Make beautiful and healthy use of base cream
Maybe many girls don’t have the habit of applying base cream before powder makeup, at least I was like this a year ago. One is because I am afraid of trouble, I can still apply foundation and make-up without it; the other is because I heard that the barrier cream is not absorbed by the skin, it will affect the skin’s breathability, and it will increase the burden on the skin… Later, it was the same as
me The “smelly” cousin told me that all these are our prejudices against sunscreen. Whether it’s good or not, the only way to know is to try it yourself. Today, more than a year of “practice” has completely changed my attitude towards sunscreen, and I have also summed up a lot of experience. Now look at what I have to say.
Base cream is the end of basic skin care and the beginning of beautiful makeup. It can not only care for the skin, modify and even out the skin tone, but also increase the adhesion of the foundation and the durability of the makeup. I used to rely on foundation alone to cover up minor imperfections in my skin, but it often didn’t do the trick. I don’t know that skin modification should start with a base cream, and the greater the contrast between the color and your own skin tone, the better the skin modification effect. This is the exact opposite of foundation. Therefore, clever use of segregation cream is a panacea to save skin color.
To use segregation cream, you should first do a good job of basic skin care. When necessary (such as dry skin or thickened cuticles that cannot be removed in time), use a cotton pad dipped in lotion to moisturize the face, and then use essence or lotion to help create a moist and transparent texture effect. Because the moist skin allows the base cream to spread smoothly and evenly, and the clean and transparent state makes it easy to see the parts that need to be embellished.
After the basic skin care, the base cream “makes its debut”. In order to control the amount, it is not advisable to squeeze the cream directly on the face. Instead, take an appropriate amount of cream on the back of the hand or the mouth of the tiger, and then apply it on the forehead, nose tip, chin and both sides of the cheeks, and gently push it away with the pulp of your fingers to a thin, even layer. Beginners in makeup or those who are not very skilled in makeup can use less amount and intensive dots to achieve a thin and even effect. Don’t use too many dots but too many dots. Not only will it fail to achieve an even skin tone, but it will also affect the makeup effect and adhesion of the next make-up.
Applying by hand is just to “distribute” the base cream on the face roughly evenly. In addition, a sponge or puff should be used for further fine-tuning. Starting from the cheeks, apply gently from the inside to the outside, from wide to narrow. In the meantime, special attention should be paid to the modification of the “boundary”, such as the critical line between the forehead and the hairline, the joint between the mandible and the neck, as well as the corners of the eyes, nose sockets, and around the lips, etc., should be given a natural transition. Especially the last few parts, while carefully applying it, the amount must also be appropriate. If you use too little, it will not be able to even out the skin tone and cover fine lines; if you use too much, the excess cream will gradually gather into the wrinkles along with the facial expressions, which will make the fine lines more obvious.
People with oily and combination skin also need to pay attention to one part of the application, that is, the too greasy T-zone. In this “dangerous” place, if the accumulation of base cream is too thick, coupled with strong oil secretion, it will cause the foundation to “float” and make the makeup difficult to last. Therefore, it should be applied more lightly, and then pat repeatedly with a puff to help absorption.
The best effect that the base cream creates for the skin should be moist but not greasy. If there is a greasy feeling, it means that the segregation cream is piled up on the face, and it also makes the following makeup steps pile up like a chain reaction. Once this situation occurs, don’t be too frustrated, we still have remedial measures – very simple, gently press with a paper towel to remove the thick cream body, then rub your hands and cover your face until the barrier cream is fully absorbed , you can easily apply makeup.
Finally, I would like to give you two small TIPs about sunscreen. For those who have oily face but are extremely dehydrated, they can choose a base cream containing plant-based high moisturizing ingredients, “oil control” and “drought resistance”, and at the same time, it can also modify the enlarged pores due to excessive “oil production”; acne on the face , makeup should be kept to a minimum; however, touch-ups are necessary if unsightly acne scars are left behind.
When you need to go out, you can use a barrier cream with sun protection value (SFF value should reach more than 8) to apply on the skin scar, then pat it with your fingers like playing a piano, and then apply makeup normally. In this way, it can not only cover, but also prevent the pigmentation of ultraviolet rays, and avoid the aggravation of scar color.
With the base cream, in every new day, we can arouse the endless vitality in our hearts with bright and clean skin. The base cream gives me a pink and tender face, and the good complexion brings me full confidence.
