Clearing The Creases In Your Foundations

When we wear foundation, most of us do so to give our skin that flawless finish. And, when we’re young, near enough any product seems to do that job. As soon as we start to age, though, we find that we’re dealing with the worst foundation flaw of all – exaggerated creases.

The sad fact is that, as we get older, our makeup has a harder job to appear flawless. This is especially the case when it comes to fundamental pieces like foundation. At the development of even fine lines, you may begin to find that your foundation doesn’t stay in place. Instead, it hugs every line and creases in the worst areas. By the end of the day, you can’t help but feel that you would look younger without any foundation at all.

That doesn’t mean you need to go cold-turkey on the products you love most. But, it does mean you might want to consider the following ways to clear creases in your foundation from now on.

 

Find ways to lessen the appearance of wrinkles

Seeing as fine lines and wrinkles are the main reason these creases keep happening, you may want to address the issue at its source. It figures that lessening these issues can help to address foundation creasing. In minor cases, you may find that moisturizer can hydrate your skin so much that fine lines near enough disappear. If the situation is a little more extreme, you could even book yourself for some wrinkle relaxing treatments which can also see lines lessen across your face. This way, there are fewer areas for your foundation to crease in the first place and thus less chance of it happening.

 

Remember that less is more

If your foundation is clinging in the wrong places, it’s possible that you need to remember how much less can be more. When we’re young, we can all cake foundation on like there’s no tomorrow. As we age, though, doing the same is sure to lead to trouble. While your impulse will be to wear more, you’ll be far better off reducing how much foundation you use. Ensure you still get the same results by adjusting your color or opting for full-coverage options. Then, dab on small amounts at a time, and stop as soon as you think you’ve covered everything.

 

Become familiar with base layers

Base layers are also your friend if creases are getting you down. These do what they say on the tin, and can provide a smooth layer on which to apply your foundation. Pick the right base layer, and you should find that creasing near enough comes to an end. You may want to opt for a primer, many of which focus on reducing pores and wrinkles for this exact reason. Or, you may prefer a BB cream which can provide even more coverage. Either way, using these as a base layer is sure to see your skin looking as smooth as it did when you were young.

Beauty Glazed Eye Shadow Palette “Saturn”

I am loving my new eye shadow palette by Beauty Glazed! Love, LOVE, LOVE!! When I saw this palette on Amazon I knew that I had to take a chance on it. It was only $7.88, so I ordered. The colors were just perfect for me and I love the size of the palette. It fits perfect in my travel makeup case. As you see, this palette has 9 shades in both matte and shimmery finishes. It has nice beautiful warm tones. The pigmentation is BANANAS for such an affordable palette! It is super rich in color and the shadows blend easily! I highly recommend you try these palettes.

Be sure to check out Beauty Glazed Palettes!! I highly recommend them!

Here is a recent look that I was able to create using only the “Saturn” palette by Beauty Glazed.

BLK OPAL Foundation Sticks

BLK Opal foundations are really nice. I use these alot because they are full coverage and affordable! I purchased these from Walmart for $9.97 each (worth every cent!).

I have them in the shades “Carob” “Champagne Beige”, and “Truly Topaz”.

There are 16 shades of the BLK Opal foundation sticks to choose from.

“Truly Topaz” is my true foundation shade, I use “Carob” as my contour shade and “Champagne Beige” has my highlight shade. I really love the look and the finish of this combination.

These sticks are so creamy and blendable. I use my Sigma Flat Top Kabuki brush to blend the foundations.

For the price, these sticks are amazing! These are great for both beginners and advanced makeup wearers.

This foundations are said to blur pore appearance, conceal imperfections and achieve natural looking skin with this creme stick foundation. Perfect for highlighting, contouring, touch-ups and seamless full coverage applications, this best- selling formula delivers moisturized, even-toned flawless complexion.

BLK Opal “Champagne Beige”

Though I will advise using a really great setting powder and setting spray to set the foundation.

I can successfully wear this foundation,with my super oily skin, for just about 12 hours before I can feel and visibly see my foundation begin to move and separate. I do have to tell you that no matter what I use to set my face with after having using my BLK Opal, I still have a shine.

Nonetheless, I have really been enjoying the coverage and the ease of application being that this foundation is in stick form.

I highly recommend that you try BLK Opal foundation sticks if you are in the market for a good foundation stick. And too, these are great MUA kit “Must Haves” because they are easy to travel with and easy to use.

Secure The Wig Sis!! I Tried The Bald Cap Method

 

This bald cap method seems to be the trend and the key to having your wig lay flawless flat around the perimeter of your head.

So… I decided to give it try as I had a photoshoot recently and I needed mIy wig to behave. It just wouldnt be a good look having my wig sliding around on my head or the lace blowing in the wind to expose my stocking cap! How embarrasing right?!?

Let me say that the bald cap method is extremely effective. My wig stayed in place for 3 days ( though it could have stayed a couple more days). This method does take just about 30mins give or take… mind you that this was my very first time attempting this.

Though I did make a few mistakes along the way that I quickly learned from.

Here are the things you need to do this method:

  • Blow dryer
  • comb
  • got2b glued gel
  • got2b Blasting Spray
  • beige or skin toned stocking cap

Shayla x Colourpop Perception Palette & C’mon Sis Lipstick

Recently Ive said that I would not buy another darn eyeshadow palette! I have so many palettes and I can admit that they all almost look the same! Yep, I said it! But when I saw the MakeupShayla and Colourpop collaboration, it was a no brainer! I knew it had to have it for a few reasons! 1, I wanted to see Shayla win and 2, the palette had all of my favorite colors in one palette!! It’s perfection! 

I honestly didnt expect these shadows to be soooo smooth and soft! They feel and perform like luxury shadows, such a pleasant surprise! Especially for the price point. This palette is only $23!

There are three lipsticks in the collaboration collection, I only purchased one. I purchased “C’mon Sis”, this lipstick was the right choice for me, as I love pinky nudes.

This is the look I created today using the palette and the lipstick! Nice wearable everyday look. Save $5 on your Order from Colourpop! https://www.talkable.com/x/JNCXWZ

Cut Crease Stamper!! Cut Crease in Seconds!!

Finally got my hands on the cutcrease stamping tool. I ordered it from Amazon.  https://amzn.to/2Lj3QB0

Its totally made of silicon for easy use and easy clean up! Using the tool is very easy, all you do is coat the tool with a full coverage concealer, position it on your eyelid, then press it firmly to your lid to ensure that the concealer transfers to your lid. I used LA Girl Pro Conceal concealer as my cutcrease base.

Once the concealer is on the lid, gently blend the edges… then apply lid color of your choice. Here is the result of my first time using this stamper.

Great for beginners who are not yet comfortable at creating a cutcrease using only brushes. Also good for client use as well, makes for a speedy application process and it still looks very skilled and neat!

Very easy to clean, just wipe it off with a makeup remover wipe or a form of wet wipe!
