Apply the foundation cream evenly, without creating streaks or spots on the skin; you can have arched eyebrows and a bright look without sacrificing the make-up even in summer. You need right tools and technique to get a perfect base. Well-maintained brushes will last a lifetime. The important thing is to clean them well, as an artist does with his brushes: use warm water and laundry detergent, and clean them at least once per month. Dry them thoroughly with a cotton cloth and the hair dryer, without going against the nap.
To apply the foundation, always choose a synthetic fiber brush or a disposable soft latex sponge; to apply powder and eye shadows use natural fiber brushes, sable or pony hair; lip and eyebrow brushes should have stiff and oblique hairs; finally use a sponge brush to create light and dark shades on your lids. When applying the products always start from the primer, even in summer, to smooth the skin and maintain the make-up. A light-consistency peach primer is perfect on olive skin, neutral on light skin, and green-colored for those who suffer from rosacea.
Instead of the foundation, choose a lighter-texture BB cream, and, using a latex sponge, tap it on your face, by making rotating movements upwards; once you get at the hairline, shade it with the hands for a natural and radiant effect. The concealer is essential even in summer: red-orange to cover green-blue dark circles, and yellow to cover reddish spots. Just tap it using the fingertips on the colored cream.Finally, apply the powder to give a touch of brightness to the face. With a round brush draw the powder and apply it on the face important areas: cheeks, chin, forehead, and nose. If you have small wrinkles, avoid the powder and choose a cream blush instead.
Finally, the mascara: hold the brush horizontally, and apply the mascara from the root to the tip of the lashes. After that, using the applicator’s end, apply the mascara from the outer lash to the inner lash. Do you want an extra trick? After the mascara, draw a line with the eyeliner: it’s easier to draw a straight line when lashes are stiff.
