Admit it, even of you don't like a full face of make up, we all want that flawless, photoshopped finish on our skin, right? Even an all natural look will look it's best when your skin is smooth and flawless. There are some steps in your make up routine that you can take to get that perfect skin going. Keep on reading to find out more!
Step 1: Face oil instead of primer
Most primers are based on silicones, which actually makes the barrier between your skin and your foundation too greasy. Besides, primers are so 2016. Face oils or just a tiny bit of coconut oil acts as a much better primer for your skin and it makes your foundation look radiant and smooth.
Step 2: Apply foundation with a sponge
Whether you use a Beauty blender or a dupe, your foundation will go on seamlessly when applied with a damp sponge. Anything else than a sponge, like using your fingers or a foundation brush, will leave streaks, marks and a less even coverage.
Step 3: Buff in translucent powder
Buffing pretty much means applying powder with a big fluffy brush in circular motions. Doing this will hide your pores and prevent your skin from shining throughout the day. A translucent powder will give you the best flawless coverage, so chose that over any pressed powders.
Step 4: Highlight!
You can use the highlighter to gently strobe your face for a natural, healthy look. Or go all out with the most shimmery highlighter to really make the best features of your face stand out! A highlighter is a must to get that photoshopped skin-look, as all that powder you added earlier can give your skin a bit of a dull look.
After these steps: continue the rest of your make up routine! Now you know which steps to take to achieve that flawless photoshopped skin look.
