An unexpected plan surfaces. You have 15 minutes to get dressed. Your friends are waiting for you outside. So you pull out your new lightening liquid foundation, only to find that it’s too dark for you!
This can be done in a variety of ways. Some of them, however, are listed below.
1.Using A Moisturizer:
It would help if you always carried a moisturizer with you. Women never leave home without a small bottle or tube of moisturizer in their bag. That’s all you need for your foundation!
Mix up a little liquid coverage foundation with a few drops of moisturizer on the back of your hand. Check to see if the shade is correct. If necessary, add more moisturizer.
You can now wear the perfect foundation shade because the moisturizer has reduced pigmentation.
2.Using A Finishing Powder:
This is a product that almost everyone has in a light shade to highlight their makeup look. So if you have one, there is no need to purchase any other shades.
Applying the finishing powder after applying your foundation evenly all over your face will lighten up the pigmentation of the foundation. However, do not use a powder set aside for contouring or bronzing.
3.Using A Wet Sponge:
Using your fingers to apply your foundation, predominantly liquid foundation, will appear darker than when you use a brush or an applicator. If your foundation is darker, use a sponge instead.
Use the sponge first by dampening it a little. Do not expose it to running water. The sponge should be a little damp, not soaking wet. Once the sponge is moistened, apply minimal foundation to your face and let it dry.
Make sure you apply the foundation lightly to not settle into the creases. Otherwise, the foundation will turn darker within a few hours.
4.Using A Concealer:
Apply a concealer wherever necessary and conceal the blemishes. Then, take a small amount of the product and blend it around the concealer. Again, using a light hand is vital here. If you have dark circles, make sure you blend in a triangle rather than a circle.
You can avoid highlighting dark circles by dotting the foundation around the eyes and moving down towards the cheeks if you have dark circles.
5.Use it sparingly:
You don’t always have to buy a lighter foundation to avoid purchasing a concealer. However, purchasing a darker foundation may spare you the cost of purchasing one.
You only need to apply this to the blemishes or marks you want to conceal and not all over your face. Like you would use concealer to cover scratches or dents!
