Makeup is that magical tool, which on correct use can help to accentuate your features and makes you feel like an absolute diva. Additionally, it is a great way to camouflage your blemishes and make your skin look even-toned for a flawless look. Prepping your skin and using correct makeup products as well as the right application technique are some of the mains keys to flaunting flawless makeup. However, some factors like makeup creases can easily ruin your entire look and make your foundation look cakey. It is an issue that most of us have experienced, and we still don’t know how to fix it correctly. But we did some research and were finally able to come up with some effective ways to prevent your makeup from creasing. We have listed a few tips for you that will help to avoid makeup creases the next time you do your makeup.
Prep and prime your skin
If you have been caring for your skin the right way, issues like this won’t be much of a problem, however, if you are still noticing makeup creases, then it’s best you do things our way. Prepping your skin is a crucial step in this process, and it involves steps like cleansing and moisturizing. Once you are done cleansing your face using a mild and gentle cleanser, take your moisturizer and apply it all over your face, especially focusing on your laugh lines, the area around your nose and eyes. Allow the moisturizer to soak into your skin for at least 30 minutes before you do your makeup. Also, exfoliating once or twice every week will help to keep your skin smooth, so, you should do it for a flawless makeup application.
Now, take your primer and apply a pea-sized amount of it on your face, paying extra attention to your laugh lines and areas around your eyes and nose to make them feel smooth.
Dab translucent setting powder on your face
Take some translucent setting powder on your fluffy brush and dab it on your face whilst paying extra attention to laugh lines, areas underneath your eyes, and nose. This will help to remove excess oil from your face, which will keep your skin from appearing greasy and will also allow the smooth application of makeup. You can wipe away the excess powder from your face using the same brush.
Apply foundation and concealer
When it comes to picking your foundation, you should always choose the one that comes in a matte finish in a liquidy formula. These foundations result in zero to fewer creases, and they also stay matte throughout the day. Dewy and powder foundation, on the other hand, have higher chances to crease or make creases look more prominent, therefore, you should stick to liquid foundation only. When it comes to applying foundation, you should do it using a damp makeup sponge as it helps to offer light coverage and blend the product easily. Just use the foundation in a less amount around your mouth, nose, and eyes as the layers of the foundation are more likely to crease over time.
As for your concealer, you should pick it in a shade that is one or two tones lighter than your foundation. Apply it underneath your eyes as well as over the blemishes on your face. Blend the product using a damp makeup sponge to keep everything smooth. Also, try using a liquid concealer as other concealers are more likely to crease over time. And make sure to not apply more than one layer of concealer to avoid any chances of creases.
Set your makeup in place with a setting powder
Once you are done with the base, take your setting powder and dab it all over your face with the help of your blending sponge. You can remove the excess powder from your face using a stippling brush. The setting powder will not only help to set your makeup in place but will also keep your makeup from creasing over time.
