For the past few months, I've been searching for the best way to achieve natural looking skin while wearing foundation. Some bases sit on the skin or look cakey no matter what's used to apply them. I've finally found a way to wear foundation, concealer, and powder without it building up or looking heavy. The trick is to apply foundation in whatever areas necessary, dab concealer on any spots and under the eyes, and then blend in both products with whatever is left on the foundation brush. Foundation and concealer aren't always the exact same shades and that can cause the whole base to look fake. After blending in both products, add a hint of loose translucent powder to the t-zone and any other sheeny areas. After the base is set, continue applying the rest of the makeup as usual!
