Using primer is very important as it soothes the surface of your skin, minimises the appearance of fine lines and pores. It creates a barrier between the product and skin. It also helps foundation look natural and smooth. After washing your face with a gentle cleanser, you can apply the primer and blend it evenly.
Concealer is used to camouflage all your dark circles, acne marks, sun spots, and all face imperfections. Apply it on your face with a brush or your fingertips. Dab the concealer onto the top of each mark; then blend it softly.
Foundation acts as a blank canvas, therefore, select a foundation that matches your skin tone. After using primer and concealer, apply the foundation at the centre of your face, and then blend it around your face and harmonise it with your neck and hairline. Now end it up with a setting powder.
