    Laura totally agree so important to know your own skin tones before slavishly following a ‘look’. A good tip is to actually brush your foundation DOWNWARDS to finish rather than go against the fine facial down it gives a smoother finish. Controversial.

      I’m glad you agree with that. As a teen, I use to follow makeup looks without considering my own features and it rarely turned out well. I’d end up actually making my chin look bigger or cheeks less contoured. I was taught to apply foundation outwards, away from the centre of your face for an even coverage. Some artists do prefer blending downwards – the brush can sometimes alter blending technique (flat, kabuki etc.)

I would love to read your thoughts!
