Here’s the deal. Sometimes when we apply foundation, we get a little carried away in the coverage. And by we, I mostly mean me! I can’t help it. I see things that I want to cover and go back and add another layer to the area, move on, go back and add another layer until I’m happy with the result. But if I were to immediately powder after, the areas where the foundation hasn’t been absorbed in the skin or is in a little, ahem, excess, it’s going to get cakey in those areas. It’s just what happens when you apply powder until of “fresh” foundation. Which is why this trick is a lifesaver! Just take a second to blot the skin after you apply foundation (and cream blush/bronzer) but before you powder, accomplishing two things: 1. it absorbs the excess foundation that would have otherwise gotten “cakey” when you powdered it and 2. it really presses the product into the skin. Here’s how:

TOOLS:

  • ($$$) or ($)
  • ($) or  ($$)
  • Tissue
  • ($$)

STEPS:

  1. Apply foundation all over like you typically would.
  2. Stipple cream blush and/or cream bronzer.
  3. Place the tissue over your flat hand.
  4. Fold the “flaps” under and tuck with your outside fingers/thumb as Penelope demonstrated above.
  5. Press and roll your fingers on the skin..
  6. Lift your hand up and repeat in another area until you’ve blotted your whole face.
  7. Now you can go back and powder.
  8. Focus on your T-zone.
