November 23, 2023 By Thea Off

We increase and improve upon our characteristics which we were born with, and highlight the ones which we wish had a little more prominence using all of our great beauty products. So this saying – fake it till you make it – holds true for the beauty world. If you want bolder eyebrows, make them; fuller lips, create them; a contoured jawline then contour it! In this article you will find all the information you need to tweaking your characteristics and „faking it till you make it.“


We all adore foundation, but it is easy to adore something which makes your skin looks astonishing. The thing is that we don’t want to look like we are using foundation. The whole point is that we don’t want to make our makeup look great, we want to make our skin look naturally beautiful. While hiding imperfections and evening out redness is what foundation is expected to do, if it isn’t applied correctly, people will pay more attention on your makeup than your face. You should read these great tips because they will help you to know exactly what you should do with your makeup so that it looks like you have impeccable skin.

  1. Apply concealer in the end.

Applying concealer before foundation only means that you will be applying more than you really need and this may cause cakey look. After you have done with applying foundation, blot concealer where it is needed and blend one more time. You should cover where you need to, but for an even finish you should blend.

  1. Hydrate and exfoliate.

You should clean and exfoliate your face before you apply your makeup. Flaky, dry skin doesn’t allow for a smooth application, so it is a huge giveaway that you are wearing foundation. You should eliminate any dead skin and then apply a moisturizer so that the new layer of skin is hydrated and smooth. Wait about 15 minutes between using moisturizer and applying foundation. Also, instead of using a heavy cream during the day that can cause foundation to slide off your face, you should use a lightweight lotion.

  1. Use a sponge for blending.

It is well-known that you can use your fingers to apply foundation, but using a sponge to apply liquid foundation just makes for an unbelievably smooth finish. The sponge will absorb excess product that is not needed on your face, so you will not be caking on too much liquid. When you think you have blended enough, use your sponge to go over your whole face one more time for good measure. Also, to avoid the line of makeup you should pay extra attention to the perimeters of your face, particularly your jawline.
