3 Foundation Makeup Rules

I have been vlogging a lot about foundation makeup on our YouTube channel, and this has led to me writing this post. It is very important to get your foundation makeup right. When your foundation is applied properly, every thing else will slide on effortlessly. Your foundation is the base coat and it is designed to even out skin tone. I have mentioned in many of my beauty videos, that I hardly ever use just 1 foundation. I prefer blending in at least 2 different shades and brands of foundation, to get the right shade for my skin tone.

Here are 3 Foundation Makeup Rules you may find useful –

 

Get the right shade of foundation

I struggle with finding the right foundation shade, it is either too dark or too light, hardly ever perfect. Which is why I have taken to blending different shades together. If you wear the wrong shade of foundation, it will appear like a mask on your face, and it will crack, which is not a good look.

The lighter the coverage the better

A good foundation would disguise everything from uneven skin tone and fine lines, to a tired skin and spots. I like my foundation to be as light and natural as possible. I find they easier to apply and to have on. Believe it or not, I hardly wear makeup these days, so I don’t have foundation on my face on most days. But when I do, the look I like going for is natural; I like to look like I don’t have any foundation on.

 

Apply your foundation makeup quickly

The trick with applying foundations is to apply it quickly within seconds before it dries out. You usually have only a couple of seconds to apply your foundation before it evaporates so time is crucial. I apply moisturiser/primer before putting on my foundation. That way I have a good base to work with. I am testing out a new makeup rule that says the concealer should go on after the primer and before the foundation. I will be shooting a video trying that makeup rule out so do subscribe to my YouTube channel so you never miss a video.

Quick Beauty Fixes For Busy Mums

*Collaborative post.

When you’re a busy Mum, you have so many things on your to-do list. Not only do you have to deal with all of your work-related tasks, but you also have to make sure that your kids are happy and healthy, and that you’re always there for them when they need you. Whilst you pretty much do all of this stuff in your sleep now, there are some things that you just don’t have time for, and an extensive beauty regime is one of them. However, there are some ways to keep yourself looking and feeling great (on a tight schedule) and we’ve noted them down here!

Drink more water

OK, this is probably the most time-efficient tip in the beauty book for Mums, but drinking more water is actually the key to keeping yourself looking fresh, and fabulous. All you really have to do is to make sure that you’ve always got a water bottle in your hand no matter where you’re heading, and you’ll naturally up your water intake by a hell of a lot. Water helps to keep your skin clear, and it will also get rid of that dull look that we all try to avoid so much. It’s good for your body, too, so there’s basically no reason to turn down a few extra glasses of water a day. Goodbye coffee and sugary drinks!

 

Focus on eyes or lips

Let’s face it, in the morning you have no time to sit there and go through all of the different makeup options that you have, thinking about how you’re going to spend a few hours perfecting those brows. For most Mums, the reality looks a lot different: trying to put on a bit of makeup in a 10 minute window period, all whilst running around after your kids whilst they’re also getting ready. It’s not an ideal makeup situation, but it can be solved by choosing either your eyes or your lips as a focal point, rather than both. Smoky eyes can be pulled off well without the need for much more makeup, and so can red lips.

 

Get your teeth straightened

Now, it’s easier than ever to get cosmetic dental work done quickly, without even having to have braces on the front of your teeth. This is a beauty tip that will serve you well for years to come, as you can let the invisible braces do the job for you, whilst you just come to love your smile that little bit more. You can also get your teeth whitened without having to splash too much cash, and it really will make a difference to how you feel in yourself, especially if you’re self-conscious about your smile. Bright & White offer great teeth straightening services, but check out the options in your local area too.

 

So, if you’re a busy Mum looking for some quick beauty fixes, then look no further! Drinking more water, focusing on either your eyes or your lips, and getting your teeth straightened or whitened, will really have you feeling on top form, without wasting any of your time!
