Flawless Foundation with Nimue

Foundation Application

How to get the most flawless foundation application.


So, this post is really quite short, but really very important. I have found that many women do not know how to correctly apply foundation. I have decided to share with you my flawless foundation ‘recipe’ in this post, in the hopes that it can be helpful for your next make up session. Enjoy!

Firstly, and this is a MUST, you have to moisturise your skin and APPLY SUNSCREEN! 

Secondly after moisturising the skin, concealer can be applied. For those of you who don’t know the difference between concealer and foundation, here is a simple explanation. A foundation is the product that you apply across the whole facial area to even out skin tone. Whereas a concealer is the product that is used to cover more significant blemishes such as dark circles. If you feel the need to apply a concealer before the foundation, here is a basic guide on what to use: 

  • green concealer on red marks
  • orange concealer on dark circles 
  • purple concealer on pigmentation marks

Finally, here is how to apply the foundation.

Apply a even layer of your foundation to the entire face, and be sure to thoroughly blend your foundation into your hairline and under the jaw line. After the foundation application, it is time to set the foundation. The best product (according to me) is a translucent powder, as it does not affect the colour of the foundation. I also prefer to also use a loose translucent powder, as it does not stick to your face as a set powder does. So if you’re make up decides to smudge during the day, you can easily fix and re-apply to the necessary area.

I hope you have found this post helpful, and will be able to keep that flawless face all day!
