How to get flawless foundation

Your rating: None
A flawless face instantly makes one look stunning and is the base for every makeup look. You too can get a flawless face with these steps.
What you'll need: 
Stipling brush
Translucent or regular face powder
Powder brush
After moisturising, prime your face using a face primer. Allow it to soak in for 10 minutes.
Using a stipling brush dot your foundation all over your face, then blend using the brush. A stipling brush will give you that 'flawless' look because of the brush type. However, make sure to get the right colour foundation, if you cannot find your shade, get a lighter colour and a darker colour mixing them till you get the desired shade.
Conceal your undereye circles using a concealer two shades lighter than your skin colour. Apply the concealer with your ring finger, as this is the gentlest, in a 'v' shape underneath your eyes making sure to locate your dark circles.
Conceal any blemishes using a flesh toned concealer, the warmth of your fingers will heat the concealer making blending easy.
Apply powder over your entire face using the powder brush to set your makeup and make sure it lasts all day. If you want more coverage use a powder in your shade, if you do not need any coverage use a translucent powder.
