Temptalia’s Tips

  1. Moisture your skin well; the better the real base, the better everything applies on top of that.  Give your moisturizer some time to absorb and sink in before applying anything on top of it.
  2. I like spritzing either my face or my foundation brush with a bit of water, which helps to sheer out the liquid foundation and give it added slip.  I find that we don’t need nearly as much foundation as we think, so it helps make any foundation sheerer and then enables me to go back over areas that need more coverage with without putting too much on everywhere.
  3. I like to give my foundation a few minutes to set before applying a finishing or setting powder on top, because this helps to keep the powder from sticking too much in any area (in the event that an area is slightly wet still) and minimizes any powderiness from application of setting/finishing powders later on.
