How to..

Tips:

  1. before applying the powder foundation, add some essence and eye cream on your foundation brush and lightly blend it on your face. In this way the brush absorbs the moisturizing ingredients and mix it up with the foundation you apply, which will makes the look much natural.
  2. To make the powder foundation more thin and fits, you need a special flat top brush. MAC has this 196 Slanted Flat Top Foundation Brush, and this is what I currently use. It has a flat slanted top which could make the foundation reaches every contour of your face. Unlike the sponge blenders, this brush features the ultra-smooth short bristles which would not absorb most of your foundation. It is the perfect tool for waterweight foundations.
  3. Firstly apply powder evenly on your entire face, then continue to use the same brush to conceal the troublesome spots. Use a normal sponge to press it lightly will lift the conceal and not feeling heavy on your face.
  4. You don’t have to brush the finishing powder all over your face, instead try to apply a small amount only on the oily part of your face.

Hints:

  • Hot colors for asian: NC20 NC25.
  • If your have light skin, you should try NC15 and NC20.
  • The listed colors are best avoided due to pink, orange, or peach: C6, NC42, NW25, NW30, NW40, and NC40.
  • All shades with NC or C is yellow undertone, which is my choice.
  • NW or W is pink underone.
  • If you have dry skin, it is better to do moisturizing before applying.
