How To Apply Liquid Foundation Tutorial
Start with a moisturiseed skin, apply sun screen after that. Also apply lip balm. If you have oily skin or big pores apply a primer or a pore minimizer.
There are various brushes you may use to apply liquid foundation. I have three. The regular standard foundation brush, a duo fiber brush and Sigma Flat Top Kabuki Brush.
Today I would be using the standard foundation brush. Warm up the foundation at the back of your hand using a foundation brush.
Start from the centre of your face and move towards the hair line., Move your brush in criss-cross and outward motion.
Don’t forget ..
the sides of the nose
and especially the neck.
A very small but an important step now. Hold your foundation brush flat and loose. Now lightly pat the brush on your face. Keep patting until your cover your full face. This would not only set your foundation but would also help you get rid of any streaks. Hence, a flawless foundation application.
Next Step : Concealer
I use a fluffy eyeshadow brush for my concealer application. I have not been able to get such flawless and even concealer application with any other brush so far.
Now dot the concealer under your eyes, on the sides of the nose, on blemishes, around the edges of your mouth or anywhere where you need concealing. Blend away with brush till everything looks seamless.
Tip : Tilt your face down. This way you’d be able to able to see the “rings” of your under eyes and you’d be able to conceal better.
I used two kind of powders for my face. Loose Powder- for setting the under eye concealer because I feel the compacts sometimes can make the under eye area look cakey.Compact : For Face.
I apply blush in upward outward way. this sort of contours my face giving it a slimmer look. Also, it uplifts the features.
Eyes : Keeping it very simple with kohl, brown eyeshadow and mascara
Apply Kohl on waterline
Smudge it lightly with brown eyeshadow and apply mascara. This would set your kohl and prevent it from moving.
Fill in your brows with same brown eyeshadow.
Finish off with your favourite lipstick and you are done. 🙂
Hope you like it. 🙂

U r right Jomol-good brushes I think are quite necessary-as blending with hands hardly ever gives a uniform finish-however- no Indian company makes proper blending brushes.. I once asked for a Kabuki at a makeup store and they stared at me 😯 😯 😯 :lol2: :lol2:
anuradha you can buy that bourjois kabuki brush. it’s for Rs 300 and very soft. :))
woww-really-thankuu Rati :inlove: -there is an oriflame mineral makeup kabuki-but that is always out of stock-lemme see if I get the bourjois one :)) :)) :)) :rose: :rose:

Anuradha…most of time, its out of stock, but its a pretty good one for the price…..but I want the bourjois one now :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: :waaa:
yupp..surely..and at times-it comes with discount at 198 bucks-but then it gets more unreachable 😀 😀 😀 😀

Trust me! Sanjeev is a lucky man to have a beautiful and intelligent wife… :love: :love: :love: :waytogo: :waytogo:
I always applied foundation using a sponge but now on, i wud use a brush… I just purchased a kabuki recently. I use tinted moisturiser, can i use the brush technique for that too ????
tarry i think for TM it’s best to use fingers. it is sheer as it is and the brush would suck up most of the product. I think… you may just apply with fingers and dab it with sponge to get rid of streaks. Thank you. 🙂
Oki rati… point noted 😉 😉
But for foundations like maybelline mousse? can i use the brush…
I owe u big time Rati…. i hv started using Lotus whitening emulsion on ur advice and my skin luks awesome… check this new dp… I got a wonderful compliment yesterday that my skin looks great in natural light now.. :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks:
oh!!! i am glad tarry, thank you. Yeah this new dp looks fab!! i think blues and yellows are your colours. 🙂
I feel mouse foundations are best used with finger tips coz the heat between the fingers sort of melt the foundation . that helps in spreading the product easily and smoothly. after that you can buff the foundation with a kabuki brush. works great!
actually you can use it directly with a kabuki brush also.. just buff it nicely. 🙂
Rati di, adopt me pleeeeeeeaaassssseee..so that I can have all ur makeup saman. :stars: :stars: :stars: :stars: :stars: n u look so pretty and flawless without makeup.. :love: :love: :love: :love:
