Don't you just hate it when your foundation melts off your skin midday? Or do you find it appalling that your foundation is just there sitting on top of your skin? Foundation, when used incorrectly, will absolutely look like an extra layer of product on your face like a mask. To avoid this makeup faux pas, follow these tricks below:

1. Start with clean, moisturized skin.
To avoid a flaky finish, massage a tiny amount of moisturizer on your face. You can also try a primer to smoothen the skin and to lengthen the staying power of foundation.

4. Don't forget to glow.
Skin isn't naturally matte. When your face is too shine-free, it looks flat, pasty, and unnatural. You can choose to highlight the cheekbones, tip of the nose, and chin to fake glowing skin, or you can just use a foundation with a luminous formula.
