Try these tricks to make your foundation look more natural

For a natural look

Foundation is supposed to make your skin look better. But, it shouldn’t be so obvious for people to notice it. Instead of someone complimenting your foundation, you want them to compliment your skin because they can hardly notice that you have put on foundation.

To make sure that your foundation looks as natural as possible, consider these tips:

1. Exfoliate your skin

If you want your foundation to look flawless and avoid the cakey look, always make sure that you prep your skin. To begin with, exfoliating will help in getting rid of dead skin cells and smoothening your face. This in returns allows the foundation to settle on your skin evenly and smoothly.
