How to achive flawless foundation

Most of us aren’t blessed with perfect skin, but all of us can achieve it. JUSTINE BRENNAN shows you how…

PREP YOUR SKIN!

The buzzword is exfoliate! If you want to maintain youthful-looking skin you must rid it of dead cells

by exfoliating three times a week. This keeps it prepped and smooth for make-up.


DO I NEED A PRIMER?

Yes! Apply with fingertips before any foundation. They give skin a soft-to-touch feel, help make-up glide on, fill fine lines and, if oil-free, can reduce shine.

OUR FAVES: Mac Prep & Prime Skin (30ml, £19.50) or Rimmel Match Perfection Fix & Perfect Primer (30ml, £6.99).


GET THE TOOL RIGHTS…

Use a foundation and concealer brush, they apply great coverage with less waste than sponges or fingertips.

WE LIKE: Eco Tools Bamboo Foundation Brush, £7.99, and Eco Tools Bamboo Concealer Brush, £5.49


DO I NEED A CONCEALER AS WELL?

Light-reflective concealers are a beauty bag must-have, perfect for coverage in a more youthful way. They are essential for covering dark circles, around the nose and blemishes without sitting too heavily on creases.

3 of the best light reflecting concealers…

– Clinique Air Brush in 4 shades, £17
– YSL Touche Éclat in 10 shades, £25
– Autograph Illuminating Touch Under
– Eye Concealer in 3 shades, £9.50
