Stick foundations are very easy to apply and very comfortable. Stick foundations are cream-to-powder foundations that come in stick form. With the coverage of a liquid and the precision of a concealer the foundation stick is appropriate for normal to oily skin types, but i don’t recommend it for those women with sensitive and dry skin.
The best advantage is that it can be also used as a concealer when applied over to problem areas and imperfections. Stick foundations provide full coverage and a matte finish, hide blemishes, scars, discolorations and brown spots. Most of these foundations contain sunscreens and moisturizing ingredients.
A stick foundation glides on effortlessly and stays on for 7 /8 hours. The stick system provides precise application and even touch-ups.
HOW TO APPLY:
1 Step Cleanse and tone your face
Always apply foundation to a cleansed and toned skin. Use a mild cleanser appropriate for your skin and cleanse your face thoroughly to remove all the impurities and oils that have accumulated during the night. Tone your skin with a toner that suits your skin.
2 Step Moisturize your skin
Always moisturize your skin before applying the foundation even if your skin is oily. The first step when applying makeup is the application of appropriate moisturizer according to your skin type. It will improve your skin quality and act as a protective layer to help trap the moisture in the skin and stop it from evaporation.
3 Step Apply the stick foundation
Roll up the tube and make sure the tip appears slightly above the container level. You can stroke the top of the stick with your fingers or apply the stick directly to your face. Roll the stick foundation over your face – foreheads, cheeks, nose and chin and blend carefully. Pay attention to areas where foundation tends to collect. Don’t forget to apply foundation to the neck, especially if you are using darker shade of foundation otherwise your face will look like a mask and unnatural. Make sure everything blends together and looks the same. Blend out to your hair and jaw line until the foundation vanishes. There should be no hard lines or patches.
