2. Dotting Base Shades
To get a perfect-looking skin, you need an excellent foundation. Statistically, only fifteen per cent of women pick the apt shade and apply it correctly. Use your fingers to apply two different base shades over your primer. The first shade, which is one shade lighter than your skin tone, will go in the center of your face. That means you should put a dot on your nose, forehead, and chin. Put one dot on each cheek, at the highest point. Don’t forget about the quantity of the shade, try not to apply too much. Follow up the dots of light shade with a color that is one shade darker than your skin tone. This shade goes around the perimeter of your face (near your hairline, along the base of your jaw, and near your ears) and in the creases where your nose meets your face. Blend the two shades together with a natural bristle brush. Keep in mind that the margins between the colors, as well as tones near your hairline should be smoothly blurred.
This technique works well for foundation shades and can be combined with other techniques, such as highlighting powder. This is one of the best ways to contour your face.
