Most foundation formulas tend to be on the thicker side, which can be great for achieving full coverage. But sometimes you want a more natural look or need to sheer out your foundation for a more daytime appropriate finish. Here are a few tips on how to thin out foundation:
– Add a few drops of foundation to your moisturizer before applying it to your face. This will help to sheer out the formula and make it easier to blend.
– Use a beauty blender or damp makeup sponge to apply your foundation. This will also help to sheer out the product and give you a more natural look.
– If you’re using a liquid foundation, try using a foundation brush instead of your fingers. This will help to distribute the product more evenly and prevent you from using too much.
-Use a makeup brush or beauty blender to apply the foundation to your face in thin, even layers.
-Start with a small amount of foundation and build up coverage as needed.
-If your foundation is too thick, add a few drops of foundation primer or face oil to thin it out.
-If your foundation is too thin, add a small amount of loose powder to thicken it up.
-To achieve an airbrushed finish, use a damp beauty blender or makeup sponge to apply your foundation.
