Coming up this week : Base Makeup Basics | Primer | Concealer | Foundation | Powder


Hey everyone!

I’ve had a lot of requests for posts about the basics of base makeup – how to choose primers, concealers, is wfoundations and how to apply them with the right technique. Mastering the application of these to get a flawless, healthy complexion is the key to good makeup! You could be wearing fantastic eye makeup but if your foundation is patchy and blotchy, no amount of eye shadow or great lipstick can salvage the look! Finding the right foundation and concealer can take a lot of experimenting and time so I hope my posts will be helpful to you!

All through this week I’ll be doing posts on the basics of base makeup starting tomorrow with Primers (Monday), followed by concealer, foundation and finishing off with powder makeup. I hope you will find this feature useful and informative!

    Hi. I have a combination skin which gets oily at the end of the day. What kind of primer do you recommend for my marriage matte or brightening? Thank you.

      Hi Hiti, the best thing to do is use a mattifying primer for the T-zone and a brightening one for the cheeks. It'll balance everything out. Thats what I did for my wedding!
