Uh-oh, You Went Overboard With the Foundation?

By November 6, 2012

Follow me on:

Around this time of the year, women everywhere are reaching into their makeup drawers or bags or cabinets and pulling out the foundation. So what to do if you make a mistake and apply too much? Try these tricks I picked up from Sephora Brand The Ultimate Guide To Makeup, Skin, and Hair From The Beauty Authority.

Ross Burton, a Lancome makeup artist, suggests putting a dime-sized amount of moisturizer on a foundation brush and working the brush over your face. If you don't have a foundation brush, your fingers should do. Another Burton trick is to separate a two-ply tissue, placing one ply on your face and moving it around to pick up the excess. I've used the first trick in the past entirely by accident and found it works great.
