Foundation and Concealer Basics

Now, before some people start yelling, “But that’s a man! How am I supposed to learn about makeup from a man?!” Believe me when I say that he actually knows what he’s talking about. As a makeup artist, it’s safe to say that he knows a thing or two about basic makeup application. I can definitely say that he knows what he’s talking about when it comes to foundation and concealer basics.
Unfortunately, the knowledge and talent behind these basic makeup routines are few and far.
The main reason why I have posted this video was because of my experience last night. Now, please don’t think I am one of those women who judges everybody’s appearance, it’s just that I am, at times, hyper aware the people around me. Kind of comes as a passage deal with the whole eye for fashion deal.
Anyway, back to the story, shall we! I was out having dinner last night and was seated at a table across from a woman who just didn’t know how to apply foundation or concealer. Her concealer was two shades lighter then her actual skin tone and barely smoothed out. While her foundation had a cake appearance and gave the “mask” effect because she didn’t smooth it out to the next. All in all, the woman didn’t have the best skills when it came to these basic tips, and it was easy to tell even in a dark restaurant.
I know that I have made those mistakes before, who hasn’t? But hopefully with this video we can help even one person to escape the embarrassing mix matched cake mask.
