Most Asked beauty Questions:
Q: What is the best way to apply foundation?
A: Start by going with what your skin is telling you, it likes to leave you hints. I use a damp beauty blender sponge, where I spritz my face with Mac Fix + as my skin is always screaming for extra hydration, so adding that extra moister and using a patting motion with the beauty blender helps restore my skin when applying my foundation, dry skin/sensitive dosen't like too much movement can cause you to flake so less scrubbing, stroking and more patting. Now if your skin is screaming too much oil on the skin think about how you dont want to spread that excess oil around your face (which can cause more problems), use a brush that will buff off the oil yet apply your foundation, large stern brushes like the kabuki are a good option.
Bottom line think about your skin first and then let the tool do all the work.
Q: What foundation should I use if I have oily skin?
This is very much on preference as you can still use pretty much any foundation, tinted moisturiser, BB Cream or mineral powders. Sure you can use a more targeted formula Matte foundation which will prolong the shine to a certain extent as a foundation isn't a mask it camouflages the skin where as a cream/primer will prolong the shine further stopping the oil coming up through the skin onto your foundation. On my clients I use Super Matte Anti Shine- Professional cosmetics by makeup international which comes in 3 shades and can be applied under, on its own and over. With this transparent cream you can achieve a dewy skin with out looking oily by applying this only in the problem area (T-zone) and leaving the cheeks for a natural glow.
Bottom line go for a targeted base such as a cream/primer, where you can then get away with any coverage of your choice.
Q: How can you get a smokey eye using minimal Products?
Blacks or browns, which one is for you? Smokey is about just that smoking it out with the effortless look. I would suggest a cream based product for this look, they are easy to blend and the depth stays put. Mac Paint pots are great for this apply a base all over and then add your smoked out colour of your choice and blend away don't worry about staying in the lines its smokey, you can always go in later with a cotton-pud to tidy up any areas you feel needs to be toned down. I love Mac paint pots in Rebenesque patted all over my lid where I then go in with Blacktrack gel liner for a strong black and blend away from the outer corners of my eye, to finish the look I add a gold sparkle in the centre to create that pop against the jet black, curly my lashes add mascara and ta daaaa we have a smokey eye.
Theses are my views and options that I find have helped me achieve the best results on myself and my clients I cant guarantee that the make-up and skincare products I recommend will suit you. Wherever possible, test products out on yourself before purchasing.
