1. Start with clean skin! Oil and dirt on your skin will prevent your foundation from becoming "one with your skin".
Wash cleanse and exfoliate your skin before applying foundation. This will also give your skin a nice glow.

2. Don't use an oily sunscreen or moisturizer before applying your foundation. Any oily base, will only prevent your foundation from binding to your skin. Oily moisturizers and sunscreens will also prevent your foundations from drying down.

3. PRIME! Priming your skin is essential, as this helps erase and smoothen out any bumpy textures on your skin. Some good primers are Mac fix plus ( even though it is a setting spray you can still use it to prime, it costs around R280 ) , Baby Skin from Maybelline and I love the Yardley Illuminating primer.
Also,you can even prime your eyelids with some concealer and set it with powder to prevent your shadow from creasing.

4. Bake your face! Apply a generous portion of setting powder using a powder brush or a beauty blender to the centre of your forehead, to your cheek bones and down the bridge of your nose. Let it set for about 15 minutes then brush it away! The power warms up on your skin and helps to set your foundation.

5.Set! Set your makeup, you can buy a setting spray eg, Mac fix plus OR make your own using some rose water and a little water. Put it into a spray bottle and there you have it. ONLY FOR ONCE IN A WHILE: If your going for an occasion and REALLY need your best efforts to stay put on your face, use hair spray! it actually works.

If you are ever unsure that your foundation is right for you, always ask for a tester to take home and use. always TRY before you BUY!
