Here’s another tip for Tip Tuesday:

Today’s tip is about A Makeup Mistake When Applying Foundation:

When applied correctly, makeup can give you an instant confidence boost, but when not done right it can also be a quick way to make you feel like wearing it was a big mistake.

Being the base, the foundation of your makeup, it is very important to get it right. The formula and color of foundation you choose can make all the difference.

Foundation Tip 4: Set your foundation correctly.

If you want your foundation to last all day you have to set it! Choose the right products to finish up your foundation application to make it look fresher and last longer.

Use a loose face powder to set your foundation.  If you are afraid of changing the color of your foundation try a translucent shade of powder.

My favorite setting powder is the Maybelline Fit Me Loose Finishing Powder and the Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder.

Use a light hand when applying a setting or finishing powder.  Prevent your skin from appearing dry and powdery by tapping off your brush before applying the powder.  It is always easier to build up and add more than it is to remove and blend out if you have applied too much. Also, if you apply too much the powder may settle into lines making you look older than you are.  A facial spray or makeup setting mist works great to set the foundation and setting powder.

Any long-time reader of Looking Joli Good knows that I love the Mario Badescu facial sprays.
