What is face foundation? It’s a makeup formula that helps smooth and even out skin tone and texture. Foundation also helps create an even base for other makeup, like blush and bronzer. Depending on the level of pigment and opacity, foundation may also camouflage blemishes and dark spots.
Foundation comes in multiple forms, including liquid, cream and powder – with sheer to opaque formulas and all types of finishes, such as satin, radiant and matte. M∙A∙C has a variety of formulas and finishes for all types, all tones and all textures – in a wide range of all-inclusive shades.
HOW DO YOU APPLY FOUNDATION?
How to apply foundation depends on the type of formula. No matter the type, Pros advise first using a primer – like Fix+ spray – which helps coverage go on more smoothly and keeps making looking fresh for up to 12 hours.
When applying liquid foundation, you can use a brush or sponge for precise application by stippling the product onto the skin, while others prefer using fingers to apply and blend. For a powder foundation, apply with a small contour brush for a lighter finish or with a sponge for fuller coverage.
