Steps For Applying of V Kosmetik's Primer and Foundation
Whether you are new to V kosmetiks or you are a Pro Makeup Artist, we have you covered! Here are a few tips for our Primer and Foundations after you choose your perfect shade.
So what exactly is primer? Think of primer as a base for your foundation or face makeup that will help it go on smoother and last longer. Primers are silky smooth creams that fill in the lines and pores on your face, smoothing out uneven textures and our eyelids can collect grease throughout the day, causing a “creased” look in eyeshadow. If your eyelids are oily and you apply eyeshadow or eyeliner without primer, the application may be patchy and uneven.
Step 1. Whether you’re planning on applying a light coat of foundation or a full face of makeup, primer is an important first step. Using a primer under your makeup will make your look last longer.
Step 2.Start from the center of your face and blend the liquid foundation outwards. As you sweep your foundation across the skin, be sure to buff it in. Some women like to stipple a damp sponge over their foundation to help ensure it gets into those lines and creases, which can create a smoother, more even texture. Certain types of makeup brushes are also great for buffing foundation into the skin.
Step 3.To reduce the appearance of dark under-eye circles and create a glowing, bright look, apply light concealer beneath the eyes with a damp sponge or makeup brush.
If you’re using a concealer to minimize the appearance of blemishes, apply directly to problem areas.
Step 4.To highlight your face using a liquid or cream concealer, place small dots in the following areas:
- Horizontally over the center of your forehead
- Down the center of your nose
- Under your eyes
- In a curving arch at the top of your chin, just under your bottom lip
Gently blend it into the surrounding skin, and always be sure to cover it with a foundation setting powder.
Using a large, fluffy powder brush, begin by dusting a light coat of powder all over your face. Press the bristles into the powder, then sweep across the skin in long, arching strokes.
