1. Prep the skin.
No matter how good your bottle of foundation is, slathering it on flaky, dehydrated skin will only leave a finish that’s fake and obvious. Apart from primers, try massaging your face with hydrating serums for an extra boost of moisture, making it easy to work the foundation into the skin. According to Vogue, Bella Hadid and Zoe Kravitz also go as far as putting on sheet masks before foundation to begin with a supple base. While we don’t recommend doing this on a daily basis as it isn’t practical, it only proves the importance of prepping the face for a skin-like finish.
2. Keep it dewy.If you want your foundation to look more natural, it’s only right that you keep it as real as possible–this means you should retain that dewiness as if you’re not wearing any products. On the high points of your face (cheekbones, cupid’s bow, etc), sweep a dose of liquid highlight to add dimension to your face.
