A little bit about foundation

Stipple across your forehead and into the hairline Take a liquid foundation you wish to use

You can use a full coverage liq. foundation (choose a color that fits with your skin tone, if you dont know which color is best for you,you should ask the person in the shop where you buy your foundation,the best shops in Su where they give you good advise is: Glow (Hermi, Marretreite Mall, Anamoesstraat and Nassylaan), Runway (Hermi). Oke back to the liq. foundation apply an amount (the size of a nickle) onto the back of your hand or palette.

Take your palette or you flat top brush

Dip it into the foundation. Dot this onto your nose, the cheeks, around the borders of your face, and your chin 

Starting applying


Begin at your nose-the cheeks-around the borders of your face-Chin.
What's left over, you can use to stipple over the area above your lips and below your mouth

This next step is only if you regularly use foundation under your eyes, rather than or in conjunction with concealer. If you don’t, skip to the next step. Take a bit of foundation on the outer edge of your brush, and dot lightly under the eyes, concentrating the product at the lower inner corners where your undereyes are darkest. Stipple lightly over this area, taking the foundation applied under the eyes up and onto the eyelid and browbone.

Let your foundation set

Apply loose powder with a puff

Here is  Review on Avon Extra Lasting pressed powder© from my dear sister

This pressed powder is good for people who like to keep their make-up light. Just for someone like me, I don’t like to put on foundation if I’m just going out to the mall or the movies or just a simple family dinner. So I use this featherlight powder that gives my skin an even coverage and it’s sweat and water resistant! It also stands against heat and humidity and it comes with SPF 15, these are key features in makeup products for me considering I live in a very sunny and humid country.
This product is very good, it promises to stay on for 18 hours (but we all know that this is never true) but it stays on long enough. So I guess that’s not that big of a problem.
I use the pressed powder in the shade Medium. Whenever I put it on my face I first use a moisturizer, let it set for about 3-5 minutes and then I dust the powder on with a Kabuki brush by The Body Shop©. The powder comes in a mirrored compact and has a sponge applicator but I find it better to dust the powder with a brush so it comes on evenly and it blends better than with the sponge.
I really love this powder, not only because it stays on for quite some time, but also because it doubles as a eyeshadow base. Because it’s a long-wearing powder I find it quite handy that I can use it as a base for something else. I just bring the powder on my eyelids with my ringfinger, just apply a tiny bit, and then I put on my eyeshadow. And it really helps against creasing.
The Avon extra lasting pressed powder is also good for those who have very oily skin, it gives you that matte finish that lasts for quite some time. The powder can also be used to set your foundation, so if you have put on maybe a liquid or mousse foundation, you can lightly dust this powder on your face to help your foundation stay on longer.

And here is my review on the foundation I use

This is a sheer make up for light coverage. Beautifying sheer tint. It creates an even-toned complexion with its oil free, sheer, tinted makeup. Protects skin SPF 15 and contains grape sees; green tea extracts' and vitamins A, C and E. 1.3 fl OZ cost only $8.
I love this foundation because it is not too much on my face, it smells great and it's healthy. And after applying this I put Ideal Flawless Pressed Powder of Avon
C Thru U foundation and the shades

Ideal Flawless compressed Powder

Medium shades Mark.

I also order these products ( send me a message if you're intrested, only people in my country though)
