To create a perfect make up you need to choose the right product and apply it in the right way.

NATURAL EFFECT FOUNDATION: TIP FOR APPLICATION
Simple to say, but getting a natural effect with foundation is much more difficult than super coverage. How to apply the foundation without giving the impression of having a double layer of skin? Here are practical tips for an extremely natural makeup base!
Step 1: Skin preparation
Before applying makeup we must always prepare the skin, to keep it looking fresh. It must be completely clean and free of makeup residue. Before the foundation, apply a veil of moisturizing cream, even if you have oily or very oily skin.
It will serve to protect the skin, to make the complexion relaxed and will fill and smooth the small signs of expression. Not only that: the moisturizer will ensure that there are no parts of dry skin on the face that the foundation could highlight, with a decidedly unsightly and unnatural result.
Step 2: The Choice of accessories
To apply foundation properly, you need the right accessory. Many people prefer to spread it with the brush, others are better off using their fingers. What makes the difference is the type of foundation used.
Compact foundation : use the supplied sponge only when you want more coverage.
Foundation in loose powder: must be applied with the slightly moistened kabuki brush, to capture the product particles and release them homogeneously on the face.
Liquid foundation: cat’s tongue brush for greater coverage, fingers to modulate the quantity of product and the areas of application well.
In any case, avoid using a beauty blender to apply a water-based foundation, because the sponge absorbs the product excessively and you would continue to add too much on the face.
The best way to apply the foundation naturally is to use makeup brushes, or rather one in particular, the blush brush. Why? This type of brush is designed to spread a few quantities of product in a widespread way. A real cure-all for a more natural look
Step 3: Warm up the product
The best thing to do before applying the foundation is to heat it, putting it on the back of the hand or rubbing it between the fingertips, in case you decide to apply it with your fingers. In this way the waxes of the product color will become more elastic and blend well with the complexion.
Step 4: Apply makeup on critical areas
To obtain a soap and water make-up effect, put the foundation only on the most critical areas of the face, such as the nose, forehead and chin. Then spread it out carrying it on the rest of the face. So you will cover the areas of the face that need more coverage, but you will not run the risk of applying too much product, with catastrophic consequences, such as the sharp detachment of color between the face and neck..
Step 5: Dab after foundation application
Once the foundation is applied, lightly dab your face with the help of a tissue. This action serves to absorb any excess product, without damaging the base. Alternatively, you can use a clean and slightly moistened make-up sponge to dab.
Step 6: Face Powder To Mattify
The greatest fear of all make up addicted is well known: a makeup base with a shiny effect. In order not to risk better, opt for a translucent face powder, to be applied with the appropriate brush especially on the T area, the part of the face that tends to polish more and more quickly.
Why apply this type of face powder? Because it will not affect color and coverage, will not form spots of different shades, but will only add the right matte finish to our makeup base.
Step 6: fix make-up
How to keep the foundation longer? Secure the makeup base with a nice spray of face spray. These moisturizing products are valid in summer, as a refreshing touch, and in winter, as allies to preserve skin hydration over time.
Well yes, they are also excellent for fixing the foundation and making it perfectly adherent to the complexion. The product will thus tend to merge, giving the skin the desired fresh and luminous appearance.
After all these tips, all you have to do is choose the Mia Cosmetics foundation that best suits your complexion and immediately try to apply it for a natural finish, perfect for any occasion, which covers imperfections without weighing down the face.
