Applying makeup is a true art form. For centuries, women have used makeup to accentuate their features. Powder was used to create a pale appearance in England and other parts of Europe. Women in Egypt lined their eyes. Geishas have extensively used makeup on their faces. Makeup has come a long way. There are extensive colors and makeup trends have changed over the years. There have been various techniques over the years that have surfaced to create better application so that makeup would last and last.
Applying foundation is one of the hardest aspects of makeup application. It is the goal of nearly every woman to apply foundation so that it appears like normal skin. If a woman has acne scars, hyperpigmentation or other discoloration and texture issues, applying foundation can be more troublesome. There are a few methods for foundation application: fingers, sponge, brush and air brush. Having an air brush machine can make foundation appear flawless; however, not every woman is able to afford such a machine. Applying foundation with fingers or sponges produces inferior results compared to applying foundation with makeup brushes.
Different types of brushes produce different results. In general, round-bristled and soft brush produces excellent results in applying foundation. It helps to blend in foundation seamlessly. Apply foundation in circulation motions to blend it in well. Also, the key to foundation application is not meant to cover every portion of the skin with a thick layer. There are some foundations that cover better than others, and stronger-bristled brushes allow for thicker application. Foundation can make or break a face. It’s worth it to put it on the right way and get the right brushes for you.
