Are You Making These Simple Foundation Mistakes

Are You Making These Simple Foundation Mistakes?

It’s not easy to achieve the perfect base. These foundation mistakes may be the reason your makeup isn’t behaving the way you want.

Often, we don’t realize we’re making simple foundation mistakes that affect our whole look. Achieving a flawless base is the key to any popping makeup look, but it’s not easy!

Does your base pill, slide, rub off, or separate throughout the day? Could these simple foundation mistakes reveal the reason why?

If you use a primer before you apply your base, amazing! It can help smooth enlarged pores, mattify oily skin, or welcome hydration to dry skin. It’s a fantastic multi-tasking product that increases both the appearance and longevity of your makeup.


Find out what could be behind your makeup woes and most importantly, how to fix them!

Water vs. silicone

Primer and foundation need to get along for that flawless face look. To find if they’re made for each other, you’ll need to determine whether they’re water-based or silicone-based. Look through the ingredients list or Google the product to find out!

If you’re using a water-based primer with a silicone-based foundation, it could explain why your makeup is slipping and sliding. Mixing a silicone-based primer with a water-based foundation? Watch as they part ways on your face! When buying your next primer or foundation, make sure they’re made of the same base to avoid makeup troubles.

What works for my skin?

Silicone-heavy and water-heavy products generally don’t mix well together. Opt for a water-based primer and foundation to hydrate dry, sensitive skin, or a silicone-based primer and foundation to help keep oily skin looking matte throughout the day.
