  • Cakey Makeup also makes you look older and also clog your pores and cause breakouts. Youthful dewy look can easily be attained if you learn the right way to choose & wear your foundation. You should leave the covering of blemishes part to concealer and use foundation sparingly on the face and neck. By substituting extra foundation layer with concealer to hide imperfections, you can avoid cakey look.

  • Prep your skin correctly before covering with foundation. Oily skinned person can apply alcohol free toner and/or oil free moisturizer. For dry skin, exfoliate the dead skin layer gently and then apply moisturizer to avoid patchy look. If you have uneven skin tone then application of Primer is essential before Foundation. By applying the primer layer you are protecting your skin from foundation setting in your pores and clogging them. Primer fills the fine lines and wrinkles and provides the smooth surface for even gliding of foundation.

  • Choosing the right shade and correct consistency is the most important thing to avoid cakey look. Seamless blending of the foundation can be achieved only if you wearing right foundation shade. For oily skin, you will have to go for oil free tinted moisturizer or foundation but keep in mind that overly mattifying foundation also has tendency to age your skin, what you need is moisturized dewy look to appear younger. If you have dry skin, opt for liquid foundation. For more natural look always choose sheer translucent foundation that will let you skin breath and feels light on your face.

  • Wet sponge is best to apply foundation, you can also use brush for smooth blending.

    If you really need more than medium coverage then keep in mind that high coverage foundations have thicker consistency and provides blotchy look. If you have to hide blemishes, try not going overboard with extra layering of heavy foundation, instead use color correcting concealer to even out your skin tone after you have applied thin layer of foundation. Finish with light pat of powder on your oil prone areas. Dry skin beauties should keep their skin hydrated with light spray on the face from water mist

  • spray bottle. You can also reapply moisture on the areas that tend to get patchier. For oily skin you will have to blot when you see extra shine, it is best to keep blotting tissues handy.
