Struggling to get fresh skin? It could be because of these 3 factors
Don’t get me wrong, some modern foundation formulas look pretty similar to real skin. Still, that glowing complexion you’ve worked so hard to achieve may not be enough under a thick layer of foundation, even if the formula claims to have a luminous or dewy finish.
Lighten up the foundation, applying only to the areas that need to be enhanced, and buff to blend. The same goes for concealer—less is more to let your true skin shine. If you’re looking to cover breakouts, dark spots, or other skin concerns, simply choose a formula that provides coverage rather than applying extra product. Loading up on layers of product can easily make you look cakey.
Or consider mixing your foundation with a face lotion or primer to create a DIY skin tone. It will probably blend more easily, provide some coverage but not that much, and give your skin an extra dose of hydration.
