These are the foundation tricks that you need to be aware of to improve how you put on makeup

Applying foundation can seem daunting at first. What consistency do you want? Which tools do you need? Without a little expert guidance, the whole process is off-putting.
In reality, foundation application can be effortless with a little advance prep and a few tricks up your sleeve. For most of these, you already own exactly what you need, and you can even improvise along the way and still achieve a flawless application.

1. Moisturize and prime in one step
If you're out of primer, don't fret. A good quality moisturizer creates a smooth, hydrated base for foundation. Makeup artists swear by this one.
2. Color correct before you apply foundation
We all have a few discolored spots, and treating them first will ensure your foundation doesn't have to work too hard.

3. Loosen thick foundation with facial serum
If your foundation has tightened up, making it difficult to apply, try mixing it in your hand with a few drops of your favorite facial serum.
4. Lighten your foundation the easy way
If your glorious summer tan has faded, and your foundation is too dark, don't rush out to buy a new shade. White color adjusting drops can easily lighten your perfect foundation to match your lighter skin tone.
5. Start with the right tool
Foundation can look heavy, especially if you begin with too much product and the wrong tool. Use the back of your hand as a palette, then dip your foundation brush in the product and begin in the center of your face. Blend outward, not down, for the most natural look.

6. Blend away tell-tale signs
You may be tempted to skip this step, but a quick once over with a beauty sponge will eliminate any streaks or lines and ensure your foundation melds seamlessly with your skin.
