This is the best method for filling in pores and fine lines.  It's the best way to melt the product into the skin rather than having a layer of product sitting on top of the skin which makes for a longer lasting finish.

Combining these two techniques will ensure you have an even & thorough coverage which is buffed into the skin resulting in a fresh and natural finish.

Enjoy your new flawless face!
