Essential Makeup Basics for Natural Look

Does it sound familiar? You put a perfect makeup, but it looks like a mask on your face. In my everyday practice as a professional makeup artist, I use the two simple steps to overcome this awkward effect.


1. Foundation
Usually our face skin is lighter than neck, so if you choose the foundation based on face color, it may look too light. To maintain the balance, I suggest you to aim the neck color instead.

2. Powder
If you already have a foundation with imperfect color balance between face and neck, don’t worry! You can choose a compact powder of a color 1 number darker than neck for nice blending effect. I recommend using a brush to apply the powder.

Hope you will find my advice helpful.
Good luck with the makeup!
