How to Avoid Cakey Foundation Like a Pro
Pulling rabbits out of hats is adorable and all, but we prefer an everyday kind of magic. You know, the way certain beauty products can turn us from sleep-deprived zombies into polished superwomen. One such makeup? Foundation. And while it doesn’t perhaps trigger the same excitement as say, the perfect nude-hued lipstick, it can transform your complexion–that is, when it doesn’t get all cakey. Fortunately, a cakey makeup fix isn’t as difficult as it seems.
First, make sure you moisturize. “Every time you cleanse your face, you’re removing parts of the natural oils and hydrators that keep your skin looking smooth,” says Dr. Rachel Nazarian of Schweiger Dermatology Group in NYC.
“Use a moisturizer after cleansing, and before you apply makeup, to ensure that the skin barrier is intact and healthy, which allows your makeup to sit more evenly on your skin,” she says.
